I am taking a break from crafting just long enough to do this post. On Friday and Saturday, there will be the "Hidden Cottage Christmas Craft Boutique here at my home. Am I ready for this? NO! I still am working on finishing up crafts I have started, but not starting new ones. But that is not all, as I have to clean up the house and decorate. Will I get it all done. Maybe with a little lack of sleep. Here are few more things that will be sold in my boutique.

The last day of November and the first day of December, I will host the Hidden Cottage
craft boutique, so I have been crafting away night and day! I will be posting the crafts I will be selling there. I have finished lots, but just for starters, here are some pictures of some of the crafts I have been working on.
A visit from St. Nickolaus shadow box
I took a vintage music box and made this with it. I added some new foil embossed wings,
tinsel and a shaker box. It plays Silent night and I think it looks so sweet!
I had these two little porcelain doll heads laying around, so I embellished them and turned them into ornaments.
I found these two mini trays, that I turned into l did a litittle chalkboard ornaments. Stay tuned for
more pictures and posts about the crafts I will have for the boutique.
And if any of you bloggers out there are getting your craft on, then "Happy Crafting to all and to all a Good night!"

I put away all the Halloween decorations yesterday, and today is my anniversary of my husband and I 's first date, so we are taking off a little early today to celebrate. When the Halloween decorations came down, then I just shifted to Thanksgiving. I love November, because of two reasons; First of all, it is the month when we think about all that we are thankful for, (although I try to do this all the time) and second it is the month we start preparing for Christmas. Thank goodness, we don't have a presidential election every November, because I don't think we could handle that every year. Can't wait until it is over! My heart goes out to all those who were affected by the horrific storm on the east coast!
My Mikasa Thanksgiving platter is ready for that Turkey!
My centerpiece for the table might change a bit in the next couple of weeks.
And then this is the other faux mercury glass treatment that I did on a plastic pumpkin. I used bright silver paint with a touch of hammered iron. I love spray paint! I paid $1.00 for each one of my pumpkins treated. So HAPPY NOVEMBER TO ALL!
