Our holiday open house

I am back from our holiday open house this weekend.  Next year we have decided to do only friday and sat no sunday!! YIPPEE!! sunday was 10-3 and it was very very quiet.  Overall we did about 1/2 of what we did last year which is ok since we had a very good busy show last year and things are different this year as we all are aware of!  So here are some pics of our offerings.  My friend Laura does all the hypertufa leaves and stones and they all look amazing!! 

I did have about 15 altered books I got done and also some altered frames. 
Here is her waterfall and I just love this one!! 

We offer some grubby candles in all sizes and some very cool candle holders.

grubby votives that smell amazing!

My mom and brother and I made up some fresh pine centerpieces with and without candles.

And my friend Bonnie had a few antiquey pieces like this old chair.

homemade rugs

all natural soaps and lotions

some fixins and essential oils

more of my signs

lots of candles, pip berries and refill bulbs

I have to say as much fun as it is I am so so SO so glad to be back home with my guys!!  It was great today I packed up all the fall decorations around, started  decorating outside for xmas.  I put some pine branches around the farmstand, filled some window boxes with pines, cones and some red ornaments and made a couple of pine swags to hang around.  It really was almost 50 outside today and a perfect day for it now all i have yet is to put lights around and then can sit back and enjoy the white shimmering lights.   As much as I love colored c9 lights I absolutely love all white!!  I have lots of ideas of some new things I would like to make next year for our show and am for NOTHING doing a show the weekend before ours!!  LOL i say that now!! 
So this week is gonna be a bit crazy!!!  Thursday I am at Allegan market in the am with Dave from Young Earth Farm, South Haven in the afternoon and then off to Douglas to Everyday People Cafe to do their evening open house of artists!! Friday is Bronson Market then Saturday is Saugatuck Green Market I am in and then Sunday is the artists show at Saugatuck Brewery!!  So BUSY week ahead of me so it was nice to slack around a bit today and not do alot!!  even though I have to do double time tomorrow and wed!!
