Never a Dull Moment ...

The whirlwind that is my life continues. Last weekend was a Sidewalk Sale at The Grapevine. We have these periodically, and have a lot of fun! We set up our Charmed Life in front, with lots of jewels and treasures galore.

The store was busy ... the day was lovely ... a good time was had by all !!!

The Charming Husband helped some friends move into their new home while I was at the shop, and unfortunately zigged when he should have zagged. His back said OUCH, and he's been having a tough week. He's on the mend, but it's taking its sweet time.

We've jazzed up the booth at the shop. The Charming Granddaughter is a tremendous help, and is learning the ropes of running a booth in an antique shop. She's doing a grand job, and learning quickly.

Our latest find is an awesome 1940s white metal kitchen cabinet ... glass sliding doors, textured metal shelf, cup hooks, lighted interior. Ready to go at The Grapevine !!

It's nearly the end of the month! I know! How did it get here so quickly? Are there Gremlins changing the clocks while we sleep? The end of the month means shopkeeping on Ruby Lane and Ruby Plaza. Tidying things up, spiffing up the inventory, putting up some new sales. Worked on a few new listings, including a wonderful Wedgwood Queen's Ware (or is it Queensware?) covered dish and Anna Van Briggle drip-glazed candle holders.

Tomorrow we pick up 20 pounds of blueberries, fresh from an Amish farm in Pennsylvania.
The Charming Granddaughter is working with the owner at The Grapevine tomorrow ... so it's just the Charming Grandson and me, and I wonder what mischief we can concoct?
