Is it almost SPRING yet??

Here are a few of the new things I have been putting out the past several days!
Rabbits, chicks and flowers~OH MY!!

The battery operated tea lights are very popular! I have several new tealight holders for them like this little black metal one. I also have stars that hang from a chain I will have to photograph tomorrow...
Decorative plates continue to be a beautiful addition to my collection with heart warming sayings~great for gifts or for your own collection!
New prints from photographs are very beautiful. I had a difficult time choosing which ones to order at the showroom. I do have a catalog for you to look at if you are intrested in others like the outhouse w/ the wagon full of geraniums...(I can't wait for flowers!!!)
Tomorrow you will find Marlee behind the register because I am going to a little event with Kayla (my daughter) who is GOING TO HAVE A BABY!! (yes, that means I found out I am going to be a gramma...Oh My!)

Ahh Ahh Ahh A~CHOO!

A well-intentioned week turns south...
My dear husband...he gave me something.
Yes he did...sweet guy!
For two days he was sneezing and coughing around here...
and decided to share the love.
Right after he gave me that card and the Lindor Truffles!
What a Valentine!
So Wednesday, after washing all my bedding...
I crawled into bed and thought,
"my throat feels...funny."
Sure enough...Thursday morning~bam!
or should I say...
So my intentions to get the shop changed over
to spring yesterday
were replaced with lots of hot drinks,
and kleenex!
This morning I felt a bit better and was able to
get some of my new things out in the shop!
Just the little bit lifted my spirits!
Some tulips, some lavendar, some birds, some bunnies...
Have you started to decorate for Spring???
The snow is finally melting around here!
In the 30's~ah!
No more ice on my sidewalk!!

I will be posting pics of my new items over the weekend,
or the beginning of next week!

Not Moving

Well, the house is officially off the market. We had ZERO lookers...which made it rather easy on me never having to rush around and spiffy things up...on the down side, I never had to rush around and spiffy things up. Know what I mean? There are things (like in the basement) that would definately get done if someone was going to be browsing through there...I need me some motivation...

I am finding I like my computer. Alot. I try NOT to turn it on right away for I seem to get sidetracked too long chatting with people. I am really excited to be able to connect with my brother who just got his first computer. He is a dairy farmer with 5 children, so he hasn't had time...until he decided to get a computer "for the kids" *wink*! No, really he did want it for the kids, but it has been a blessing for him! He can be in the "loop" now.

With the shop open only two days a week, I always think I will have alot of time on my hands, but it never works that way. The calendar fills up. This week includes a visitation and a funeral. My daughter's new husband's grandma just went to be with the Lord. Then there is appointments, snow moving (though I haven't done that yet...) Phone calls, friends in need...

With Ethan in his senior year, we are moving on college, scholarship research, and having to get our tax info together asap. I am happy to report that we are almost ready!

This is a big year of  milestones for me...Kayla got married, I turned 45, Ethan is graduating, empty nest is on the horizon... and I got reading glasses...I think that means I crested "the hill". I hope the top is long and flat...*smiles*.

Thankfully Ethan is only going to be an hour away. I haven't told him yet, but visions of a weekly trip to take him out for coffee at Caribou is keeping me from the greiving I might otherwise be doing over the impending empty nest...(He wouldn't appreciate my wanting to do that until after he is moved I am keeping it a secret for now. lol)

I have new things continually coming into the shop, so I hope you will come and check it out. Candles are restocked. Valentine's weekend I will be having my anual "Red Candle Sale"...keep your eyes open for my next mailing for upcoming events!
