in it are tractor implements
that he also purchased
from the same woman he bought the wagon...
decorated of course, for the Seasons ~
you can bet that we'll be giving plenty of Hayrides
here in the fields for our
customers and Friends!!
We're beginning to get the new bolts of fabric here in the shop,
beautiful reproduction 1800's prints, feedsack prints, primitive florals...
along with more & more supplies for needlefelting,
new patterns from terrific primitive designers & such ~
I'm also in the midst of UN-decorating for Hallowe'en
and getting the shop ready for a
I love Christmastyme...
the sounds, sights & smells...I can't wait to start harvesting the fresh pine...
& did I tell you that we have real
growing in the tops of our trees???
do you know how we get it out of the tops of the trees?
we SHOOT it out with a .22 rifle!!!
(i'm a pretty darn good shot...
my great-great aunt, Elizabeth Couffer (from Pennsylvania)
was an award winning sharpshooter...
that was quite a title
back in the 1800's for a Lady, no?)
I love to drape the fresh pines on my cupboards
and the mistletoe in my old baskets around the house & shop...
oh boy...now I've got the itch....
tell me, when do you start to decorate?
or should I ask
when do you get the itch to start your Holiday decorating?
Enjoy this cold, almost-end-of-October day...
spend it cozy-ing up your humble little home...
light a pine-scented candle,
& create something wonderful with your Hands...
Blessed be, my sweet Friends,
