Leola's work day......

It's so nice to get the greenery cleaned up and vacuuming the salt that gets tracked in.  Leola's is looking so good.  Lots of new merchandise and hardly a sign of Christmas to be seen.  With Spring Open House the first weekend in March, we're all thinking Spring.

I took in new merchandise yesterday and fixed up the table with a wonderful wicker trunk filled with ironstone and right before closing, someone wanted it so had to stay late and re-do.  I love it when that happens.  Didn't take long and got home in time to see Antiques Roadshow.
Here are some more shots of Leola's.

Judy made red paper flowers.  Love the way they turned out.  Wouldn't they make a great valentine?

Brenda makes the most adorable tags.  She's going to be carrying more "smalls".  Come in and check out her glass knobs, black iron hooks and soaps.

Kristi's pillows.

Some of Pam's new merchandise.

It was a good day at Leola's and we accomplished quite a bit.  Today my plan is to start working on my chair again and hopefully get it finished before I have too much time in it.  Have a good day!

Looks great Jan ! If I don't get there before , I sure want to make it to the Spring Open House.
I have been to the F.M. store , but it has been a long time , I had forgotten about it. This time we hit a little store in Alpena , Ar. called the Rag Barn , about 80% of her fabrics were $2.98 per yd.

I love 'owning' a shop vicariously through you.
