Our Kim made these window/planter boxes and I just love them!We also got two noodle boards, one natural and one black. They are such nice quality.
This was our food table before it started. (I "borrowed" Judy's chalkboard idea from The Spice Cupboard - thanks Judy.) My Ashley made all the food and it was delish! Everyone seemed to really enjoy it all - including me.
Aren't these little brownies adorable with the edible flowers? What a hit!
The highlight of the evening was when blogging buddy Terri (on the right) and Julie (on the left) came to shop. Debbie (another blogging buddy) came also, but she didn't want her picture taken! I just love these gals, they are so much fun.
Thank goodness the rain held off until this morning and everyone could be out in the streets and have fun. Ashley and Abbey came to help me and then Dick showed up to help too! My son-in-law Tony lent a good hand too, he did a lot of running and leg work. Our Kim was so excited to come and then she ended up with the flu, what a disappointment. Abbey loved the music outside. She did a little dancing and made a new friend to share her blanket with.
I couldn't believe how many women were out and about. The shop was packed most of the evening. I did notice that with Michigan's economy, most of the things we sold were smaller items. These times are so uncertain and so many people have lost their jobs. I'm just proud that our little village gave these women a chance to get out, have some fun, and do a little shopping.
Time to get back to it this morning. Terri brought some new things yesterday and I have a couple new dolls in the shop. I'll take pics today to share in my next post.
Most important, I hope all of you have a wonderful Mother's Day. Give yourselves a break, let the people that love you do a little pampering. Hug all of those children that made you a Mother and those little grandchildren that made you a Grandmother. Don't take this day for granted, there isn't anything more special than being a Mother.
Until a little later...
