I Am Thankful

I am thankful for my family and the day we had yesterday. Seeing everyone enjoy the meal prepared, the games afterwards and some of us even went to a movie. The grand kids wanted popcorn to nibble on while watching the movie. Where they could put it I am not sure but they managed.

The day was busy as I am sure it was for each of you.

A wonderful hand made Santa adds a special touch to a seasonal grouping. The greens are some that have just recently arrived. Long needle pine with weeping cedar added , softens the Santa.

This little primitive tree is hand made in Tennessee and can find a spot in the home anywhere. Notice the weeping cedar on the right behind the tree,the drape of this piece would be good on a mantle also.

Fan Back Chair

This fan back chair came in just before Open House and has been well received. I have a reorder coming soon but probably will not get here until after Thanksgiving. Will keep you updated.

Christmas Touches Everywhere

Cupboards are filled with Santa's, snowmen, red plates and of course greenery and berries.

The stockings are hung and prim angels grace this four foot tree.

From a previous post I mentioned I liking trees up on things, well this tree is on a saddle makers bench. More stockings hung but this time all over a tree. I like the red jingle bell picks that cascade through the branches.

This cupboard is filled with snowmen and perhaps a Santa or two. I love all their cheery faces peeking out.

Cozy Christmas

The Windsor chairs just came in last week , just in time for Open House. Touches of greenery and Santa complete the grouping in the red scoop. The tree is filled with gingerbread boys of all sizes and makes you almost want to go by and take a sniff.

The primitive two door cabinet is filled with gingerbread houses, popcorn balls and even a jar of marshmallows (not real). On top are three wonderful Santa's.

Open House This Week !!!

Festive,I think is a word that can describe the shop this week. Every nook and cranny has been decked out with holiday cheer. A few pictures and more to come as we celebrate the season this week.

Handmade snowmen of all sizes fill this tree that is placed in an old green meal bin. In the center of the tree notice the snow shovel tucked in the branches. The shovel went to a good home of a sweet customer.

This Vienna Twig tree is filled with Santa's, stockings and candy canes. The tree and Make do chair are sitting on a railroad cart. Unfortunately the cart is not seen in the picture. I like trees in different containers or placed on something unusual. It is that little unexpected that can make a setting interesting.

Last but certainly not the least are four creative ladies,Dianne, Norma, Merrilyn and Kathy. They spend two days helping me transform the shop into a Christmas event to be enjoyed by all. Without their help we might still be in all those boxes I showed you a few weeks ago. Also in the picture is Brian who helps on the first day writing tickets.
