It's Show and Tell Monday. I have to comment on how beautiful and amazing the MMP Holiday Bazaar Catalog is. I was really stuck on what to do because most of my stuff is one of a kind. Lori of Katie's Rose Cottage ( I love her site ) suggested I offer my sachets eventhough they are all unique. I have to say I have had a ball working on them. I love to make them but never seem to find the time. I hope everyone is doing well with the catalog.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving this week. I am honestly thankful everyday for all that I have in my life ... family, friends, good health for all, a home and job ... but Thanksgiving always gives me time to think about it even more. We spend time with our family and my kids have a ball. I am looking forward to a few homework free days as well. My seventh graders homework is brutal!! The next two days will be hard with tests and projects but then the break comes. It is very cold in CT so we may even get snow for the holiday. My kids would be thrilled! They can't wait for snow. We are all skiers so we're hoping for a snowy season.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for visiting ...

Show and Tell Monday ...
The Nosey Goose was dressed for the holidays this weekend ... we had our annual holiday open house Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Things have been very slow at the shop but I am happy to report that we had a busy and very fun start to the holiday season. We had our doubts with the way the economy has been and the rainy weather we had but I am thrilled to say our event was a success. I took some photos (I am a terrible photographer) to give you an idea of what our shop is like at this time of year.

Turquoise is the "in" color for the holidays this year. I love this look!

This is our white room

This is a little table display of Roxie's lights

This is a photo of the entrance to the shop. It is in an historic house so the stairs greet you at the front door.

Roxie's light strand is on the mantel

Show and Tell Monday ...
The 12 days of Christmas are in full swing but will be ending soon. Make sure to stop by before it ends. All of the beautiful boutiques are offering great specials and free gifts. Get a jump on your holiday shopping with some wonderful, unique gifts for everyone on your list.

We had a quiet weekend here in CT. A bit rainy and a bit cold. The leaves are all falling so it's raking time. I did a bit of painting but spent some time getting ready for our Holiday Open House at my mother's and my shop, The Nosey Goose in Madison, CT. We preview all of our Holiday merchandise with a sale and goodies. We send out postcards to our mailing list and hope for a good turnout. It's always a fun jump start to the season. The shop smells and looks great thanks to my mother. I'll take photos when we are all decorated and post them.

I have lots of the holiday goodies on my site. I also got a new shipment of the oh so comfortable shoes we sell ... OKA b, shoes that love you. I restocked some and got a few new styles, all available on my site. More will be coming soon as well. The new ones are great for the holiday season ... black or brown mini mules with matching velvet ribbons. They are elegant and comfortable. These shoes are reflexology inspired designs made from a patented ruberish material. They are so much cuter in person!!!
