Friday Shoppe Talk

It's been awhile since I have done a Friday Shoppe Talk....the veritable "so much to do, so little time". Boxes are packed and out the door this morning, sigh of relief. I have lots running in the brain to work on, will see what I can get done if I turn this darn computer off for a bit the next couple of days. Monday is my birthday, and we will up at my sissy's on Sunday with some family for a little fĂȘte.

I am trying to get the Bits & Pieces Boutique going on the website, which you may have noticed. My studio closets are crammed with bits and pieces that I have collected over a life time of creative endeavors, so I figured that I could part with some goodies for you creative gals. Also working on some stuff for the annual opening of our Beach Cottage Boutique...sometime in March with some fabu things on the way that you won't find anywhere else:-).

But for now.........look for this Wowzie Antique French Mannequin (among some other goodies) next week on Shabbyfufu which is a recent Buying Trip acquisition. Thought about it being a keeper for a long and hard couple of weeks, but I am more of a finder than a keeper....and she's quite a treasure.

One more quick note, I opened our local paper with my cuppa Joe this morning to find this article by the humorist Dave Barry....which happened to be about colonoscopies. " A Journey Into My Colon And Yours" is a
MUST read (click on the link) if you are having any issues or are in the 50+ age group.....and in true ROTFLOL Dave Barry style. Have a wonderful weekend ladies.......and maybe a fĂȘte of your own!

XOXO~ Janet ~

Oh Janet, that French Mannequin was a fun find!
And boy, do I know what you mean about the collections of bits and pieces. I'm in the process of putting together fabric & trim craft packs, myself. All that little stuff takes up a lot of room!
Fun read about the colonoscopy. LOL
I've got a few years before I go there...but I am 2 years overdue for my baseline mamogram. Yikes!
You got an article for that? :)

Oooh Janet,
So happily surprised you posted today. So many things to look forward to here in the future - am I curious!

You can't find things like yours anywhere else already Sweets.

So you're a finder not a keeper? I've got to work on that... you should see my poor little house!

I love Dave Barry, so I'm off to take a look.

Can't wait for all your surprises.

Happy weekend xo~Tracie
