What, you want to buy those? day 3

Oh yeah I forget sometimes that it's there to sell.

Silly me only bought 6 of those fences.
I took this picture the night before we opened. I was so tired and really wanted to go straight to bed so I told myself I would only
be 5 minutes.
Well my camera was being's been off and on not wanting to auto focus so after hearing it make that sick noise for too long I finally tried
 manual focus, hence the sub par photo.

As you can see I do some cutesy too. 

I sold 3 fences this afternoon so before they are all gone I thought I'd show them. I have the others somewhere else.  
Out of all the things in here I don't know why I'm so taken by these. 
I know many of you have booths and shops.....are there things that you feel a little sad when they go?

I also had a great big angel in the middle of where some of my glass ornaments hang from. That went on the first day. 

I was happy but a little looked so good there surrounded by all the clear and sparkly bobbles. 

I know I'm crazy!

ok George is wondering why I'm not making up cedar
bundles:) and on the computer instead!

thank you for all the great comments.

I decided to put up a new you may have seen in a post before.
I actually have very few good snow scene photos....( except pumpkins with snow on them from our last storm)
I'll have to work on that this season.

Ok a bundling I go.........

You are fast, I like instant snow headers upon request being as I never get snow. I just told Joe we must flock and he said "Do what?" The fencing is adorable and does set the scene. Now that I sell items, in three stores, I know what you mean about letting go the the good stuff especially when you set up the display.

Love, love, love your new header Carole. Those red barns are SO America to me !
Photo #3 is a winter wonderland of magic. It's because you are so good at display that you sell it all !! I love the fences.....note to lots more next year !! haha
I think that you enjoy Christmas....just a little bit !! XXXX

HI Carole
I love love that new header shot.. I think you've shown us that barn way back.. and it's my favourite of your snow shots.. just beautiful

Those little fences are sweet.. the proverbial white picket!! Maybe people want the dream??,, I can imagine how beautiful your shop looks and yes it would be tough when your little family of xmas treats leave the nest.. I'd be wanting to keep everything..

Have a great day.. ciao ciao xxx Julie

LOVE your "New England" winter! I jut adore your winter vignette in the shop. as well..the fence is sweet. No wonder you can't keep it in stock! lol! dearest friend , Carolyn, stopped in? How ever did you start discussing "moi?" She is a sweet etsian and good friend. I am humbled by her praise. Happiest of Thanksgivings to you and yours Carole! I am "thankful" for the friendships i have found through ETSY and blogging.

LOVE the new header- jealous of CT.

Your sub par photos beat my best ones on a good day lol and the displays are beautiful. I am so anxious to see more. I know you are not taking requests but Cody Foster please, and a broad room shot and an exterior through the window and then maybe you could "spin" some Kenny Rankin for me. Haha I am too far away to smack.. :D

Karen said...

Those fences are darling, its no wonder you want to keep them. Your shop vignettes make me want Christmas decor at my house and I'm usually late getting everything up... not this year! said...

OOOH love your new header;) Those fences are so cute. When do you put up your tree. I'll bet it is gorgeous!

Just stumbled upon your blog and happily scrolled through the pages. Having lived in Salem, Bozrah and Norwich, it was great to see your photos of SE CT!! Now in VA will continue to follow your beautiful blog!

Joanne said...

What a beautiful photo. What is it about white picket fences that is so charming? And these ones, with the snow on them, just call out Home Sweet Home :)

Denise said...

So cute! I used to do the same thing. Order something and then wonder why I didn't get two dozen! And it does kinda stink when someone messes up your cute "play house." It's so much fun to create those perfect little vignettes.

Romeo said...

Whew! Almost a panic here....having stumbled in and seeing a barn!!! Thought purrhaps that I'd missed many days of mousing here, you know with the red barn and all....but I see I am not late and that indeed I have not lost too many days away. Yes, yes, love barns...need to do a post on this topic...still there is nothing so welcoming as a snow covered barn. Well and a mouse or two inside to chase.

Not as important to me, but certainly to "her" loving the vignettes and all the Christmas goodness. Flocking - oh yes, got that fever here too, but for some reason it is not as plentiful in the stores as in previous years. I guess they are behind the times ;) Like Z, we are anxious to see more pictures purrlease!!!! Those bundles can wait. I think that purrhaps maybe you would have to do them on the porch right? And I'm wondering if the porch is um....better now? George??! MOL Yep, I'm on your side - more pictures, yes, yes, yes!

Okay, gotta run before you charge me space rental for this post.....

Purrs and hugs

Romeo and "her"

blessedmom's simple home said...

Love your new header. I don't have a booth, but I know it's hard to part with certain items, and often I don't even know why :)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Boxwood Cottage said...

I guess that's why I can't have a shop, I would have serious problems letting go things that I love and things out of my displays and of course I'd be my best customer ha ha
So no, you're not crazy at all!
Love the fences too though!
Happy Tuesday Carole!
xoxo~ Carola

Your new header is beautiful, Carole. That't the way I like snow the best - on pictures, hahaha.
I'm not amazed that the fences sell so well. They are great! I also love the Santa, the white bottle brush trees and the glittered letters. Your customers are so lucky!
Happy Tuesday :-)!

Karen said...

I've gotta come visit your shop, you have so many wonderful things! I'll see if you recognize me :-)

trash talk said...

I have to constantly remind myself I'm not married to some of this stuff...but sometimes I wish I were!
The new header? The three P's...Picture Postcard Perfect!!!

Bead and Needle said...

I would buy those little fences, in a's all making me swoon!

Dorthe said...

Oh yes Carole, I would love to buy the beautiful fences,- AND all the rest :) love everything in your photo.
The new header looks cosy wintery, and the old red barn is so beautiful.
Hugs, Dorthe
