Today I went Christmas in the Country in Hamburg, NY. This is the largest Craft festival I have ever been to. I have never seen so many artisan’s in one place. I went looking for 2 things in particular and I found both so I am a very happy woman today. 

I have been striving on completing the package for my Mother In Law’s birthday and believe that today I have achieved that. She loves light houses and I was able to find this breathtaking night light that I am certain she will adore.  


I also am always on the look out for hand crafted soaps. Today I discovered Bath & Bliss a company out of Grand Island, NY (my own backyard). I could not resist their Snow Angel ( chocolate and white musk) and also their Lavender. Lavender is amazing!! I am so excited to try them. This is the first time I will be trying an Olive Oil soap. In the past I have always gone the way of Goat’s Milk. 

The only think My Love was interested in was Hot Chocolate. I worried as I was told that they were not going to be there. I think I almost did the happy dance when I saw them. Before I knew it I was paying for White Hot Chocolate, Coconut Hot Chocolate and Almond Amaretto Cappuccino. We should be stocked for awhile…best part is I found that they have a website!!

Well my dinner guest have arrived and off to be a good hostess!!

It has finally happened that I am able to make it to a local Free- Sew. It happens tomorrow afternoon and I am excited. Totally not prepared….lol. About an hour ago I decided to change what I was going to be sewing tomorrow. I just love when I change my mind at the last moment 🙂  I will be working on Table Runners and Place mats. No biggie just means I have to cut the fabric and interfacing, prep the bobbins and pack the necessary notions. Thank goodness I have a checklist to refer to.

I will have to prepare in the morning as I am content sitting here on the couch sipping a glass of wine!

After the Free Sew I am meet some co-workers for a Girls Dinner at a local restaurant for Buffalo Wing Soup! Update Dinner company was great!!! Food not good in my opinion. Customer service not good. No future plan to go back to this restaurant. Took them to long to seat us. Actually had to give my name and party size twice. Buffalo Wing Soup was justst okay. As for the meal I ordered I sent it back to the kitchen as the order was wrong. I was then corned by an employee…she wanted to know why I sent my food back. I explained again why. Adding that now I just am no longer interested in eating. Another person at my table also did not get her meal as she ordered it. As we where leaving I heard another customer mention that they served her something she did not order. Sadly disappointed in this dinner experience.
