Happy Thanksgiving!

I am working hard to get ready for the craftacular this weekend! It has especially challenging considering I got sick AGAIN, more car troubles this time with our toyota(which has been a great car) and with all of that I am using every spare moment to restock the shop and get ready for this weekend! I can't wait! I hope everyone has a peaceful and lovely Thanksgiving and I am so thankful for all that I have been and am blessed with!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Tis' the season!

Well almost and the last few years I have been wanting to make some sort of christmas ornament! I have a small obsession with scrap booking paper (even though I don't scrap book) It is almost as wonderful as fabric, so many colors and designs to choose from! I finally came up with these! I was up half the night working on them and I have a few done! I love them (smaller versions of some of my appliques)forest friends for your trees and just a touch of glitter... which is a little hard to see! They are headed to the shop with me :) ...and I made up a few cute pillows for our wicker chairs that we keep at the shop(sorry the pics are dark~ the lighting in my house is terrible!) Come and see them in person... we are open til' 6:00 pm Thursdays & Fridays! Enjoy your day!

Fall leaves & Thanksgiving.....

I have not posted in awhile and I drove up to my house today and the tree in our front yard is soooo stunning! The bright yellow leaves have just filled up our yard... and I just love it! That is one of the reasons I fell in love with our house! The trees! We have about 4-5 mature trees on our lot alone and we live in the middle of the city! :) Fall is finally here!
I also have to thank everyone who came out for the Nov. gallery walk! What an amazing night! Thank you all who support or lil' shop! It is starting to feel like the holidays in the shop. I put the trees in the windows tonight and have been adding some christmas like fabrics and gifts. Misha just got in the most amazing all natural candles! Yum! We are getting ready for the holidays!
I also have not posted about any thrifting in awhile~ probably because I have had no time to go until recently! I am feeling a little caught up so I took Monday off from everything and the kids and I went thrifting! I found these cute vintage candles.... for Thanksgiving! I love them! (My pics are a lil' crummy~ I suspect a fingerprint on the lense!) Happy Wed.
