Friday’s Unfolded

It’s time for another weekend! YAY! We’ve had snow and cold here this week and from the sounds of it a lot of you out there are enduring or enjoying the same – whichever way you deal with it :D I’ve been getting ready for our Christmas Open House at the shop and fluffing my own house for Christmas. And making stacks of pillows – again. I’m glad it’s weekend time again! I look forward to Sundays during these crazy busy weeks. I’m enjoying what I’m doing but I also enjoy just resting and do nothing too!

And now it is time for Friday’s Unfolded! What has unfolded for you this week? Come link up at the end of the post!

Cranberry Salad ~ my Grandma’s Recipe

A turkey dinner just isn’t complete without cranberry salad – and not just any cranberry salad – it has to be my Grandma’s cranberry salad recipe.

Open House at my Shop!

I spent the day yesterday pricing merchandise and fluffing the shop, getting ready for our Open House. The front windows are all decked out for the holidays now and everything inside is looking pretty and fun. It was a big day, but lots of fun.

New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Fusion™


A week ago I was in warm, sunny Baton Rouge, surrounded by a group of wonderful ladies, learning some wonderful tips and tricks about using Fusion™ paint and all the great products that are included in the Fusion™ line.

My friend, Denise from Feather Your Nest in Pickerington, oh, and I flew into New Orleans early Sunday morning. We spent a few hours seeing the sights and inhaling the rich culture of this beautiful, diverse city. New Orleans is on my list of places to revisit with my family and spend more time there.

Another week has flown by already! You know from my last post that I was in Louisiana for paint training Sunday thru Tuesday. We flew into New Orleans early Sunday morning, spent some time in the French Quarter, drove to Baton Rouge for the night, and attended paint training with Marti Carroll in her shop Bayou Bungalow. Amazing time with some amazing ladies! I’ll share some of my pics soon.

I’m sharing a few of my fav’s from last weeks party (this is the part I was most excited about! I love featuring great bloggers!)



November is flying by! I’ve started my Christmas decorating – way earlier than normal. Usually all the glitter and fun comes out on Black Friday. But this year I have a store to decorate and an open house to prepare for. If I want my house decorated too I have to start earlier. It feels a bit funny, cause I’m not quite in the Christmas mood yet, but it’s still lovely to have the white lights glowing softly in the living room. It’s not so lovely to have the tall stack of tubs that the Christmas decor is stored in sitting in the way. I’ll get it finished up later this week I hope, and send the empty boxes back to the basement.

minted. – the place to order Christmas cards


Christmas cards. Those cute little paper things you send out to friends and family every Christmas. You include a picture. Sometimes a amily picutre. Most time just the kids – cause it’s just easier than trying to get a whole family photo. I used to plan weeks in advance what I was going to do for my Christmas cards. Something fun and crafty and cute. And the pics of my kids were always well planned out in advance, coordinating outfits, cute props, photo shoot scheduled early, pics ordered and delivered in time to mail the cards the first of December.

Metal Cabinet as a Side Table

This past summer I decided I needed another side table in my living room. I had rearranged and moved the side table to the other side of the room. So I needed something to take its place and to put my lamp on. It didn’t work to move my lamp along with the side table because I needed the lamp beside my favorite chair.
