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
