Christmas Open House at the Woolen Willow and Painted Cupboard!

Here are some pictures of the shop on Saturday for our open house!
This is Janice decorating Gretchen! We sure had the shop in a mess trying to get decorations up for Saturday! We stayed late two nights in a row!
This is Gretchen being a Christmas tree! LOL!

  1. Everything looks fantastic! Wish I lived close by :o(

  2. Wish I could have been there. everything looked fabulous.. Wonderful decor.

  3. I wish I lived closer! I just visited during a retreat this past october and loved the shop! Everyone was extremely helpful and I was able to find all the fabric I needed for a quilt!Also Gretchen was so generous and treated us to some lovely needlekeeper kits!

  4. Thanks Colleen, Maggie, and Gabriela for the wonderful comments on the shop! I wish you all lived closer too! It was a fun day, after all the work getting ready for it! Too many cookies though! Yikes! Thanks again for commenting! When I get my act together, I will have a give-a-way on the blog of a hand-made item!

  5. I really need a road trip - the store looks so interestingly wonderful!!! I love all your primitive displays...Judy

  6. Judy, Thanks so much! I don't know how far Hereford is, but come on down! I checked out your blog and it is wonderful! What a beautiful shop! I would love to make that wool feather tree and have the class at our shop too! I have a lady who has a shop in Hereford that buys our rughooking kits wholesale! Her shop is called Homespun. Do you know of it? Thanks again! Jeni

  7. Jeni...thanks for your sweet words...Hereford is "alittle" out of the way (big smile) however, Homespun is attached to our store. Our part of the building was originally the storekeepers quarter and they operated the Hereford Country Store and Post Office - (very unique - shelving and counters are still there from 1860)where Homespun is located. I love hooked items.....absolutely love wool....but do not enjoy hooking :( I purchase it!!! :)
    The Wool Feather Tree is unique - maybe Joanne will do a "road trip" with me...woohoo!!!! Sounds like a plan!!! Judy

  8. Judy! You're welcome! Do come on down for a road trip and bring Joanne with you! I would love to make that tree! Let's set up a workshop!! Kind of late notice, but would be so fun! I showed all the gals at Open Craft night last night your pictures on your blog! They loved your shop and the tree!
