One thing I did yesterday was run into a friend who asked "Have you ever been to HODGEPODGE downtown?!!"
She was totally smitten and I let her down gently that I'd known about it for years. And that I know the designer herself :)
Shop looks awesome!

Again--your kindness is incredible! I'm glad we're reaching into Kentucky for you and your friends! Hope you enjoyed your day!
I'm pretending to get something done today--yesterday was a total goof-off day, but lots of fun!

I saw your article in the LC asking what sort of lights we prefer when decorating for Christmas. Having grown up out West, we always used the "blinking" multi-colored lights. However, being married to a Southern gentleman and having lived years in the South.... I have grown very fond of the traditional clear lights. Not just to avoid horrid stares of disbelief from the in-laws or sudden gasps as they cross the threshold into our home; but, because it offers a blank canvas for art. With clear lights, the color of the each ornaments is emphasized. The reds become bright scarlet hues, and the golds shine like precious jewels. Ribbon or bows can offer a color that "pops"! But with multi-colored lights.... the various colors becomes over-stimulating on my eyes. I cannot differentiate an ornament from the light itself. And since our family ornaments, also, tell our story... I feel that clear lights serve as the blank [clear] pages for us to add more great memories each year. ~Sunisa
