work in progress

I don't even want to say the word...Christmas...oh, there it is, it's out there.
The most bizarre thing about retail is the way we work so far ahead of the actual Holiday. I order product in January...it arrives in June....and I start to create before Halloween....CRAZY!
Oh. But it is FUN!!
Here is a sneak peak ... not much... just a peak...









Much more fun to be had.
My Premiere is Nov. 7 - 8 and I have a ton of work to do. If you see the lights on at the Barn past midnight you'll know it's just me...if only I had a few elves.

tick - tock

Time is on my mind.
So much to do for the Holiday preparation.
My store...being in a state of disarray...can not be photographed!
What better to focus on when time is on ones mind...Clocks! I happen to have lots of them.


... and they are fun to photograph.







a fun view

time in a bottle

love the pearls












big ben - baby ben
my wall.... many have asked for pictures of my wall collage





treasures


so simple




just a few clocks.... from the guest bath, living room and kitchen. I grabbed a few photos at 6:30 am before I left for the hospital.... so I skipped the clocks upstairs.... the sleeping gang would not have approved pictures taken in their lairs...


can you tell I love white

15 days and counting....tick - tock
