Bows, Bags and Bits&Bobbles of Weaving

I have a Red Bow theme going on in my Shop this year.   They are decorating the door wreath, the wire mannequin by the front steps and directing shoppers to the 'Red Bow & Tinsel' Sale. 

For now the sale is 25% off...you know...that magic Christmas number.  Before the last days before Christmas...which will be Saturday the 22nd...all the 'Red Bow & Tinsel' tags will be 50% off...at least most of them...for sure the ones that are for Christmas. 

I've been collecting Christmas Gift Bags since the Thrift shops put them out.  It's amazing how many people donate them to GW, SA and others I shop usually once a week.  I only buy the ones that are that weeks half off tag or marked down and in excellent condition.

Of course I cleaned out my own collection of saved gift bags and added them to the thrift shopped ones.  Shoppers at my Studio Shop seem to really appreciate getting the bags with their purchases.  I'll continue this thrifty bag shopping throughout the year...for special occasions, holidays and birthdays.  Always see lots of Birthday Bags.

And now for Bits&Bobbles of Weaving!
I'm having sooooo much fun weaving on Dorothy...my table loom.  About 15 inches is as wide as the piece can be, but the length can be quite long depending on the warp...the white lines you see on this piece.  All of the horizontal bits and bobbles are called the weave.  This piece is about 14x16 and was made to finish off a 6 yard warp.  It will be a wall hanging when finished.  I have more bits and bobbles to embellish...probably will be an OverDoSue thingy!!


YeOle Shope...Ready for Yule

I've done it again...missed the first day of the month!  However, I have a good excuse.  You see December 1st was 'First Saturday at The Chicken Farm Art Center, and YeOle Shope took precedence over everything else.  Here's how it looked to greet Shoppers....

I think I'll be back before the month/year is over, but just in case....

Short Fall Ya'll

The view from my Studio at The Chicken Farm Art Center.  Doesn't Texas Mother Nature bring a new meaning to Fall Colors?  Of course the day before the leaves turned it was near 80 degrees.  An overnight low of 29 degrees snapped the green right outta them and in the next few days...well, it's a wonderful concoction of reds, yellows and oranges. 
A few greens are still hanging on.  It happens when the weather changes from freezing to hot in a flash!  People ask is it cold or hot in Texas...the answer...Yes!
Fall didn't last very long this year, but I was ready with a colorful array of Fall items. 
 Aren't those the cutest pumpkins with their spool stems?
