Sparkles On My Face

Aren't these light up snowmen the cutest?!Last night, all the staff and I left the shop past 10pm, and went home with sparkles on our faces.....and in our hair, and all over our clothes!
Even after showering before bed, I still woke up with sparkles on my face!

A Little Mouse Told Me......

Aren't these little Fall Mice cute!?
A perfect little sitter for your computer!
Or your windowsill!
Brighten a co-workers desk with these happy little mice!
If my mouse could talk, it would say..." Dust off that laptop screen!"
To which I would reply..."What? I can still see it...besides, I am having too much fun decorating for fall to bother with that!"

Our Columbus Day Weekend hours are 10 to 5 everyday, including Monday!
Stop in for some hot cider made with our gold package of instant mulling spices! All you do is add apple juice (no need for expensive cider), cranberry juice, or even wine......just heat and enjoy!

I Finally Got The Hint........

So, I think it was the tenth customer in about a year
that has asked us if we sold these woven tablecloths......

Sometimes it takes me awhile to get with the groove......LOL

We now have the Homespun Woven Tablecloths!!!

Available in lots of colors and sizes...just in time for all those holiday gatherings!
Special sizes are also available to order!
Please allow for up to 10% shrinkage, when in doubt, order the next size up!
They are machine washable, reversible, 100% cotton, line dry.
Never needs ironing!
Although they say you may dry them on low in the dryer, however, shrinkage will be higher.

Fall is in the air!

Also in are some great reversible woven wraps for over your shoulders,
lots of other boutique clothing,
including denim coats, tummy tuck jeans, "Peace" shirts, and cozy sweaters!

Leaves are changing in our neck of the woods quickly......
Here is a photo I took around this time last year....

Natures' repeat performance will be happening within the next two weeks!
Come for a visit!
