Fun things...

Well, the countdown is on....only 3 days until our open house begins! We're scrambling like Santas' elves and what a rush! We are trying to get everything finished up, cleaned up, and then rearranging the house to be able to get as much inventory and as many people in as we can! Whew.....lots to do, but we are enjoying the excitement that the open house always brings. We love seeing old and new customers and enjoy being with them, especially at this time of year! :)

Bob is busy trying his hand at a few new pieces.....the first one being these new Colonial Candle Cups! He made two, but fired them one at a time in two different colors. As soon as the first one came out of the kiln, I was so excited that I immediately yelled out "Make tons more!" :) We love how they got, and needless to say, he is working on more! :)

He also made a few other newbies....

Some soap trays (packaged with the most wonderful smelling soaps that we are also selling). They smell so good, I could just eat them! LOL!!!!

These are a great little gift set perfect for anyone on your shopping list....I'm going to be using these for some teacher's gifts, and some other lovely ladies. ;)

*Pumpkin Spice, Apple Crisp, and a very wonderful spearmint...mmmmmmmmmmmm

*Some trays with handles!

*Some mega mugs that hold 3 cups!!! That's a lot of coffee! ;)

In between all of the scrambling, we hiked out to a beautiful nearby tree farm to hunt for the Miller's Christmas Tree 2010! We have been enjoying this most awesome tree farm since our first child was born and we all love it there. Free hot chocolate, free cookies, and free pony rides for the kids....who wouldn't love it?! :)

Finally found it.....

Finally got it in the house! :)

Next post, some decorating pictures! Have a great day!
