I'm finding it's much easier and more time is available on the days off from the shop for writing. Although having just said that, I'm preparing the shop for fall festivities and open houses, debuts and events. 'Tis the season!
I've been shopping for a pair of lace up boots. I want them to fall to the calf. I can't tell you how many pairs I've seen, but none have caught my eye. Except maybe these. Still pondering... But then I really like these too. A considerable difference in price. I used to have a pair of calf lace up boots when I was around 16. I loved them, and I love them now.
The new Gatherings magazine arrived Saturday morning. Customers snatched up three copies before I could even get it displayed. It is beautifully done. The pictures are stunning and it's an inspirational magazine. I've found myself going back to it more than twice. My friend Clarice is the food editor and her features, recipes are fabulous. I would expect nothing less of Clarice as she always shares the most fabulous ideas and receipts. I love her dearly. We met years ago through our blogs. Isn't that remarkably sweet? Aggie shop cat just happened to be sitting nearby.
A few Downtown Hats left but I've sold several. I'm not sure I'll have time to make more since the holidays are fast approaching in retail world. You know the drill.

Here for a short time and limited quantity
Unique and one of a kind
Sometimes you may get the last one
Making it even more special
That's kind of how it works around here.
My dear old fashioned ticking friend, where have you been? The red and white fabric seem to be a good fit for my heat pillows especially during the holidays. I like blue too.
