Thanksgiving & BHM Winners...

2010 exceeded every expectation we could have imagined!  We are so honored, thankful and humbled -- our journey has been full of surprises, friendship, generosity and L-O-V-E...




We are very blessed to have true friends...


You know, those friends that will laugh hysterically in the background when you are trying to be serious modeling with the skinniest Thanksgiving Turkey EVER...next to the chubbiest Jermonne ever.  Needless to say, the holiday season has been good to me (jer-)...


After five years of "farm life," we FINALLY ate our first home grown turkey.  This story needs a post of its own, no doubt!  Cry Baby Jermonne was not able to participate in the "Turkey Harvesting," but I was able to awkwardly pose with one of my cooked skinny wild turkeys.  There are SOOO many things wrong with this picture! AND,  it's really ok for you to laugh at the Hot Mess above. Joe, Cindy, Barry and Kylee sure got a good chuckle out of it all.  (look at them all laughing at me...I am even laughing at me.)


OK...enough about our Thanksgiving Celebration with The Tarte People...

The Boys are finally caught up on shipping out all of the orders from our RE-opening earlier in the week...AND...

We have Barn House Marketplace winners to announce...

$100 Grand Prize #1 - Melaine of My Sweet Savannah (and her ETSY shop here)

$100 Grand Prize #2 - Dawn C. from Once Upon A Farm

$50 2nd Prize - Kim from White Whispers 2 U

$25 3rd and 4th Prizes - Garrett and Ms. T. Gaudette6.

You are not a "hot mess", you sweet boy! You are truly country folk now that you've harvested your own turkey..is that what they're calling it these days?

So nice to see you and the Tarte crew making holiday memories. Love it and love you two!
