A busy Holiday season

Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile but with the Holiday season I was really busy. Had company, and worked on by booth at Cotton Depot. Had a wonderful month at the Cotton Depot in Monroe. Today I want to share a song written by my two nieces while they were at my house for a Christmas party. Now remember I have 4 Shih Tzu and a Great Dane puppy. So enjoy.
Its Called Lexi the Hyper Puppy ( goes by Rudolph song)

You know Maggie and Hogan and Zoe and Scooter, but do you recall the most biggest puppy of all...Lexi the hyper puppy
Puppy had a wagish tail, and if you ever saw it, saw it , saw it
You would even say it wags.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Becky came to say.
Lexi with your wagging tail. You look like a happy dog, why don't you sleep with me tonight.
Then how the puppy loved her as she shouted out with barks (woof)
Lexi the hyper puppy You'll go down in history.

What a Great gift that was this Christmas!

Christmas is here at The Cotton Depot

The Cotton Depot
I am very proud to say that this is where my booth is in Monroe along with many other talented dealers. I have a treat for you on this day. I have taken some pictures of the shop. You will see some of the beautiful things we have for you this holiday season. As you can see the shop from the outside is very inviting and decorated for the Christmas season. There is plenty of parking. When you walk into The Cotton Depot you will be greeted by the wonderful lady that put this shop together. This is Margaret. She has made this shop a warm and friendly place to shop. When you visit you will see all the hard work and love she has put into this place. It is a very happy place to be a part of. Enjoy the pictures and please come visit. For the Christmas Holidays we will be open late on Thursdays and Fridays till 8 pm. The town of Monroe will celebrate also with late night shopping and dining. If you want a little more of the Christmas joy you can have a horse and carriage ride on the Christmas lit streets of down town Monroe. We will also be open on Sundays for the first 3 weeks of December. Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving and we will be looking forward to your visit to our wonderful Shop.

This is my booth with my love for snowmen. There is a lot of scarves to warm you neck. There are painted jean jackets and Holiday bags made from old wool coats. Check out the painted windows. The windows are a great touch for the inside of your home. Put one on the mantel. You can even hang them outside on the front porch. They will make you smile this holiday season and welcome your guests.


Snowmen, Angels, Reindeer, and Decorated Trees!!

Don't you just love the Mickey and Minnie print. What would Christmas be without them?
If you need a cute little ornament for a Hostess gift or just another one for your tree come visit us at Cotton Depot. We have everything you can think of. We are celebrating the holidays big time.
Have you ever seen a nativity set as sweet as this one?

Some wonderful vintage Christmas items in some of the booths at Cotton Depot.

Me and Santa

Christmas is just around the corner and I have made my list. Santa will be checking it twice. He said that I have been a very good girl this year.
(Little does he know)LOL!
Friday night my good buddy Pam and I went to the Christmas Open House at Antiques in Old Town in Liburn. It was wonderful as always. Rowan and Hugh always welcome their guests with open arms. The Shop was decorated with such a creative touch. There are such wonderful dealers with great talent. The goodies and cider was a warm welcome to the chill of the night. What was very exciting for me was to see a lot of my wonderful friends I haven't seen in awhile. Pam and I walked in the door after Rowan greeted us and didn't get very far when we ran into a wonderful old friend of mine Sally. Her booth is one of the most beautiful booths I have ever seen. She is a dealer I look up to. This girl has a lot of talent. I think Pam and I took 2 steps and we ran into Karen (Fox) and Lynn (LEW). They are both very special friends of mine also. Lynn's friend Laurie was along for the great fun too. She is a talented girl that should have her own store. Another step and I saw Jeanine (TLW) a long time friend and a special friend. If you have ever been at this shop you know that the front door isn't far from the counter. It took Pam and I about ten minutes just to get to the counter. Well, at the counter Pam finally left me because I kept running into more friends. I saw Cheryl who has the first booth on the right when you walk. We never even got to look at anything in her booth. Then there was Robyn. I hadn't seen her in so long. She looks great. Man this was crazy. I turned around and Susan (MVH) was standing there. It was so wonderful to see such good friends at one time. What a great girls night out. Well I finally caught up to Pam on the bottom level. We were hungry and went straight for the cookies and cider. It started all over again. The was Shirley, Janet with her granddaughter, Mary (MAE), and Kris (KL). Man I love seeing them. I hope I didn't leave anyone out that I saw. These girls are all wonderful dealers and I cherish their friendship. So needless to say Pam and I didn't get much shopping done. We then went accross the street to the cute little shop where I sat on Santa's lap and gave him my list of wishes. It was a very festive evening and fun with my buddy Pam. We always have alot of laughs when we are together.

Puppies sharing a bed

These are the two Danes (brother and sister) Looks like brother (Dominic) is keeping Lexi warm or just wants to lay in the same bed. Puppies are so much fun but I hate the biting part. Anyways Lexi is learning tricks fast. She seems to be a smart girl. I can't wait to finish her shots so we can take her more places. She loves having Dominic over. She has already gotten taller in the 2 weeks we have had her. Dominic is going to be a bit bigger than she. You will be seeing more pictures as she grows.

My busy but fun Friday

Last night my friend Bonnie and I went to Queen of Hearts Antique store to visit my mermaid friend Dari. She has a wonderful Booth in a Great spot close to the front on the store. The store is in Buford, Ga. It is worth the drive. Thursday nights they serve goodies like wine and cheese while you shop. We really enjoyed ourselves and will go back very soon.
This morning I got up and decided that Zoe, my Shih Tzu and I were going to get my Dunkin Donuts coffee and then hit a few yard sales. Of course I passed a few but the coffee had to come first. My first stop I ran into some friends of mine who I use to work with ,Jeanine and Paul. It was really good to see them. This is perfect weather to yard sale. This one sale I came upon had Shih Tzu puppies for sale. Zoe was so cute with the little guy. He was black and white. Hey, that's the only color I don't have. No, I couldn't bring it home, if you remember one week ago we just got a new Great Dane puppy Lexi. I think 5 dogs is enough. I did buy a few things at that sale and then came home to work in the yard since it was so beautiful. It has been a busy day. I can't believe how much I did today. After working in the yard I gave all the dogs a bath and steamed all the floors with my new shark steamer I had told you about in one of my older posts. I even washed my kitchen windows. Man, where did all this energy come from. It feels good that everything is done and I can relax tonight and then have a fun day tomorrow.
