My new header made me think of all the New Year's resolutions we will all be doing. Do you have your list typed up yet? I can't say that I'm much on resolutions, but I know I should start with increasing my church attendance. It has been so easy to get out of rhythm. I have enjoyed being able to spend more time at home and get some things more organized. I am in the wonderful and exciting stages of coming up with a fun new project! I need to do some more research, but I think it's gonna be a good one for my soul. Andy and Colt will launch the opening of their boot shop the first of the year. I think Andy has moved things around plenty of times now and he should have it all where he wants it. Wish them luck!

Sally joins us in welcoming you to our home. Doesn't she look great in her new suit!
New petticoat, boots and a bling belt. What else could a major manni ask for.
She is so tall I had to drag her out in the middle of the room for the photo shoot.
This old painting is my favorite. It's signed: Ruth, Dec 25, 46.
It's rough and rickety but wonderful.

Here are some items I have added to the Etsy shop. This metal tray is engraved with Merry Christmas, but the glare from the camera flash doesn't show it very well.

When I got home from work on Friday evening, Lacy and the girls had been here dragging out all my Christmas decorations. Supper was in the oven, so I didn't have any excuse other than to dig in and get started. I have ended up with my pickup, front and back seat, packed full of vintage Christmas decorations I found at our local resale shop. Since they say I'm their "best customer" (imagine that), they called me for an early preview, before their sale. I enjoyed the privilege ofhelping drag it out and going through all the boxes that have been stored up all year. What fun! I am so glad to add to my vintage collection. I will have lots of these items in my Etsy shop. Please keep checking back as I get them all added. It does take time you know. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy them until they sell.
An hour had probably gone by before I noticed this lamp shade. Lacy made it with remnants from my lace drawer and vintage decorations. It looks so great all lit up. I'll show you some of my new goodies and my decorated home in the days to come.
Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, but I am working on my "studio/junk room" to be more productive through the winter months. I will be selling on Etsy and Ebay. No more shows until spring. I'm just flat worn out! Soon.....Susan
