Scenes from the Shoppe

hello!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  We had a busy little weekend at the shoppe, but I managed to find the time to rearrange a little.  I didn't realize that I missed working in a boutique until I was able to change things up... even more than I do at the house!  So, I thought I would show you a few photos I took this weekend.  Click on photo or here for a fun interactive shopping guide!

I got my hours decal for the front door!  It made me feel like a real shoppe!

This is one of the most popular items that people spend their time digging through... one of these days, I am going to get rid of our PB flatware and get a mismatched set.  But, for now, I will part with them *wink*

This was made by Mr. Hughes, of course.  But, I will take a little bit of credit for it since I gave him the idea and also showed him the pretty French envelope.

And this, my dears, is something I am SO excited about... like jumping up and down excited.  We found this post box last Wednesday while we were out on our family day.  And, Mr. Hughes knew it would be perfect for our little ....

... candle line!!  This is something I have wanted to add since we opened.  I love really nice candles.  We carried a few lines at a boutique that I worked at in college and I loved so many.  I knew when I saw this line (Linnea's Lights)  featured in Country Living that it would be a right fit, even before smelling them.  And, when we got the samples in... well, all three of us had a great time sniffing away and finding the right scents for us. 

I was so excited to get them before Christmas.  You should have seen baby hughes and I chasing down the FedEx man on Saturday!  He went to the building across the street, and I just knew those were our candles.  I was thrilled and so was baby hughes... let's face it... he is just thrilled most of the time *wink*
So, we dug in the boxes and Mr. Hughes couldn't get there fast enough to help me heave this post box up on top of the library table.

Okay, back to the awesome post box... check out the back... it is pretty cool too with all of those little brass labels with names.... check out this name!  Mr. Hughes and I debated on whether or not it was the Woodrow Wilson.  I don't think it is, but wouldn't it be awesome if it was!

Okay, I am off to paint... I have a full house right now with furniture to paint for clients and for the booths and shoppe.  Got to get busy.busy.busy. (quick... what Christmas movie is that from?)

bye for now!
