Hello there dear hearts..
Another Monday has rolled around so quickly.. It just seems as though it was last Monday and I was doing a post..
This day, though, I am not home but at our cottage..
I guess you could say we are here for the duration of the Summer..
It has certainly been sunny days since we came..
My Mom was telling me that it was very hot at home today..
It was just right here.. A nice breeze is usually blowing off of the Bay and it is so fresh and lovely...
I am working away at my shop..
Trying to get it all reorganized.. This morning I felt like perhaps I had bit off more than I could chew..(Isn't that a dumb saying) smile..
Anyway, I made quite a bit of headway so tonight I feel a bit better about it all..
I had my first biggish sale...
There was an old antique fainting couch, a parlor chair and footstool all refinished to match and it sold before I even opened..
That is great as now I have room for an old prim cupboard that we picked up over the Winter...
I will show you that later..
Here are a few quick pics that I took around the mess that I have going on there... grin...
I'm sorry the quality of pics aren't up to normal but I was in a hurry to get back here to the cottage..
I was tired, dirty and hungry.. grin..
Terry and I worked on the herb beds and I got my feet in the dirt..
Just like a kid..
The bubble bath felt wonderful and we had a nice supper..
Nothing fancy but Terry was in the mood for meat and potatoes..
The dishes are done and now I am chatting with you sweet ladies and having my lovely cup of tea...
And making my perpetual lists...
A few things I have to try and make before Thursday which I hope will be an unofficial opening day are...
1. old mason jars filled with potpourri
2. wrap my homemade soaps..
3. bottle up and tag some foot powders..
4.. make some thyme bath bags
5. homemade deodorants
6. fill some old containers with herb plants
7. do up a few teacup pincushions
8. paint a couple of old jars with stars and crows
9. finish a couple of dolls that are almost finished.
10.. tag and price everything..
Oh.. forget it.. smile..
I just need to get opened and work away at my list while I wait for you all to show up... grin...
Thanks for dropping by lovies..
And thank you Lord for giving me such a dear wee shop and lovely dear friends who come by when they can..
Oh, don't forget to let me know you were here..
Love love your notes..
Sweet sweet blessings sent to you all..
