"The Show Goes On"

These are some of the homespun
Christmas stockings you'll find at the
Christmas Open House at Bird's Nest all this week yet.  We're having a bake sale too, so come on out and enjoy some shopping and refreshments.  We'd love to see you!

Hello!  The Christmas open house is in full swing, and the bake sale makes the house smell so good.  We have refreshments, hot apple/cranberry drink, stone birdhouses, vintage type aprons, handie towels, pillows, snowmen, beautiful handmade baskets, homemade goats milk soaps, Christmas tree ornaments, some of them made from spoons!  What fun, come on out and chat awhile......

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......

The Christmas Open House is creeping up faster than I I going to be ready?  My sister and my friend came on two different days and helped me finish some handmade items; what a boost!  Today I was working alone, and didn't seem to get anything done.  Galen helped me clean house and move furniture around, and I have three vendors coming tomorrow with their things to sell, so I need to put up tables for them yet tonight.  They make handy towels, scrubbies, home-made soap (that my daughter just loves) and handmade baskets.  So if you need any christmas gifts, I'm sure you can find a unique and "good smelling" one here Nov. 25-Dec. 3, 2011, closed on Sunday.  There will be a bake sale too, tonight I made the first batch of peanut brittle (which my brother-in-laws all beg me to make every year....they say it's the best ever.  I guess you'll have to come taste it and see :)

Large Wooden Geese

You won't believe what showed up at Bird's Nest Crafts yesterday...a flock of large wooden geese.  They are really nice, and make for great decorating in the house, or outside.  They'll be here for the Christmas Open House Nov. 25 - Dec. 3, 2011,

Monday, Monday

Shopping on a Monday morning, getting supplies, and browsing for that unique antique that someone NEEDS!  It's all in the "hunt", isn't it??  I'm having fun getting ready for the Christmas Open House coming up the day after thanksgiving through that next week.  I'm trying to create gifts that people will enjoy giving away.  This pillow was one of the latest..."Cherish yesterday, Dream about tomorrow, Live today".
