So, a couple of weeks ago I had this hair brained idea. Our guest cottage became open unexpectedly, leaving us with just a few weeks before the arrival of our Christmas visitors. Not being one to waste a good opportunity I asked Mr. OTN if we (my friend Linda and I) could host an Old Things New Holiday Cottage Open House (wow, that’s a mouthful) and sell some of the things we’ve been working on. Knowing that this would mean a bit of craziness around our house he gave us the go ahead (love him!) and we started working on getting it together this week. Actually, we started getting it together just yesterday as we were busy with another bazaar last weekend. I’ll give you all the details at the end of the post but for now, here are some of the items we’ll be selling:
Finally, I’m selling some of my Patti’s Perfect Paint Powder that can be mixed with any latex paint to create a homemade chalk paint. After testing many home made chalk paint recipes this is the one I find to be superior. I’ve packaged some up some to sell locally and, who knows, maybe I’ll find a market it for it on my blog as well. I’ll be demonstrating how it works while I sell!
So, here are all the details. Our Old Things New Holiday Cottage Open House (that is STILL a mouthful) will be held this Friday and Saturday from 9-3. I would love for you to come on by if you are in the area. Along with our own handcrafted items we have a couple of friends who’ve contributed to our “store”. Our cottage by the lake is THE place to be on Black Friday (and Saturday). We’d love for you to come have a cup of hot chocolate and stick around awhile for a little visit.
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving,
