Good evening my friends. It's been a long week and I haven't had a chance to blog for several days. I decided I was going to give myself a few minutes to catch up tonight. Right in the middle of getting the shop ready for the holidays, sewing, and helping Dick get things done, our renters decided to move out with NO NOTICE! Of course, the house is never the way you left it, so we have been cleaning, sorting, repairing and getting our great old homestead ready for new renters to look at tomorrow. I'll sure be glad when this is over so we can get back to "normal".
Tomorrow evening is Ladies Nite Out in downtown Holly. If you're in the area, be sure to not miss out on this fun event. The whole town is aglow with lights, there will be pink balloons throughout the village, a disc jockey will be in the streets, and each shop will have their own special spin on the evening. We will have treats, door prizes and Dan Hayes will be singing live in Zanie Janie's Simply Coffee - right through our French doors. We restocked the shop this week and have lots of goodies that would make wonderful gifts for the holidays.

I'm crazy over these prim candle holders and the wax candy canes.

The old crow is in a feedsack attached to a sled. All you have to do is take it home and set it on your porch!

Have you seen the Billy Jacobs clocks? They seem to fly out of the shop every time we get an order.

We are so lucky to have several pieces painted by our very own Sharon. This old tin turned bird seed container is a beauty!

The OLD wooden teddy bear wagon is very special. In fact, I could sure see it in my own house!

We have bowl racks, noodle boards, trenchers, door hangers and lots more wooden pieces to choose from. Yesterday we got a big shipment of the little rice lights, all kinds of battery candles, holiday cutting boards, picture frames, stockings and more, more, more!

I can't wait to see all of the young gals dancing in the street, smiling faces and everyone just having a great time. Hope we see some of you in the shop!

By the way, we got our first snowfall today. The shop was so cozy with the pretty lights, music and the still of the snow. I could have stayed there all evening.

Hope you're all having a comfy, cozy night!

Until next time...
