Good morning! Okay, so I don't have pictures again, but I will in the next day or so. I've been so busy getting things ready for our p.j. party and carting things to the shop.
I wanted to say "thank you" to all of you that have left such wonderful comments about our move. This was a hard decision, but the only practical one we could come up with. From here on, I'm going to try to make this a fun project and look forward to the construction to start and the prim decorating. Maybe things will slow down a bit after we actually get moved and settled.
Yesterday was CRAZY!!! I took my mom to the attorney in the morning, then we took coffee and donuts to my dad, then on to the bank to set up a trust, then I delivered things to the shop (I hired someone to work yesterday), then I went back to Mom's to sort and sort her downstairs, then I went to see Dad, then I came home to cook dinner, then we went to pick up things for the shop from Mom's and deliver them, then I came home to wrap packages to be shipped!!! Whew, was I ever ready for bed!
Debbie is coming out to the shop today and she is going to help me move some things around and then tomorrow night Terri is coming with a "van load" of goodies and we are going to transform everything for our fall preview! I can't wait - even though it is a little early. I can't think of a more fun way to kick off the fall season than a p.j. party - can't wait to see some of the get-ups!
Maybe I'll take some pictures today and give you another little sneak peek - I just hope some of you are able to make the actual party!
Have a great day and we'll talk again soon.
Until next time...


  1. about someone needing a had better slow down and take one yourself!! Wish I could come help you with everything you have going on!!!


  2. Wow Dawn, you tired me out just reading about what all you're doing! Janet

  3. have fun with your redo.....i wish i could come to your pj party....sounds fun...our sale is saturday and i have a lot to do...we were in columbus yesterday picking up new goods....what a day...left at 4 in the morning and got back home at a lot of good stuff off to the shop to help hubby do the priceing and displaying

  4. Dawn,
    Slow down, girl, you are going to wear yourself to a frazzle. I hope everything is going smoothly with the move & wishing you the best at the store. I've been working on tons of orders & squeezing in some prim fall items. Be posting soon.

  5. I can't believe I am reading a blog that doesn't have pictures! LOL LOL
    Slow down and take a deep breath. I am exhausted just reading about all that you are doing!
    Have a great week!

  6. You are one busy gal my friend! I hope you are swamped with folks for the PJ party. You know I'd be there in a minute if I could. In fact, you wouldn't have to hire anyone to help in the shop on busy days, I'd do it for free! What fun that would be!!

    You have such a wonderful attitude about the move. I hope your space at your mom's turns out to be just perfect for you.

    Looking forward to pictures when you have time.

    hugs, Linda

  7. Hi Dawn,
    Sounds like you have been very busy! I hope you have a wonderful turn-out for the PJ party. Sure wish I could come, but I won't be going any where until after my gallbladder comes out. As of right now, we still hope to come to MI later in August. (I'll keep you posted.)
    Have a great PJ party at the shop and I can't wait to see all your fall goodies.
    hugs, Cindy

  8. whew...wait a minute...let me sit down and catch my breath...Okay - YOU GO GIRL !!! Wish I could have a sleepover with you and your friends! Anxious to see your pictures of your fun time! Judy

  9. Okay Dawn....I'm tired! And if I'm tired you must be absolutely exhausted. What a line up of things you have done so far.
    Now my computer has been down for quite some time so that's why I haven't posted so now I'm off to read more to see what this move is all about...but I think I have an idea from past posts.
    PJ party - can I come!

    Hugs, Karen
