Last Call for “Paint & Sip” Night!

Greetings, gorgeous! I just never know, when I plan my class calendar, just what kind of response I’m going to get. I wish I had psychic capabilities!  That would be a great help! After quite a few sold out Paint & Sip nights, our class for this Friday night, needs some love.  😍😍😍There’s plenty of…

To Market, To Market, To Buy & Buy Some More!

Hello, sweets! January was supposed to be a relaxed month of catch-up and reorganize.  I’m not sure how it happens, but now we’re almost ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Winter market, in Las Vegas, is two or three days of non-stop walking.  By three p.m., I’m ready for the senior lounge! You know they should…

This Week at the Shop!

Hello, friend! While Mr. Wonderful and I are on vacation, Jill and Alexis are holding down the shop.  As you see, Jill has her hands full, with this custom paint project!  A deconstructed hutch, in 412 pieces! Even away, my brain never stops thinking about the shop. In fact, it sort of goes into overdrive,…

New Classes, for a New Year!

Greetings!, Can you believe it’s the end of 2017?  Crazy! I hope your holidays have been everything you wanted them to be!  Mr. Wonderful and I were orphans this Christmas, so everything was pretty low-key.  We missed the kids, but the low-key part was pretty nice! Having been up at Tahoe for a week, I’ve…

Last Minute Sale & Good Wishes!

Hi there sweets!, In the new year, I vow to plan better!  Vow may be too strong of a word. Should I say try? Probably! I know you’re up to your ears in to-do’s on your list, but if you are going to be cruising by the shop Saturday or Sunday, between 11 and 3,…

This Week at the Shop!

Mr. Wonderful and I ran away from home, Monday morning and headed for the hills.  In my never-ending attempt to maintain balance in our lives, it was time for a get away. (Sunrise photo, compliments of Bob, who is the early riser, in the group!) We’ll be heading back this evening, to miss the snow…

Santa’s coming! Plus more news from the shop!

It’s true!  Santa’s coming this Saturday, around 1 p.m.!  You never know, with Santa.  Head winds, tail winds, or some extra good girl, (like me), may hold him up, but he’s pretty dependable! We’ve stocked up on candy canes and have the perfect spot for him, to sit and hope you’ll be able to stop…

This Week, at the Shop

Hello, Darlin’! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We sure did, but I have to tell you, it nearly wore me out! It had been some time since we hosted a family dinner and I had forgotten how much work goes into shopping, prep and clean up, for 17 +/-. No wonder they sell…

There’s still room for this weekend’s classes!

Hello, sweet pea!, I’m sitting at the San Diego airport, on the last leg of my return flight, from Chicago, to Sacramento.  I had gone way too long, since visiting my wonderful 92 year old Aunt Jewell and I’m so glad I made the trip! I hope I inherited Aunt Jewell’s great genes!  She still…

Tree Lighting & Holiday Open House, this Weekend!

I type this last minute note to you, as I taste test one of my chocolate chip-oatmeal-coconut cookies, just baked for tomorrow night’s Christmas Tree Lighting Party. It’s the responsible thing to do! All of us are making a batch of our favorite cookies to share with you. I got everything at the market, for the…

Part Time Position for Creative Director!

We’ve been teaching classes at the shop now, for the last five years and love inspiring all of you!  Most of our classes have focused on…
