Are you dining outdoors this holiday week and weekend?
I worked at the store on the 4th and will be working the rest of the weekend.
We had a surge of people coming in to buy furniture and necessaries for outdoor
Seems many put off getting their outdoor spaces in shape till the very last minute.
The last few days have been super busy at the store but the 4th was REALLY busy.
I was worn out by the time we locked the doors.
The weather has been gorgeous here and I think everyone was inspired to live outside this week!
I know I have been.
I had a lady tell me at the store that I was such a great sales person.
I do hear this all the time.
I tell them what I always tell them. I don't care at all about selling...
I'm just interested in helping them getting their spaces together.
I live and breath decorating and live vicariously through their purchases.
It's just fun to me to help someone put together their space!
As example...my friend Deidra came in the store yesterday and saw an outdoor
She has a thing for elephants.
That's him...he's quite large.
Anyway....she said I don't need him.
I said, "but he'd make a great plant stand or foot stool."
"Oh that's so practical...you know how I like my feet up!"
She was like....Oh...you are good....you turned a foolish purpose into something practical.
Oh...I can rationalize any decorating purchase!
She happily left with him and several other things she absolutely had to have after
I pointed out how necessary they were.
Did you get all your celebrating done yesterday?
I had hotdogs, baked beans, corn on the cob and watermelon...
but more to come on the weekend.
I used these in our drinks to make them festive...
Aren't they fun?....like having a sparkler in your drink!
