I am back from Tipton, Indiana, it is about a 3 1/2 hour drive and today was 71 degrees and sunny, so the drive was lovely. When I got to Tipton there was snow on the cars... it was perfect for the
I arrived on Thursday and met Donna at the Horton's store. We unloaded my merchandise and got to visit with the Horton family a little and then headed to Donna's house for dinner. Donna's husband had fixed his famous chili dinner, so we had a great time eating, laughing and catching up. Donna and I then worked on finishing up some projects we had going. I got to work on my stars in the cottage, listen to Christmas music, sip a little wine and laugh with miss Donna.
Friday we set off for the store bright and early, I had to set up and Donna had a million things to do, we left the store in time for dinner. That evening we were all tired so we went to bed early.
Saturday morning was the event... so without another word from me, I will show you
Miss Donna's magic.

Horton's Very Vintage Christmas Show
Donna's burlap Christmas stockings
Donna's burlap ruffled stockings
Donna's poured fig candles... heavenly
I had a good laugh... there was a designer at the show that stood in the middle of one of the rooms and said loud enough for everyone around him to hear,
"Someone said, one person did all this and there is no way one person did this!".
He just had never met Donna!
Not only does she do all of this, but she makes product too...
Donna made these cute pouches, knitted trees and yarn ball garlands
Even after all that wonderful display goodness this is a rare sight... Donna resting. She outdid herself this year! It was inspiration in every corner.
As always Tim and Karen Horton were wonderful hosts and it was a joy to be apart of their event... they put on quite a spectacular show. Thank you so much for letting me join in on all the fun.
I will be posting my little part of the Christmas show later in the week, I thought this was enough pictures for one post.
Now, I get to visit all of you for once! I am going to relax for today and then it is back to the studio for more Christmas goodies.
Wishing you a grateful day
