Everything is coming up Christmas, at least around here. There are lots of retail holiday open houses, boutiques & artisan fairs to choose from this week. One of my faves is the Apron Chicks Barn Sale. Opening day was yesterday, with plenty of Christmas cheer in there! The wood-burning stove was stoked and hot cider and cookies were the treats. I especilaly liked the birds screenprinted onto linen (3rd photo, hanging on stair rail).
