The day flew by, and mine really didn't get going, til late in the day... Had a darling couple call, and ask if I could be here, after hours... Sure! I mean it, when I say, I never mind being open late... I live here.... That little shop, really is an extension, of my home, I've come to realize... My customers, knew it , before I did... More and more, over the last few years, and especially during 'Sale' time, people would describe things to me, while I was running back and forth, that is in my "little house", I would stop, and think...'little house'? what, where, "oh, you mean the shop..." Guess I never really thought about it, that way... I just subconsciously, 'made' it, that way... I guess it really is, like a little house... And what is your home, a reflection of your own personality....now, knowing that... I really need therapy ....oh my.... While the cute couple was shopping, I continued taking 'Christmas' down... leaving all sorts of empty holes... I can't wait to fill 'em up! I really enjoyed the couple... They are young, and just bought a big old house, and are filling it up, with antiques... They truly have a vision...I could feel, they have old souls, just like mine... As we were going through quilts, I just got lost in them... Stacey saw this... I just slip into another world... while running my hands over the beautiful stitching... and fabrics... She said, "you act like you really would be sad to sell it", "no", I said.... The thing is, I only buy what I love... what I would gladly keep, myself....and quilts, really touch my soul... Stacey bought the wonderful old Crazy Quilt, she, like myself, fell in love with it... Now it will have a wonderful new home, and be proudly displayed, on her wall.... They are truly works of art... I have a busy day today, so I better get goin'... Have a GREAT DAY! Barb C.
