I spent time up in Michigan with family this weekend. I had a good time, did some shopping, ate some good food, and went to some great places. While I was there, I found a delightful quilt shop in Frankenmuth that I'd never visited before, The Front Porch Quilt Shop. My mom and I decided to stop in, and spent over an hour looking at some gorgeous fabrics. They had a great selection, and their fall and Christmas fabrics were on sale! We both left with several pieces of fabric, and I even went back on Saturday before we came home to get a few more pieces. I have grand plans for all of this beautiful and festive fabric!
As of last Friday, there are officially two months until Christmas. This time of the year always goes by so quickly! Thankfully, I didn't have any housework that needed to be done on Sunday, so while the hubs watched football, I got Christmas crafty. I spent all day making these adorable little snowman & tree sets that are available to purchase on Etsy. They turned out just as I had pictured them, and I'm very happy with them. I think I'll keep one set of each color for myself. If they sell well, I'll make more!

I'll be adding new Christmas items soon!
Did you know that I started a new blog? I am making recipes from an antique 1845 cookbook that I own, and revising them to today's recipe standards. It's a lot of fun. I'd love for you to stop by and check it out: The Colonial Cook!
