One show down.....10 to go!

Last week I had my first show of the fall season.  It was a great time!  My sales were good, especially since it is so early in the season.  This week I have another show.  Holly Days will be on September 25, 26 at the First Plymouth Congregational Church, corner of University and Hampden, Englewood, CO. (Email me if you need directions)

So, I am busily trying to replenish Christmas stock, and add some additional items.  Here are a few of the things I have been working on:
I bought this sled at a garage sale.  Simply added pip berries, bow and bells.

 I got these little tart pans while on our trip.  They were new.  I drilled a hole in the top and strung bakers twine, painted the snowmen faces and glued on a little bow.
More suitcases:  These are from our trip.  They are so much fun to do!  These were in tough shape so I actually had to paint the exteriors.  I sprayed with sealer and topped it off with glitter blast.

I also wanted to add a copy of my fall schedule.  If you plan to attend any of the shows, email me and I will send directions.  A couple of the shows have admissions and I have coupons for $1 off as well.
Well, my peeps, I'm off to do laundry and dishes so I had better get in gear!  Have a great week!

Fall is here.....

It has been nearly a month since I last posted.....but I haven't just been sitting around on my tushie.  This is the season for harvesting, and I have been hard at work.  Here is some of my handiwork.

So a recap is:  applesauce, baking apples, peaches, pickled beets, dill slices, sweet relish, dill relish, pickled jalapenos,candied jalapenos, salsa, pineapple chunks, dilly beans.  I also froze cabbage and freezer slaw.  I love doing this but, whew!, I'm pooped!  I also made a dozen of my canned snowmen, and a couple of these sleds:
 And a few more ornie wreaths!
And it is already show time!  My first show is Friday, Saturday of this week.  Come see me!  I will be at the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church and School.  Admission is free and there are always fun things to sample, buy, and admire.
