Hello Friends!

just chiming in here to say...
I am now the proud owner of a Mac!!!!
I won't have it ready to go until next week...
you see,
since we live so far out here in the country, we don't yet have highspeed internet ~
but we do have satellite TV and are awaiting the hook-up for our internet via that.
{{not only will I not know how to USE my new computer, but I can do it faster too! LOL}}
kinda like the old
"Drink more coffee ~ do stupid things faster and with more energy!!" mantra, no?
so THEN I will be able to chart my patterns and get the new ones out for you...
you all have been so kind & patient with me during this...I cannot thank you enough :)

in the evenings I get 'me' time to create,
and I have hundreds of antique cabinet card photos,
I keep them in boxes and wanted to put them to good use and came up with these:

yes, they are a little "BLING-y"
but I like the look of them on my tree
(one or two only, not all of them at once ~ but hey ~ that's just me, you could do a whole tree in them...a white feather tree would look pretty with them all on there)
and, the pic at the top of this post shows one finished 'friend' made from that hand dyed turkey red mohair... ( and a little blue friend setting next to him)
they'll be waiting for good homes here in the shop for saturday's open house.

Speaking of the open house,
the shop will be CLOSED black friday in preparation of the open house~
we will open promptly at 10:00 saturday morning :)
see you all soon, & have a Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!!!!!

blessings from the farm,

Hi Lori-
Your newest teddy creations are wonderful. The little red guy makes me swoon.
I'm also loving your new blog header.
Happy Turkey Day to you and your family-
Steiner Bears

I made some ornaments similar to this last year. Can't wait to get them out and decorate again in the little blue house!

Your sweet red bear has my heart strings tied in knots dear Lori...what a precious little bear he is! Congrats on the Mac....(I think, I hope....I've never used one, but my friend has one and loves it....) Your "blingy" ornies are adorable also - Christmas is the only time my blingy side really shows itself...then glitter and baubles look perfectly at home next to drab and muddy I think....Must be the magic of the season....Wishing you a joyous holiday - and a wonderful open house....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
