A new year

christmas wishWe were discussing today’s Winter Solstice and wondering if we should write our disappointments from the closing year down on paper, and burn them, sending the ashes of our despair drifting into the wind.  We both thought for a moment and in one voice said.  :Ya know. this has been a darn good year!”

For you all we wish happiness and joy to you and your families for Christmas, and our coming New Year.  We wish for you love and prosperity, health and safety.

We wish you many blessings

With Love

From J.T. and Tilly


We have quite a bit to be thankful for here at Lost Creek. 

We have our new home, nearly settled after a lot of time spent moving.  Shop is back in work, bags and leather goods are being made once again. Christmas orders are coming in.

We have our family, who we love.  Since we have moved here Tilly’s family have visited many times, ready to explore our great backwoods, the grandboys, Michael and Andrew,  are running wild in the prairie. 

We are greatly anticipating a visit from J.T.s wonderful twin grandkids, Drew and Bree.  We can picture them playing in the fields!

Our fantastic black lab, Parker, is another thankful member of our family, he runs as wild as the boys, reveling in the fresh air and great smells.

We have health, happiness, enough money to live, enough love to make any rough patches smooth.

We are thankful.
