...that is what my mind did all night long ! I haven't come up with any super duper ideas for Christmas displays and time is getting very close to open house! Do I want a tree?? Do I NOT want a tree. I am different than some stores as I don't fill the store with lots of trees (no room). Whenever I visit a store at Christmas I LOVE all the trees they set up - it looks so festive - but that is just not THE CINNAMON STICK. I love tinsel....but tinsel on a FAKE tree is just not right - (my opinion only)! I have had real trees in the past but they seem to not quite make it past Thanksgiving and then I am sad :-( .... you do realize I am talking to myself as I type trying to figure this all out (big smile)!! I am in a primitive "glitzy" mode of thinking ! Sort of crazy huh?
I will keep "whirling and twirling" and hopefully the light bulb will go ON and I can get on with everything else !!! Be Merrie !!

I know what you mean about your mind twirling and whirling! You always have to be 10 steps ahead of each season. I plan on doing the "redo" the 1st and 2nd of November. Starting to come up with some ideas - finally. Have a great week, Dawn

Maybe you need one of your witches do a "whirl and twirl" spell for you! I'm 100% positive something wonderful will come out of all that thinking!

Hi there,
I have a cool suggestion to your tree dilema. We have a shop here in Minnesota that does this every year. She does not like fake trees, and cannot keep the real ones watered and happy for the season, so... she cuts large birch branches and "plants" them in sap buckets painted up prim in mustards, reds, and stencils things on them. Stars, fun sayings like "Believe" and "Ho, Ho, Ho". She hangs everything from handmade ornaments to garland. She does one all up in prim grungy stars and another one with all colonial/primitive pineapples and clove studded oranges tied with twine. It looks awesome! Just a thought for your dilema. I'm sure your shop will look magical no matter what you come up with! Take care!
