Snow Days

In our part of the country snow is paralizying and yesterday it happened.   We received 1-4 inches depending on which TV station you were watching.   I found myself scurring around BJ's yesterday as the first flakes started following.   By the time I came out of the store my car and the surrounding area was covered in snow.   My little Miata and I chugged along home at not more than 20 mph but we made it safe and sound.   I was a nervous wreck and needed a hot toddy to calm my nerves.  So our area has virtually shut down for the second day.   However, Mr Ups, Mr. FedEx and Mr Mailman have all made it to my house to deliver boxes with Christmas gifts we have ordered.  Yeah!!!!  I love shopping from the comfort of my home even when the weather is great.

So I took the opporunity of being stuck at home to clean my area of the office.   I knew it needed it when my husband's half was neater than mine, enough said.   My supply of costume jewelry is getting low;  I think I'm down to 20 pounds.   I need a yard sale!!!

Be back soon.

Christmas Pins

Ok so technically a peacock is not considered a Christmas pin but this guy is so cute and he has all the colors you associate with Christmas.   He is over 3 inches long and I got him at a yard sell for less than a dollar.  I think he is going to be part of my personal collection he is too pretty to sell.   As a side note I did sell $20 worth of pins yesterday as a lot to a man off of Craigslist.   He said he was buying them for his wife that she really liked pins.   So sucker that I am for a man who gives gifts I threw in a few extras since they were going to someone who would appreciate them.

Best Days

They, whoever they are, say that the best days for owning a business are the day you open it and the day you close it.   Today is one of those days.   The closing day.   I never thought it would feel so good.  I guess I did go through the mourning process this summer as I realized it wouldn't survive but now I am just plain happy!   The next door has opened and I'm going through it.

Last week I was asked to list some vintage clothing on eBay for a friend.  While it was taunting, having known and admired his dead wife whose clothing we were selling, it was exciting, too.   She had exquisite taste and lovely dresses.  These were mainly St. John knits but a few other beauties as well.
