Early in December I took a weekend road trip with Molly to Pittsburgh. She was going to be selling her adorable goods at her very first craft show Handmade Arcade. It was so much fun to get to go along and be her helper, and she did so great! She even wants to do more now, which is always a great sign.
We took Route 30 to Pittsburgh which is the fun scenic way. The weather was pretty rainy and dreary but we got to stop at thrift and antique shops along the way. We even stopped into the Pie Shoppe Bakery for some amazing donuts.
We started the drive home right after the show, but ended up stopping in at a hotel for the night about an hour outside the city. It worked out really well because Sunday the weather was beautiful and we stumbled upon Green Gables which was offering Sunday brunch and a free photo with Santa. We also hit up a few more antique malls and I’ll have to get photos of the fun things I found. A few were Christmas gifts, and a few for myself. You can see the fun salt and pepper shakers I found on our way to Pittsburgh above. Can’t wait for our next road trip!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to you and yours! I know my blog has been pretty quiet through out the whole holiday season, but I am hoping to play catch up over the next few weeks.
I came down with pneumonia right after Halloween, and it really knocked me out much more then I expected. Besides making sure I was caught up with my normal work stuff (POM, license design stuff, etc.) there just wasn’t a lot of time left for blogging.
Here are a few peeks from our home this holiday season. We did our normal white tree, and real tree. This year’s real tree was extra skinny to fit into a space without moving furniture around, and it worked out well!
I’ve been enjoying these few days after Christmas to clean up my computer which was loaded down with three years worth of photos. I ordered prints, made a slideshow dvd, and now I am looking forward to starting a new year (and promising myself to be a bit better with photo organization, but we will see ;)
