Sorry about the quality of these pictures. I dug out my other camera since I couldn't find the charger for the one I really like to use (story of my life lately) and I think I need some real practice on this one.

Fun stuff Fun colors Just Right For Spring!

By the way................if you don't receive emails from MY FRIENDS AND I you are missing out. I will have a fun coupon in the next one I send out in a few days.
You can click on the email me button to the left and email me to be added to our list. I promise I won't pass it on and you will receive only emails about MY FRIENDS AND I and Niles.

Back from Atlanta

And was it ever cold. We are so lucky here in the Bay Area. Today feels like Spring to me. Driving around town today there were Almond trees, Sunflowers and Mustard already in bloom. I will have to put my camera in the car and start taking pictures.
I bought LOTS of great merchandise for the shop and can hardly wait till it starts coming. I'll keep you posted on that.
I was reading magazines on the plane and saw this. Your smile makes me laugh! Your laugh makes me smile! Great Valentine sentiment.

Off to the Gift Show in Atlanta

I was suppose to fly out yesterday but Mother Nature made a winter visit to the Atlanta area and so my flight was canceled. I was able to get a flight out this afternoon. I'm excited and have a good feeling about this trip. I just know that I'm going to find some wonderful new merchandise to order for the shop. More news on that when I get back. I'll leave you with this cute saying that made me smile.
When life gives you lemons, throw them back and demand Chocolate!

Who likes Red?

January will be gone before we know it and then its one of my favorite holiday months. February means Valentines day. How many of you exchanged Valentines in school? We always had to bring a milk carton to school to decorate and use as a mail box. We kept in on our desk and kids would drop cards in it all week then you got to open it on Friday at the Valentines day party.
My Mom was always a Room Mother and brought the best decorated cupcakes. No mixes for her, she baked from scratch.
I guess the sweet memories is what makes it special to me.
