Tis The Season

I had every intention of giving you some great gift ideas you can get from Sisters' Garden and Bloom. With me being a designer I am always looking for most of these items were shot because I thought they would look great on my blog. But of course they would still make great gifts.

Simply Iowa

My friend Barb, has a fantastic wonderland of a shop called Cross Creek Antiques. About a month ago she had her first of two Christmas Open House's. I love her open houses...I shop and chat for 3-4 hours. There is so much to see, I wander and wander...enjoying all of the amazing, unique merchandise. Because I can't buy the whole store, my mind races as I try to figure out which items speak to me the most.

I'm sure you still have more Christmas shopping to do...don't worry, I've got you covered. Start your Saturday off at Sisters Garden and then head to Cross Creek Antiques for the second Christmas Open House....It's the perfect day! Support small businesses and get some very special gifts for yourself and others!!!

Christmas Wish

Two dress forms greet you as you enter my space.

What's your Christmas wish? About a year ago, one of my wishes came true...getting a space in the very cool store I had been shopping at for the past ten years, Sisters Garden. What a fantastic year it has been. I want to personally thank all of the wonderful people who have helped and supported me this past year. Including all the blog friends who have left such nice comments. Thank You!

Thinking of wishes, besides world peace I always wish for snow on Christmas. So snow is what I used for my theme this year. Enjoy...

Linen and fringe trees I designed.

My hoot and a half neighbor, Sharon, sells the yummiest soap so I always have soap dishes.

I hung Ironstone to form a wreath

Swedish tin mold and prism ornaments I designed.

Feed sack heart ornaments my sister in-law helped me make.

No holiday party is complete without a cocktail.

Sign I made out of old books.

Religious area

Absolutely Love this concrete saint statue.

I worked on my space for 18 hours and I still didn't have time to hang these paper doilies from the ceiling throughout my space...
