A Great Day...in The Shop!

Had a Lovely Day... Kathy, from Plaza Antique Mall, in Dyersville, popped in, to visit... She brought Her Wonderful Mom...as well.... What Soulful Folk.... What a Treat!!!! {and...some darling bottle brush trees!!!}
I snuck out, put a sign on the door... to ring me....and we had Lunch, together! {Kathy bought me lunch....what a stinker!!! no...she is a Doll...she went home...with some Great Old Salt Glazed Stoneware! Merry Christmas Girls!}}
We had a long over due visit.... The Plaza Mall...has never looked better.... Kathy works so hard.... and, it shows....
Thanks, to the Sweet Sisters... who rang me...and shopped, unchaperoned...'til I finished lunch.... what Sweet Hearts.... I truly do...have the Nicest People, wonder through the Rabbit Hole....
It was nice seeing, and meeting everyone...One Gal, came in with her parents.... as she was heading out...with her purchases...I asked her, where she is living now...{she's visiting, for Christmas}... she said, L.A.... I asked her what she does there..."Set Displays"...I said..."Oh....I want Your Job"...{as I said it...I rethought it....soooo many people want my job....I gotta tell ya...most that go with...go once... to a show... it is grueling...and...being on the road...every day...tho, I love it so...is exhausting...and things don't get done, when I'm always gone...} The Gal, said exactly what I was thinking...We understood each other...
It goes back to my favorite story, in Streams...about a woman wanting someone else's cross... and the Lord said, "go ahead.... you may have the Big Beautiful one... with the Jewels dripping from it....you are so attracted to"... when the woman went to pick it up...it was so heavy, she could barely lift it.... then... she spied one, with Beautiful Flowers...and Vines.... that...was the one for her.... but, when she grabbed ahold  of it... she quickly let go... tho...it was Stunningly Beautiful... it was full of thorns... and she couldn't hold onto it.... she then, decided...her, little, simple cross...that the Lord had Blesed her with...was indeed... the very best...
It was a good day....Allyson is coming to visit, tomorrow eve....to sit around the Tree...and I get to hear all about her trip to Germany! {Mmmmm....I Smell Rum Balls!....}...{Spiked Egg Nog...and Rum Balls...Life is Good...!}
Peg shared the day, with her Family, in MO... Please keep her in your Prayers... and Positive Thoughts...and...Light!
I took a video of the shop, today...and am loading it... I don't know if it's going to work...but after watching it.... I see MUCH...I need to get busy doing...oh my.... oh my... oh...my....It was a Real Eye Opener... The Rabbit Hole...Truly is a Reflection...of Me.... and...it's worrisome.... I gotta get On It...and...I Will...
A Real...Eye Opener...
Love to Ya...

Such a treat to see your shop. Gives me a whole other view of your personality. I've always seen bits and pieces of what goes into your shop but to actually see it was amazing! You have such a great eye! I can't believe it has taken me so long to make the trip. Fair warning .... I will be Back!!! Merry Christmas Barb!
