Hello! I am sure you have guessed by my total lack of blogging that I have been swallowed whole by getting ready with the store... yes! There is so, so much to do and set up - and this is even before we have access to the actual space. Insurance, accounts, signage, tags, etc, etc. Not to mention marathon SHOPPING! I am set on opening with "new" merchandise (even though it's all vintage) and have been searching high and low to add to my store stock. It also took me a total of about 5 hours to sort out all those lovely mannequins :-)
I have been thinking, rather sporadically, about blogging. While I'm driving around I suddenly think about a blog post, then forget it. I wake up in the morning with an idea, then get sidetracked. Well, yesterday something wonderful and inspirational happened. I got the best mail!! A while ago I won a blog give-away on Not Enough Time for Everything. I was (still am!) soooo excited by this, and yesterday I recieved my amazing gift in the mail. Hooray!
The gal behind this blog is truly amazing, and you should know about her. Haruna is one busy lady, with two Etsy shops filled with a broad spectrum of mediums from jewelry, clothing, gorgeous prints, and the cutest little handmade purses. I was lucky enough to win a little bird purse and coin purse. Double hooray! You already know how much I do love anything "bird"........
Find her at Lunatepetal and also at htwprint on Etsy. And look at my cute little owls she included, too. Thank you, thank you!!! Oh, and please excuse my dark pictures... it's totally gray weather here in Portland today and I am anti-flash. See you soon!
