Snow is a very rare EVENT here in Central Texas. I can count on one hand how many times I have seen it in my lifetime. I couldn't believe my eyes when fat fluffy snowflakes fell from the heavens this week. It lasted less than 30 minutes and didn't stick, but I did manage to sneak this photo.
This past Thursday, Bev and I headed WAY WAY down the road for a junking trip. We are still putting out all of our great finds. I finally made it to Winnie and Tulula's in Athens and scored this fab - YES buzzard wings from my dear Friend Theresa. If you are in the area, you must make it a point to go by and see this shop. Her window display will bee up the rest of the month and it is breathtaking.
I found these wonderful wreaths made from old springs great for holding cards and old photos as well as this perfectly shabby old mirror. - Both SOLD
We just put out our new arrival of scarves and nearly sold out by end of day Saturday. It had already been picked over before I had the chance to snap this photo. Thank-you Waco. Never fear - more are on the way.
I have been wanting to play catch up with you all for awhile now . Rather than one extra long post I will leave you with bits of where the heck I have been and what I am up to. I want this blog to not only bee about the shop and my love for Downtown Waco but to also leave a personal note now and then that hopefully you might find interesting.
Matt and I had the wonderful opportunity to Volunteer on a Habitat for Humanity House with our small group from Journey Christan Community. If you ever have the chance to do this, I highly recommend it. We are already talking about doing it again soon.
It was fun and really educational and easy. Don't worry, no skills are necessary just a heart and a desire to work. Here are Becky and Dod installing insulation in a bathroom.
I hope you all had a Blessed Thanksgiving. Matt and I were so blessed and we spent the day volunteering at the Salvation Army. I wanted to do something - anything that would bring a blessing to someone else. I made these flower arrangements to take to decorate the tables. I have NEVER arranged flowers before and did it quite inexpensively.
Kim at Blooming Gals generously donated a bucket full of dozens of beautiful yellow roses. She also provides us with all the gorgeous flowers you see here at the shop each week. I initially was just going to hand them out but decided to take it to the next level. For less than $25 I was able to make 19 arrangements. I purchased a few Gerbera daises and cups from our local grocery and everything else I cut from our yard and we don't even have a garden. It is amazing what you can do with a little greenery, grasses and imagination. The reason I am telling you this is because at one point I ended up sitting next to a precious child whose name happened to bee Daisy. She was shy and apprehensive due to uncontrollable circumstances. Those Daisies were the ice breaker to a new friendship with not only her but her entire family. Do you have any Daisy Stories to Share?
