A Special Show Worth The Trip

We are participating in a special show this month....Katie's Christmas Cottage! It's the perfect size and has plenty of Christmas spirit to put you in the mood! It's filled with a great selection of vintage, handmade and both Christmas and home decor.

I just love this vintage Tea Cart. The lines are quite contemporary and I wish I could think of a reason to buy it! Isn't she cute!

This is one of the Cottage displays. Love that tree!

The Tuscany section turned out wonderful and feels warm and welcoming. This is one of my favorite displays too.

I just love the Retro Christmas done in Red and Turquoise! These are too cute!

I love the idea of using ordinary things in my Christmas decor! These vintage Thermos containers are perfect! Come by and enjoy this special show! Open now through December 24th 10:30am to 5:30pm and located at 4812 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Raleigh Hills Oregon! This special show is worth the trip! For more information visit

Oh Where Oh Where Has My Little Blog Gone!

Oh where or where has my little blog gone! Oh dear! I am so sorry for such a laps! Seriously…my life has been crazy! When I was trying to think of a title for this post, I thought about how many different ones would be appropriate for this post…things like: "Missing In Action", "What I Did On My Summer And Or Fall Vacation", "Weddings, Events and Funerals Oh My!", and "Nothing Is Better Than Family Time!" Everyone of those titles would describe in part why the last couple of months have been so awesome…but crazy! Anyone who really knows me, would say I’m a perfectionist, workaholic type personality, so the fact that I let this blog go for so long just speaks to the dead run I have been on for the past couple of months. I can’t complain, my time has been filled with so many wonderful blessings.

Seeing my Son be accepted into a prestigious collage program and moving him from one end of the state to the other....

(BYU Campus!)

(His New Apartment Complex...spoiled!)

...completing many weddings, funerals and big time events with my floral & design business,
(A few of my weddings)

(Floral and Booth Design for As Good As It Gets Catering Company...super fun people to work with!)

...and spending precious time with our daughters and two sweet grandsons is just the best of times!.

...Add into that an extremely busy show schedule...
(Funky Junk Sisters Junk Salvation Show)
(Our display at Ruffles and Rust) responsibilities, taking care of my elderly Mom and everyday life and there is not much time left over. So my apologies for being gone for so long, but as you can see even though my life is a bit crazy….I am truly blessed. There you go, now that’s the best title of all.
