Finally, back to pictures of some great new things we have in the shop! I was SOO lost without my camera! It's hard to see in the front window, but it is loaded with witch goodies, tin chandelier and spooky cobwebs! We have lots of bittersweet, Sweet Annie and wreaths to offer.
It isn't quite fall without a Sweet Annie wreath! So wonderful to hang by your back door - what an aroma for visitors!

Isn't this child's ironing board adorable!? $29.95

One of several new witches! Starting at $16.95
Lots of Halloween (and other) necklaces made by Kari. From $14.95 to $24.95

Another Sweet Annie wreath. $29.95
Cute wooden witch sign. $24.95

These handmade baby hats, mittens and booties are just the sweetest things! What great shower gifts. $24.95/set
Terri and I had the best time making these colonial sugar cones and they smell so yummy. $7.95/ea.
Cutest old chippy tan kitchen cupboard with the pull-out cutting board. $94.95
More wreaths, ornies and Sweet Annie ($9.95/bunch)

Great old bench filled with Halloween goodies.

Halloween is everywhere!
This reproduction candy container is the best! Take off his top hat and fill with candy. $29.95
Turkey/Thanksgiving sign. $19.95
Halloween sign. $19.95
Bunches of bittersweet. $9.95/bunch
Keep watching cuz I'm supposed to get in LOTS more by next Tuesday! Can't wait - even if some of it is Christmas (can you believe that) - there will still be lots for now.
Tonight was my step-son's (hate that word) wedding rehearsal. It was so much fun to watch the grandchildren having such a great time.
Rich and Val getting ready to take the plunge!
Step-daughter Tricia and her husband, Tad, flew in from Oregon this morning. Hope we get a chance to spend a little one-on-one with them.
Granddaughter Sydney - one of the flower girls.
Granddaughter Ellie (a/k/a Peanut - she calls me Grandma Peanut), another flower girl. She is truly the dearest little girl.
Grandson Jack (making a funny face) will be a ring "Barrier" (as Gannon used to call it.)
Granddaughter Caroline - next to the youngest of all of our grandchildren.
And finally, my "first best boy" Gannon. He better save his old grandma a dance!
Well gals, hope you have a wonderful weekend. This is going to be a busy one for us! What a great way to celebrate my birthday - to be surrounded by my family at a giant party (um, wedding)!
Hope to starting painting and taking some pictures for you next week.
Until next time...
