August has been a very "strange" month....
The bad - hurricanes and earthquakes
The good - BUSINESS HAS PICKED UP - the hot weather of July seems to have disappeared - and the excitement of our fall open house is "contagious" !!
I must say, although summer is so welcomed in May and June - it is a long time between open houses and I am so ready to "party" with everyone!!
Many really fun items have come into the store and I just love changing everything around and "finding" room for all the goodies. EIGHT days till open house...oh my!! Porches need to be decorated (they are painting the front porch this week) - treasures have to be priced and completed - our resident Cornball hasn't arrived yet - wonder where he is!!
I better get to work...so much to do !!! I'll leave you with some hooked mats that are in the store NOW!
