Hoping for Spring

How about a new plant stand ? It is made of distressed wood and comes with a great chalkboard. Alot of possibilities with this piece !!!

How about in a craft room for supplies or in a bathroom with spare towels. I think right now full of bright yellow daffodils would be a perfect way to use it.

Feeling Blue

Sorry for the delay in posting, but I had a great getaway to Bend, Ore. to meet up with my parents. It was beautiful their, but I'm sure it isn't as nice as where Jana is. I hope she is having a great time.

I love this blue color and have always had it in my kitchens over the years, so I thought I'd show you some of the things we have at Joyworks as we don't always do alot with the blue area, but we do have some fun items.

I love the pitcher with white dots, the cobalt blue salt and peppers shakers are a must have and we also have a great selection of kitchen towels, napkins, etc.

I'm sure I'm not the only fan of blue and hope that some of you out their are feeling it too.

Need a Cart

After unpacking the boxes and some assembly I couldn't wait to put this wonderful flower cart in the window. It is made of distressed wood and has quite the vintage look.

I wanted to load it up with lots of fresh spring flowers, but our the big bunny was to cute and loaded with moss and cabbages which we carry in the store it turned out pretty cute.

Perfect Timing!

This morning I got a call from Jana giving me a heads up as to what I had to deal with when I got to work today. Apparently they got this shipment late in the day on Monday and didn't have a chance to unpack it. I told her "thanks alot" and that she had perfect timing for her getaway. I wished her well and told her I'd try to make her proud on this blogging thing.

We got even more freight today, so check in tomorrow and I'll post some of our new goodies. Oh and we had Evening Magazine out right in front of our store filming for an episode tonight, so be sure to watch and hear all about the happenings in Snohomish and hopefully see some of our loyal customers on TV.

My Bag is Packed

I'm ready to go... vacation in Brazil! It was tough for me to get everything into one backpack but I managed to stuff it all in. My husband and I are really looking forward to this wild adventure. We start in Salvador and then fly to Manaus where we will stay at a Jungle Lodge on the Amazon. Then we fly back to the coast to play on the beaches of Fortaleza and Natal. We end our trip in Rio de Janeiro where I plan to do a little shopping...
I'm going to try to blog from Brazil so look for trip updates. Jill is doing me a great favor and blogging from Joyworks in my absence. Thank you Jill...:)
