Well, I made it through the holidays! A few times in December I thought..I can’t wait until January! This year, I sold stuff through Christmas Eve with my last sale around 2pm in my driveway. Love the last minute shoppers!
One of my last shows was on Sunday the 17th. I found an adorable invitation from Dixie Designs and set up shop at my friend Laurie’s.
Surprisingly, it was one of my better shows! So many friends came to hang out and shop. Laurie’s niece Catherine, one of my old friends, bought a pair of my new tassel earrings.
She picked the red ones and was excited to wear them that night. She said when she got home from her party, she put them by her sink in her kitchen. A few days went by and she went to grab them to wear and couldn’t find them. She looked all around and in her jewelry box and no earrings. She called her housekeeper and asked if she had seen them. She said no and suggested looking in her bathroom. Catherine was stumped. Now, while she was telling me this, my mind was racing ahead not sure where this story was going. Then she said about an hour later, her housekeeper called her back. She said, look on the tree! She thought they were ornaments and had put them on the tree.
Sure enough, Catherine went to the tree and both of the earrings were hanging there. She was cracking up telling me this story and then we were all dying. They do look like they belong on the tree but they are much cuter as earrings!
Hope you all had a great holiday season and are as excited as I am to hit the ground running in 2018.
