I want to start this post by saying thank you for all your sweet comments on our anniversary. Do I know y'all or what? All I gotta do is throw Cat Daddy at you and you're putty in my hands! Can I just say I love y'all for loving him? Makes me think I may have just made the right choice in a life partner!
The 10th has come and gone so let's talk about the 11th and what else is happening during the month of August...'kay?
The Sweet Pea Bistro is officially open! Can I get an "Oh Mama!"? The food is wonderful (I test tasted as much as I could for y'all), but I know what inquiring minds are really hungry for...DESSERTS! Trust me...Gloria has got you covered! These precious French macarones were the Bomb.com...I swear up and down! The perfect ending to a perfect lunch, if I do say so myself...and I do.
I thought I would also take a minute and show you some of Gloria's merchandise in Sweet Pea's. Keep in mind, her inventory is constantly changing and I do mean constantly. If you see something you love...better give her a call PDQ. Chances are someone else is loving it too!
That's true for both shoppes. Things have a way of magically disappearing over night it seems. Now you see it...now you don't!
Ain't no mountain high enough or in this case, ceiling, that Gloria won't send Don up on a ladder to decorate! She floated these mirrors and man alive...what a statement when you first step in the doors.
Before I forget...Amy at Whisperwood Cottage is hosting a two year anniversary/birthday party for her blog. The prize you ask? Hold onto your tushies...a custom made blog button for you and you alone! How cool is this? Amy's posts are gifts in themselves, but holy cow...a cute, personalized button too? Oh Mylanta! I know you've noticed my button and header, right? Amy's magic touch at work! This girl can do it all...from great projects to unbelievable photography...she is a talent and a half! So do yourself a favor...take a break and check her out. You can thank me later.
If that isn't enough to get you through these last dog days of summer, then I suggest you stroll on over to Elizabeth's Shop Talk blog. She is dying to see your August store displays and windows. So much so...she's making a little contest out of it. There are a few rules, but nothing for a stepper. It has to be a display you've styled this month only (not last month, not Christmas, not last year)...August 2010 only. It can be a store window or a display within a shop. Just click here to get all the details about submissions and have fun with this one.
Oh by the way...did I mention that Elizabeth being Elizabeth has added one other teensy weensy stipulation? She has selected a theme for the displays...RELAXATION!
