What a great open house....

We had an amazing open house at Leola's.  After we finished last night, most of us went to eat at a new Mexican restaurant in Ozark and just talked about what a great time we had.  It was hard work but so worth it.  How nice it is to put so much into it and have people recognize it.  Very gratifying.

Thought I would show some pictures of our visitors.  Unfortunately, when Debra andMandy were in, I was too busy to grab the camera but I did manage to take a few as the day progressed. 

This first picture is Chelsea.  She bought 2 necklaces that Kelli & Kristi made and they looked so good that I had to show her.   

These 2 lovely ladies are Katie and Dulcy who are always there for us.  Dulcy is recuperating from foot surgery so she really made an effort to be there.  Thanks Katie for being such a good nurse maid.  Katie wrote a great post on her blog about us and took some awesome pictures so run on over & check her out.                  

This little girls' name is Kayleah and her mom got her this adorable Easter bonnet.  Is she not the cutest thing.  The hat is white with little strawberries on it.  Too cute!!!

I feel so bad about not getting these 2 ladies' names.  They were so nice and the lady with the hair that looks a lot like mine, reads my blog all the time.  There's nothing nicer then to have someone actually tell you they read your blog.  Thanks ladies for coming to visit us & supporting our efforts to actually keep a shop (that's not a flea mkt.) running in an area that has very few.  We appreciate you.

Wish you could all hear the birds chirping in my backyard this afternoon. It's absolutely gorgeous out and has been a day when I can sit on my backporch & appreciate the sunshine.  It makes me want to start digging in the garden -- but I know better.
Tomorrow I'll go to Leola's to work again & I'll gather all the entries for my give-away and have one of the girls draw a name. Thanks to Debra, I've been amazed at the number of entries. She mentioned the store, my blog & my give-away & posted wonderful pictures. Could hardly believe what happened. Thanks, Debra, for your friendship and support of Leola's and me. We soooooo appreciate it. Have a great week.
