Happy Monday! I think fun was had by all the New London Waterdays Celebration this past weekend. Our store went in and joined Main Street for the sidewalk sale on Friday, which was hot, but a good day. Saturday morning, the weather cleared up just in time for the parade which we also took part in. Now back to "real work" at the store today...lots of ordering taking place, so check back soon as the boxes of new stuff start rolling in. Also of note is the beautiful new dining room set dad picked up from the Amish. It is 1/4 sawn white oak with an English Chestnut stain to match the buffet we already had in here. It's a beautiful set that will last a lifetime. Keep enjoying summer everyone!!

A rainy day...normally I'd be bummed, but when you own a store in a summer tourist area, it's a great blessing!! Come in and check out all that's new since you can't be on the lake or golf course! New since I last wrote, are 2 lines of beautiful wooden chidren's and adult decor with beautiful sayings. My favorite is this simple phrase (in fact I had to buy 1 for myself as we were unpacking them:) ) "BE YOUR BEAUTIFUL SELF". Isn't that great?? As if the saying isn't good enough, mine is this beautiful green colored peice of wood with the saying in simple blocked letters- love it. It's going to be one of my new momisms to my kiddos as they grow and doubt themselves or feel picked on, etc... Sorry, didn't mean to get deep on you... Other sayings are "Love You To The Moon and Back" or "Live in the Sunshine, Swim in the Sea, Drink in the Wild Air" -Ralph Waldo Emerson on large wooden wall picture frames. There are also children's cork boards in beautiful boy and girl colors (girls have sparkleys and butterflie and cupcakes of course) for children's room decor. I'm not explaining them very well, but just come out here and check them out for yourself- it will be worth the trip!! And have a wonderful rainy day.
