Yes, it's almost here. Ladies Night Out! What a busy day it was today! I went to pick up our herbs this morning, then to get the paper products and then back to the shop to replant the herbs for sale. Whew! We have this old vintage flower cart and I filled it with all different containers with herbs for Mother's Day gifts. It looks so cute all done up.
I used this old chicken feeder for a display for more herbs, now I don't know if I want to sell it!
My daughter brought me this little, old wagon and I love it with some picnic goodies tucked inside. Thanks Ashley!
Now all I have to do is sew into the wee hours to finish up some dolls! My dear, sweet, wonderful Ashley is going to do all of the baking and cooking for me!!! That sure takes a load off, and I appreciate it SOOOO much! Our shop is going to offer a pasta salad with edible flowers, cheeseball and crackers, brownies with edible flowers, pink lemonade and coffee. Each shop will have their own offerings of treats. Some will have chocolate fountains and many other goodies. There will be psychic readers in some shops, chair massages, free wax hand dips at the spa, free entry to the Holly Hotel Comedy Club, pampered chef demonstrations, live music in the street, a d.j. on another street... Should be so much fun! The town will be glowing with pink lights and pink balloons too! The best part is, my two girls (Ashley and Kim) are going to come help me out and I know we'll have lots of laughs throughout the evening. I am offering 15% off one item (excluding furniture) and for everyone that spends over $50, I'm sending them around the corner for free ice cream. Carrie's Delights has the best ice cream and other food too! (Terri, Deb and Julie - don't eat before you come!)
I hope to have some fun pictures to share with you after our event. I'm so looking forward to seeing my blogging buddies again!
Well girls, it's off to sewing land. We'll talk again - well probably on Saturday! Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine...


  1. It all sounds so fun, wish I could pop in and surprise you. Good luck with everything and please take lots of pictures, enjoy.

  2. I can not wait to get there!!!!! I am almost bummed about prom being the time it is but I refuse not to enjoy every moment of that and THEN ~ let the FUN begin. So looking forward to seeing you and finding that perfect thing (maybe that little red, tin lamp peaking out of the first picture?) for my home. We will be there with bells on!!! BTW, you can't keep buying your stock - how are you ever going to be the wealthiest merchant if you do that?

  3. It sounds like lots of fun Dawn!....I'll bet you're happy with the Idol results this week....I always enjoy seeing them revisit their hometowns after their new-found stardom....have a great Friday! Janet

  4. I sure wish I could be there because it does sound fun....I sent the information you gave me to our Chamber of Commerce but no feedback....oh well, and they complain that things are on the wya down....well....get up and get going with ideas, right.
    Hugs, Karen

  11. Hi Dawn...Was thinking about you and your Ladies Night Out...hope the rain stayed away and you were busy busy busy!! I am anxious to see the pictures - (especially the food LOL!!) Stinks that I am so far away as I would be the first one in line and I KNOW I would get at least TWO ice creams cones with all the goodies I would purchase from your wonderful store....HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY...XO, Judy
