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 arrangement...my purchase while I was part of their wonderful home show last weekend!

And, FINALLY!! SHOP NEWS!!!
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!
