Life has been so busy, busy but today, for some reason, I feel like I have some downtime. So what do I do?? Create a blog, of course!! Stocking our pantry can wait, can't it?? And to think, I used to be one of those people that actually enjoyed grocery shopping!! Now I have to force myself out the door at gunpoint.

I spent time late at the store last night removing any evidence that Christmas ever happened. Believe me, when you own a store and start dealing with the holidays the February prior, you are ready for a fresh look come January 1 !! So I fluffed and got out all the "new" old stuff I've been finding, Valentine gifts, cards, etc. Plus, boxes have been arriving with brand new (hurray!!) inventory-a new card line, lamps, potpourri and on & on. Heart topiaries should be showing up next week as well as some new home decor vendors I am trying out. I love fresh inventory as much as you! Stop in good goods when you are in the neighborhood and see what we're up to.

Here is a picture of the Man Tree in our backyard at home. The recent snows gave him an interesting look!

Take Care,

Hi Cheri,
I loved seeing your "Man Tree" in the reminded me of the tree we named "Mr. Hoover" in our 25 acre peppermint field in Oregon where I grew up. I don't know how this California big boy redwood tree ended up with our pastor's name, but he did!! I'm a firm believer in all living things having personalities, and your backyard tree makes me smile. He seems like a real comedian!!! Anyway, thanks for sharing...I appreciate your sense of humor as well as the shop and all it's wonderful electic surprises! Thanks for all you do!
