Good morning prim gals. Well, more snow showed up here in Michigan yesterday! We had rain for most of the morning and then, here it came again, more snow! I could hardly believe my eyes, but this HAS to be close to the end of it.
Business was really slow yesterday, but Terry brought more goodies! We now have pantry cakes, 2 more extreme prim black doll heads on a spring, quilted table runners and more. Just love her work and it is such a great addition to the shop. I'll be posting more pictures this week. (Please send kind thoughts to Terry and her daughter today, they meet with Shay's new doctor.)
After I closed the shop, our family gathered for dinner at a new restaurant for Chad and Kim's birthday (finally). Kim's folks, my parents, and my daughter Ashley's family all came to celebrate. We had lots of fun and great conversation. Kim's mom, Sharon, helps me out at the shop and I've really missed her. She recently had both knees replaced and is now on the mend. Can't wait until she can come back and she is hopefully going to teach some classes soon.
We're trying to get our new spring lineup of classes posted soon. We are now offering private group classes too. This should be a fun spring at Holly Hills. Our Kim is going to do some herb and gardening classes along with our usuals. Her gardens are amazing!
Dick and I are going to take a drive up north this afternoon and our friends Debbie and Kenny have a load of goodies they are sending home with us. It's always a surprise to see what great finds she has for the shop. I'm so darned excited to see the cupboards Kenny has been building for us, he is using old vintage doors and windows and his work is wonderful!
Well girls, better get some work done before hubby gets home to pick me up. Have a great Monday and we'll talk again tomorrow...
