It's hard to think of Winter and Christmas when our weather has been so lovely - it has been in the 60s the last couple of days, and will hit 70 today! What a nice way to bring in November!
The time is flying by and very soon I will be holding the
12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
I'm so excited to have some of my dearest blogging friends join me in sharing tutorials and recipes to make your season bright! There will be Christmas crafts, patterns and tasty family treats! Mark your calendars and join us for this wonderful festive time!
We would appreciate it if you could share the news of our Blog Hop on your blog and/or Facebook pages! Feel free to right click the image to save to your blog and provide a link back here, where each day the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop will begin!
Tomorrow I will be posting the second part of my Renovation sale, so stay tuned.
Remember last week when I told you about two big announcements, and joked that no...no new grandbabies yet.....WELL....the joke was on me, as we just found out last Sunday that our oldest son and his wife are expecting again!!!!! So happy for them and cannot wait to greet our new grandbaby in May.
You will also recall that I told you about our renovations here at our 1830 home. I've discovered while emptying out the room, that I need to declutter a bit, and will be hosting Part One of my Renovation Sale, tomorrow, October 23 - Part Two will be next Friday.
I will have many antiques and collectibles up for grabs......See you then!
I've got a couple of news goodies to share with you, and the first is to announce that....
no...no more grandbabies...yet.....lol
I 've been busy preparing for a
12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
I've been working behind the scenes, contacting some of my favorite bloggers, to see if they would like to be part of a blog hop this Christmas time. Now, you know I have done my
12 days of Christmas Celebration for several years now, but I thought it would be fun to get others involved as well, so this year I will be hosting a Blog Hop!
Most details to follow, but mark you calenders!
I've got some talented ladies lined up to share tutorials and recipes with you!
My next announcement is a special sale, here on my blog.
We are renovating a portion of our home right now, and while removing items from the room, I am finding that I have way too many things! So, I'm going to be selling off some of my collections, and hopefully, you will find something you have to have.
The sale will begin next Friday, the 23th. That will give me time to take photos and determine prices.
Hope to see you then!
I'll post a reminder next week for those who wish to attend.
If anyone is interested in purchasing some black walnuts for making your own walnut stain, I will be happy to box them up for you. All I would ask is $5 plus the cost of shipping, no matter how many pounds you buy. I'll even include the recipe for turning these into that wonderfully prim stain!
Just popping in to say Hello and let you know that I haven't forgotten about you all.
I've had a few big orders, which have kept me very busy. In addition, I'm trying to make a some extra Fall/Halloween goodies to offer for sale.
The weather has been beautiful, so I'm also trying to squeeze in some much needed yard work before that old north wind blows again. It sure is beginning to get dark early...I love the colors and smells of Fall, but in my heart, I'm a Summer gal.
Here's a cutie I finished up yesterday. She's available on my FB page right now, but will be headed to Etsy soon. I wasn't pleased with the pictures I took, so I will be redoing them in a better light...she looks bright orange and not as adorable as she really is.
