Time to Decorate!

The song, "These are a few of my favorite things" is playing and I thought I'd share a few of my favorite ornaments with you, as it seems time to put up the tree! Almost the end of November, and now that we've feasted at Thanksgiving, the focus can be on December and decorating! Don't you love unwrapping all of the boxes of Christmas decor that have been packed away, and placing treasured ornaments on the tree. I love reminiscing and remembering when I received each one!

Enjoy the time spent decorating and creating new memories everyone!
(and thank you, Camilla, for the lovely photos seen here!)

All the best,

So Very Thankful!

So much to be thankful for! I know how very fortunate my husband and I feel again this year.
We have each other, our health, and our family and friends who mean so much. Does it get any better? We will be having a simple turkey dinner tomorrow, and will spend the day enjoying talking on the phone to family members who live far away. We'll take a long walk in the afternoon, reflecting on the many blessings we have.

I love being out in the country on Thanksgiving, it is so peaceful and tranquil, and allows me to feel the gratitude I have in my heart...

Wishing each of you a day filled with family, friends, and good food!
(I'll be making the pumpkin pies tonight and can't wait for the house to be filled with those yummy aromas from the kitchen. Let's eat!!)

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
All the best,

Snow sweet snow

It is a vision of white outside in our part of the world!
We got lots of big fat fluffy flakes starting yesterday, and it looks so very pretty!
This photo, taken by Camilla Emond, truly made me smile as it looks like the flocked trees
outside my shop window!
Take a moment today and enjoy the beauty of
our first real snow. Winter bliss!

all the best,

The Eve of Our Holiday Open House!!

So here is the sneak preview of our Holiday set up!
Our Open House begins in less than 12 hours, and yes, I am still here playing!
I can't seem to leave, as I keep finding one more thing to tweek, or adjust or straighten!!
and just wait till you see all the deliciousness we have in the shop for you to feast on!
Handmade pinwheels for your tree made of vintage music paper, old crystal bottle stoppers wired to hang on your tree, crocheted vintage ornaments, gold angels, peacocks and musical notes!
And then there are all of the amazing mirrors--an entire wall of them that will catch the flicker of our candles and twinkling of the hundreds of lights!

Okay,I am so filled with the holiday spirit, and with gratitude for my amazing team who put all of this together, and for all the blessings I have. Come see my "Blessed Christmas" theme , and partake in the spirit of the season--
and see you soon!
All the best,
