Holiday Happening...

My daughter, Liana, and I are happy to be part of the upcoming first annual Holiday Happening with the wonderful Pies And Aprons and the Great Northern Railway's historic Jackson Street Roundhouse (a Minnesota Transportation Museum) in St. Paul, Minnesota!  There will be fun events for the whole family starting with the Holiday Market on Friday with vintage and upcycled items,  food gifts, organic and sustainable floral items, and pieces from local handmade artists!  There will also be food trucks, live music, and drinks, as well as train rides and photos with Santa!  

The weekend continues with more events added- a Saturday afternoon pie social and mini-workshops led by Pies and Aprons own Christine Hoffman, a talented designer, stylist, collector, and pie baker extraordinaire!  She has been featured in Country Living, MaryJanesFarm, Matthew Mead Holiday, and Where Women Cook!  You can click on the photo below for full event info, and info on the workshop sign-ups, too!

    about the pie socials,
    but have never been
    able to go. I'd love to
    win these tickets!!!

    like a winner, actually!

    Just catching up on
    your posts with a cup
    of tea, now. I'm SO looking
    forward to giving you a
    hug tomorrow : )

    Happy Thursday,
