HaPpY HaLLoWeeN!

It's been a tradition for the kids at Niles school to parade and Trick or Treat the downtown shops for years. In fact I used to take my now 20 year old Grandson at age 3 and 4 to walk with the kids. Yikes how time flys!
This year with Brother and Sister tag alongs we probably had close to 550 kids. The little goblins were so well behaved and we heard lots of Happy Halloween and Thank You's.

You might recognize Maxine from Tyme for Tea here with her little Grandson. Another generation joining the parade. Oh yes that's Frank my husband passing out the candy.
Even the principal and teachers dressed up.
Trick or Treat!
Do you know her? One of the Mom's who also is a MY FRIENDS AND I
regular, walked with her daughters class.

Christmas in shop

Lots of things to see at MY FRIENDS AND I and the season has just begun!

Our 27th Open House is now a thing of the past. It was a big success and we want to thank everyone who attended. If you couldn't make it, don't worry we still have lots of Christmas merchandise left. Come on in and see how pretty the store looks.
Speaking of pretty, this picture was taken last night just at dusk out my front door. I went to put the trash out and when I saw the sky I dropped the bag and made a run for my camera. It was so beautiful. The little bright dot in the sky is the moon.

The world is full of beauty ENJOY it all!

Fun Blog

If you like cooking or just vintage cookbooks, you have to go here and check out this gals blog. She has a darling site which features recipes from the 50's. If seeing these recipes makes you want a vintage cookbook of your own, come in and see the ones we have for sale in the shop.
All this makes me think of my Mom who loved to collect cookbooks and to try out new recipes Although I don't love cooking like she did (how many of us do any more) I do enjoy old cookbooks. To me they bring back fond memories of home and my Mother in her apron cooking. Speaking of aprons, you'll find some of those in the shop too! Hope you enjoy this site as much as I do.
