Come on in...

to the new shoppe... and sit a while.

Do you remember that Girl Scouts song? Make new friends but keep the old...One is silver and the other gold.. I always loved that song. Something about it was so hokey and yet so true all at the same time (as is usually the case with things that are hokey.) And it is true of more than just friendships. Life is full of blending the old and the new together, over and over.

This week has been full things like that. We spent the 4th with my family and a few friends. But instead of our old traditional fried chicken and potato salad we started a new tradition by serving a a Low Country Boil. And it was so yummy...
My sisters are moving onto new adventures, and I am the one staying home this time doing the same "old thing" & that is such a strange turn of events, me being the one left behind and all...
Through blogging and Etsy I have reconnected with old friends and made new ones...

But by far the biggest NEW of all this week is that we are finally in the new space at the local Shoppe. Our new space that is full of old things with new purpose... It is all silver and gold to me, full of wonderful glittering goodies..

So here is to moving into all the new adventures ahead for all of us, and here is to the great memories and the history that binds us together, no matter how far apart we may be!

    You are the second person who asked about it. I should open a glittery Eiffel Tower stand.
