Good evenings my friends. What a long day! Went into work for a few hours today, then friend Sharon came to relieve me so I could go babysit for Amanda's family. I'm sure not as young as I used to be!!!
I had fun putting out some new goodies in the shop. I love these black and white carrots and there will be more to come.
It is so much fun to play and put out new spring items.
Aren't these grubby eggs adorable with the ribbon and flowers wrapped around them?

I sure have had a thing for stenciled burlap lately, especially the pillows.
A big old tulip on a stick sprouted recently, hope more follow.
The sun was shining bright on this quilted flower on a spindle.
I sold a trunk on Saturday and Carol brought this LONG, black foyer table in. It would be so breathtaking in a big entry.
As you can see, it holds quite a bit.
These rolling pins would be just the right touch for your noodle board.
Carol also brought in these cute sunbonnet children. What a great accessory for a nursery.
These men's and women's spats are amazing. The women's have velvet piping and little buttons. Aren't they the best?
We have also put out lots of new colored handled utinsels, vintage towels and more.
More old cans too - my favorite is the Colman's Mustard!
My visit with Dad yesterday was a good one. He was in good spirits and his aides were all gathered around joking with him. He got a little chilly and was glad for a nice warm lap robe. Mom was there for quite awhile and then I stayed until dinner with him. It was my parent's 65th wedding anniversary yesterday - that's quite an accomplishment. Happy Anniversary from the luckiest daughter in the world.
I'm getting so excited for our Wake Up Call P.J. Party/Shop Hop on Saturday morning with Wren In The Willow. Peggy (the owner of Wren) is the sweetest gal and she has such a nice shop. If you're in the area, both shops are going to offer continental breakfast and if you wear your p.j.'s, you will get a great discount. Come on in, we'll both be open at 8 a.m.!
Time to get a little shut-eye and get back at it all tomorrow!
Until next time...
