...how FAST these days are going...Cathie (sweet friend) reminded me this morning (XO) that I had not written on my blog since (OMG) Thursday!! I swear I don't know where time hides - it appears - and then "whooooosh" it is gone. In the past 9 days we have celebrated "3" grandchildren's birthdays...2 - 10 year olds and 1 - 9 year old. Still have a "BIG" kid (son) to celebrate on the 27th !!
AND....I am working and shopping for Christmas. (sort of getting excited too!) Today Tony and I went shopping at the local wholesale houses. I have been fretting over a Christmas tree for the store....oh I have the little table top ones but I only put one main tree up. I am not fond of "fake" trees (real dead trees - yes!) but fake ones sort of just leave me "blah". I have tried - honest to goodness - to have a real tree in the store but they don't last...even the potted ones - so I broke down today (cause I can't fathom that twiggy, green fake one this year - maybe I will feel different next year but not this year...no way) and purchased a "fake" dead tree - with snow covered branches. It is not real big so it will not take up alot of space in our small room....and I am really excited about it as I have lots of "glittery and shiny" ornies to make it sparkle!
Our theme this year is MERRIMENT and I want to create that in all our displays..."Life is just a bowl of Merry" .
***FOR some special news.....this Friday the "paranormal" people are coming back to "do" their thing in the store. I am very anxious to see the results and hope the "gals" (we are pretty sure there are two) will give names - there is always something going on in the store...subtle happenings...I am quite sure they like when we are open and there is alot of activity going on.
I am off to the store in the morning (even though we are closed) as the two seater desk sold and I have some furniture to move around to fill up that space...(gosh it looked so good in front of the mantel)...Enjoy it Mary Kate!!!
