Make a date and don't be late!

This show truly is a feel good event. It's so much fun to put it all together and the actual show just plain makes me giddy. What could be better?
Shelly and I spent the morning at the Hall decorating the front of the wonderful old log building. It's the best its ever been. The inside of the hall has this incredible warmth about it, makes you want to move in. It's not to late to include us in your weekend plans, or just tweak them and come join us? Friday evening you'll be welcomed with cookies, hot drinks and live fiddle and guitar music on stage by Josie and Ethan. They're going to cook up some fun tunes for us from 4-6pm. Admission$5 on Friday which entitles you to first dibs on all the treasures. Afterwards you can have some dinner with your friends offered by Kristi of Paprika's Catering. If Friday doesn't work, we'll be open all day Saturday from 9-4pm, admission $3. Grab a hot drink and a bite to eat and head on into the hall. We'll have vendors selling eclectic to country/primitive decor. Beautiful handcrafts, jewelry, knitted accessories, hand spun wool, handmade soap, lotions and body care, soy candles, wreaths and greenery, along with linens, quilts, collectibles, antiques and vintage Christmas. Every nook and cranny will be filled with delightful stuff. This is a very sweet show not to be missed.

Faye will be back with her beautiful wool mittens and socks

Heather will have her one-of-kind santas and snowmen along with lots of collectibles

Now Lu Lu, he's not hideous, I think he's cute.
Join Linda and her friends up at 2nd Saturdayz at Sand Pt. in Seattle 8-3pm. Another wonderful market.

These are a few of our favorite things

Thus begins the last few days when I burn the midnight oil. The house quiets down, the needs of everyone are met, and I can focus on the last bit of crafting, pricing, and gathering into piles all that I need to put on the show. The last space is filled, the to-do lists are long, each day is marked out. I love this part. When you're so close and you just keep checking things off the list like clockwork. Shelly and I are very excited about all of our vendors, and especially welcome all the new faces. It's going to be a good one, see you there!

Fuzzy trees!

Busy Getting Ready For The Show

This weekend we were very busy as a family getting ready for the show.
My husband and our two boys helped make a wonderful arbor, we cut a bunch of sticks,
twigs, greens and we made a few more signs.
It is so nice to have help.

Even our cat helped.

Eight Days Away!

When the weather is in the upper 60's, and the skies are blue it's darn difficult for a Northwesterner to be thinking about the holidays. Halloween yes, Thanksgiving yes, but the one with twinkly lights, sleigh bells ringing, cedar boughs and holly, glitter and santa hats, hmmm that one seems so far off. But those days are coming and then before you know it you've only got a week left. So come on out to our Girlfriends Holiday Market and we promise to help you get in the holiday spirit. ~Sharon
