Farm Queen Crown

Here is one of my crowns in a shop called "Enchanted Farm," which is south of Spokane, Wa.
My mommy has been here to visit lately, so we have been watching a bunch of Christmas movies. I have not been taking many pics of blogging my blog is a bit boring right now. But I will be back at it soon.
My studio is overflowing with goods I have found around town in the various thrift shops. My problem is that I bring them home, clean them up and put them into place, then I think of taking a pic...a little late, I say. Not that I can't shoot them afterwards, but it is not the same when the goodies are in amoungst other "stuff." Hard to see what is new and what I already had. I am so full in my studio...hope I will be able to move into a larger space sometime in the I call it.
Thanks for stopping by...please do come back.

Thanksgiving Blessings

This is the dinner table before we ate at it. I usually have Christmas brought into the house before Thanksgiving ever gets here. This year was not different with evergreens placed here and there along with some of my silver service. Candles are lite, we are ready to fill our plates then sit and dine. It was a lovely meal and time spent with my children. We were also blessed to have both Tim and my mom's here this year.
Blessings to all.

Grandma Feeds the Chickens

This is my great grandmother, Susanna Tennessee Reeves, from Arkansas. She died before I was born, so I was not privileged enough to meet her.
I love this photo of her feedin' her chickens. I do dream of the day when I can have a place to have my own I can be just like her.
I pray for my little homestead on the outskirts of town, everyday. Our current home is inside of the city limits and "chickens" are not allowed. So if I can get a place out of town a bit, then I can have my own passel of "girls."

Festive Red & Green

This end cap is at your local Michael's Craft least it was at mine. I thought it looked rather Dr. Suess like. It seems these two colors are from his Christmas movie. The big day is less than 7 weeks away...yikes I better get started on my decorating.
