Good evening prim pals! Whew, what a day! Went to the attorney with my mom this morning, worked at the shop all day, went to see Terri's new Halloween goodies (WOW - there will be great new things), went to visit my Dad and sometime tonight I'm ready to collapse!Got a couple new lights in this weekend. Just love this glass "jar" lamp with the advertising. I have a flicker candle bulb in it now, but you could use a silicone bulb too. $24.95
Isn't this little mustard metal lamp a cutie? $19.95

I had a couple e-mails regarding suitcases. Yes, I will ship and here is what I have right now.
Old black suitcase, medium size, $19.95

With kind of a lavender interior.
Medium brown suitcase, $16.95
Interior is also a beige.
One of my favorites is this larger suitcase with the stripes. $16.95

Brown interior.

Another larger beige suitcase. $14.95

This has kind of a brown/burgandy lining.
Last, but not least, is the smaller black one with kind of a green gingham lining. $16.95
IDEA! One of our customers wants to stack suitcases on her hearth and fill the top one with snowmen this winter. Wouldn't that be adorable?
Hope this gives you a better idea!
I am getting SO excited about our new fall merchandise, especially since I went to Terri's house! It is going to be so much fun to make the switch - not that I'm ready for fall to get here yet. Heck, summer has barely started in Michigan!
Sorry this is such a short post, but I'm ready to go get on some p.j.'s and relax for a little while before I start over tomorrow! Have a great evening.
Until next time...
