It's beginning to feel a lot like...

Well, maybe not quite yet... But our "Seasonal Sensations" Show has definitely helped me to move on past Halloween :)We had such a lovely time with our home folk art show and bake sale held in the warm and inviting home of my sister-in-law Joy, of Joyfully Yours. It was such a blessing to have my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and niece (Joy's daughter) assist us with the show - a double blessing - holding the show and spending time with loved ones.
It was such a feast for all the senses - the scent of simmering spiced apple cider, soft strains of relaxing music, samplings of our bake sale sweets...

Joy's home was inspiring. Her unique garlands over each window were so pretty...
It appeared that everyone enjoyed themselves as they lingered chatting with friends.
I hope that you can join us next year.
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." -Matthew 18:20
Here is My mom's recipe (Thanks Mom!) for Sugar Cookies (that many of you asked for). They were a big hit at the bake sale...
1 c oil
1 c butter
1 c sugar
1 c powdered sugar
2 eggs
4 c flour
1 t baking soda
1 t cream of tartar
1 t salt
1 t vanilla
Cream oil, butter, sugars and vanilla.
Add eggs.
Add dry ingredients.
Drop spoonful of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet. Press flat with bottom of juice glass dipped in sugar.
Bake 375 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes.
Makes 8 dozen.
Thank you to each and everyone of you that made our afternoon a success - from our helpers to our customers! We truly appreciate each of you.

Blessings, Patti

Glad you had a successful show. I did one of those myself a couple of years ago and would love to do one again next November. You must sew all year long for it I bet. Would love to hear if you have any tips that you've learned in doing this.

I used to participate in several shows and open houses a year and these pics made me miss doing them. Your displays look wonderful.
