Booth Downsizing & Easter goodies


 Won this sweet bunny from Celestina Marie last year I think! She painted the bunny and eggs and they are so pretty on my table. Sorry I can't link her up as I don't have her right new blog address. See my sidebar!


 Before is above. It is a 10 X 9 space with 2 duty days....

After is 10 X 7 feet with 1 duty day. It looks much smaller as the cases aren't that narrow. Sales haven't been the best for us at this shop. Hoping for huge improvement! Time will tell.


Sweet Sandy sent a little Easter treats my way! Thank you, Sandy!!! She made the darling little birdies. They are so cute and have glitter on them.

Went to the Bachman Ideas House and will share the few photos I took there. Pretty colors and rather a "modern"  and "clean" feel to this theme.

Any Easter plans??? Since my birthday is the day before, it will be a combination celebration! I'm not sure about the meal or any other details.

Snowed on Friday and it's almost melted. ENOUGH!! Took the puppies on a walk today and then they got a bath. Dirty feet and bellies, but we all enjoyed the walk.

warmly,
deb

Your booth looks good ! One duty day is better than two :) Now I am wanting MORE space at the mall I'm in ... but thankfully we don't have to work it at all. Just when we have things to take in.
Snow? Snow??? oh my !It is nice and warm here !
No Easter plans. Just give thanks and have a good meal (())

Good luck with the new space, Deb. I hope it works out okay for you. I don't think sales have been very good at any of the local places, either.
Not sure what is going on with Easter here yet. I am back to new baby tomorrow for the rest of teh week.
Those things by Celestina Marie are just gorgeous, aren't they? She is so very, very talented...and lovely to boot.
Happy Sunday night to you- xo Diana

Wishing you the best with your new space. Fingers crossed for lots and lots of sales. Enough cold and snow. Maybe by breaking up the ice rink in our back yard, will get spring moving along!! Love your gifts from Sandy and Celestina Marie. Have a wonderful week ahead.

Hope the new space does well, Deb! I am heading to the Ideas House this week!

Maybe with Springtime, sales will pick up. It was nice today, and hubs Said it might even be hot early this week.
I've always thought it would be fun to have a store.

I think the booth looks about the same and it sure is worth not doing a duty day! Glad your snow is melting. Can't wait for the idea house!

I had to do a double take - your booth looks a lot like mine! It looks like we like a lot of the same stuff. Wish I lived closer so I could visit!!

That is a very sweet bunny you got and adorable little chicks! Your booth isn't really that much smaller but I'm sure working one day less is a big help. Easter is coming up so fast! That means so is your Birthday!! Hope it is a wonderful one!

We are sending all the northern folks back to you, so maybe sales will be up :-) Easter with family this year. Our second year without Mom. But life goes on.
