If that wasn't surprise enough .... Kara brought this charming little garland into the shop - another gift... I'm wondering if she ever sleeps!!! It's hanging on the shelf just behind the counter. A beautiful reminder of my dream come true -- a shop filled with all the things I love to create with! Sometimes you meet like minded - and you know "they get it!" They understand why you kept the little netting off an old hat. They see tattered lace and know exactly what to do with it. Girls who know and understand texture. Fiber freaks! Hunters and gatherers of the worn and chippy frames, old greeting cards, they love the flower images on antique calling cards - they simply get it. They understand my love for those odd bits that I've hung on to for the past 20+ years. I'm grateful for those of you who understand and collect those things as well. My kindred spirits!
