Cold Outside

Well we survived another shot of winter and although is it frosty and very slippery outside I am busy inside working some magic to get spring in here. Flower pots are being painted and the wooden tulips are very cheery. Some new additions to the baby sweaters and blankets brighten that section up really quick. St. Patrick's Day decorations are in the window and the silk daffodils are in the planter out front, now if Mother Nature would just play along things would be great.
Right now with money being tight shopper need to be very selective where and how they spend their money and I realize that. That is why I try to keep the prices as low as possible. Everyone needs to find a gift for someone at one time or another during the year and hopefully I can help them out with some great items at a good price. People appreciate handcrafted gifts, they say you went that extra mile to get them something special. That doesnt mean you need to pay an arm and a leg.
I have also been busy working on some furniture pieces. Nothing too big but maybe you just need to add an accent piece to a room or maybe change the look a little. We might have it here. Come on in and browse around and if you don't see what you need, never be afraaid to ask I just love custom orders.
We are getting ready for a Art weekend here in Montello March 14th and 15th. There will be local artists showing off their fiber art as well as demos and specials through out town.

Sweetheart of a weekend

This morning we visited with Christine Bellport on NBC15's Morning Show. What a wonderful way to get news of all the upcoming activities this weekend. From The Women's Club and Historical Society Bake Sales to the Chocolate contest and Valentine Dance and couples Pool Tournament. So much to do. I just cant think of anything better than strolling through town and nibbling my way from one shop to the next eating chocolate. We hope to see alot of the community who has been home bound due to the ice and snow out and about this weekend.
