Now that our Christmas sales are all under way and things have slowed down a bit, its time to bake. I love all the fun homey things about this time of year. I only wish the season lasted longer. So The christmas music is on, we have baked, boxed, tagged and tied. Now the fun of delivering to all those special people that make our lives full.

Just a quick update and a Happy Thanksgiving to all.

We are busily preparing for the Monticello Christmas Show in Portland. It is a fabulous show and hugely attended. We not only enjoy being part of this show but we love to shop it as well. This is the best display of Christmas anywhere on the west coast. (at least where I've been) It is a Magical experience to visit and see the many talented venders who participate. If you haven't been , you need to go.
I am finishing up several projects and have lots more to go. Here are a few quick photos and off to sew I go...

Annual trip to the pumpkin patch

Every year we take a break on the third weekend of October to go to the farm and pick apples ,enjoy the sunshine, get pumpkins and just enjoy the beauty of Fall. Today was the day. We headed out to the same farm we have gone to for 15 year. As always they served fresh warm apple cobble and icecream. The tractor pulled us in the wagon all around the farm and we enjoyed one of the last beautiful warm days of fall. It was charming and delightful as always. What a pleasure family is and the simple things in life.

Loving this time of year

I cant get over how much I have looked forward to Fall this year. I'm not sure why. Maybe change of seasons , somehow represents change in life. The coziness of winter is very enticing this year. And as we ease into winter I am much enjoying Fall.

Feeling Like Fall

Its still beautiful out and the sun is shining but I am realizing I'm in the mood for Fall. I just keep thinking of all these fun Fall activities like baking, sewing when its pouring outside ,visits to the Farms, and decorating of course.
Today I gave the Barn at Glory days a Fall makeover. I am loving hydrangeas and sedum this year. Along with some lovely white pumpkins.
