Peggy in space #6 just brought in some beautiful cups and saucers which would be just perfect for your spring teas.  She has some really lovely things in her booth and invites you to check them out while shopping all the great booths in MY FRIENDS AND I.
Just a reminder Mother's Day is coming soon.  Something for Mom from MY FRIENDS AND I is always a special gift.  Can't decide?  We have Gift Certificates.

Don't forget Mom

We have a  new line of greeting cards in the shop.   
The saying on the front is actually a Magnet so it's like a card and a gift all in one.   
Shown are 2 that would be great for Mother's Day.  We also have ones that say Aunt. 
There are lots of different cards with magnets for all occasions.  
Check them out next time your in the shop.   
Oh yes another great thing about these cards they are only $2.00!

Love of old pictures.

I can't stand the thought of them being tossed out in the trash when someone doesn't reconize the people in them.  So I buy them.  Or take them gladly if someone wants to give them away.  I always wonder who they are and what their story was.   I make a lot of tags out of them and someone said "but you punched a hole in it" my answer "at least they are getting a new lease on life and aren't in the trash"  and it goes with whatever it's on, so that's an added bonus.  It all started when I got my Mom's albums and couldn't guess who some of the folks were.  So after asking everyone I thought should know I just started using them.
Anyway I did it again today.  I got a big box of old black and white photo's and I can hardly wait to sort through them.  Did I need more? Don't  I already have boxes full?   Well.......... yes!  But I always have room for more.
By the way the picture below is NOT mine.  I wish it was I love it. 
I will be having baged assortments for sale in the store when I can get them sorted and can bear to part with them.  So if you like old photo's keep an eye out.

I saw a cute sign today it said




Which kind of brings me to the picture below. It's a postcard about this years Wildflower Art, Garden, Quilt show. It will be held on May 20th and has turned into a really wonderful event.

You will be able to purchase garden tour tickets at MY FRIENDS AND I soon (call first to make sure we have them) Or to get more info or purchase them on line go to the Niles Main Street Link on the left. Let's hope the rain is gone and the weather will be just like today!

We have a winner! If you made a guess of how many buttons are in the jar to the left and are curious how many there actually are it's 1093! The winner was Don McCombs and his guess was 1081. Pretty good guessing.
I'll leave the picture for a few days so everyone has a chance to see it.
