These sweet little birds sing as customers pass by...

Spring must be on it's way.

It's time to feather your nest with pretty things that make you happy.

I'd love to say...


that I was bit by the Love Bug...
but sad to say I've been bit by the Lovely Flu Bug...
Today I finally felt like crafting so I'm hoping that this is a good sign.

I simply cut a heart out of cardboard,sprayed it with chalkboard paint, and added a pretty ribbon...

We're back...

Mom and I had a great time at the Atlanta Gift Market and bought lots of fun new things. The store is in need of some new and exciting products and we are looking forward to them arriving soon. At the show I always get inspired by all the fantastic showroom displays and can't wait to get back to the store to make some changes and mix it up...
Here are a few pictures from our shopping trip.

Dots and Stripes

We were so glad to receive our favorite bowls, along with teapots, mugs and pitchers this week. They sure have helped perk up the store.



The red has always been the most popular color and sells out super fast. Perfect timing for Valentines day.




Blue is my personal favorite, as I have always had it in my kitchen. We also received yellow and it works well with the blue.



Jana and Clarice will be back thursday and all of us are eagerly waiting to see what all they ordered. Don't wait to long to come see for yourself, as I'm sure it will start arriving soon and it will all be great.
