A Swap, A past Win, and my Sale

Good Morning, well we went shopping yesterday to Lowe's, not a bad crowd at all. We were going to get the fence to put up, But realized that the pickets were too wide and Miss Rango could escape LOL, And when she escapes she does not stop running. So we decided to build our own, we came home and did all of the figuring on what materials we would need. HMMM I may get a fence soon?? LOL I wanted it so I would not have to go out in the COLD winter weather and stand with them while they do their business?
So we instead got a live Tree!! Wow I have a tree......We put it up last night
No pictures to share it is pretty BARE!! I NEED ornaments LOL!!! It is a 6 foot tree a Fir and so pretty just kind of naked right now!

Hubby insisted he knew someone that we could hire to make some ornaments for it LOL..........I just sit in amazement at the fact that I have made tons and tons of ornaments for orders and not made any for myself!!

I will snap a picture and share later. I wanted to share a few things with you first my Sale

From now until Monday evening I am running a 10% off sale example the Santa above is listed for $28.99 with 10% off he will be $26.09 and you will get a free gift with him.
If you do not do Etsy please contact me You can email me using the link in the left sidebar at the top
If you see something that has sold etc. That you would like to order just let me know

This will be the last sale of the year for me and then I will be adding Spring items

A few weeks ago I won a Giveaway. This giveaway was from Carol of FirecrackerKidPrimitives
And Linda of WARMTH . Well Linda was affected by the horrible snow up north and went without power for so long. I finally got the shelf but it was minus one little mouse LOL. So *Linda* Informed me that he was in a little box under her table. Little Critter wanted to stay home, was not sure he wanted to travel. I believe he was frightened by the Weather LOL. So I got my little mouse and wanted to share it with you, Isn't it just adorable!! Thank you Carol and Linda!

  2. Those are great goodies Brenda! Love your santa-you do such high quality work. LOL "Rango on the Run!" Have a great day ~*~Lisa

  3. Hi, we braved the crowds too and found that it wasn't crowded at all. Great swap items! I never keep any of my stuff either, my tree is full of everyone elses homemades. Hope you have fun decorating your tree.

  4. Wow...the queen of ornaments has no ornaments for her own tree? There's something terribly wrong with THAT! ;o) Congrats on your win from Carol and Linda - glad the little mouse wised up and realized the weather is probably better in his new forever home...Love your swap goodies from Amy - I love beeswax - and that little pottery bowl with the pantry cake is adorable. Hope you are getting lots of stitching in....Happy Sunday. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  5. I can only imagine you running after little one dog runs too and the fence is a lifesaver. Glad I could help you with a few ornies to decorate your tree.I'm glad you like your goodies believe me I was you have a wonderful week!~Amy

  6. Oh my goodness, I love love love your swap goodies! You had such a great partner!

    Better get busy rustling up some ornies for that're like the cobbler whose children have no shoes! LOL


  7. I LOVE the pottery piece. You sound just like me - I do tons of Christmas baking and end up giving much of it away. Last year I ended up giving away so much of my canned goodies, we ended up running short later in the year.

  8. Brenda, your swap items are terrific. I would be very pleased with any one of them.
    How are "the girls"? I want to order your Santa above, with a Master Card. Can I do that? I've never ordered on here before.
    I'll email you and see what happens!!
    Warm Wishes,

  9. That's funny, I'm with you on making things we need for someone else. We love doing that though don't we :-)
    Can't wait to see your Christmas tree. So glad to see your mouse arrived. They are cute lil buggers.
    Ah yes, I love the blackened beeswax too. Love that primitive look.

  10. What a fun giveaway you won. That little mouse is very cute. Your swap items are wonderful. I love the beeswax ornaments. Your dogs are funny. How frustrating to have your fence "unfencable". Good luck.

  11. I love your swap loot from Amy! It's all so nice - love those beeswax and snowman star ornies. The stocking is so cute with those snowmen heads on it! And love that pottery piece, too! Nice size for tucking in a little spot. :)
    Love your win from Carol and Linda - and the story about the mouse. :)
    Hope you can get some crafting done just for you!


I really do enjoy your comments
