Happy November.....

where oh where has this year disappeared?
It seems like just a few weeks ago we were preparing for the move to the Lane and here we are, here nearly six months already!

Update on the "Snowy Gatherings" candle mat class here at YLD....
We have two daytime classes filled and have a night time one scheduled for December 1 at 6pm with two spots left.  Please let me know if you'd like to join us for this evening of fun!

I have been diligently working on getting the Barn at SBF in order for our
"Christmas at the Farm" 
November 20 & 21
Still lots to do but things are taking shape.  I had no idea what I might have hanging out in my inventory of trees but I've ordered some new ones and I've been busy making some great little feather trees in antique containers.  Stitching up some wool items, lots of handmade ornaments and plans next week to start putting fresh greens, berries and rose hips together....oh, and I found some awesome witch hazel that I'm hoping to cut and mix in as well!  
Coverlet stockings and cross stitched cupboards hangers are also on the list.  
I do mean "the list" literally.....as if I didn't make "the list", my ADD would take over my OCD and it's no telling what you might be greeted with on the 20th!

I have two wonderful wing chairs, custom made from Country Manor Furniture that I ordered and purchased for the new house.  Well, I had forgotten how large this style of wing chair is...and although it lent itself well to the Farmhouse...not so much here in the little Lane house.  
I have tried them everywhere and they just don't work here in the Gathering room....or the bedroom, believe me I've tried. 
So, I am offering these very, very gently used chairs at my cost to anyone who might be interested.  
They are top grade fabric in a muted mustard solid coverlet pattern with antique stained wood legs.
They are wonderful but this house cries for something much smaller.

If you think you might be interested let me know.  The fabric is a bit more mustard than it shows here but still very neutral.  I love this fabric!  I wanted to let all of you know before I post them elsewhere.
I would be happy to send along more pics and you are also welcome to set up a time to come see them.  

Wishing you all a fabulous week....looks like some great weather coming our way and I am hoping to wrap of the task of decking that Barn out!
