and a couple of Nandina Berries ~
after almost 9 years,
we have been blessed with berries on our Nandina bushes! yay!
(the chickens usually gobble them up, but since we fenced in the front of the farmhouse they're safe)
|I love that color red|
|hoping they'll last for the holidays ~ want to decorate with them!|
here are two different varieties of Ivy
...growing along the rock wall/fence near the 'privy' (outhouse) by the shop ~
|emerald & variegated ivy|
and below is one of our smaller holly bushes in the shop garden ~
|no berries yet ~ need to plant more me thinks!|
inside the farmhouse,
I've been playing in calico fabrics
and made up a litter of calico cats & kittens
for our Christmas Open House:
|they still need their faces & whiskers embroidered on, then a ribbon & rusty bell|
tied at their necks ~
the sawdust is flyin' out in the woodshop,
so of course I take full advantage to stuff my goods with it ~
here are some hearts stuffed & covered with sawdust,
~ waiting to become a large pin keep
|a bit messy,|
but I love using sawdust for stuffing ~
it lends such an old feel and smell to my finished goods!
Today is errand day ~
banking, PO and then taking Charlie shopping for groceries.
He is home, doing well but still needs me to help him ~
...so I do.
Thanks to all who have stopped by to 'like' my new business page on Facebook :
I'm going to try to start using that page more frequently for updates & such
as opposed to my personal 'lori brechlin' page ~ so if you want to friend me over at my new page, the link is above & also on my sidebar here on the blog ~
As you've noticed by now,
I've added beautiful dulcimer music to the blog...
do you love it or hate it?
be honest & let me know please...
(I personally love it, but I do value your opinions!)
I want to learn how to play the Mountain Dulcimer and have been obsessing a bit about it lately!
Maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas or have one of his elves make me one....
...Hmm....better get my list going to send to the workshop ~
Hoping your day is filled with beauty!
* Blessed be *
