Jumping Into High Gear

Y'all know it tends to get a little crazy around the Casita de Trash right around this time of year.  This March is even wilder than usual, what with preparing our load for the Mother Ship, getting the booth at W&T's loaded up before we go to Warrenton (nothing worse than an empty booth to discourage shoppers) while resetting the window, AND...Bella Bean's second birthday.

I KNOW...I can't believe our baby girl is almost two either!

Trying to make the most of my time and seeing as how any excuse to spend time with Graycie is a good excuse...I called her in for a little reinforcement.  I'm a firm believer in nepotism...just don't tell her about child labor laws!

If you find yourself jonesing for a little more trash talking...head on over to Anne's!  I've written a little guest post for her while she's off chasing some windmills of her own!

  In the numero uno assistant will take over now and finish up this post for me.  I've gotta go and find more tags!  Now where the heck did I put that bubble wrap?

In the words of the fabulous Dolly in Steel Magnolias...

I don't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my tushie, so please....

Good morning!  Nana...I mean Ms. Trash is away from her desk now, but I will be more than happy to assist you.  My name is Graycie Lyn and I can answer any and all questions you might have.

As you can see, Nana Ms. Trash entrusts me to handle all her paperwork, including auction and inventory lists.  She believes in keeping the 'ol nose to the grindstone...even cute, little pug ones like mine!

Dress code at the House of Trash is very relaxed.  (Psst...Nana and I do mean my still in her p.j.s and for the record...they don't match!)

The ability to multi-task is required, but no one mentioned making paper flowers being in the job description!  I may have to ask for hazard pay to cover the paper cuts!!!

My bossy employer believes a smile is the best accessory a girl can wear to the office...along with rhinestones and big ol' honkin' bling!

SMILE?  Check!


OFFICE TIDY?  Ummm...Nana?  She said "You tell me!"

Look hands!

She's getting there y'all...all while standing on one foot!



 Vroom Room...

This is Graycie.

How may I direct your call?

I'm sorry, but Ms. Trash is out of her mind the office at this moment, but I expect her to return shortly to return all calls.  Until then...

Thanks and have a GREAT day!

Hello Miss Graycie, would you tell Ms Trash that everything looks in order and that I love her shelf of goodies!
And by the look of those beautiful flowers I think a raise for you is in order...
And also tell her, I could use a good assistant like you and if she works you too hard I have plenty of milk and cookies in my studio ...
I only wish I was making the trek to Warrenton but not possible this spring.
Blessings to both of you
Sincerely Yours,
PS...Tell Ms Trash to give Bella Bean a Birthday kiss from me!

Hello Miss Graycie Lyn,
You have the most beautiful smile. Oma Trash, is a wonderful teacher for you. You are so blessed to be the granddaughter of Oma and Opa Trash. Now, a little lesson in Dutch for you (Oma-grandma & Opa-grandpa). It is nice to see that you are helping your Nana get ready for her show. Have a good time, sweet Graycie!
Lots of hugs, Oma sandi
