gentlemen...start your engines.....

One of the sweet treats my daughter and I made for the sale were these little candy Santa sleighs.
You can pick what ever candy you like and create lovely little gifts that are great for the kids to give to each other or sweet little teacher gifts.
Start with a full size candy bar and hot glue the candy cane sled rails (as you see at the bottom of this picture).  I used my two favorites: Reese's and Kit Kats. 
I secure the rails with a little extra hot glue on the sides.
Then pile up the mini candy bars.  Add a  pretty ribbon and a little bow.  
I finished mine off with these cute little chocolate Santa's I found at Aldi's.
 And yes,  a glass of wine is always nice to accompany any creation :)

a huge thank you!!

Wow!  We are humbled!  
We want to say THANK YOU to everyone who came over the weekend to visit us.  
We thought the pouring down rain would keep everyone away!
It didn't!!
It was so great to see so many old friends and make some new ones!
Thank you to all our wonderful friends and customers who stood in the rain.
Thanks to my darling son who worked the muddy parking lot and made sure no one got stuck! 
Thanks to my sweet daughter who helped me so much.
Thanks to my wonderful French Hen Farm crew, which without you this wouldn't be possible...
Thanks to my sisters, Becky and Sandy; my cousins Judy, Jane and Bonnie; and my friends Anne, Cindy, Kim, Carrin and Jeff, Jenni and AJ, Mechele; and my mom, who instilled this love of what we do here.
And a very special thanks to my hubby who helps me every day and loves this as much as I do!

snow deer

Here is another Table centerpiece I made.  This one started with an old ironstone plate. 
I found an old bottle brush tree and some vintage deer.
I brushed the deer with some glue and sprinkled snow and glitter on them.
Topped them off with a glass dome!
Perfect winter centerpiece!

hubby's creation

Every sale, my husband has a pet project that he works on.
This beautiful piece is this shows "special project."
She is equally beautiful on both sides.  
So it  can be used as an island or a buffet.

Here is how it started...

Its top was layers and layers of green paint....  

He sanded it forever, but the top is beautiful now.  
I think the top is one solid piece of wood.
He added some much needed woodwork on the body.
I painted it and waxed it.  He cleaned the hardware.
I wish I had room for her, because I think she is beautiful!

holiday buffet

Here is a gorgeous buffet from the wonderfully talented Jenni from The Vintage Songbird.  She will have some beautiful pieces for sale at our Sale on Dec 7 & 8.
She does the most amazing work!

french classics

Wish I had a before picture of this beauty.  She started out painted all black...  all of her.  
You couldn't even see the beautiful details she had.
Now that she is painted you can see all the beautiful detailed wood carving.  I love her!
Then I painted this pretty dresser/buffet to match her.

Both will be available at the sale this coming Friday and Saturday!
