It's Time...

from my files- unknown
A gorgeous Holiday setting - antique Swedish bench and a boxwood and wheat wreath!
Now that my schedule has calmed down I am going to take a week off from the blog to...

Caroline Bauer
sort out my sewing room and get started on the 2010 range for My Store (and there are loads of new things, some you have asked for!) and do some tracking of supplies etc...
country living
Get our Christmas table arrangement organised. Yep, we decided to not do the outdoor Bar-b-Que like last year. this year we are doing the traditional baked dinner, which means I can dress the table a lot nicer. Also....

I will be working on some details for The Barn opening!!!
I painted the fence white which is along where the barn is and also got 2nd degree sunburn while doing it yesterday! I am SO sore and serves me right...no sunscreen. I didn't think I was out there that long =0l
min lilla veranda

...but most importantly, I will be taking some time for myself and time to spend with those dearest to me - my beautiful family in our loving home.
I would like to thank you all for supporting me and always encouraging me to do great things with my talents. It is because of you all that I achieved so much this year and I hope to do better things in 2010. I have met so many amazing people and made some good friends through this blog.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Have a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah or what ever you may be celebrating with your families...see you all in a week-ish xx

  7. In Dutch we would say : O sufferd! (meaning you were not being too clever) but you know that by now ;) T-shirt and a hat next time you're painting. So funny though, we're enjoying some lovely snow, which doesn't happen that often at this time of the year.
