Tony and I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope you get to spend it with family and friends.
We will celebrate at our son's home where "everyone" will gather and break bread together.  It will be "hectic".....with 10 grands running around - a boyfriend and a girlfriend (oh la la) will come later to celebrate (the grandchildren are growing up) !  In laws, outlaws - everyone is welcome.  Grateful for all the work Wendy puts into having all of us.

I am so thankful for all the blessings that have been bestowed on me and my family.  To be able to go to work where I get to play, socialize, and even make some $$$, is so special.  That I have friends that are loyal and honest...that don't believe the "stuff" that some jealousy puts out there.  Customers who are quick to compliment and return often.

Family that is close and enjoys being together.  Children who love us and include us in their daily lives.  Grandchildren who are happy and good.  For the blessings God has given us, I am humbled and grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone - eat lots of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie....Diet on Friday!! (or better yet - just make it a New Year's Resolution...)!!    Blessings, Judy

How embarrassing....

Truly heart felt apologies - that's all I have to say about my lack of posting...Today that ends.

We started our "Jolly Olde Christmas" November 7th and are having a wonderful time...  restocking everyday with replacements and "new" merchandise!  Christmas Carols are softly playing - hot cocoa is going round and round in our now "famous" hot cocoa machine...and Christmas cookies are being "munched" on!  (sadly they are store bought - but I must admit they are really, really good)!

I love love love this time of year.  Everything is sparkling ( and so are most customers when they leave)!! (big smile)  We have a great mixture of pretty, prim and sophisticated treasures - always something for everyone.  We expect more handmade goodies by Black Friday and hope you will put us on your shopping travels.

In the past two weeks we had open house, Tony's arm operation, surprise birthday party for daughter-in-law Wendy and other commitments to many to list!  But all is back to normal....ahhhh wait...Next week is Thanksgiving - and Black Friday and the following weekend is our Annual Sleigh Ride thru Zionsville and Hereford. ( no rest but I like it that way) (with our new hours, for the first time I have Tuesday and Wednesday off before Thanksgiving -woohoo!!)

We hope you will stop in and enjoy some of our Christmas Spirit...we have enough to share!!
Trying not to post any pictures of goodies we are sold out of.... :(
These pictures are so random....you need to come see it all !!

The weather has turned to a true fall - chilly willy at night and early morning, then turning nice during the daytime hours...!!I MUST get out and harvest the herbs that certainly have given us a third cutting this season!

With Halloween fast approaching I see so many homes decorated - doesn't matter to me if they are the big inflated monsters and pumpkin houses, or the cornstalks attached to porch posts, mailboxes and lampposts....surrounded by lots of orange  pumpkins...it is ALL wonderfully beautiful !  October is going too fast for me...as I have to think of the next holiday....yes, coming too fast.

I am working on more Thanksgiving pillows (the first batch sold quickly), as I don't want this holiday to go forgotten by us.  We have wax turkeys - they look great - and some Pilgrim Sitters are on their way from Helen Voytilla.

And, here is our Christmas Open House flyer.   (click on picture to read)
and....our turkeys and pillows !

We also have the coolest brown bags (see in background) with a "Turkey" printed on front - great to give a small gift to the your "Thanksgiving" hostess and nice enough to frame !

Stop in the store soon as new goodies arrive all the time!

I know I have been laxed in posting BUT - with the new computer everything went "haywire"....upgrades are NOT, in my opinion, worth the confusion.  Determination finally won and I can now log into my blog without changing the password every (yes every) single time!!
So by now all the "news" is old news so I might as well let you know what it happening now.  Our Halloween workshops are over and Christmas ones are in the planning stages....HOWEVER...we are so enjoying the fall and Halloween in the store.  We still have a nice display of fall and Halloween....adding some Thanksgiving as fast as we can!

Will post Christmas flyer as soon as it gets printed.  Stop in the store for the Cinnamon Thymes Christmas newsletter.  MY seasons are colliding but it is fun no matter which one I am working on.

Our last workshop was making "Afterlife Fairies".....it was fun and all are sold that were in the store....will work on more today and tomorrow !  Here's a peek at the workshop and fairies...
...a really fun group of gals.
