Needing some Magic!

there must have been some magic in 
that old silk hat they found..."
I need a magic hat... wonder if Frosty 
would loan me his! ???

 The Whistle Stop's Holiday Open House is
in 12 short days! 
I need his magic hat to work
 a few miracles for me.

 ... to suspend time for just a little while
 ... to warm the temperatures & let the sun shine
 ... to help the creativity flow
 ... to give me energy to burn the midnight oil
... & then get up  in the morning full of energy
... to keep a smile on my face during it all! 

Maybe I"ll  need a few magic hats!

Vintage Kitchen Store Give Away... check it out!

Check out the give away at 
She has some adorable things in her
Etsy store!
(last day to enter Oct. 14th)

If I would happen to win
I'd choose the little yellow teapot
with it's winter jacket and would send it on
to a good friend! She has a teapot collection...
not one she started herself or asked for. (lol)
But, this little yellow teapot is the same accent 
color in her kitchen and I think she'd actually use 
this little gem! Now if  "we" win... I wish I could go the 
1600 miles to have a cup of tea with her! 
Any contest out there for airfare!?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I know we live in Nebraska, but it's 
early October for goodness sakes!
We still have lot's of garage work 
(in an unheated garage)
to do for our Holiday Season! 
 Oh, well... it's Mother Nature and maybe 
she's just getting me in the mood!
