Hear Ye, Hear Ye!!!!

Pssttt....First an announcement about this years 12 days of Christmas Give Away....oh yeah, I am doing it again!  I have been saving up my favorite project patterns and am ready to share them with you...starting Dec. 5th.  So, tell your friends that each weekday starting Dec. 5th-20th I will be posting a GIVE AWAY!!! for registered Woolie followers.  If you happen to be a "no reply" follower I am NOT going to track you down but will announce the winner and you will have exactly 24 hours from when I post the winner to contact me :) otherwise I will let the dog dish cough up a new winner!...Humble Quilts Blog has posted an extrodinary explaination on how to change from a no reply to a Reply ...just click reply and find out how!

This weekend was amazingly beautiful and cold...woke up to 11 degrees!!!  I hear Anne woke up to 5 degrees in Bend!  Clear skies bring cold temps but breathtaking views!

Mr. Bucky was relaxing across the can click on these photos to enlarge and you can actually see he is watching me, lol

A couple of girlfriends and I went to see The Delivery Man.  The was a good movie.  Not just a raunchy nor chick flick genre...but, for an over the top theme it was a good movie and I can see why it has been getting rave reviews.  Don't be turned off by the Sperm Donor/533 kids idea, lol.

This past weekend I had one foot in Thanksgiving and one in Christmas.  Anticipating my schedule and wanting to have a little...just a little head start on Christmas decorating I went to my table runner/topper crock.  This is a great way to decorate and store your table runners.  All the seasons are rolled up and stuffed in there year round.

I chose this one for my dining table...a little pressing and the first bit of decorating is done!

So...are you cooking the Thanksgiving feast????


  1. What a great idea. I used to have a crock but I think I sold it when I moved to Portland...yeah...I know...I too put up my first decoration yesterday...a simple tree and santa...both purchased at Good Will ! Yup...I know.

    It will just be my husband and I and he is cooking...I will prep the stuffing Wednesday night...maybe...have a dinner fundraiser to attend at my son's school so will see.

    Beautiful picture of the mountains.

  2. Love the crock idea, I think they are hard to find these days. Mr. Bucky looks very comfortable. We have two that appear in the yard every now and again.

  3. Like the crock idea.. think I will use it too.

    Going to my daughters for Thanksgiving dinner. Lucky me I bring the pies and help her with the rest at her house. Always a fun time with the grandkids..

  4. That is a spectacular view. I like your crock idea, nice way to store them.


  5. I need to find a big crock!~ I love that idea!! Great view. Yep, I'm cooking. DH and DS are looking forward to it. LOL They are both great kitchen helpers. ;-) Have a happy day!

  6. got the crock loaded - thanks for the idea

  7. Wow, what a view - it is beautiful! Love your crock idea...great way to decorate & so practical. Can't wait for the giveaway...I check in often; don't want to miss any of the fun stuff. LOL

  8. I woke up to 18* in NC.
    how interesting to see that buck taking it easy.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  9. Love the beautiful mountain view you shared...And the comfortably resting buck...cute! I have a crock that my husband (deceased 22 years ago) bought me long ago. It was made in the town in Illinois where I was born...Great find! It currently stores onions and potatoes in the pantry... your idea was MUCH more useful!

  10. love the mountains, love the colors!
    love that big crock and what it contains, I love that topper, it's beeuuuutttiiiiffffullll!
    Count me in on the giveaway, I remember last years, it was a lot of fun to see what you gave away and who won! Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. Great pics! As always love your blog. Excited for the give aways. I have a sister that lives in John Day, not to far from you. She often talks about your area.
    Happy Turkey day.

    1. Thank you! My youngest used to go to camp around John Day...beautiful country! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  12. I am thankful for you and your wonderful blot. You add a little creative insanity to my life. I will be hosting our gathering of 19 in my studio. It's the one time each year it gets a deep cleaning. I'll make the turkey and stuffing, my family brings the rest. No Christmas decorations come out until the turkeys come home to roost :)
    Have yourself a wonderful holiday. Look forward to the give away next month.

  13. No not cooking : ) My sister in law is cooking, I will bring a dish. Love the crock idea also. I am always looking for neat storage ideas.
