Good drizzly Tuesday prim friends. This weather sure has turned to wet and cold in Michigan. Sure hope we can get an Indian Summer in before it's over! I went into the shop this morning - not feeling very well - got the new pieces put in place and decided to call it a day. I never do that, but there wasn't anybody in town and I needed to come home a REST! I'm afraid I might have a touch of the flu - or something. This is a big week in Holly. Tomorrow is the Halloween Super Cruise (the last car cruise of the season), Thursday we have our soldered necklace class, and Friday night is the town's Witch's Nite Out. Sure can't afford to be sick! My friend Bonnie came in last week and helped me put up our Halloween tree and move a few things around. I love the front part of the shop to be very seasonal and welcoming.
Also rearranged the front table with more to come before this weekend.

I got in three new pieces Saturday afternoon and had to find places for them today. This oak ice box is adorable and just a great size. It is in such wonderful condition.
My favorite is the OLD blanket chest with dove-tailing and all. It has old, red paint and is a very special piece.
The last piece is a baker's table that is in perfect condition. I have a thing for those old bin drawers!
And the doors are open to the new coffee shop - Zanie Janie's a/k/a Simply Coffee. What a treat to smell the coffee roasting when I go in each morning and what a great neighbor!
Hope some of you can make it to our Witch's Nite Out on Friday from 5-9. We will be having BIG discounts on fall (if you wear your witchy finery), good treats, and maybe some music. Did any of you see the party from The Spice Cupboard at the Cinnamon Stick in Pennsylvania? Now that really looked like a Witch's Nite Out!
Hope you all enjoy your day and stay warm!
Until next time...

  6. Hi Dawn, I hope you just need some rest and it's not the dreaded flu! Sounds like you have a busy weekend. I hope you feel better to enjoy all the fun. It's been gray and rainy here too. I'm not ready to give up the nice fall weather. Your shop looks really cute!

  7. Oh, I wish I could visit your store! Such wonderful pieces, love the bakers table! I have seen one of those bin drawers loaded with fall gourds & such and it was great! She bought it at and auction just for the stuff inside, I would have been bidding for the drawer! Looked great though.

  8. Witches night out....how FUN does that sound!!! Would love to be there.

    Hope you are feeling better today.

    Gosh..that would be lovely to come into the shop each morning and smell the wonderful coffee..:)
