on my worktable ~

they're standing like little soldiers...
all lined up and waiting for their decorations...
these are some of my spiced pillar candles that will be available at the open house ~

and here are a few familar faces on canvas ~

I'm working everyday now, creating for the Holidays...
these candles smell like eggnog and nutmeg!

and there are more canvases primed and ready for my paintbrush...
I'll be capturing simple scenes from my memory and some from my imagination to place on them...

I would like to thank you for the well-wishes for yesterday ~
it was a long, stressful day for everyone, but we have great faith and it seems as though all will be well in the outcome..of course, we have to wait another 2 weeks for any conclusion, as our legal team goes through briefing and then arguments...but we are happy to have this past us now and we can begin to heal ~

it's a beautiful, rainy day here on the farm...
I have the woodstove going and will make some chicken & dumplings for supper, along with corn bread and baked apples....
hoping you all have a simply wonderful day too :)

blessings from the farm,

I can smell the baked apples already. Too funny though, my daughter has put in requests for special meals before she leaves for the Navy in January, one of her quests was my baked apples with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins! Glad to here the proceedings went well! Will be looking forward to a good outcome in the near future.

Loving those Santa portraits Miss Lori....Glad to hear things went well yesterday....I hesitated commenting on yesterday's post as I am much to close to the "system" to believe right always prevails....but I was thinking of you, hoping, and I do believe in miracles....Wishing you the very best outcome-wise....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
