Our Last Show Before Christmas

We will be in Oldsmar at Gull Aire for our last show before Christmas.  I still have lots of Christmas cards and stocking stuffer type gifts.  Jim has plenty of stained glass for all seasons and lots of larger panels.  If you are local, come out and see us.  It is also small business Saturday so come support local craft vendors.

Happy Thanksgiving

We are planning to have a quiet Thanksgiving this year.  We may have our friends over for dinner if they don't go to their daughter's house.  We will make a turkey and all the sides even if it is just the two of us.  We freeze anything left over and make turkey soup from the bones.

Happy Birthday Dad

My dad would have loved to get this card for either his birthday or Thanksgiving.  Do you get it?  It is a pumpkin pie.  My mom made the best pies, homemade even the crust.  Pumpkin was not  my favorite and I am not sure if I can remember what my dad's favorite was.  He liked all kinds but I think apple may have been his favorite.  What was my favorite?  Well, I have a few.  Coconut cream and cherry cream are at the top of the list.  DH makes homemade pies now but he doesn't like cream pies so no more of them for me.  He makes a peach/blueberry pie that I like. 

How about you what is your favorite pie?

Thanksgiving Pilgrims

It is hard to think about the fact that it is almost Thanksgiving.  Where has this year gone?  Aren't these pilgrims cute?  They are a part of an old, long retired, Stampin Up set called Turkey Talk.  I borrow it every few years from a friend of mine.  She made some of these cards with me too.

Rest in Peace

I got word today that my mom's cousin died and her memorial is today.  For those of you who are into genealogy she was my first cousin, once removed.  I am thinking of her family today.  I will not be able to attend the service since I live so far away. Two of my brothers will attend to represent all of us.

Busy Weekend

We have two shows this weekend.  On Saturday the 14th, we will be at St Timothy's in Lutz.  Sunday will be Christmas Under the Oaks in Coachman Park, Clearwater.  I think we are going to be very tired after putting up and taking down all the displays and a tent.

I really like the layout of this card which I CASEd from one I saw on Pinterest.  It has a very Southwest look to it especially in the colors.

Congrats on Your New Home

Our neighbor's son just got married in the past few months.  He and his bride have now bought a house.  They are planners and very organized so I am sure apartment living was not for them.

Antique Glass

The title of this post is misleading since this is not really an antique piece at all.  So why did I title the post antique glass.  Doesn't this piece look like it should be an antique?

I know I have been posting when and where our next show will be.  There is not one listed this week because we do not have a show this weekend.  We have two coming up next weekend so we are taking a catch up weekend.

Kick up Your Heels

This card could be used for many occasions.  I just got a die to cut this boot so I have been making quite a few boot cards while I have the die out.  I saw the idea to use burlap and twine for a lasso so I thought I would give it a try.
