Merry Christmas

Are you all ready for Christmas yet? It is very cold here in California and we are going to get 13 feet on snow in the mountains today.

It seems that the year has gone so quickly, a new year will be here soon. I wish all of my blog followers a Merry Christmas and a healthy Happy New Year. Thank you all for your emails and comments of encouragement this past year. It has been my pleasure to meet so many of you in person. A thank you to all of my loyal customers for shopping at The Pea. May God Bless all of you and your family always.

I will be painting the walls in the livery stable next week. It should be completely finished by the end of January. Jim will be making a few work stations. We are going to make them like (saddle up stalls). Our last big project!

I just think these chairs are so cute! The backs of them are so unique. There was a set of six. I priced them individually and only have the Captain chair left. Mix and match is popular now and that is a good thing.

My new cute Garden Table. It has a wonderful natural patina and the colors are so cheery. The hand painted flowers and the green edging with its worn wear look great! This is one table I tried to make room for at home......but no, its for sale!

Have a great weekend. sandi

My Purex Red Wing Jug

One of my favorite pieces of pottery. This man just had to have the jug for himself.
He is a Red Wing collector and spotted it down stairs. After looking at it up close he begged and begged until I said I would sell it to him. He was so happy to take it home with him. I found it 20 years ago and enjoyed it very much. It was in perfect condition. For years the farmer that I bought the jug from, stored home made wine in it. He was an Italian man that enjoyed his wine. I didn't even know the value of the jug when I bought it or that Red Wing was collectible.
