Hey there everyone..it is cooollldd and blustery today..and it seems it took a hour to upload these photos..like 2 minutes each..Yesterday I went to a gift show with my friend Sarah and her Cousin and kids to my favorite gift show!!! there is so much wonderful stuff to see as you will see in these photos..she sells lots of vintage type items, handmade goods by her and her husband as well..they didn't put out all the stuff either..so next week it officially opens the day after thanksgiving and runs till the week before christmas...be sure to click on the photos to see what she has..you might even get some inspiration from some of these..I know I did..
a closet full of silver and pewterware..loved it.
I love these little villages..I got 2..you will see them later in the post.;)
these are some of the handmade ornaments she makes as well as commercial ones...
that clock is fabulous..but look behind it..it is old sheet music decopauged on a wall board..it makes great wallpaper..
Bob made this apothecary chest..I tell you if I had a huge kitchen..it would have been scooped up..love all the vintage little elves..
one of many christmas trees..;)
I love these 3 snowman on a board that says let is snow..each has a different face..done with felt..such a cute idea.;) and I love the snowman heads attached to bottles on the mantle..very whimscial indeed.;)
I loved this idea..those old rulers that we grew up with.( I remember playing with one of these that my dad had)..and made into stars...ingenious or what?
this red and white hutch is usually outside on the porch..but they brought it in and filled it with yummy goodness..I love the way the lights reflect off of it.;)
The kitchen christmas tree..I love this corner..I always find something here..and I did 2 wooden spoons for my collection..I love the wear and patina on them..lots of yummy homemade cookin I bet..
as I was leaving I noticed this fence like garland on the front porch and I tole Carolee how neat it was..she said I could have the whole box for $2.00..I couldn't pass up that deal.. I am going to use it for our ward church christmas party in December..but I would love!!! some ideas on how to use it in my home for my holiday decorating..so if anyone has them.please pass them my way..
we interrupt your regularly scheduled programing for some token kittys photos..what is it about boxes
or bags...that is pody lynn in both of them..I have since taken off the handles so they don't get caught up in them..By the way Sunny is feeling much better..no more watery eyes.;) still sneezing some..but the clavimox seems to be helping.;) now hubby has it..(not by her) but by the folks at his work..okay back to our regular program..
I purchased these cute little logs of different sizes they were a dollar each..they are going to be a gift..I just put the candles in for photo purposes..
This is going in hubbys stocking..This fits him to a T!!! he can slam someone so good they don't know what hit them..me on the other hand..you will know..what does that tell you...I need to work on my "TACT"..;)
here are my 2 wooden spoons..
my little christmas village..this will go with my other one that I purchased a couple of years ago..you can put lights in the back..I can't wait to light these up on my kitchen window if they will fit this year..
my favorite find of the day..an old vintage linen with hand made stitching on it..Carolee turned it into a pillow...I just had to have it..looks so prim..
and this is where it ended up..on my bed along with a pillow in front that I won from the prim pals giveaway and the pillow behind is one I did...:) well I am cooking for our church dinner.. I have the sweet potato casserole ready to go in the oven at pm..I will be tossing in the turkey at 1:30pm..(thats a half hour away..will go down now and get it prepped.. I also have to make turkey gravy and then put this all in my car..and be to church by 5pm to get ready for dinner by 6pm..My friend Peggy stopped by and took just about all my thanksgiving decor to decorate the stage and tables...I am taking my camera so I can post pictures of our dinner tonight..I can't wait to see how she decorated it up..I hope you all stay nice and toasty today..I am going downstairs to light a fire to take off the chill..so its toasty when Mike and Tucker come home tonight..doesn't seem he will be going with me as he doesn't want to spread his cold with everyone..and I can't blame him..he is miserable..Thanks for stopping by to say hi..OH I almost forgot..I got the cutest little freebie in my neighborhood yesterday..but can't post it as it is a gift..hubby has to fix something on it..it is flipping adorable..will post it after christmas.;)
