CANDLES IN THE WINDOWS..

The candles in the windows of our olde farmhouse have been shining brightly for over 30 years...that is when I first encountered them in the windows of homes in Lancaster County.  I HAD to have them too.  All 16 windows in our home have candlelight shining - and we are lucky enough to have 24" deep window sills for which to place them, and an electric outlet at each window (except in the bathrooms where Tony had to get a bit creative)!  They shine in the windows at the store too!

My dear friend Susan has posted on her blog a bit of history about candles in the windows back in colonial days....where and why this custom started....I like her version (being Irish and all that) !!    Visit her blog  at  http://thedutchrose.blogspot.com/

Before Christmas sales are going on at The Cinnamon Stick right now....(we do not do after Christmas sales)...we know you need these goodies now!!

Valentine decorations and workshops coming in January...we like to spread lots of LOVE !!

WOOL FEATHER TREE WORKSHOP...

Our Sleigh Ride Event was great in spite of some crappy rain on Saturday - lots of people braved the elements and came shopping.  Time is running out to get everything done and I am on super charge to finish up my own shopping, cleaning and decorating.  There are only 11 shopping days left at The Cinnamon Stick - see you soon!!!
This season has been lots of fun sharing it with a whole bunch of new customers (who have just discovered us)...we really appreciate their kind remarks and of course their business!  Our olde customers, I am pretty sure, know how we feel about them..but just in case they need a reminder...you are very much appreciated and we are grateful for your loyalty - you are what keeps us going and going and going!

Yesterday was the last workshop of the year and was a "Wool Feather Tree Workshop" given by Joanne McIllmurray.  Joanne has been giving this workshop for 6 years and learned how by taking a class in Vermont - the instructor gave her permission to give classes and Joanne revised the instructions to make it simple and easy for anyone to do.  They will resume next November if you are interested in making one... !!!  Here are some pictures of the "fun" these gals had.









Have a happy day.....Judy

THANKSGIVING WISHES..

Tony and I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope you get to spend it with family and friends.
We will celebrate at our son's home where "everyone" will gather and break bread together.  It will be "hectic".....with 10 grands running around - a boyfriend and a girlfriend (oh la la) will come later to celebrate (the grandchildren are growing up) !  In laws, outlaws - everyone is welcome.  Grateful for all the work Wendy puts into having all of us.

I am so thankful for all the blessings that have been bestowed on me and my family.  To be able to go to work where I get to play, socialize, and even make some $$$, is so special.  That I have friends that are loyal and honest...that don't believe the "stuff" that some jealousy puts out there.  Customers who are quick to compliment and return often.

Family that is close and enjoys being together.  Children who love us and include us in their daily lives.  Grandchildren who are happy and good.  For the blessings God has given us, I am humbled and grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone - eat lots of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie....Diet on Friday!! (or better yet - just make it a New Year's Resolution...)!!    Blessings, Judy
