Off and running for the NEW YEAR. The shop has been closed for a week now. Why be there as we do not take returns and the cold is bitter to the bone! HEN HOUSE has no central heating and it can get a bit chilly! We have enjoyed the season with family and friends, rested………. well kind of and watched the rain come down! Time to get back to shopping and selling! This week I will be putting away CHRISTMAS that still exists in the shop and start thinking SPRING! The SAN FRANCISCO GIFT SHOW is right around the corner and I will dash across the bridge to take a peek. Later in the month I hope to take a road trip south to find old and tattered, rusted elements that make the heart swoon! By the way I am looking for an old crystal FRENCH preferably, chandelier to hang over my pine kitchen table to add a bit of TADAH if you know what I mean. Let me know if any of you have seen in your travels………… Hope 2011 is good to all of us. My motto on a daily basis is SEIZE THE DAY! Just do it!!!!!!!!!!!!
