Getting Ready For The Show!

Life has gotten very busy as of late.

I've been sewing up a storm, painting, pricing and cleaning.

So much to get ready for as the Christmas Show at Monticello is four days away.

Time did stand still for a little while as my #1 had hernia surgery a week ago.

His surgery went well and he is on the mend now.

It was a cold Thanksgiving with temperatures in the 20's.

We even got a light dusting of snow.

My family and I did take a four day break and went to visit my sister and her family for Thanksgiving.

It is good to see family and I do miss seeing them.

Remember if you're in the area be sure to visit Monticello.

The Show opens Friday, December 3rd at 8:00am.

You're in for a real treat!

Portland Flower Market

I have been so caught up with "Mall Cops" the past couple of days.

I found it on Netflix last night and it fascinates me!

Hopefully, there's not a Season 2!

Otherwise two more days...

Yesterday, I got the chance to visit the Portland Flower Market with a couple of sweet friends, Kari and Kathryn

You need to be a member to visit so this was a special treat.

Besides flowers there were Fall and Christmas items.

Candles, glass, paper....

ribbon and more ribbon...

And then we went to the flowers....

Some of the most beautiful fresh flowers.

Beautiful....just beautiful!

I had a great time!

Thanks ladies!

A Beautiful White Wednesday!

I'm afraid I wasn't too creative with the White Wednesday post this week.

I've got so many projects in the fire as well as ideas running through my head.

If I just had a few more that would be great!

The pictures you see are a few of the finds from this past week-end.

I'm building up my stock for the Christmas Show at Monticello.

It just blows me away how quickly Christmas is approaching.

If you are in town the show will open December 3rd and run through the 27th.

I also wanted to do a little shout out for my sweet friend Jo from Secret Garden Cottage

She is celebrating her 6 month blogging anniversary.

She is giving away some wonderful gifts, so be sure to enter.

Thank you for stopping by!
