it got cold last night!
after 2 days of mild temps we seem to be back into almost-winter...
a sparkly, heavy frost this morning in the big field ~
so pretty to wake up to!
It will be another busy day for us ~
the final preparations will be made for our Open House tomorrow.
Fresh greens need to be cut, and last-minute baking done!
please stop by our little Farm Shop tomorrrow,
we'll be open from 10:00 - 4:00
and would love to see you!
|isn't he a handsome St. Nick?|
for those who aren't on Instagram or Facebook,
I recently posted some photos of the new candle the I received from
Gable House Goodes/Misi Axel
Misi offers candles through her shop via Big Cartel:
and also holds a club for candle lovers...
this is her
Williamsburg Wassail candle & fixings ~
and a few photos of our yet-undecorated tree
... shown here in the Keeping Room of our farmhouse:
|the scent of Christmas.....|
I'll be decorating a little more after tomorrow, and will share some pics of the farmhouse & shop in their Holiday finery for you to see
~ if you're so inclined ;)
I also posted about the wonderful finishing techniques found in the
Fun With Wool book by Kathy Clark/Briarwood Folk Art
here are a couple of wool-wrapped-finished mats I did
using one of Kathy's techniques ~
what a beautiful,
neat & tidy edge this technique lends!
and it is easy as pie ~
Well I am heading to the kitchen for another cup of tea and a scone...
many miles to go before I sleep tonight!
wishing you all a cozy & creative day!
Blessings from the Farm ~
