Not sure if Spring is around the corner,
or Winter is coming back?
These up and down temps,
sun, rain, freezing rain and snow
have given both Bob and I a cold.
As February 2023 comes to a close soon,
my final Valentine pics are from the store.
These pink flowers were such a hit last year.
I was able to purchase more this season...
which usually I am unable to do.
The one wholesaler offered them again,
which normally they do not do.
I also bought more white ones too.
I loved these teddies with love balloons.
I kept up the Christmas tree and added
ice cream cones and my pink hearts for sale.
Bob's wood love sign sold.
The packaged hearts were a hit.
Also sold another Hare of Hearts.
These signs are all sold out as well.
Well we found out another store will be closing
in our quaint river town.
This time the doggie store.
Plus the toy store that had just opened,
recently shut its doors too.
I know I have said this time and time again.
Please support your local home town stores.
Owning 2 businesses, Bob and I are not
able to visit the other stores in town,
however I do talk to my customers.
I tell them all we have
great shops and restaurants in town.
We do however eat at our restaurants
and show support that way.
Enough of my soapbox again....
In other news, at the grocery store the other day,
I had two baggers. One was complaining to the other
that working for this store was the worst.
I looked at the young man and said,
"the grass is not always greener on the other side,
and every job sucks at some point in time."
"Trust me, I know".
The one complaining stopped talking,
but he did thank me when finished
packing up my groceries.
I also thanked him back.
Monday was a bank holiday,
so I was excited to work on a July 4th doll.
Well that did not happen.
For the life of me I could not find my onasburg fabric.
Ended up working on my version
of a vintage reindeer ornament I drew out.
Created from a spring green and cream wool
I recently purchased for this project.
The mistletoe is also green wool.
At least I remembered where my wool was
for this project. Thank God.
I chose a variegated Christmas embroidery floss
for the hanger.
Crocheted a simple chain using a Christmas color
Sugar & Cream yarn for his scarf.
He sports a pink pom pom nose.
He will be part of my vintage
handmade vintage Christmas tree this year
for the gift shop.
What do you think?
Well our house is once again stocked with wood
in preparation for the impeding storm today.
Hopefully we won't lose power.
I also hope all my friends in the path of this storm
More Love Blessings To All!
