Terrific Tuesday

~WOW NOVEMBER 2nd already!! Goodness!!
This sign is almost finished and will have the saying "Believe in the season" on the top.

Gosh I still cannot figure out why my pics are flipping back to original after I rotate them and save!!???

This is a small standing block lamp that needs the hole drilled ontop yet and the candle light put in.  I think I am gonna go with all battery op lights so no plugs!!

One of 4 skates I am workin on in of cource that lovely green color again!! I basecoated a couple in a light soft blue too but am sure likin that green for snowmen!!

here is one of my snowmen that are made on top of an old rusty bed spring so they stand or can be a tree toppper also!!  Each one will hold a pot of pine sprigs and some berries and also a battery tea light.

Oh and here is my "mr boopie woopie boo" on the couch next too me under his blankie!! He is so funny, when I get up and head outside to do chores in the mornin he sneaks back into bed by daddy and his brother Bubba and hides under my pillow!  just his little nose sticks out! oh that's my baby!! 

I wanted to keep the packagin simple but still look like it could be a gift on my mixes and ended up doing this.  Just a simple paper sak, some scrapbook paper, gingham of cource!! LOL and a piece of homespun for a tie and a little tag to personallyze if ya want. 

My cobbler mixes which are so convient to use just add butter and fruit and your done! 

Here's my harvest time soup mix.  This is awesome!! filled with dried beans, peas, lentils, brown rice, egg noodles and seasonings, all you do is add meat and water and youre done!!  I like to put mine in a crock pot while we are sleeping then it is done in the mornin and it smells the whole house nice!! 

Oh and I had to make some toffee dipped pretzels for an order.  These are dipped in my homemade caramel then in milk chocolate then rolled in crushed toffee pieces!!  YUMMY~~

IF you want any pretzels the are $1.50 each and come with alot of different toppings: sprinlkes, crushed oreos, mini m&m's, crushed butterfinger bars, nuts, dried fruits n nuts, or german choc which has toasted coconut and pecans with the chocolate and caramel!! and another popular one is the crushed andes mint candies!
Just email me and I will fix ya right up and they make great gifts which I ship priority mail and dress the package up when it is for a gift and include a nice handmade gift tag!

It has been a busy tues!! but the sun is out and it really isnt too cold, it was this am though there was a layer of ice on the horses water trough so time to get out the water heater!!   I have been paintin and makin up my mixes gettin ready for our show this sat!!  St. Joseph MI this sat!!  So far this is what I have done today, this am I had to clean out all the water tanks and fill them for all the animals, mopped my kitchen floor, cleaned out all the nestin boxes in coop, gathered another 2 loads of kindling wood from the woods and then did some "me" paintin time!!  the best part of the day!   Tomorrow I am goin to the kitchen to work on cookies for the show and also maybe make some bread!!  and bread puddings~  I have fresh cranberries and want to do orange cranberry bread pudding with a creamy cinnamony nutmeg sauce!!  Will share more later!
Have a blessedly terrific tues yall!!
