Good Saturday afternoon all!...can you see the bottom edge of this towel I have hanging on a cupboard door?...it says, "Looking for Winter", and that about sums up this season so far for these here parts! Winter is my favorite season, I love winter with a passion!...love snow too!...and so far we have had neither! With Winter being my favorite season and all, I save most of my snowmen to decorate with after Christmas. I went around the house today and snapped a few pics to share. The adorable snowman you see hanging was made by Tammy of Rock River Stitches:Pinkeep made by me from a pattern by The Stitcherhood:
An olde crock with a sprig of pine sits with a big olde wooden bowl filled with yummy pinkeeps...some made by me and some by others:
Another wintry display...the snowman head made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow Folk Art is a favorite!
With Valentine's Day coming up, I've started to mix in a few hearts here and there...this is a lovely Mercantile Pantry Heart that I sell in my shoppe along with a Hog Scraper Candlestick placed on an olde checkerboard atop the Seven Snowballs table square also sold in my shoppe:
This is what my foyer table looks like at the moment:
Atop the folk art cabinet that hubs made:
Sweet Eliza K. Wilson made by Norma Schneeman and the kitty on her lap was made by Betty of Squarenails:
Antique lighting along with a reproduction candlestick:
This might be my favorite hooked mat made by Stephanie of Old Colony Primitives...it is sitting on my coffee table and I place whichever jar candle I'm burning right on its tummy:
Speaking of the coffee table, here is my bowl that I decorate for the seasons...the adorable snowgal was made by Jenn of Rabbit Hill Primitives, the wee snowmen were made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow Folk Art, the largest pinkeep/pillow was stitched by Pam of Primitive Basketcase, and the other two pinkeeps were stitched by yours truly from a Country Rustic Primitives pattern...the Large Rustic Chopping Bowl is an item offered in my shoppe:
Fireplace mantel with my new tin sconces...I offer the candlelight version of them in my shoppe...the wooden bottles were made by Don and Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm:
Make-do chair, candlestand, and candlestick also made by Don and Pat...the hanging hearts were made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow, the hanging flax comb by Art of Old Colony Primitives, the wee angel doll was made by Jackie of T.F.C. Folk Art, and darned if I can't recall who made my kitty pillow!...I've had it for several years:
This display is on the little dough box table that hubs made last year...the iron pedestal bowl is an item offered in my shoppe as well as the Sweet Surrender placemat:
Last but not least, beautiful wax fruit made by Misi of 1890 Gable House:
Speaking of fruit, I would like to begin a small collection of olde stone fruit but don't know the first thing about it...for those of you who are familiar with it, if you would kindly pass along tips like what to look for and whatnot, I would be greatly appreciative!...I'm planning on searching for it on ebay and etsy for starters.
That's all for now...thank you so much for visiting with me!
