...tis (almost) the season ~

after devouring my recent "A Primitive Place" and "A Simple Life" magazines,
I am so ready to decorate for the upcoming Holiday/Winter season,...
I definitely will not be going overboard~
but instead keep it extremely primitive & simple.

a couple of real twig trees from our property will serve as a backdrop for more primitive decor such as dried orange-slices, cranberry & popcorn swags & simple ornies made from cloth.
I've started to get into the mood just a bit, as I know once I come home from the
Simple Goods show this weekend, I'll want to completely decorate!
below is a sweet little tobacco stick and barbed-wire tree that I got from
Barb & Giles (NC Cabin in the Woods) Pyatt
a couple of years ago ~
on it are simple crow ornaments from friends and a few ball & wire candle holders:

here's a little hooked mat I did the other day,
of some simple holly leaves & berries...
below is a line-up of some of the finished dolls
I'll be offering at our upcoming shows:

and here is another primitive painting of a Belsnickel,
that will be heading out to a new home soon~

the best part of the Holidays is the excitement we all feel as it approaches...
the hustle-bustle and hectic-ness all but fades away
on a cozy Christmas morn spent with family.

hot chocolate
fesh greens
wood smoke
old memories
dear friends
red woolens
heavy quilts
tattered dolls
Remember where your heart is,
and your holiday home will reflect it!!
I want to wish one of my bestest galpal's ~ Robin ~ a very Happy 50th Birthday today~
go on over and wish her one too!!

{{Love you! ~ we'll see you this evening for Filet Mignon!!}}

Blessings from the Farm,

Hi Lori....you and Robin have talked so excitedly about your trip to Simple Goods. I had thought maybe that I would skip this year but gee, I am only an hour away and I should be there!
I think I will recognize you from your photo, so if I see you I will be sure and say hello.
have a safe trip.
