A sweet little girl came in to the shop in the hope of finding a special gift for her Mama. Being at a very young age, Mom wasn't able to leave her daughter alone, so I suggested Mom step out side while her daughter shopped for that special something. The little girl knew exactly what she wanted. She had spotted a pair of bejeweled dangly gold earrings that she knew would be the perfect gift. The earrings, she said, reminded her of her Dad who lives in India. So together we wrapped those lovely earrings in some pretty tissue and placed them carefully in a pink gift bag. The look on her face was delightful, she was so happy with her treasure. Every once in a while, someone touches our heart, and this dear little girl made our day~shine brighter!   

One week later the little visitor returned to the shop.  She had been very busy drawing a picture for me.  Such a lovely picture on one side, a few written words on the other, and I should mention I got a hug. This work of art found the perfect place for all to see ~ and enjoy!

I'm feeling ever-so impatient.  It's only January and I am already dreaming of the Springtime.  You see, being a shop owner, I ordered all of my beautiful hats for Spring 2013 ~ 6 months ago!  It will be like Christmas when all of those parcels arrive, because I don't  remember half of what I ordered.  If I recall correctly, the hats I am most excited about are the fancy Clothe hats, Great Gatsby style!   SWOON!   Oh, and I have a new line arriving called Lillie & Cohoe (love the name).  What a treat being able to order handcrafted hats made in Canada, many of my customers will love that.  Hurry up January, get a move on!
