Labor Day weekend, shopping and party over here

I spent some time on Saturday morning in Hayesville, North Carolina visiting a few shops, including a new  favorite - Green Willow gifts, run by two women who are funny as heck.  This is the shop with the rescue cat I posted about here in July.  

 - I walked in with four other women right behind me (they were sisters and friends) - the other one offered us a glass of sparkling wine.  It was 11am and I thought about it for a second before saying yes.  :)  It turned into a party when almost everyone said yes.  

- My thought is - they get you slightly buzzed and you decide you can't live without the stuff you browse while sipping.  I did not want that cap though.  :) 

- When I turned from taking the photo of the plant in the boot planter on the front porch, the kitty, referred to above, wanted to go inside and waited with practiced patience for me to open the door before I left.  She immediately plopped down inside the foyer and stre-e-e-tched out.

- My box of purchases, guarded by a couple of frogs in the flowerbed.  The blonde one helpfully sprinkled confetti over everything.  Sigh.  My favorite - those scissors there on the left that are for cutting herbs.  I sat the box down to take a photo of a chair nestled in the flowerbed, but the photo needs some work at home.  Maybe you'll see it Friday.  Thanks for coming to the party!

What fun. I am definitely not a blonde (natural or otherwise) so I would have to be 'the other one.'

Funny! I'm left wondering what Tammie is like, though? ;-) Lynn, where did you put the purple peacock pic?

I blew it up and saw the confetti! So did you have a nice Labor Day?

Riot Kitty said...

That sounds like a pretty good business strategy to me, but I wouldn't want that cap either ;)

Louvergirl must know something I don't. What purple peacock picture? Anyway, I do love your purple reading glasses. I would have bought those. And what a cute idea to sprinkle confetti. You have the best places to shop. What is wrong with the cap? I love it.

And what a great party it was:~) I loved the sign and "the other one"

This is a store I'd like and your comment about getting buzzed is probably true, but a good idea for the shop owners.

I also loved that you used the word, "heck." I forgotten about "heck."

When I was growing up, the words of choice for my mother was "I swanee." I actually can't remember my mother ever saying a real curse word. I don't think "Oh, Sugar!" counts.

Confetti- That is too funny! Guess they are fun to shop with. Sounds like a good party!
Hope work is kind to you on your return-

I pretty much never say no to wine. And it's almost always a good idea!
