T'was the Night Before Christmas

Okay, it's not really the night before Christmas. But let me tell you, it sure feels like it! After weeks of painting, sewing, gluing and glittering, our Holiday Open House is finally here!
 

It's our last sale of the year and I think we saved the best for last! But before we could party, there was the painting frenzy...
 
 
the wreath frenzy...
 

the pinecone frenzy...
 
 
the bow frenzy...
 
 
the stocking frenzy...
 
 
and countless deliveries from one end of town to the other.
 
 
And today there was the greens and fluffing frenzy. Hopefully Karla has figured out a way to get all that sap off of her hands. By the end of the day I think her fingers were pretty much stuck together. Susan and Roxane raked the leaves and swept the floors. Our little house is looking pretty! I'm about as exited as a little kid on Christmas Eve! I've already shared a preview post, but here are just a few close-ups of what we accomplished today...
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And now just like this sweet little Santa, I need to close my eyes and get some sleep!
 
 
 If you make it to our open house this weekend, please introduce yourself. I'd love to meet you! To our long-distance blog friends, thank you for all your good wishes!

Oh, pretty please, fingers and toes crossed that the "PEACE" sheet music is still there when I get there tomorrow! It will be perfect to hang under the mantle for Christmas. :) Can't wait to see all of your handiwork!

The sale was beautiful today! I left with a beautiful lit ceramic Christmas tree that is exactly like one my grandmother had in her house. My baby enjoyed all of the cookies and I loved all of the pretty decorations!

What a wonderful selection of fantastic items you had!! I hope that very few of them remain by the time you close the doors this evening.

I'm reading this after the event, but wow--your holiday displays are so pretty! I am pinning this page for holiday inspiration--I love the shredded sheet music with a pine cone and ornament in a pretty container! I am doing a vintage/music/winter holiday kind of thing this year, so this fits right in--thank you so much for all the great inspiration, Sharon!

I wish I lived near you! You must have gotten so many people in the holiday spirit. How do you make the words on sheet music banners?
