It was a busy day in the store and I almost didn't get the pumpkins in the basket to photograph.....!!! I do have a few more finished and scattered thruout.....but not enough to fill those baskets to the brim....so I will keep stuffing and stuffing...!!
It feels like fall here tonight.....hope next week for Open House it is nice and cool.....the leaves from some trees....(mostly black walnut)...are falling and make it seem more like Autumn. Some are even starting to turn! And some, like the hibicus in my neighbors yard, are still flowering. It has been a strange summer weatherwise....I am hoping for a nice l - o - n - g fall season!
Today, candles that I ordered called "Sugared Pumpkin" (from Scentsational Scents in Ohio) arrived....I burned a small votive and both floors of the store smelled so wonderful. This is a must have scent for the fall!
There is still lots to do before next Wednesday when we celebrate our Harvest Thyme Open House and the official start of the fall season at THE CINNAMON STICK.....slowly I am getting things done. I am really anxious to see all the wonderful treasures the gals that make things for the store bring in.....all of them are working to the very last minute and most will come this weekend and on Monday and Tuesday while I am cleaning and setting (what I am "hiding") up!!! I will take pictures and show off all their great creations.....
After all these years, I am still like a little kid at Christmas waiting for the treasures to arrive....I do have the best job in the world...always getting presents that, even though I only own them for alittle while...I still get to enjoy them! (and play with them) !!!
Better start stuffing to fill that empty basket......soon the day will be done!
