Winter Wonderland, It's a Wrap!

First of all, the pumpkin snatchers hit Viva on Friday night.
Don't know if you've heard of them or seen their work, but in the wee hours of the night
these "snatchers" are known to roam the streets of Sister Bay, snatch pumpkins, carve them, and put them back.That should be a post on it's own.

Lucky me!

Thanks to all of you that graced our doors, and supported our little shop.
To have the opportunity to shut down for five days and put our creative powers to
the test is wild, dreamy, stressful and uncertain to say the least.
Last year when we uncovered the windows, the parking lot was jammed.
This year, there was only one car and my heart hit the floor.

But then ten minutes later, full and loaded with barely a space to move in!
I don't think I came out from behind the counter until 1:30, so if I missed you, I'm sorry I missed you!
I didn't get to take pictures until late in the afternoon, and the front room was left with
slim pickings, but you get the idea.

New Year's in Paris.

The watch faces were a big hit.

The snowflakes are actually table runners cut from heavy felt.

Vintage twin beds decked out in whites, creams and velvets.

Vintage bow ties, perfect for adorning packages.

A picked over front room!

Hanging bed in the snow all wrapped up with bows.

The shop is still in full swing and the Wonderland will be set up for the rest of
the season, so if you missed our show don't worry!
We'll be re-stocking and keeping things fresh throughout the holidays.

Thanks to Carol, Katie, Dianne and Dan for all the help.
Look what happens when you ask for help.... magic.

Hi Angie & Carol!
We almost came up yesterday(J's 1st choice), but gloomy weather & hvy. rains forced a drier, closer compromise, Madtown. While the antiquing was great and no rain in PM, we missed you both. Know we supported you in our minds & hearts!
Love, Peace & Joy
