I'm holed up in my crafting studio

       The weather was so wonderful this year that I nearly missed October altogether. Now we are busy preparing for the Christmas shows we will be doing this season. They are suddenly almost here.

      Our first Christmas open house will be November 8-11 at Glory Days Antiques in Springfield. 
                                             A "Joyeux Noel".

     We have a wonderful evening planned on November 8th from 5-8. There will be lots of tasty treats and cider , gifts for the first 100 guests, and a store filled to the brim with Holiday cheer.  There will be sparkling Santas, glittery snowmen, fresh wreaths, fabulous French religious holiday decor, vintage Christmas , and lots of tree and home decor. 
      Please plan on joining us and bring a friend . The open house will continue through the weekend . Remember the fun begins Thursday the 8, 5-8 (We will be closed during the day Thursday in preparation)  Then Friday- Sunday 10-5
