Hey...What's Up my Gnomies???

My dear friend loves Gnomes.  In fact, she convinced a bunch of us to dress up as Gnomes & ride on a float in our local Christmas parade this year.  SO MUCH FUN!!  AND...I have to admit...these little guys are growing on me!!

Hoping you and your Gnomies are enjoying this beautiful Holiday Season!!!

Happy Friday!!

THANKS & Tears

  For some reason I am feeling extra nostalgic this Thanksgiving season.  Why???  I have no idea!  Just a sweet look from one of my 14 year old daughters sends me into a little crying jig...or a stroll down memory lane talking about my Gramma this week....well lets just say puddles of tears.  Funny how this happens every so often.  Makes you want to hug your family old friends that you have not seen for a while and most of all, thank God for all the blessings in your life.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!

Lots of Love...Kristin

~~First Fall Chill ~~

Oooooh...first cold, Autumn weekend here on the Central Coast.  Well...I mean cold for the 50's most of the weekend and frost on the ground yesterday morning!  
I had a few tops of picket fences hanging around...made these primitive snowmen...LOVE them!!!  The bucket of the men...make me smile!!  What has made you smile this weekend???

Hoo knew that this owl would be my best seller this season???? 
 I have made & sold 10 of them in the last few weeks!!  YAY!!!   
 I had to share this pic of my son on Halloween!!  The best mask EVER!!!  He was so popular that he got twice as much candy trick or treating than my daughters!!  Too funny!!

Hope you are all staying cozy on this wonderfal Autumn day!!

Hoo Loves Ya????

I am addicted to making these owls!!!  LOVE the rustic primitive feel of them!!

The Wise Owl
The wise old owl
Sat in an Oak.
The more he saw,
The less he spoke.
The less he spoke,
The more he heard.
Why can't we be like
That wise old bird? 


Hope you have a beautiful day!!
