You see my mum brought us up to be that way, we always had people who needed help staying at our house or pretending to be Santa and sneaking into a family's house(who wasn't going to be able to do Xmas) and putting presents under the tree for when they got home...I just think if we could all do something anything big or small the world would such a better place..That's why I love this blog falafel for the soul..Check her out, she encourages people to leave little act of kindness for people to see..This on is great it was left on a train for people to see, it made me laugh for the first time today...I Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving..and remember it only takes something little to make someone day..
The clouds never left and it was very cold but we battled on...A big thank you to all the awesome crafters..Your handmade items are just beautiful!!!!!Here are some of the pics of the items that were for sale..As you can see we have some fantastic local talent....

Still feeling sick, but determined to carry on..Rushing around trying to finalize everything for the fashion craft fair we are having at the boutique on Sunday(and now they are saying rain..not happy!!) And tonight, my good friend Michelle and I are decorating the store for Christmas..It should be a blast as we always have fun together even if it is work....I will post pics of the fair and the store next week...

It's been so quiet today at the store, that I decided to do some e shopping over at etsy..Look at these great vintage items from santokivintage...I love the dress it's so simple but beautiful..And that bag is to die for the bigger the better if you ask me..

Just some pictures thrown in of my decorations..I'm sure my neighbors thought we were insane with a tree up the 1st week of November..The cake stands I made using old plates and candlestick holders..they turned out lovely..
Again the horrible fact that i hate having my photo taken but, my daughter and sister look beautiful...
And last but not least the winner of the window display competition was Taylor from Whitney high School..Congratulations Taylor!!!!

Things have been so crazy around here,We just finished a window display competition between two local high schools..Whitney High and Woodcreek high, the girls all had so much fun picking out all the outfits and even did the backside of the window boxes. I just wanted to thank them..They did a great job, don't you think so....The winning window will be decided on Saturday so I will let you all know the outcome.
Well my son is home tomorrow from Italy before he goes to Afghanistan so we are celebrating our Christmas this Saturday so i have been busy decorating the house..I will post pictures soon..Well have a great weekend I know I will..
