Oh the Weather Outside is Delightful...........
Well it does look like Christmas here!! Snow is coming down and we are suppose to get a foot to a foot and half of snow by tomorrow morning! The wind is suppose to pick up and be blizzard like conditions, so I am going to snuggle in for the weekend and do some Christmas baking and cooking, watch Christmas movies and just about anything I want! (This will be my 1st snow storm alone, my son moved out a few months back.) So just me here but I am OK with that. My attached man lives 40 miles away and since he is a fire chief, I guess he feels he needs to protect his town. I respect that but it would be awfully fun to have him here to cozy up with:-) he would be handy for shoveling too!
I have been super busy in the store and people have been buying my decorated Christmas trees. If had set out to really sell them I am sure I wouldn't have sold any. It is amazing how many people like buying pre-decorated trees. I even sold my pink one! I couldn't resist, I shot the lady a price and she actually said she would take it! What a fun season this has been. Even today in the snow we are busy. I feel very blessed being able to continue having a business I love and I am thankful everyday.
Here is a picture of my latest shade. It is made out of pink vintage fabric with roses and a splash of pale yellow. I have it on a pink & yellow pottery lamp. I really did like the way it turned out. I have had several things I have been working on and they don't seem to be lasting long around here! I took these old punched reflectors and did some interesting ornaments out of them. Another collage too. I don't know what I am going to use all these vintage little watch dials for but I just think they are cute!
Does anyone remember Jiffy Pop Popcorn?? They had it at Target so I thought, Hey I remember this from when I was little! I will have to try it for a $1. Well let me tell you, It is not as much fun to make as it is to eat, they used to tell us that. It was a real pain to stand there swirling it around waiting for it to pop.
I think it was fun for us to watch but then Mom did the swirling, lol. We always
use to tell our mom, "It tastes better when you do it Mom"
I hope to be able to get around to visit everyone over the weekend, seems like ages since I have had time to visit. I hope everyone has been having a wonderful holiday season!!
