I hope that you all had a blessed Christmas with family and friends.
Ours was very nice...
and today it is COLD and WET....
a little ice but some much needed rain has finally come.
Now its onto thinking of Spring and making out the show schedule for this year.
Not doing as many this year and sticking closer to home.
Lee's back just will not take the long drives and it has just
got to expensive to travel far.
The shop is OPEN and Christmas items
are on sale.
Have a Blessed Day and if you are in the midst of the
Blizzard of 1012....
Please be careful and send me some snow.

Good evening friends..
My wonderful husband..aka Mr Millstone
asked me what I wanted for Christmas...
"a RED front door" was my response...
I LOVE IT!!
Thank you honey!
In one dining room the setting is very simple
small red long johns and simple fruit on the table.
The foyer tree..
The den tree...
love big thick burlap
and this is the tree in the dark...
and in the second dining room...
a live tree on the table with dried fruit.
and one of Eli's toys on the table.
Simple and no fuss.
Have a great day tomorrow...
Make It The Best It Can Be.

NOW this is what I'm talkin' about!!
SNOW and COLD.
The calendar says it's December...
but the temps say it's mid spring???
None the less it does not make me want to run and
put up my tree nor does it make me want to go
I am being a Scrooge this year...I have
Christmas items up in my home.
Well...if ya count the tree from the show that is stuck in the basement
then I have a silly green plastic tree from Hobby Lobby up...in the
home shop with no lights or decorations on it.
I feel like Charlie Brown...
Doesn't anyone know the meaning of Christmas...
Hopefully I will be able to pull out of it...
get it together and celebrate the season!!!
Blessings from the "Grinch"

It was bittersweet...setting up for the final show
of the year...
not seeing my "show family" until after
all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season is over...
and the ringing in of the New Year.
Lots of hugging going on Saturday afternoon.
Here is a small sampling of Millstone's Booth...
So now it's onto putting up the ONE tree at home...
Lee is down with his back and he has been hurting
pretty bad. He has tried EVERYTHING to ease the pain...
don't know where this will lead us.
Taking some time off and getting my house and home shop back
in order....maybe this time off will help his back.
Our next show will be in Feb...
WINTER IN THE VALLEY
More to follow.
Have a blessed night.

for being the bestest "sister wife" ever...lol

shop last week decorating.

So...I get home from the shop today and this is what I found..
I thought someone had sent a gift...
come to find out Mr Millstone had been at it again.
This is HIS Santa...hand drawn out and 100% hand stitched.
He made this using an old feedsack...
I have been with him for 14 years and he NEVER ceases to

Don't you remember when you were little the excitement there was in going shopping the day after Thanksgiving...today we call this Black Friday...but there
WAS a day when it was just a fun family shopping day.....
waiting patiently to see the new toys...making your Santa list
and at the end of the day there was always hot chocolate with
peppermint...my Mother was the Queen of hot chocolate,
shopping and decorating...guess I got it honestly.

and I definitely welcome the new color of Millstone...
I am personally not a big fan of all white on white,
I love chocolate and red together.
I think that color makes things "pop"
more than just white...
I left this wall white for 2 reasons
1. to add depth to this little room
2. are you kidding...take down all of that
stuff??? Those boxes are screwed to the wall.
Fall gathering on the table...
love my garlic!!
Overview of front room with new beams and lights.
And I did not forget...Knoxville set up of
"Cabin In The Woods" love their primitives.
I bought the MOST AWESOME box from Barbara...
yeah I know I have a things for boxes and tables...
bought 2 on Friday...another story.
More of their great goodes for sale.
Still waiting patiently for the rain to come...
yeh it was SUPPOSE to start this afternoon...
maybe it is just running a bit late. We still need it so badly.
Hope that you all have a
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY...and enjoy
the day off...
from our home to yours...
