Christmas Bazaar

Perhaps you've already finished up your Christmas shopping.  Me?  Not so much.  Yikes!  
We've got Thanksgiving coming up and then Christmas.  How is it that the older I get the faster time flies?  Oh my!  Anyway, here's a way to help the Siloam Springs Museum and find some fun and unique gifts for those on your to-buy-for list.
On Saturday, December 1 make plans to attend the 2nd Annual Country Christmas Arts & Crafts Bazaar at Community Fellowship Church located at 525 South Lincoln in Siloam Springs.  The event is an annual fundraiser for the Siloam Springs Heritage Festival hosted by the Siloam Spring Museum.  It features traditional arts and crafts, home baked goods, musical entertainment, hot soup and chili and drinks.

Christmas Ornaments

Did you have a nice time at the Holiday Open House this weekend? It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon just perfect for kicking off the holiday season. 

At my family's Thanksgiving celebration we enjoy a yummy dinner and then take some time to pass out a few new Christmas ornaments.  If  you're looking for something original and fun to put on your tree this year, consider the latest ornament in the Downtown collection.

This year's ornament is a celebration of the historical Crain Motor Company building, now the home of 28 Springs Restaurant.  You can find these for $15 each at the Main Street office or at Downtown retailers.

My favorites are the traditional reds and greens.  :-)

 Fall is my favorite time of year.
I love watching the leaves turn from green to beautiful shades of yellows, oranges, and reds.
There are some great trees Downtown.
Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the beauty!

Things have been crazy around my house lately. 
Between lots of overnight guests and painting projects, the only reason I've been Downtown is to grab Fratelli's to go!
Yummy, fresh, hot pizza is the perfect dinner on nights where the cook is overwhelmed!
What are your favorite pizza toppings?
