Just A Glimpse...


A glimpse of the sun this morning while waiting for the coffee to brew...but that may be the only sighting today.  A cold front roared through last night and it's chilly today and looks to be a gray day.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving gathering here.  One son by love cooked the turkey in a metal trash can and the other son by love took care of the ham on the grill.
Made it much easier for me.

Heading up to the studio in a few...have some orders to ship and others to paint. Planning to pull out the Christmas decorations tomorrow.  Lou wants to put up a small train garden, which he hasn't done for years...but thinking the 3 year old grandson will love it.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

"Vintage" Christmas Tree Ornaments

Found these birdcage Christmas tree ornaments on etsy last night. When I was a child, my Grandfather gave me one of these in the pink color. I still put it on my tree every year. I have quite a few special, vintage (old) decorations that came from family and are precious to me. Love how the listing says made in the mid 1900's...wow does that make me feel old.

Days are just flyin' by...


Lots going on 'round here lately...Our busy season has begun (as you can tell by my absence) and the daughters have been pitching in, giving us a hand wherever they can.  Meagan has been working on signs and helping with shipping. Holly and the grandbabies have been here a couple days a week lending a hand...Dylan brings his talking hammer and saw and works on the box of unpainted blocks I have in the studio.  Mariah will be 8 months old in a few days and she's into everything.  Lou, Holly and I take turns loving her when she gets fussy. This afternoon I was able to have the children all to myself while Lou and Holly worked in the shop..  My heart just about bursts with loving these two wonderful kids.


Holly has been pitchin' in doing whatever we need done and she also has been designing and creating holiday garlands for the Country Workshop website





  
Garlands can be found in the Banners and Garland section of the website.

Custom banners for weddings, baby showers and birthday parties will be availabe soon as well personalized garlands for children's rooms.
