A day at the gift shop

We have just returned from the beach house where the weather was fabulous…..but I can’t say that to Mr FH as we are desperate for rain on the farm. As well as needing rain we have suddenly hit a cold patch today (guess that’s expected in winter lol). The sun was shining but boy was it cold… frost everywhere this morning at the farm. I have spent part of the day fiddling around in my sister’s gift shop. Life has been busy so I haven’t been there so much lately but today I really enjoyed myself. Lots of new giftware has arrived since I was last there. It is just so hard not to take things home with me all the time.  My sister laughs because I have this addiction to scarves (I have 7 crates full at the farm!!) so I can often be seen walking around in my work uniform with a scarf (not matching!!) draped around my neck to see if it needs to come home with me!!! So far I have resisted today but I’m back there tomorrow so we’ll see what happens.
Here are a few quick snaps of some of the gorgeous giftware she has for sale. Some great cushions too….oranges and browns. Not really my colours but very cute, just the same.
Sorry the pictures aren’t too flash but I took them quickly just as I was finishing up and it was starting to get dark. Hopefully I’ll get some a bit earlier in the day tomorrow. I’m finishing early tomorrow and having a massage after work…how nice will that be!!

I am glad you had a good time at the beach - I wish we could share all the rain we've been having this year - last year we were in a drought -
Love what I see in this gift shop - especially the bottles and the pitcher!
I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,

What a fun shop. I bet you had a ball tinkering with all of the new dishes. Love the red and cream! I have a little bird twine holder like that. A friend gave it to me for my birthday last year. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Hi Suzy Sweetie...
What a wonderful stroll through the shop this evening. I can't decide what I loved most. The blues were so calming and delightful, but I am definitely ready for Fall, so loved seeing the pitcher with the Fall stems.

I wish I could have gone to the beach with you. Just sitting in the sand, feeling the wind on my face and hearing the surf is healing enough for me. No place better in the whole wide world.

Thanks for sharing sweet friend. Thank you also for the sentiments on Bruiser. My heart feels as though it has a big hole in it. He was one in a million.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
