Little green wagon

Best. Birthday. Present. Ever.
My mom saw this on someone's porch and asked if she could buy it. They said yes. Now it is mine (thanks Mom). The perfect shade of green with just the right amount of rust and patina.

Happy Holidays!

First snowfall of the year- slowly melting (we didn't even have to shovel!). We may just have a brown Christmas after all.

Just for fun

This blog post really has no theme other than it is almost Christmas and I have a new toy to play with ( a new camera lens). I wasn't happy with the indoor/low light picture taking ability of the stock lens that came on my dslr. The new lens does the trick. All of these shots were taken inside on a cloudy day- something the other lens would have struggled with.

I went through a sewing phase a few years ago and made these stockings.

Oh matter how much we brush him or trim his hair...he always looks unkempt.

And, just a few soap shots I took for my mom's shop PigeonRiverSoaps. Isn't she all sassy getting her spring/Valentine's items made ahead of time!

That's all folks- thanks for stopping by!

Holiday spirit

Sorry I've been a bit absent lately- this time of year is always so busy. My show last weekend went well, my shop is re-stocked and I am *almost* caught up on custom orders/shipping. I am offering free shipping in my shop until the 15th. Use coupon code HOLIDAYSHIP to get the deal.

To help get in the Christmas spirit this year, I participated in the lovely package exchange over at oh, hello friend. My gifts are all wrapped and ready to be shipped- I even included a little something special from Wisconsin :) I kept my packages pretty simple with small pops of color using washi tape, bakers twine and vintage buttons (an idea I borrowed from pigeon river soaps- thanks mom!).

Lastly, I can't believe we don't have any SNOW yet! And trust me, I am not complaining. This year we decorated our porch with "free finds"- birch and dog wood branches/ sticks and grapevines, in an effort to save some moolah for an upcoming trip this spring.
