(I can't imagine living before electricity - running water - and a thermostat)!!
The outside is not fully decorated as the wind is pretty strong here and a Nor'easter is suppose to come Wednesday..(of course - open house day)..haven't heard much about that lately and hopefully it is not going to happen. We have lots of fresh pine as friends trees (and 3 of our large pines) fell during Hurricane Sandy...see how...I keep looking for the "JOY" !!
We will have our first Christmas Keep Calm & Create this Thursday - I have lots to do to prepare for that yet...yikes! One of the kits are the Christmas doves that were inspired by Jill Peterson's Christmas book 'TIS THE SEASON last year. I made some for sale and displayed them on our snowy branch tree done up all in white. (pics are not that great but you get the idea)...Fun project! Great to put on your tree, window panes (like Jimmy Cramer did), gift tags and they also make a nice teacher-friend-neighbor gift in a set of 3 !!! Come to our Thursday workshop and make lots of gifts!
