Show and Tell Monday, 10/27/08

Here comes Monday, again. These weeks seem to fly by faster and faster all the time. We have run the gamut with the weather this week. It was down into the 20's a few nights, 30's during a few days, rainy yesterday, incredible thunderstorms last night and today we were back into the 60's and a beautiful sunshiny day. Mother Nature is just a tad confused, I think.
I have been really busy this week with trying to get ready for the 12 days of Christmas Shop Hop coming up November 2. Here's a sneak preview of what I've been working on. These are rayon and silk velvet stockings trimmed with vintage laces and medallions.

We also have Pink Friday this week, In the Basket. Lots to do, I think those of us participating in all these events at Make Mine Pink can really rival Santa's elves.
As predicted, this past Friday was truly incredible. Make Mine Pink's Pink Friday's theme of Coming Up Roses is definitely a favorite all the way around, customers to shop owners. There were more participating boutiques this past week than I've ever seen. I believe there were 40. Every one of the shop owners out did themselves. What fabulous products! This was a fun one.
So, my friends, that is it until next Thursday when we celebrate another Pink Friday.

Hi Pat,
Your Christmas stockings are really pretty...I like the little medallions because it makes them so very unique. Hope we have a great shop hop....can't wait! Central Valley weather is really pretty this time of year, except where I live we get dust from the farmers harvesting their crops...that I don't like!! Have a great week!!

Great stockings. Looks like you've been busy. I must be in the same area as you because our weather has been the same. We lost power Sat. night. Fortunately it was back on in the morning.

Hi Pat!

What a pretty stocking! I love anything with lace and the red really looks perfect with white. You did a beautiful job. Hard to believe that this is the last week of October! Before you know it Christmas. I bet that stocking will look beautiful in someone's home because I just know it won't last!
