Christmas Jolly's ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk~
how do you like the new 'look' to the blog?
I am always playing with it, I know..but I have been drawing so much lately, that I wanted it to reflect that ~ speaking of drawing, I am working on a new 2012 Calendar that 9hopefully) will be ready to ship by this weekend..
I know a lot of you have asked if there will be another coming, and the answer is yes!

here are a few
Little things around the farmhouse that make me smile...
...my antique Tom's Coconut Hut's Candy Jar filled with chocolate-delights :)
(well, it WAS filled...)

one of my antique French wire dress forms, wearing a Victorian weskit :)
(wish my waist was that small...where are those chocolates again?)

some festive sewies....

our Tannenbaum ~
decorated carefully by Miss Hannah & her beau, Skyler...
the farmhouse wears a simple dress of Christmas...
I tend to decorate with things I love, no matter what...I'll mix in vintage, retro, farmhouse ~
primitive, cottage, whimsical & contemporary together
~ if it pleases my heart & eye!!

I don't allow the passing-fancies or fads dictate my heart~
i guess I love it all!!!

blessings from the farm,

Lori

Love the new look on the blog Lori - so fun to see your wonderful drawings. And your decorations and treasures suit the farmhouse wonderfully. I, too, decorate and collect things that make my heart smile - and it pleases me well. (I am a wee bit jealous though - you said "one" of your antique dress forms?? Sigh....) Hannah and Skyler did great on the tree - do they hire out? ;o) Smiles & Tuesday Hugs ~ Robin (So bummed I missed out on your online show. Boo Hoo....)
