LLLLLoooooovvvveee that sign!

I feel SO legitimate. Marshal and Preston Signs did a fantastic job fabricating my sign. LOVE it! DId I mention I think it looks great?
I had fun making baskets for two Falls Church related auctions this week. They are both Art & Soul baskets (naturally!) and contain art & accessories from the shop. Thanks to Cathy Soltys of Joie de Beads for contributing bling above and beyond the call!

The first basket is for the Falls Church City Schools Fundraiser.

And the second one is for the Falls Church Chamber of Commerce annual Gala.

I also make baskets for birthday, wedding and shower gifts. I enjoy making them; do let me know if you'd like me to put together one for you!

Signs of Spring!

The daffodils are out! Along with the crocuses, hooray! The hyacinths are next. I don't have THAT many in my yard, but the ones I have do smell divine. It's a good thing I didn't have to plant these, otherwise it would look a little bare out there like it does at the new shop. I am still in painting mode, ugh. Maybe I SHOULD have hired it out. I am getting a teeny bit tired of cutting in I MUST say.

We had a super week last week. Lots of people poking their heads in commenting on the changes. Scoping out all of the new merchandise... Of course I had to change my spiel "All of the art on the walls is by local artists" to "all of the art on the FLOOR is by local artists". *sigh* I have everything up BUT the art. Eeek! But it will all get done. Eventually. I was happy to see some old friend faces come in this weekend is well. My biggest fear is that my existing clients won't make the big 2 block trek down to see me on Farmer's Market Day. But so far so good.

Another big sign of spring is the deafening roar of my neighbor's antique roto-tiller. Yup, Saturday was "till the garden" day. Full of promise, eh? And mighty fine organic veggies to come!Posted by Picasa
