Christmas is almost here!!!

Say it isn't so!!!!!!!  
So hard to believe that the days are ticking by so quickly! 
 Just 8 more days! 
As I scurried around today with the Christmas music blaring, the rustling of wrapping paper covering the gifts{which I did get done today! YEAH} and finishing up my PHM offerings for tomorrow evening I had to stop and count my blessings! I have so much to be thankful for! 
I hope your days are filled with love, peace and joy! 
My decorations are very simple this year and I wanted to share a couple pictures!
Here is my little cupboard top mitten tree!  My mom made the mini mittens and made the star!

Our Christmas tree was a bit taller this year but I love the Fraser Furs and the tree farm where we cut them doesn't have many smaller ones to pick from!  Not many ornaments on there but sure does the trick for a simple look!  I wanted a new tree topper so I hooked up this star from mustard and black wools!

A simple little tree in my living room!

Here is a peek at my new offerings for the PHM update tomorrow evening at 9pm Est!  Hope you stop by to see all the offering the artists have to offer! It is such a great talented group!

Hartslog Days 2014

What a fun day with two of my sisters, a niece and my daughter-in-law on Saturday!  We jumped in the box truck at 4:15am and drove the entire time in rain!  It took us 1 hour 45 minutes to arrive and the rain was letting up as we unloaded the truck!  The clouds continued to break up and the sun peeked through leaving us with a very pleasant Fall day! 

This was the last of the outdoor shows for 2014!  
I'm now preparing for my home show which is October 31, November 1 & 2!!!  
 Please message for more information if you live close by! 

Armstrong Valley Winery Craft Show Pictures

I'm a little late here but when I have 2 shows back to back I'm a bit frazzled!  I really can't see how some vendors do this every weekend!  
It was a cold and damp day on Saturday and Sunday was dry but breezy!  A chill was in the air!

Craft Show and PHM update!

No rest for the weary in this household!  Summer is a flying by isn't it?!?!?  It's so hard to believe we are in the middle of August already!   
With the Lititz craft show behind me I  now concentrate on preparing for the next show which is Shippensburg Corn Festival here in Shippensburg, PA!  It will be held August 30, 2014, 8am to 4pm!  Let's pray the weather is as good to us as it was for the Lititz show!  Perfect!
I only captured a few pictures of my set up on Saturday since we were quite busy with shoppers and browsers most of the day!  By the time it slowed down a bit I was to tired to move! LOL... must be that age thing creeping up on me! 

PHM update is today too so be sure to stop by and see all the new primitive handmades the gals have created!   It is amazing how much talent we have in the group!

One of Robin Leuschen's doodles used to create this cutie!

 These new crock covers are going over very well! This is one of Robin's designs too!

 This is a large cabbage slaw cutter which I picked up in an antique store a while back!  I had no idea of the value until today!  It is made my Tucker & Dorsey MFG Co which has the embedded trademark on the back! 

Fun with an old Rake head!

Since it's school time I had to put a little school girl in the scene!

Hope you are enjoying the same beautiful weather we are having in PA today!!!  Sure feels like Fall which I'm really not ready for yet!!!  Still getting over that long cold Winter!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
