Cinnamon Pumpkin Patch Potpourri

 We have just created a new potpourri for Autumn 
 called Cinnamon Pumpkin Patch.
We mixed some bold fall colored
botanicals with our best-selling cinnamon sticks
 fragrance oil for a dynamic combination sure to
please. This potpourri can be paired with our
mulled cider, spice cranberry, and cinnamon stick
votive candles.

We always recommend a refresher oil with your
potpourri for long lasting fragrance.
You'll love our newest blend of potpourri for the
Autumn season.

Rustic Patio Lantern

I love Lanterns, antique ones as well as old
looking reproductions. These rustic lanterns
are so versatile, they are great for porch displays
in the spring and summer
as well as seasonal decorations for
the holidays.
(Add a few fresh
greens and you have a great centerpiece.)

Primtiive Stitchery

"I Believe" Stitchery

A few years back, I was having a very hard time
trying to decide what path the Lord wanted me to
take. I decided to go for a drive up to a lakeside town,
I stopped by a quaint shop and found this sampler/stitchery frame.
It spoke volumes to me that day, I am so grateful to be offering
this stitchery. I hope it offers you inspiration as well.
It measures approximately 13" in height and about 14 3/4" wide.
The frame is a primitive brown.
