I love this lacy burlap. It mingles nicely with the small gourds, pumpkins. Soon the shop will be dressed in holiday magic. I generally don't do an enormous amount of holiday decorating at the shop. Generally, no trees, just greenery. This year however, I'm pondering thoughts of a white tree sitting in the window seat with little white lights.
I ordered new cotton holiday ribbon. I'm partial to cotton ribbon nowadays. The flat bottom sacks made from a favorite holiday print. I discovered the fabric last year while on a trip to Washington. My friend Clarice escorted me to her favorite yarn and fabric shop. I purchased a yard or so then. When I returned home, I located the textile on-line and ordered more knowing I wanted to make the holiday sacks. Love the tiny red birds. I'm usually not into Christmas motif fabric, but birds, especially tiny red one's that's different.
Holiday Soap no. 1 has arrived, but flying out the door! I introduced the new soap early as I always do. It's my favorite too! Although, Wild Pine might possibly be runner up.
Oh yeah candles! I've been wanting to carry an exclusive line of candles for awhile. I finally found, through a friend, a line that uses the same manufacturing scents that Bittersweet uses, Sweet! The candles will be private label, and I'm envisioning a big B on the round label. Pretty glass containers with cool lids and, I'm excited! Looking forward to developing a long selling relationship with the folks that make the candles.
Enjoy caring and sharing autumn days.
