It's Christmas Time.......

It's Christmas time in the country ! Soon it will be Christmas day ! And I am sure not ready for it !

These *Silver Bells* will be listed on TDIPT Mercantile tomorrow night. Both sets come with a Silver Bells *Music Sheet* tag. It is hard to believe another month has passed us by already !

Since I have gotten my offerings done for TDIPT, I can now concentrate on decorating my house, Lord willing.

So far this month we have just gotten a couple dustings of snow.. nothing major. And that is just fine by me !

Have a nice evening ya all !

I am off to find something to eat.. It looks like leftovers tonight.

Take a PEEK !

This little gentleman is loaded with goodies for Christmas and will be listed on ebay this evening after 9:30. Lots of handstitching went into the making of this gathering. The trim has been blanket stitched.

It took me forever to list this set on ebay today. Photobucket has altered their format again ! It would be so nice if photobucket and ebay would let well enough alone !

May you all have a Blessed and Bountiful Thanksgiving !

Veteran's Day ~ God Bless Our Veterans and All Enlisted Soldiers !

My Dad in World War II while in Paris, France.

He served over two years overseas in the Army from 1942 to 1945 during the war and was in five different campaigns. Normandy, Battle of the Bulge and Omaha Beach were a few of them. He was in England, France, Belgium, Germany and Africa, also during the war.

The Winters Family

........ Click photos to enlarge ....

This is what I have been diligently creating the last two and a half weeks.

Meet Wilona, the MOM, and Windy Lou and Wesley.

They are dressed in blue and off white wool. The Mom has an antique vintage glass colbalt blue hat pin on her hat. The little girl has vintage antique blue shoe type buttons on her jacket.

The only glue used was a bit for the body to adhere to the wooden bobbin and it is sewn on it , also. And a bit of glue for the noses of the little children. Lots and lots of hand stitching on this family ! Even the children have wired arms !

I thought this family was going to melt before I was able to get them totally finished !

Stay tuned to when they will be listed on ebay....

Have a super duper Wednesday ! The sun is shining and it is so pretty outside right now..but nasty weather is on the way here for the next few days ! Tis November !

P.S. A pretty sunset tonight .. shown below from my front door is a view of the dairy farm on the hill ...notice the lights on in the barn !

The Winters Family Snow Folk Set is scheduled to list tomorrow night. This was an all day affair.. finishing up this set, taking photos, putting them in the computer and photobucket and then listing it on ebay !
