Holiday Shopping at The Pine Tree Barn~

Hello Friends~
This is Ella and I at the The Pine Tree Barn in Wooster, Ohio getting ready to have a delightful lunch in their restaurant. It's well known for their lemon muffins, so delish! 
The Pine Tree Barn is a family owned business that has been around forever. They sell high end furniture and accessories for the home, and have three floors of rooms to walk through. What I especially love at this time of the year is that every room is decorated for the Holiday, and I enjoy seeing it all put together, gives you great ideas and everything is for sale if you must have it!!!! Plus, everything Christmas was 30% off!!!! Believe me, you'll never go home empty handed. 
What more could you ask for? Spending time with a dear friend, a nice lunch and shopping? This is our 2nd year visiting The Pine Tree Barn for the Holiday sale and we've decided to make it a  ritual. Sounds good to me!!!! Hope you enjoy the photos~
Best Wishes for the Holidays!

My Hearts Aches.........

~~Sandy Hook~~

For the Families who lost their beloved children, for the Families who lost one of their beloved family members. I pray that God gives you strength during this horrific time, and that he will comfort you and keep you wrapped in his loving arms......I will be thinking of you often and I will be lifting you up in prayers now and in the weeks and months to come.
God Bless You~

Sassy Stitchers Christmas Party 2012

Hello Dear Friends~

It has been such a long time since my last post, I have missed blogging!!And hearing from you! 
Let me just say you are going to really enjoy this post!! This is the 1st stitching party of the Holiday, I am so Blessed to be in 2 groups that meet for stitching and friendship every month. This is the Thursday night group that meets every Thursday at Pat Catan's - they are kind enough to let us use their craft room. We draw names at the Christmas party to find out who we will be stitching for the following year. So much fun!
We had dinner at LaPizzaria in Canton, they serve some fabulous Italian food. We enjoy dinner and each other, then the time comes for the exchange, by then we are quite loud, talking, laughing and anticipating who has our name!!! One person starts by giving their gift to the person they got and then she gives her gift to the next person, that way we open one at a time and we all can oooh and awwww and yell out, it is crazy, we are in delirious stitching gift love!!! It's wonderful to see the happy faces!!  We know each other quite well, so we know what type of stitching each person loves and so your gift is the BOMB!!!!! lol  The giving part is amazing!!! Watching your friend open up the gift you made with love~~~ I do hope you enjoy all the pictures, oh and by the way that little candy cane made on aida!!! was a joke gift, given before the really nice gift~~~Joan was up to no good, getting a funny in, and she has a laugh that you will never forget! Love it!!

Merry Christmas & God Bless~
