Whew...that is all I can say about the past several weeks! Life has been a whirlwind lately filled with great things and a few not so great but in the end, I find that I always have so much to be grateful for and so much to celebrate!

First, I was accepted to join a very talented group of etsy artisans known as the Old Farmhouse Gathering. I was so happy when I got the email letting me know that I was now part of this talented group! The artisans created vintage, shabby chic, country, and primitive items just to name a few! To find the wonderful offerings from this talented group please type-- ofg team-- into the search bar --titles & tags,descriptions!

Right now, our group's Old Farmhouse Gathering Holiday Celebration is currently underway! When you type ofghc into the search bar, you will be treated to an array of seasonal wonders that can be used for gift giving or winter/holiday decor! You will not be disappointed!

Here are two of the items I have listed in the Old Farmhouse Gathering Holiday Celebration!

We will also have a wonderful gift basket filled with goodies made by the Old Farmhouse Gathering members! Details will follow soon....but just in case here is the link for our blog:
So now on to more news, the not so good news! lol My youngest daughter and son-in-law were here from Italy where they are stationed! We were having such a great visit and had lots of plans for outings, when my oldest fell down the stairs and broker her leg! She is doing much better now and I appreciate all the well wishes I received for her speedy recovery! Through it all, we did have a great visit and Tiffany and Josh are now back home in Italy!
Since life should be filled with celebrations, I am going to celebrate my love of crafting and giving by having a giveaway! In order to win some of my favorite Holiday Ornies, sign up to follow my blog, or leave a comment and you will be entered! Winner will be announced on November 10th when I get back from Tennessee...that is another thing to celebrate!!
