Change of plans...

Well, as most of you all know, I close the shop from Christmas eve thru New Years day to take a bit of a break & enjoy time with family & well as a nice road trip somewhere! BUT due to a few personal reasons , travel was put on the back burner. Soooo, the shop has already reopened for the "new" year!
I am back to regular shop hours ~
Wednesday thru Saturday 10am-6pm

Now, I LOVE winter ~ & am still hoping for a good snow..I have 2 great sledding hills I itch to play on every year ~ yes, still a kid at heart! LoL..Anywho, that said, I have not put away all the winter goodes just yet...there's just a few snowmen left, though!

Christmas at the Cabin & NEW shop goodes!

Well, I normally spend ALL of my energy decorating the shop & forget about the house...And, while I did bust my butt to get the shop all festive for the holiday season, I managed to have a bit of spirit left to do a little in the house too...LITTLE being the operative word, but "little" is better than NONE! LoL I just wanted a simple look this year...
So, starting at the front door, come on in...
I decided I wanted a REAL tree for the first time ever (well, since I was a little girl)...I LOVE it! And so far, the cats have been better with it than an artificial!?!
Just simple with lights & a few glass bulbs....
Next, is the mantle...again simple...And, of course, the letters look MUCH better than in the pic ~ they're much more dark & distressed...
The santa & the pillow set, both made by me, sit atop an old 1800's quilt & chippy old chair...
The angel (also made by me), and the star candle holder (Pa amish made), sit on a cupboard at the end of the hallway....
And, my dear friends from Bloemenbinder's made this wonderful purchase while I was part of their wonderful home show last weekend!

While the year is winding up & those are finishing up holiday shopping, I have added a few more goodes for those last minute shoppers! I've added lots of new sweet winter/snowman notepads ~ great stocking stuffers, coworker gifts, neighbors, etc....AND those little red & white pillows I made from the old quilt? Well, I FINALLY got the big ones done! So they're heading out to the shop in the morning! Along with a few more candles (wynter scents too!)!

AND, weather-permitting (tho I am REALLY hoping for this snow), Saturday will be "Sample Saturday"...There will be LOTS of samples of the food goodes for sale in the shop, and I will also have some pumpkin bread mini loaves for sale & hopefully a few more baked goods...again, if weather permits...if not, I will do Sample Day next week!
