shop news..

I have to be honest. I am exhausted.. I was too tired to edit the photos so bare with me..
Exhausted,but loving it so much. I missed doing what I love, so I feel lucky to be here..My girls are helping me and my dear friends are coming in and taking care of me..
My grand opening will be May 1st. May Day! My oldest sons birthday..As a little girl May 1st was my favorite day. Having my son on that day was a little "gift" ..OK. i am off subject. ADD is totally kicking in.
So more to come. I will keep you posted on times of the big day. I am open now, but after May 1st it will be official and very serious..well not really.
Off to do something. Have a beautiful day!
