It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Hi everyone!!

Are you getting ready for the upcoming holidays?  Are you planning your Thanksgiving dinner?  Man..oh man... there is nothing better than smelling a turkey cooking in the oven!  I'm so hungry for one...along with the stuffing, mashed potatoes.... and all of the traditional food that each of our family members bring!  Heather (my daughter) makes the yummiest corn pudding casserole!!  Dayle (my daughter-in-law) makes macaroni and cheese that is to die for!  So.... you see... it's just NOT Thanksgiving without family and the yummy food and good times together!

Click the image below for the corn pudding recipe!  You must make it... it's fabulous!

PLUS..we had a complete switch over from FALL to CHRISTMAS at our Rusted- A Vintage Market room!!!  Oh my... it brought tears to my eyes... I was working on the floor (helping customers...and at the register) while Vicky and Heather were making their magic come alive!  The room is sssssssssssoooooooooooooo small that it's hard for so many of us to be in there together.
So while I was getting their trees fluffed and pricing our wonderful merchandise...they were wwwwayyyyyy in the back of the store.  Later on when I could get back there... I walked in the room and had to fight back the tears (sniffle).  It was simply breathtaking.... brought back memories of our store (Olde Green Cupboard) but on a MUCH SMALLER scale.

I hope that all of you in the Jacksonville area make it a point to shop with Rusted this holiday season... it's such a great shop!  We only have 12-14 vendors and we are such a family.  WONDERFUL men and women that are vendors with us and we're getting to know all of them more and more.  They have the love and passion for "pickin'", displaying, and enjoying vintage and antique life!

Good News!!! Santa Claus Christmas Mystery Blocks!

Happy Mystery Christmas Quilt to all of you!

If you have been following along, you know that we recently had our block debut for the Mystery Christmas Blog Hop!!!  Here's what you've seen so far!  




 See above... this is our block.  We were NOT able to offer kits for our block since we are not in the "wool" selling business... only USE wool ourselves.  However, Lisa Bongean, Primitive Gatherings has just contacted me and will be making block kits for you to order through her website:  Isn't that great?  We are so happy she is doing this for US and especially for YOU!

I'm not sure when they will be ready for purchase and delivery... however, I'm sure she will post the information on her blog also.  Her week is coming up and I do believe it will be posted under the "NEW" section !  Hop on over to her blog today and see what's happening in Wisconsin!

ALSO.. don't forget.... this week it's time for Joan Bits & Pieces by Joan

Have fun everyone!!!!  We can't wait to see all of your blocks and quilts finished!

Gloria, Heather & Vicky
