Tis the season !

It's cold in South Dakota! The shop is buttoned up for the winter after a busy season, only the bravest of shoppers stop in the winter months as we have no heat. That doesn't stop some of my hardier customers from braving the cold to see what's new. I've been busy do the Christmas thing around my house. Although I never seem to get everything done I manage to get it done enough. The tree is up, the lights are up, the gifts are bought or made ( let's not talk about wrapping just yet). This old goat cart was in pieces when I found it at my friends garage sale last summer, I had to have it anyway, it's great on the deck for seasonal displays or flowers .
This was my year for silver and red decorations, I kept things simple and try to use alot of natural elements.

Always the vintage glass ornaments have a special place.

Paper mache santa boots are another favorite collectible.
