Shop Blues

A group of friends on a Girl's Weekend came into the shop today.
They are celebrating their 50th birthdays.

I loved their energy and how often then would call to each other about how cute this was or how wonderful that was.  The shop is all my taste, so it felt quite validating!

 They picked out interesting items, like this fabric.
And had ideas of how and where it could be used.

My favorite customers are the ones who like the shop.
I do love to make sales, but honestly I am equally happy when I have an appreciative person, even if they don't buy a thing.
So in my usual California enthusiasm (which I know is not really appreciated in New England), I blurted out how delighted I was to have them in the shop and liking so many of my things. It went over like a lead balloon!  I felt like an idiot the moment the words were out of my mouth.    

So to make myself feel better I decided to make my "blues" into a photographic essay and  share it with you!  And it has worked!  Enjoy the pretties and thanks for listening!

For today's Pink Saturday posts go over to Bev's blog.

Your blues are perfectly lovely, and it's a shame more people here on this spit of land don't share your enthusiastic manner! We need a little less "Yankee" and a little more "California dreamin'"! ;)

Well Hello Marilee!
It's so nice to see you blogging again! I love your blues girl and if I were in that shop of yours, I would certainly appreciate everything in there!!!!

The wedding looked fabulous! Just like a fairy tale.

So glad to have you visiting again and having fun here in blogland :)))

I don't think I could handle New England!! I'd be hugging my shoppers.

Happy Thanksgiving!
