shades. These pieces have been well used, evidenced in the multiple chipping.

We are being over taken by these giants but actually they are birch wreaths that I had just unpacked. Two huge boxes that I was so hoping would arrive while I was out of town. I am sure Kathy was happy I got to deal with them instead of her. They are all priced and hung on walls now though.
It is good to be back in the shop since my trip to Pennsylvania. Always rewarding finding new things for the store but the challenge of winter weather is not so fun.

That time of the year to take off for market in Pennsylvania. I will be leaving Saturday morning meeting up with friends Jen and Sharon. We will be getting together and catching up on shop talk. We do have fun but also a very strenuous time being on a showroom floor for eight hours a day making choices for our stores. Albeit enjoyable it is WORK plus tiring.
Speaking of work Kathy will have boxes to unpack while I am gone. Four big boxes of Spring items just came in. I was thinking the doll in the picture would be me soaking my feet after shopping but Kathy may need to soak her muscles also after unpacking next week.

Whisk away the old and bring in the new. I am not sure where the last few weeks went since my last post but I know the holidays consumed a bunch of that time. I do hope it was good for everyone and now we are moving forward with a New Year.
We have been busy getting the store back to "normal". Trees were taken down and greenery removed, making for a tidier look. Now people are noticing there are pretty tables that were hidden beneath all the seasonal fluff.
Redo here and there since a sweet customer from Ft Hood came and bought quite a bit of our furniture. It is always fun to change things out.
Whisk away again when a previous candle grouping was bought from the table. Another challenge but I think this grouping came out almost as inviting. We are in the "tween time" when Christmas over and not quite ready for Spring to be in our homes. Although some of our Northern friends would welcome a bit of warmer weather.

Locally made candle tray with a pine garland surrounding a glass globe and a Jingle Bell candle. To further accent the grouping we added red berry picks and three red bells.
Also just arrived some of the hand made tin lighting that we all love.
This red lamp is from another equally talented tinsmith. Arnett's Santa and sheep tie in with the prints on the wall.
Black two piece cupboard also locally crafted. Santa's and snowmen fill the shelves. I especially like the snowman peeking out of the red stocking with his big candy cane.
