Spring In My Step

Hi Guys!  Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the Mothers Day giveaway.  The winner is...........Nicole Chilton.  Yay, Nicole!!  AND, Thanks to all of you who signed up for the giveaway and shared sweet little stories about your inspiring moms.  I LOVED hearing all of them!!

So, movin on into spring...The roses are blooming at my house on Pickwick Street, and the sight and smell of them are putting an extra spring in my step. There is also a fresh scent of herbs filling the store at Pickwick House.  By the way, the roses are called Zephrine Drouhin.  A sweet farmers market farmer told me about them years ago.  They are a thorn-free, new/antique hybrid that grow in the shade or sun, bloom all season long, and are maintenance free.  They grow fast too.  

This past week, I needed to have 90 favors ready for a local fundraiser benefitting The Developmental Center of The Ozarks.  I wanted to use something that cost virtually nothing, but that also reflects the unique services and style we offer at the store.  I came up with the idea of using vintage books and stamped them with my logo and then added sprigs of fresh Rosemary.  

I have a set of sweet, sweet vintage-french-reproduction twin headboards in the back storage room.  I haven't brought them out to the floor because they are waiting for the perfect client or customer to put some tender loving care towards them.  If I could, I would cover them in a soft velvet, or creamy linen. 

Gotta run. Have a Slap Happy Day!!
