Holiday Extravaganza

I have an etsy shop that I sell handmade to order children's clothes and gifts!
Please check out some of my specialties!
 Check out my holiday best seller!
 That's right~ personalized pillowcases
 They can be done in any colors that you choose
and at $18 each, they have been FLYING out of the shop!
 People are loving this for nieces, nephews, and even for their own little ones!
 This is a new version of the santa longall in lime green~ I am loving it. I will definitely be making it for my own son (if I can find the time...cobblers children syndrome).
 The truck carrying the tree has definitely been the top seller for the boys....loved doing this one for three brothers!
This has been a close second!
This one has been so popular that I have sold it OUT! No more fabric and it has been discontinued. I just had to is for three sisters all with the same monogram!
 Brother and sister set anyone?
 LOVE this fun polka dot! The corduroy initial gives me an "elf" vibe- LOVE IT!
 This red corduroy dress is fantastic for Christmas and will also be beautiful for Valentines Day. I do so love it when these outfits can do double duty!
 This is another popular gift! GIANT FANCY MONOGRAM t shirts!
 they can be done in all colors!
 I can make ruffle pants to match if needed!
 Have a little one in your life this holiday season? This super soft infant gown is a sweet idea!
Just like the pillowcases and giant fancy monograms the letters are all hand drawn, cut and heat bonded and then stitched for reinforcement and cuteness!
Thanks for visting my shop!
You can find The Pickle Tree at

Favorite Side Dish- Company Mashed Potatoes

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to link up to Kelly's Korner, SUYL, Favorite Side Dishes. I received a recipe years ago for something called Company Mashed Potatoes. I have not pulled out the recipe since, but the yummy ingredients have lingered on in my holiday mashed potatos. They are delicious any day, but so fattening...I definitely consider them a treat! It is simple!
Boil, cut up and mash potatoes. Peel 'em or not...your preference. I ususally use a hand mixer. Add 8 oz of cream cheese, and 8 oz of sour cream and about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Here is the best part. Put them in the fridge overnight....I love a good side that I can make the day before. Pop them in the oven about 30-45 minutes before you serve( ummm...let's say 350)  and - WAH-LAH! YUMMY! Sorry for the lack of specifics. I have found in my old age that I cook like I always hated my memaw doing ( oh, just a handful of this or that. no recipe!!! It made me crazy).
So anyway- I know I am gonna enjoy checking out all of the recipes at Kelly's Korner today...hope you do too!
Oh...and if you are looking for something cute for your kiddos to wear for the holidays, check me out at
Sorry- only Christmas stuff now, I am past the deadline for Thanksgiving!!!

Let's Hear it for the Boys!

 For Tigers, and Spidermans, and little boys of all kinds...

now that Halloween is over, it officially time to start the Christmas Season at the Pickle Tree!

We are having a great Fall around here, and I hate to rush the season, BUT....

this momma is closing up shop on November get your orders in NOW!
With a 2-3 week turnaround, don't wait until the last minute if you have an event early in December.

Our Santa pictures are December 8th and I know we cannot be the only ones starting early!
 It seems that I have gone and become a regular boys clothes specialist!
I mean, I still have some girls stuff OF COURSE!

But after all of the years of shopping in the tiny little boys section, I feel good to be doing this
"boy mom" service of offering cute boystuff!

Need a brother sister set? This one is adorable! Quantities are limited on this dot fabric so order fast!

I can't wait to see it on my sweet little nieces!

LOVE this for a more mature, dressy look- would look awesome paired with brother in a red corduroy longall with a lime diamond monogram. Just ask!
Coming corduroy peasant style dress with white monogram...
(that will take your through Valentines Day, folks...wink wink)
