 Had so much fun at two auctions recently, and found some items I think you'll really like.....A large oval mirror and a  small round  (rolling pin) foot stool that is really colorful.

The Old Kitchen cupboard is full of dishes again. 

 I think you'll love this colorful flower garden quilt, I sure do.  It's handquilted and they did a great job piecing it.


Neat little old red wagon, would look nice outside with some mums in it.


Have a lot of oil lamps, large and small.




This is Handel's Messiah, 2 large albums, about 10 records total....they are in perfect condition

I have a great collection of LP records, if you're a collector, you'll want to go through these!

It's official we'll be having a Christmas Open House at Bird's Nest Crafts & Gifts on Nov. 26 through Dec. 1...that whole week.... open 9-5 every day.  Can you help us spread the word?  Thanks!  Cindy Bontrager said she would bring some items and you all know the great work she does.  In fact her word/pictures are a great gift for the young family ...everyone loves them when they come in the shop, you can't go wrong :)  We'll have other local artists items there too, like handy towels, home-made soaps and baskets, the list goes on.  I'll have some smaller stone feeders too, which always sell fast.  People that love to feed the birds will like them, as they should last a lot longer outside than a normal wooden one.  So if you need gift ideas for anyone, I think you'll find it here!  Well, gotta get to work on all this....see you in November!

When my friend put in new porch railing and posts, I asked if I could have the old ones, so we dug them out of the trash and stored them, now finally, Mary's railing posts are becoming snowmen and santas, and I'm having fun creating them.  Each one is unique and  different, you'll have to come check them out.  The shop has a "fall room" now with pumpkins of all sizes and shapes, some made from old barn siding, that you can take apart and they store flat.  I'm also working on garlands for fall....just like the christmas ones, except with fall colors.  I'll have 6' and 9'.  I'll post pictures soon.  In this pictures you can see a corner of the potato bin that Cindy Bontrager painted and brought in to sell.  It's really cute.   You're all invited to come and me, I'll put the coffee on! :)
