Need Keepsake Gifts ?

Busy creating Christmas Sachets.....Printed paper sewed and filled with apple and orange cinnamon potpourris. I used Grosgrain Annie's Ribbonempourium hand dyed ribbons. She has a wonderful shop at Lakewood 400 Antique Show. Seems that I never buy enough...when will I learn ...need more ribbon ! The House Tour was Great. We had very polite young men helping ladies up and down our long staircase...Great job Guys ! Our docents told everyone about the history of the building. Hope all who came had a great time. My little slice of Heaven has never been so clean ! The most asked do you dust everything? WHO DUSTS...After you turn 50  all the dust just disappears.... God is so GOOD !
