Hello there..I started this entry this morning..and then had to run to the hairdressers to get her to fix my hair..I got it colored last saturday november 27th..and it just wasn't right..so I think we got it fixed this time..the blonde parts were not blond and the red parts weren't red enough..but when I woke up this morning..I had an email telling me that I had won Jennys kitty penny rug!!! we donated money to help her spay and neuter cats (strays) in her area and she made this rug and my number came up and I was the winner winner chicken dinner!!!! This will go so nicely in my home with my other cat stuff..thanks Jenny for picking my number..;) you know I will treasure this always..and if you can she would love and can use any donation that you can afford to help these wee ones.;)
This sweet little kitty came from a swap that I did over at the prim pals forum..and I met a wonderful crafter named Cyndy..she makes the best stuff and they are having a big giveaway as we speak..:) you can also see what I gave to her.;)
she also made me this really cute stocking with the santa and snowman..it is hanging on the window next to the woodstove..
and last but not least..she made this cute tree and kitty and this is in my upstairs bathroom..see the little boxes that look like presents...they are actually jewelry boxes that my holiday earrings came in from Avon..they are the purrffeeccctt size for this little tree..
on the front of the kitty is says "twas the night before xmas"..I love this..she also makes lots to sale too..so stop by and say hi to Cyndy..;)
here is the upstairs bathroom..nothing fancy..just some holiday towels.;)
here is the downstairs bathroom..the cats won't leave this tree or my fir tree on the kitchen table alone..not sure why they like to chew on them..;)
Friday Sarah and I and her 3 kids (the girls are hers) Natalye, Nykol and Naylin(not shown) and the little boy here here is Ashton..she baby sits him..no school on friday so we took them all..they had fun I think..they were good sports..I told them to go and stand by the pumpkin headed santa so we could get their pictures.. you see natalye is posing..she is 4 and is all girl..and loves to be made up and wear pretty dresses etc..she is too funny..Nykol is our little tom-girl..I love her...we get along so good with these little gals..;) we went to their house last night for fun and games..I made homemade pizza for everyone and we took it to them..it was devouered...
Here is my friend Dixie (she used to be my boss at Joanns)..she hired me actually..she makes stained glass and other beautiful creations..I asked her to pose in front of her stuff..I got a cute little stained glass santa ornmament..shown below a ways down..you will see it on my tree..she has a cute little shop in bremerton (for you locals) and she teaches classes...see the flattened wine bottles that are now like spoon rests..she teaches these..I think Sarah and I might have to do that sometime..she has wonderful pieces to purchase...I also got Sarah something for her tree.;)
this is the only prim/country set up at this show..and my stuff is even more prim...she is the owner of this show..I purchased some of her snowmen a couple of years ago..and she has an excellent memory and remembered me by name..I am impressed..I loved her display and had to get some of her things too..shown below..her display was a shelf turned sideways to make those cubbys..I just thought it was genious!!!
Here is Janice..she owns the hazelcreek farm where I do her show normally..she was a cute little elf selling baked goods..oh they were yummy..look at her shoes.:) she is a sweet lady..:)
the santa glass ornament...
my little santa tree topper...out of an old quilt..I lost a bunch of photos today not sure what happened..but i got a cute little stained/grungy snowman..it sits on a little candle shelf next to my blanket crane..he fills it up nicely..
Okay here is the great mistake part of the entry..I ordered some stuff from Factory direct .com and I got my package(s) last thursday ..but didn't open them till sunday..and noticed that it was a duplicate box of stuff..there was some stuff I hadn't ordered and other stuff that I had..I got these 4 prim electric candles and this is where I put them...I emailed them of their mistake that they sent 2 boxes and that I hadn't placed that other order..how did they want me to return the items..cause i didn't have the money to purchase all of the other stuff..and because it was their mistake..would they give me a discount on the items and I might consider keeping it all? well...they emailed me back and said I could keep it all cause it was their mistake...!!!!! yippee skippy!!! did I ever score..:)
I got to keep all of this above with 4 more of those electric candles..2 silicone dipped light sets..a package of wooden stars..a pip garland..2 packages of crows
a set of scalloped curtains and 7 homespun towels...my original order was 12 of these towels and a set of the curtains (for 2 windows) 2 pkgs of wooden stars, a pip berry garland, 2 of the silicone dipped lights..so did I make out like a bandit or what? one set of curtains is going in our bedroom and the other set is going in the guest bedroom..will take photos when I get them hung..what a nice merry christmas to me..pays to be honest folks..:)$100 in retail..;)
here are my ornament/cabinet pillows that I finished..they are my etsy site..
I finished this penny rug table runner on saturday night..it too is listed in my etsy..I love the way this one turned out..
and I will list this one tomorrow on my etsy site..if anyone is interested let me know.:).well that is it for me..I had a wonderful day of running around..I need to go and fix dinner and sit by the cozy fire my hubs made for us..our little next door neighbors have their outside all decked out and it looks so pretty..3 of us right in a row all decorated for the holidays..warms my soul.;) I hope you all had a great weekend...and a great week coming up..;) until next time thanks for stopping by and Hi to all my newest followers..:)
