OOPS! I have been posting on my retail site for a couple of years now, and when someone comments it posts automatically. DUH - it didn't work that way on my new blog. So if you were looking and wondering what happened - I found out tonight that I have to manually go in and publish each comment. Oh the modern world is sometimes so confusing. But I'm safe and sound in California - but a little pooped out. Got in to Sacramento about 7:30 pm last night and arrived at my sister's house about 8:30. Then of course we decided to work and finally went to bed about 11:30 pm (which of course is 2:30 am my time!). Then 4:30 am came around today and I was wide awake and ready to go. Therefore you can understand why I didn't even take a look at the comments earlier today.
I'll fill you in on this last show of the year - each year now for 21 years my sister has a "boutique" at her house. I arrive about a week before the show starts and we move furniture out of rooms and set up displays throughout the house. Now of course if she had a nice small house it would be different, but she has a very big house. Between the 3 hours we put in last night and the 12 hours or so we put in today I have made a little progress. And if you thought my pink tree was fun in Houston you should be the "sitting room". We have a black wrought iron tree with white ribbons and green lights, a lime tree tinsel tree, a pink tinsel tree, and 3 small white feather cone trees. It is looking so cute. I'm going to take some pictures and post them once I get home and you'll be able to delight in our winter wonderland. My job is to set up 27 crafters merchandise which can sometimes be a little overwhelming for "color girl". I have little sections set up throughout the rooms - you never know what you'll find. So far we have a chicken section, a black and silver section and a pastel section. We open for business on Thurs. night so that gives me one week to get it all set up. Seems like a long time, but it really isn't. Well I better see if I can get the binding sewn on one quilt I brought to sell. Mary Jane
