I've Been Surfing!

If only........California Girl here, from the Sixties...transplanted to the Oregon Coast...and after MANY years....still think that Surfing means Sand, Sun and Beach Boys music blaring in the car!!

But, since I have outgrown that..(my body has really expanded in the Oregon Rain...couldn't be the food, right?) my "surfing" is now confined to the Internet, and this morning, I needed some inspiration...and look what (who), I found! Hamilton House!! What a great blog!! I thoroughly enjoyed my morning browsing! And came away with all kinds of ideas for the house. My house....yikes, that is a whole 'nother blog by itself.......hmmmm.........

Anyhow...back to Hamilton House! Click on the photo to the right to go there, and check it out for yourself!

Now, what else is happening? The Shop has been keeping me busy. Not as busy as I should be, but busy nonetheless! I am only working on Friday and Saturdays for now, and spending the rest of the week at home. Max is still not feeling all that great, and I hate to leave him. I had great plans of stitching and rug hooking and taking finished items to the shop on Fridays....hasn't happened yet! But I am holding onto hope that it will soon!

We are so happy to be in Olde Towne, and have some really great neighbors. Also a great restaurant across the street now...that has awesome soups and food....another temptation which is not one that I need! But if you ever get to Florence, you have to come down and try the Maple Street Grille! (I know the afternoon chef...and she is GOOD!!)

Well, not much to say today...which, okay, I admit is a switch from my usual blabbe..ummm...knowledg.......well, you get the picture!!!

So much has happened these last few months, and I have to admit....I have been very lax keeping up with it all!!

We are hoping that you had a Wonderful Holiday Season! Our was great! We missed our family members who were far away, but we were able to talk to them all, and somehow, even though we miss them terribly, it helps!!

Shop news is exciting! Our ad came out in Country Sampler, and it has kept us busy! We are so thankful for that! It has really made a difference! We had a great couple of months here at the shop, and we are thankful for that too!!!

Now, for the most exciting news....(well, we were hoping the Ducks would win the BCS, but since they didn't......well.....movin' on....!) The shop is moving!!! We have outgrown our space here, and while we love it, it is time to move on! We will be leaving here the 1st. of February and moving to a place just off of Bay Street. We will be playing with the big girls and boys!!! We were invited to share a space with a shop already down there, and so after much thought and consideration, we agreed. We will be in the same building, but we will be separate, with a divider between us. And we will be just down the street from The Wrens Nest! Wren, the owner of The Wrens Nest, has been so good to us and for us! She has sent so many of our customers to us, and we are thankful (seeing a pattern here? LOL), for her! And she has the coolest shop! If you ever get to Florence, you need to stop by and shop!!

Other than that, things have been just going along! I decided that I was not going to make any New Years' I am making "thoughts"....and right now I am "thinking", that I should blog more regularly. We'll see just how that goes!!
