Holiday Open House....

It truly has been a wonderful day.... full of blessings... {it started out, a bit rocky... someone always seems to want to steal your joy... but... I smiled...and handed it over to God....it's funny... Joy Stealer's, always try and cloak themselves, in anonymity... but, God always has a way of shining the spotlight right on them....painful to learn... but huge blessings, for the future....} That being said.... It was great seeing so many followers, from the Blog.... I sent folks to Fern Hill, in South Amana, to take in their Open House, today... and reminded everyone about Sisters'Garden's Open House, next weekend! A darling Mother and Daughter, started the day off, wonderful.... They truly made my day... and I told them so... Sweet Brandon was in, {House Things} he scoured the Little Shop, and winced, when I shared all the Pet Mouse Stories....I usually have one little mouse tamed, by the end of the season... Can't help it.... Lynn and Lea were a sight for sore eyes... Peg and I both agreed... they are the nicest couple... Pals, Gail H., Allyson and Dale.... popped in...Jeff and Nichole... they are Sweet Hearts... I really enjoyed the visit from the folks from Fry Town... We share a common love, of Vintage Christmas.... Everyone is excited to stop back, in December, for the Primitive Open House... During the wonderful Prelude to Christmas, in the Amana Colonies... {a 'Must See' the first weekend in December...many new shops, and great, established ones... it's always so beautiful... in all of the Villages...} I popped over, this evening, to a dear friend's house...{a very good listener} he had some great stuff, perfect for the Primitive Open House... I'm so glad he called me...and truly appreciate his friendship...yep.... another Angel... The news I got this morning, could have easily taken me down...I trust my friends...and when they hurt me, well, I guess I'm naive...I never see it coming... But... I'd rather be shocked, when hurt, than not trust people... this person, is in my prayers...and... the Parade of Angels that stepped through the door, today...well... dare I say... They were Heaven Sent.... I am so thankful.... for everything.... Everything.... I look forward to tomorrow... Peg and I are soaking up, all the Christmas Cheer.... What a Wonderful Life... {the batteries died on the camera... I'll have images, tomorrow...or, better yet..stop in...!} Barb C. Thanks, Sweet Angel, Amy N., for the wonderful jolt of Caffeine, last night! You always seem to come to the Rescue...Bless You!!!! And, Jan,{ Summer Sundays}... Thanks, for visiting the blog...and all of your kind wishes, and comments... You, too, are an Angel.... When things slow down... I'll be visiting all of you.... My Love to You... Barb C.

Hi sweet Barb

I hate that I missed coming to your shop but I will mark the calendar for December 4th and 5th. Ash and Madison went with me to the "Pamper My Self" show at Riverside. I think you know kimmykat. I love her hand painted items and her jewelry. I was trying to get one of everything...lol I WISH!! She is so gifted.

I love reading your blog. I'm so sorry that someone hurt you. I send you huge hugs!!!
I am always thankful for the sweet angels that God sends my way when I need them. You always brighten my day when I see you or read your blog. I hope to see you soon sweet Barb!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving and keep on smiling and laughing.
Blessings and Huge hugs, Linda :)
