Even Atheists Need Love...

Whether someone wishes you Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings, what they are doing is telling you they wish you happiness and peace – that is, of course, the meaning behind all of the holidays during this wonderful time of year. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or none of the above, the reason for the season is still the same. So, to all the poor souls who choose to be angry about being told Merry Christmas I say: no matter what the words, the sentiments are filled with love. Open your cranky little Grinch heart and let it in.

Falling Off The Face Of The Earth

Handcrafted Pincushions
I recently read that you aren’t supposed to apologize for a lack of posts, but I feel the need to do so anyway – I’m so very grateful for my readers and I hoped when I started my little blog to post something mildly interesting at least weekly. All the lovely ladies whose blogs I read post almost daily and make it seem so easy.  Props to all of you who entertain, educate and/or just make me feel like I have a room full of friends!  

Today I’m sharing my excuses – only the best ones of course. First, I did my public debut of French Hollow at a lovely charity shopping bazaar. It was held at a Church in Lake St. Louis near my house and was to benefit Oasis Food Bank. It was their first and was not as well attended as they had hoped but I met some wonderful ladies and got lots of compliments on my new booth and holiday items. I also found out that the Square works REALLY well for accepting credit cards. I highly recommend it.


I’ve also been working on some requests for custom items like these pincushions for a beautiful lady I know who is giving them as stocking stuffers. She was sweet enough to trust me with a cup and saucer that was a family heirloom. It’s the gray one pictured. I attempted to duplicate  the saucer pattern for the cushion. I hope she likes it!

 Thanks so much for stopping by and for your support – even when I don’t deserve it!
