A Red Truck Christmas

I know - most of us have not even gotten our Thanksgiving turkey and here I am posting Christmas
pics. That is the part of retail I don't like but...make alot of Thanksgiving memories!
So Monticello open their Christmas show today. Sara and I spent the entire day yesterday doing this display.

It is a red truck Christmas! From rugs to glass ornaments. Red trucks are everywhere.

Sara cut the real nobles high up in the mountains where they grow wild. They smell wonderful.

Sara has painted two signs for this display. Both are done on metal and would be perfect over
your mantle or on your covered front porch. She also knit all the little red stockings!  She made 25 of them into a hanging advent swag. You can see it in the first picture! Amazing.

One of my favorite artists. Mary Lake Thomson, filled our primitive cupboard with towels, mugs,
plates, soap and tea. The vintage rocking horse has a real horsehair tail. Great sitting next to your own Christmas tree.

A vintage fire engine pedal car that still has its bell!

A vintage old car grill full of red lights. So come on in for the show - lots of amazing booths out
back. You can look for hours. Restocked daily so come often.

Celebrating a day for us all to be thankful! Gather with your family and friends and make some traditions and memories.

A new display went into our space at Monticello today. I had a new helper - Sierra, my daughter in law. She worked hard and we got it done. It was a pleasure to work with her. She has an Etsy shop and sell some fun mugs, ornaments, gift bags and water bottles. They can be personalized! Go check her out at  Shop local and she will personalize it for you. Thanks Sierra. Lunch was fun too...

Old photos and fun mail boxes.

So have a wonderful Thanksgiving. The next display will be in for the Opening day of The Monticello Christmas Show that opens on Friday, November 18. See you there!
