Have you been naughty or nice?








What will your stocking be filled with?
I love to hang mine and fill them with shredded vintage paper.
These will be at the Farmhouse later this week, so come and find
yourself a treasure.

More Peeks ..

Sure hope you can come and see our booth at the Farmhouse this week, it's going to be a fabulous show. We've got LOTS of new treasures and there's sure to be lots more from our favorite vendors.

How do you say THANKS?

Sometimes words seems so inadequate.

A few weeks ago I was surprised and so honored to recieve the most wonderful "treasures".
Someone that my sister works with had seen my art and wanted me to have a few special things that she had. When my sister delivered them I nearly cried. They are so beautiful.

I may have a hard time creating new treasures with them, they are treasures just as they are.

Thank you so very much, Karen. I will always treasure your generosity.


The beautiful quilt




The perfect amount of love and "wear"



The most amazing vintage book ... can you believe?  full of everything a woman would need to know.



A game called gossip ... this book just makes me giggle




 

This special book was even used as a leaf press .. found this "impression" on one of the pages



Eve's pudding .. don't you just love the name?


Even delicious illustrations



My thank you card






So may ways to say thank you ...

But my words and art are inadequate for expressing my sincere
gratitude.


Farmhouse Show

Amy and I are working on lots of fun holiday treasures for Aunt Bee's Farmhouse show - just one week away.

Eeeeks .. the spiders have moved in.

This is what happens when you're working on creating things for a show and you ignore your housework.
Thank goodness they all seem very friendly and my children adore them.

"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."- Jacques Cousteau
