OH MY! Where  did January go?  February is more than half over!!!  Bill and Jennie are loading the trailer today and we are leaving for Vegas on Thursday.   Are your plans made?  Will I see you there?  Great!  We can hardly wait.

Hardly time to sleep, so much to be done before we leave.  The reward of connecting with our wonderful "Circle of Friends" makes it worthwhile.

NEW PATTERNS...... Two new patterns from Rosemary West are on the web.  They are available as paper packets and E-Packets!  Melinda will try to have more e-packets up before we go to Vegas.  Fingers crossed.

Nancy Howard Gray.   Joyce Howard's daughter  will be joining us in Vegas again this year.  And once again her Mom's samples will be on display and patterns will be available.


Ellen Stamilio's daughter, Kim Overholt, recently contacted me and ask if I would publish her designs on my website.  What a wonderful surprise!!!  So stop by our booth and take a stroll down memory lane as you see her lovely samples.  Many of you knew Ellen and loved her designs. Those of you not familiar with her designs are in for a truly special treat.

Ellen's designs will be available in paper packets at Vegas. Some patterns can be ordered online now as e-packets and paper packets.  More packets will be added to our website in the future.

I was  told long ago that "church bells ring when angels earned their wings".   I know they made my heart smile when  I completed them.  A sweet cherub dressed in Lavender... my favorite. The other angel is dressed in Turquoise is so dear and has a ring of roses around her.

Cute, cute Teddy Bear ornaments are ready and waiting to decorate a special Christmas tree.  They hang from a wooden HoHoHo cutout.  They are adorable... you will want to paint them all!!!  Several new packets at Vegas with more to come in the near future.

Driving to Vegas?  Great!!!  There will be the BEST TIN SALE EVER and you will not have to take it on the plane or ship it. The years have been kind to us.  Bill and I are only young in spirit... not in years.   We have a huge, huge inventory.  The time has come for us to downsize.   We are nearing the end of exhibiting at shows.  No definite date set yet too much inventory to know when that might be.   We will keep an online presence.   Now is the time to make decisions about tin you would like. As we run out we will not have a good many of our tin manufactured. When the stock is depleted... there will not be available to purchase. Some of the pieces to be discontinued will be ones we had manufactured for Della and Company. They will only be available from us.


As most of you know a new venture was started recently... A "Gathering of Folk Art Friends Seminars in Waco".  We are so excited to have our  second "gathering" in March with Shara Reiner teaching two great projects.  There is space still available.. still time to make plans to join us.

A fun filled day has been planned on the day before class begins.  Several great gift shops, as well as Magnolias and the Silos for those that have not been there. More detailed information will be added to our web site as soon as I return from Vegas. Antiquing in Waco is wonderful. So I will have a list of Antique shops you can visit as well. So plan to come and have extra days if you are a "serious shopper" and "antique shopping type of girl".. You can check these shops out online now... Spice, The Findery, Christie's. Pappion... and of course there is Magnolias...all fun, fun places owned primarily by women. There is a different atmosphere, unique to each establishment.  Lunch will be at Sironia in their Tea Room.

Lunch will be at Sironia  in their Tea Room.   A unique group of gift shops owned  by individual shopkeepers.  A great mix   of "goods"...  gfts, jewelry, clothing and other wares.

Not very informed about "what to do" while in Waco?  Country Living recently featured Waco in their magazine.  Check out the Southern Living Magazine article.

Waco Chamber of Commerce also has a link that will have information about how to spend your time while in Waco.  Check out the Chamber of Commerce.
