It's Christmas eve and everything is quiet. The winds have died down and it's cozy by the fire with my Honey watching football with the cat on his lap.
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve morning service at Ashland Christian Fellowship with a 4 person bagpipe group doing their annual traditional Christmas fanfare, then the kds, then lots of carols, hugs and best wishes.
Lunch/dinner with friends and a sigh that the hectic Christmas shopping period is over for another year. We actually had a SUPER year and are very grateful for the wonderful notes we have received from our customers. Thank you!
Tomorrow we report for duty at the Historic Ashland Armory to help at the 16th annual Christmas dinner given by our church to the communiyt. It's free, all are welcome and we will be serving from noon to 4 PM. We usually serve 500-1,000. Last year we were with the kids in Salt Lake City but will enjoy helping this year.
As for Time Was Antiques we will be hard at work adding lots of new items. We recently acquired an estate collection of knife rests from England so we are adding those as well as lots of new teacups and saucers, linens, costume jewelry and lots of goodies!
Have a blessed day celebrating tomorrow.

NOW OPEN! Our new website, ANTIQUES AND TEACUPS, for exclusively tea table related items is now open for business at http://www.antiquesandteacups.com.
Come visit us! We have teacups, teapots, tea cozies, knife rests, and everything for the tea table, and adding more every minute!
Took a lot of work and I'm still tweaking the site, but it's coming along. Rather high learning curve at the moment....whew!
Now it's back to loading items while it snows outside at 30 degrees. I love seeing the snow UP THERE on Mount Ashland, although we have about an inch here at 1800 feet at the moment. Nice thing is, I can enjoy it but not have to shovel it because it's gonna melt soon!
Have a great day and come visit our new website.

It's almost over!!! What a day!!! Too much to chronicle, but...found out the spam ate some important emails, had an item arrive broken. THAT was incredible, only the 3rd in 8 years and it was a heavy stoneware pudding mold packed in bubble and a syrofoam container. What did they DO to it!!!
There was good news though. Kids & grandkids coming for Christmas and we found a pet friendly hotel here in Ashland that will be happy to take their 3 dogs. Awesome!
Other good news, our order of our favorite Ty-phoo English tea arrived. We've been having to drink american. Just not the same. Oh well.
Am now going to help a neighbor print out a boarding pass...hasn't ever done it before.
