Good evening friends! Dick and I would like to thank our great customers for making the first day of our Springthyme In The Village open house a success and let you know we are looking forward to one more day of fun and festivities.
This was a special day for me. Cindy and her husband Gary, from Cynthia Lee Designs blog, came to the shop from Ohio with their two adorable little Yorkies. Cindy and I have been blogging for about 3 years with each other and we finally got to meet! What a nice treat!
It is so much fun to see people that we haven't seen in awhile too. Another favorite customer is Kris from Adrian, MI. She always puts a smile on our faces when she comes in. Talk about a great gal! Just wish I would have gotten a picture.

Thank you Cindy and Gary for making the drive to Michigan!

After the open house, we were invited to some friends for dinner - and what a dinner it was! Barb and Dennis had a beautiful strawberry salad, twice baked potatoes, corn on the cob, steak on the grill, and this gorgeous apple pie with ice cream. Dick about had to roll me home! What a great way to top off such a fun day.

I almost forgot to with our daughter-in-law Kim a happy birthday yesterday. Kim is the one standing behind my mom. We were so blessed when Chad brought Kim to our family, she is just a joy. A lot of you have met her mom, Sharon, that works at the shop on Sundays. We love you Kim and "Happy Birthday".
If you didn't get a chance to make it to the open house today, there's still tomorrow. We will be open from 10-5 and there are still lots of goodies to be found. We are going to put all the bunnies and chicks on sale for the last day of the open house, so it's a great time to finish up your Easter/spring decorating. Hope to see you then.
Well friends, time for this old gal to get some sleep. Hope all of you have a Sunday filled with peace.
Until next time...

  4. Hi Dawn,
    We made it back home safe and sound...but a little wet. We ran into some rain a couple hours from home.
    It was so great to finally meet you and to see your awesome shop. Hope the Spring Open House was a good one for you!! Holly is a beautiful and charming little town. I love my goodies that I got...I put the bird on the sunflower and I love it!! Forgot to ask you if you made the bird or bunny that I purchased.
