WOW!! What a beautiful weekend we had here in Pennsylvania..."perfect"...is the best description! You never know WHO will come shopping when the weather is ..."perfect"....thankfully it brought lots of shoppers anxious to find Halloween goodies! We were VERY happy to oblige!! The next couple days will be busy getting ready for the ROCK-PAPER-SCISSORS class - cleaning the store - restocking the best I can (we got the neatest little witch's shoes in today from Vicki) and then making the decorations (oh-la-la) for the Witches Nite Out !! What fun this is turning out to be!!!!!
Don't you LOVE our scarecrow on the outhouse door....!! He was made by Janet Burzenski, a well known folkartist from Massachusetts. Janet use to visit our store when we were in Morgantown, PA and had made a scarecrow like this for the Bed & Breakfast they use to stay at....I coveted it!! One year the B & B had ordered another one and she called and asked if I would like to have one too....WELL HECK YES!! He started out with a black burlap dress - after spending the last 14 years each fall, outside in the weather (and although alittle faded) he is holding up just perfectly. I lost contact with Janet when we moved to Hereford but do know that she licensed Primitives by Kathy and others to sell her folkart. Maybe one day she will happen upon my little store or blog and recognize this sweet fellow!!! (he has gourds in his pocket now and sometimes I find a surprise there...must be from Alexandria Puddlewick)
