The scents are softer.
The colors throughout the shop are soft and sweeter.

Upcoming Weekend Events

Hi All,

Hope you are enjoying a taste of Spring.  The weather has certainly put us in the spring spirit and refreshed our souls!

With that said, we are clearing out to make room for all of our fresh finds, carefully curated goodies and much more.

First up:
We will be OPEN today 11-4, and you can get a feel for the sale and see some new goodies. Then the full sale begins!

After the sale, we will fill the shoppe with loads of fresh goodness and welcome you back!
I'm so excited for Spring and to share our treasures with you.

We know you loved our Sunday hours during the holidays, so we will be open during this special event on March 6 from 12:00-4:00.

We look forward to seeing you!

A Shoppe Restyle

Hi Friends!

I'm still fighting with my computer (it's winning) but wanted to give a quick update.

In the shoppe, you'll find light and soft colors as we welcome Spring.

We are loving cotton stems, burlap flowers and sweet nests, despite the snow outside.

Our latest addition of soap & bath wash has been a hit.  The scents are fantastic!

I hope you'll pop in to see all our new treasures.

Fresh Finds

I believe the post-holiday reprieve is over!

Not sure if it's a clinical term, but after the holidays and a relaxing vacation, I struggled getting back in my shoppe groove.

We were rocking during the holidays and January is a much different pace.  I just wanted to sit by the fire and read, under a cozy blanket.

That does not make for a strong business plan.

So, I went shopping.

I enjoyed the creative energy from other shop keepers.

I brought in fresh goodies to the shoppe.
Reordered my favorite cow canvases and rearranged the shoppe.

My effort of sourcing fresh treasures has paid off, as the UPS man and I have bonded lately.

Wonderful soaps and body washes will debut this week.  They smell delicious!

Handmade jewelry, similar to Bourbon & Bowties will also make an appearance.
I get complements every time I wear mine.  I love them!

We have restocked our popular stamped jewelry in time for Valentines Day.

In addition to the sampling of fresh finds, I have started to sprinkle spring in the shoppe.  Very subtle touches.

I'll be back tomorrow with more fresh finds!

A Weekend to Celebrate

Happy Monday!

How is it February?  Usually I wonder how it became Monday so quickly, but another month?

My baby turned 14 yesterday.  She's taller than me, but still my baby.
She's a smart, sensitive gal who likes to celebrate herself.  So that's what we did.

All weekend...

Friday night 16 of us went to Dicks Last Resort.  This rude restaurant proved to be quite comical.  Thankfully they kept the comedy age appropriate. Whew!

Throughout the evening they place a hat on each person.
Our family sporting our hats with pride.

Some were spot on: My mom is my ATM. 

The best hat went to my sweet mother in law:

Titanic Survivor

The festivities were followed by a sleepover without much sleep, soccer, a family celebration, shopping and a lovely dinner.

It was a wonderful weekend and I may take today to recover and catch up on real life.

You only turn 14 once!

Back to reality today!

Enjoy the start of February!

Building A Bed

Hi Friends,
It's been a while since I popped in.  Not by choice, computer issues that are above my pay grade to resolve.

So today I reach out via phone.  That limits my ability to edit, size and make photos look good.  

With limitations, I will share some in progress pictures.

Our youngest has a birthday this week. She shared a photo of a bed she liked and thought Hubby could whip up. This exchange was on Thursday.

Here is progress on Sunday:

Hubby is killing it!

Cabinets are being used as the base.  Thus creating much needed storage.

A few hours later...

She even gets a hideaway for storage or playing hide and seek.  I have to laugh because she's 14 and hasn't played in several years, but it would be a great hiding spot.

She was able to sleep in her little cove last night.

As you can see, it's in progress.  Hubby had to resume real life demands, so will return when able.

Paint will happen.

Curtains, lighting, shelves and bedding will come next.

Not only are my photos poor due to the phone, but we moved her furniture in front of the windows, so the lighting is awful. My apologies.

I hope you are warm and productive on this Monday!
