Open House Photos ~


I took a lot (a lot!!!!) of snaps yesterday, 
I hope you enjoy this little visit to our Open House:


hello & welcome!!

~ the shop before the crowd ~







(is that blur Mrs. Claus shopping?










almost ready...







sweet friend Misi (1890 Gablehouse)
was so kind & generous to make and pass along
 these scented wax tarts for the first 35 customers who visited with us yesterday....
Thank You Misi!

 Doors Open!









Friends from Far & Near came to visit us again ~
some from VERY far away, 
...like the North Pole!


Santa resting a bit from his trip

 We are so blessed to have Santa & Mrs. Claus as best friends...
(a.k.a. Shari & Steve Kritikakos)
we ALL look forward to their visits, including our fur-friends here at the farm ~


feeding the reindeer? no ~ that's Pinocchio & Daisy!




my HANDSOME boy-friends


Daisy making raspberries for the camera ~ she sticks her tongue out quite often!


she's like a small child in the family photo...you know, where everyone is smiling & posing nicely
(and that one little brat has their tongue sticking out! LOL)

~ even Mrs. Claus gets some lovin'...



my BEAUTIFUL Friend Shari & Nocchi



it was a wonderful, magic-filled day.
filled with the sounds & fragrances of christmas to help us usher in 
another holiday season with family & friends....




and with humble gratitude to
ALL of our customers for your continued support & friendship...
Joan & Felicia for being always by my side...
Peter & Hannah for loving me.





We Wish You a Very Merry Christmas!!

* Blessed be * 
Lori

It was wonderful Lori! I treasure the goodies I picked up. I love the pics of Santa and the donkeys, despite Daisy sticking her tongue out!! You should have taken after pics cause I am sure the shelves were pretty empty, they were getting there when I left at noon! Rest up and enjoy the bit of white out there! Xo
