What a fun couple days this has been at the store. I have met some new gals who visit The Spicecupboard and really do READ my silliness!! First on Friday, Marissa visited! (whose sister found our blog and emailed me to say her sister lived close and would visit).....Marissa and I had a fun time gabbing and hopefully Marissa had a fun time shopping too....thank you Donna of http://www.elmhollowprimitives.blogspot.com/ for sending your sweet sister !! Linda Stinson, from Lancanster and the Prim and Rustic Forum, paid us a visit too.....what fun she was - we swapped some "stories" and talked of creating for the New Year - she is already working on Easter....even has a "PLAN" !! Good Luck with that Linda!!!!
Olde friends, Lisa and Dave from "Homethrown Pottery" ( http://www.potsnprims.blogspot.com/ )in North Carolina came yesterday and we had a nice long visit. Lisa is very talented and has her "hands" in just about everything from antiques to pottery to candle making....and more and more!! I love meeting and sharing stories and ideas with fellow shopkeepers. Lisa and Dave are lots of fun and I must visit their store one day....a trip to North Carolina would be fun!
Today is the last day of our "Merrie Discount" on Christmas items for the store and I am anxious to get it all put away and start with Valentine's Day.....I have been working on hearts of all sizes, shapes and fabrics.....Valentine's Day is very special in my heart - I think everyone should make a "BIG" deal of telling family and friends how much they mean to you....!!!! Be sure to visit our Holiday Blog to see what we will have for sale!!!
AND I don't forget George and Abe.....we will celebrate their birthdays too!!
Have a nice Sunday - it is raining here in PA but the temperature is "springlike" - only for a day....My Johnny-Jump-Ups are going to be so confused !!!
