The TDIPT Mercantile is turning 5 this year! A birthday is always more fun with a few surprises, so the TDIPT Artisans will be giving away some lovely handmade gifts! You can see the offerings and specifics on entering here on the TDIPT Mercantile Blog. It's easy! The grand prize will be a $50 gift certificate good toward any purchase at the Mercantile! I'm sending one winner the skinny bunny on the left in the photo below. The other one is looking for a new home...

It's been record setting busy this Holiday Season at Old Branch Hollow! Lots of concerts, parties, shopping, decorating, and a trip to Colorado thrown in there too. I'm certainly ready to spend some time at home, and do some baking.
I am way overdue to share photos of the wonderful ornaments I received in Amy's swap.
The first three are all from Theresa. You can visit her lovely etsy shop HERE. Her cross stitch is SO tiny. Gorgeous!
This snowman is from Marie/ Old Lady Morgan. Awesome, right? She used the best wiggly twigs for his arms, and his tags were so cute, I left them on. LOVE him.
The final 3 are all from Patti/Raspberry Lane Primitives. There's a wooden peppermint candy and chenille candy cane, both thrimmed with greenery and sweet annie. Santa is made of wool, with a wool beard, and he smells like Cinnamon. So cute and PERFECT on my tree.
Although my crappy photography skills aren't doing any of these ornies justice. I adore them all, and am so grateful to my swap partners for such generous gifts.Thank you to Amy at Bumble Bee Lane for hosting.
Y'all know what a bad blogger I am, so I'll wish you all the Merriest Christmas now. Enjoy this special time of year with those you love...

I know I've been quiet for a while now. Both boys are in marching band and we are right in the midst of our busiest part of the season, with games on Friday nights and all day competitions on Saturdays. I've been spending every spare second in my studio, working toward my first ever update on Early Work Mercantile. I'm so honored to be a part of this group. I'm a little star struck, with so many of my most admired folk artists there.
I've got a ton to do today. First off though is an overdue appointment with my hair stylist. Gotta hide those greys!
Wishing you all a lovely Fall day!

For this week's display, Misi asked us to choose two colors for just one display. The choices were black and orange, black and white, or black and green. I chose black and white...
That's it for me today. I'm busy working on a few more things for Fall. I hope to have some things for my selling blog and etsy this week. We'll just have to see how busy the family decides I will be! Please stop by 1890 Gablehouse Musings to see all the lovely displays.
Hope you're having a lovely Autumn day, wherever you might be...

After a very busy summer, I need a kick in the behind to get back into the blogging routine. Misi's display chain is always fun, and just what I need to get going again. Yes, this normally happens on Tuesday, but my scheduled post didn't appear yesterday. We'll say it was Blogger misbehaving again, not user error. Misi is graciously allowing me to link up a little late, being the sweet natured girl that she is. This week's theme is "Framed In".
Here is my take on this theme...
An old oyster crate that "frames" some dried gourds on the mantle.
Have a blessed day!
