Good chilly evening my friends. Is there anything better, at the end of the day, then to come home to a cozy home, some candlelight, and soft music? The weather really changed today and we had more snow flurries, just a taste of what is yet to come. It really is starting to feel like the holidays, but I'm not quite ready to start decorating for Christmas at home quite yet - maybe next weekend (after Thanksgiving).

Our little pretend fire and a few white lights can do wonders for the soul. A nice hot cup of coffee and a pair of comfy pj's is all that the doctor ordered.

I'm so excited! My friend Debbie is coming to Michigan tomorrow from North Carolina. She will be spending most of the weekend with us and we have a lot to catch up on. She will be taking lots of goodies back for her booth at The Depot - so you should go check it out!

Feeling a little nostolgic tonight with the holidays coming. This will be the first year without Dad and he LOVED everything about every holiday, especially spending time with his family. Enjoy every moment with your loved ones, there's nothing more important.

The shop felt so great tonight when I locked the front door. The music was still playing, all of the twinkle lights were on, the candle was burning and I could have just stayed there all night. I took lots of new handmades in today, so come on in and check us out!

Well friends, not too much new to report today, I've just been missing all of you. Have a wonderful evening!

Until next time...


  1. Very cozy! It is very calming with the little white lights and the fireplace!

  2. I agree. Nothing like being home snuggled in with something hot to drink, wearing old pj's, and just being.

  8. Dawn, Is there anything better than one's own home, I think not. I love this time of year, the weather becomes chilly, the house is warm with the fragrance of apple cider heating on the woodstove. Heaven. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Blessings, Julie.

  9. OH MY goodness! My friend Jill talks about the Depot all the time - she loves going there! I will have to tell her to look out for Debbie's booth.

    I know you worked hard to make your space into your new home so you could be with your mom and I hope it blesses you and shelters you at the end of each day. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with that wonderful growing family of yours and I hope Black Friday is a huge success!! Big hugs across the miles!! <3
