Good morning sweet friends. I think it is about time to shake things up a bit at the old farm and have a "Christmas in July" giveaway for all my beloved followers. But before I give you all the juicy details, I wanted to share a couple of pics with you. We were at Mr. Wonderful's parents farm and found this cute Roadmaster Trike buried under a pile of stuff. Of course, I could not pass it up and felt a strong need to rescue it from a pile going to the dump. No, no, no....not going anywhere but home with me. We figure this little trike is from the late 50's/early 60's and ridden by Mr. Wonderful's younger siblings. It is in GREAT shape only missing the rubber foot pedals.
We have been under an extreme heat wave and drought for our area since the middle of May. The daily ritual includes numerous trips outside to water everything. Here are a couple of pics of some of my flowers that are continuing to flourish despite the heat. The first pic is my moon flower plant and one of my personal favorites and then the second is some of the wave petunias on our back porch.
Ok...now on to the fun stuff. Since my birthday is this month, what better way to celebrate than a "Christmas in July" giveaway. Here are the goodies that are included:
A 16 inch black Santa made from a TFC Folkart pattern. His suit is red wool, the trim on his suit is antique white felted wool and his beard is raw sheep's wool that has been needle felted to his cute little face.
Also included are 6 vintage style candy canes made using a pattern from The Wooden Nail. This is one of my favorite patterns as I think these candy canes look like a true vintage find. And last, three of my own six inch gingerbread men finished with my own spice mixture giving them a just- baked look and a wonderful scent.
