Christmas decorations at the Country loft and almost catching up

  Hi Gals,I have been so very busy this month.We have been replacing our worn out wooden deck and putting new redwood steps in. Every weekend hubby has been working away at it. There is the yard mess of all the old wood and continually running back and forth to hardware stores.  I also have been busy gathering and cutting up branches for winter which I love to do. I even had little Jack helping me!
We then had to take a trip to buy some gold fish for the little guy.

                                                                      He loves fish





                                                                 Country Loft is decorated for Christmas
We had a Wedding Anniversary this month so forty years later were still working away on our old house.
I have been dying to get back to some wool projects but these house projects are taking up all our time.





 Little Jack calls his grandpa Jack Wreck it Ralph! I don't know about you but every time hubby works on something there is blood involved. I am overly cautious and hubby is the opposite. If there is a ladder involved I have to just leave the house.Lol!


I am wanting to sit down and read all my blogger friends what they have been doing this month.Hopefully tonight I can enjoy catching up!





Once in a while I have been on the face book rug hooking group called The Out of hand Rug hookers.
I actually won some wool that a fellow hooker donated. That was my highlight of the month.






                                                              I love the Country Loft




 Hubby is almost finishing up the steps! I am finally able to sit here and download some pictures.  I actually took these pictures at the Country Loft about two weeks ago but I just couldn't post them til Thanksgiving was over so enjoy and Ho Ho Ho!

Little Jack is getting so big and cuter every time you post a picture.

It is so much safer for that store to be down there. My goodness, just looking at your photos I would go crazy, what wonderful quilts, and wool and all of the Christmas decorations.
Congrats on your wedding anniversary! That is wonderful. I think it is great you are still working on your house. That has to be such hard work replacing that deck.
It was so nice getting caught up with you.

Hi Gals, the saw is going non stop . I have a fire in my wood burning stove and the little porch is almost done.
I am looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs! 85 year old houses are alot of work especially when they were built as a cabin. Hugs Cheri

Happy 40th Anniversary Cheri... A new porch will be so nice. 85 years old houses have character and the Loft looks so beautiful all decked out for Christmas. You took great photos. My goodness, little Jack is so handsome.
HUgs,

First of all, Little Jack is the most beautiful little guy EVER!
I think I want the Here Comes Santa Claus sign, the truck with the tree hanging sign, and some of those old fashioned looking trees. I have no idea where I'm going to put this stuff but I Love it!
I know EXACTLY how you feel about wanting to get stuff done but house projects taking away your time. I've been there for five years now. (and yep it's getting to me)
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
