More shiny Christmas stuff coming to Sage Farm

True confession: I’ve never sold anything I’ve made. I hope that still isn’t true after the upcoming Dear Santa show at Sage Farm. I’ve got a small collection of Christmas wreaths about to make their public debut.

Have a look!

Blanket season starts with a Hudson’s Bay bang!

If you were at the thrift store power-shopping through the linens rack that’s usually jammed with ugly modern comforters and floral curtains in weird colors, flipping the hangers fast because you’ve never seen anything worth getting on that rack, but you just never know. . . and then you spied this:

Would you make a noise that sounded like a startled elephant? And simultaneously lunge for the hanger this thing was on, just in case the person standing 20 feet away completely mesmerized by the moving electric Santa dolls decided to grab it instead?

Well, wouldja? Click to find out what *I* did!


I’m making the season bright and gluey

Thank goodness this is a joint blog because Luray has been posting and posting while I have been glooping hot glue on lots of vintage stuff to make Christmas wreaths. I’ve got a baker’s dozen to send to Sage Farm next week for the December show.

Ready for the Big Reveal? Here’s wreath number one…

Gobble gobble!

Hey, it’s still Thanksgiving, isn’t it?

At Lurayville there is still a lot of turkey in the fridge, along with apple-cranberry pie and pumpkin pie, so it’s still the holiday for us even though I’m going back to work today in the new-fallen snow.

We’re leaving our Thanksgiving decorations up, too. Which is easy, because there are only two of them: that melty plastic popcorn turkey, and this melty plastic popcorn Pilgrim boy.

It’s beginning to look a lot like . . .

What a great display! Everything pops against that green door.

Yes, yes, I KNOW it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But at November’s Sage Farm show, there were a few corners that looked a lot like Christmas.

I snapped some photos of  red & green. Take a look!

What are you waiting for?
