My Talented Hubby ~

Peter has been helping me get ready for the open house Saturday,
and he has been as busy or even busier than I have been!
We decided to make some xmas trees out of tomoato cages, burlap and calico ~ but they still needed a little 'something' ~ so down to his workshop my little elf went...
and when he came back up, he has these!

beautifully rusty, perfectly patina'd ~ hand cut ornies for those trees!!
(I helped a little by drawing the patterns for them, but Pete did all the hard work!)

folky birds, spools, hearts ~ bells, little stars & bigger stars...
and one 'lone' house...which will have companions today.

and the kicker?
the rusty tin came from a piece of tin that was salvaged from this old farmhouse.
(my Dear Hubby knows what a true make-do is and like me, saves just about everything)
..like I said ~ perfect.

they remind me of Christmas cookies...but please don't take a bite of these...
we'll have home-baked treats on Saturday that you can sink your teeth into :)

Please remember, that the shop will be
CLOSED tomorrow (friday, november 30th) in preparation of the
Open House ~ we'll see you on Saturday morning when our shop doors open at 10:00 am!
Blessings from the Farm
