Announcement & Christmas Displays!

Hello all my blogging friends!!! Hope you had a blessed Christmas and lots of time to spend with your family and friends!
First for my big announcement!!!!! I'm so excited about a new group I'm putting together, with the help of Robin from Bird in the hand Primitives, we are bringing together some of our favorite rug hookers, penny rug makers, cross stitchers, primitive doll makers and pattern designers! We will launch our new site on January 20Th.... so be ready! Each month we will have new listings with a theme for your viewing pleasure! Our first month offerings will be for Valentine's Day!
And .....When I went to see my mom I took some pictures of a couple of her Christmas displays. Wish I would have taken more time for other shots but you know how that goes! She has quite the touch with using her antique and prim pieces to create an eye pleasing picture!
I love this old chippy chair and the mohair bear was made by my sister! Her Christmas tree is a fraser fir.... my favorite! My dad picked these red berries!!! I need to find that bush next year real early so I can enjoy some of them in my home! They are so full! My favorite wall in the kitchen! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!!!

  6. Hi Teresa,
    Thanks so much for including me in this wonderful new group of artists you and Robin have put together. I'm joining and I hope sooner than later.

    Your mother's home is so warm...she does have the right touch with everything she does.

    I bought some of those berries this year at our local Perennial Farm...they had bunches of them for sale. WINTER BERRIES is what they called them.
    Some bunches sold for $25.00...the one's I bought were packed in smaller bunches for $15.00 - there were approx 6 sprigs! SO IF YOU CAN GET THEM FREE DO SO!


  7. Hi Teresa, Very exciting news, sounds like you have put together some very talented people, looking forward to the website opening. Love your moms displays, she has an eye for it. Favorite is the wall in the kitchen also. Take care, Vicky

  8. Hi Teresa - your mom has a beautiful home and love the winterberries! I need to find some of those around Tennessee. Looking forward to Jan 20th - I need some new stitching projects. Good luck in your new endeavor!


  9. Exciting news and your Moms home is primtastic and has great blues!
    Happy New Year!

  10. That is amazing news! I love Robin's designs and you + her is going to be an amazing combination. Can't wait! Love your mom's displays! (Does she hire out??) ;o) Those winterberries are gorgeous. Can't seem to find them in these parts - and to think your dad just "picked" them....Wow.... Hope your holidays were merry and bright - and the new year is filled with hope and joy....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
