Well the tree is down,
and has been hauled away…


sparkly orbs of goodness

at my house, have been lovingly wrapped in tissue,
and boxed for another year.

And oh what a marvelous holiday this has been.
but at the shop,  the R&R ladies have been scurrying about,

gathering all the


that remains, so that all of you

“AFTER Christmas bargain hunters”

can have a successful

“search and rescue” mission.

All Christmas decor is NOW

40% OFF

as well as

25% OFF

All Ladies Clothing!

So after the tinsel is gone, POP into the shop,

and ENJOY a little R&R treasure hunt.

  2. Happy New Year to you!


    Rosie dearest, your blog has always been on my blog roll, but it has never shown when you have a new post; our morning cuppas has been what has kept me up to date with your postings, but in the last several days during this first week BACK at school, I have been having to RUN OFF to class even EARLIER!!!

    PRECIOUS ONE, YOU ARE HAVING A SALE and I can’t even GO TO IT! I sure wish I could. Let me tell you, I would do a TON OF R&R, RETAIL THERAPY, and some eating of those fabulous scones you just sent me. Pass the lemon curd please!!! Well, the tinsel is coming down…oh, you have a few strands in your hair, dearest! And the vintage ornies are getting put into their dainty little tissue paper and in their boxes. NOW, the rush for VALENTINES! Ohhhh, the fun never ends! And the giggles continue on into the new year, chez toi. Oh how fun it is to see you at my blog. Yes, the new year is off with a bang; I am getting TWO NEW STUDENTS IN MY CLASS, a boy and girl TWIN SET!!!! So darling, but WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO I am going to be crazy busy.

    Well my sweet one, ENJOY THE SALE; I just KNOW a bunch of good shoppers will come on by to grab the goodies that you have so beautifully set out in your shop. I send you a HUGE HUG of love and see you in the morning…Anita

    :) :) :)

  4. Good morning beautiful friend…..sending you my fondest hugs and cuppa!! Anita

    :) :) :)

  5. I wish I could come to your sale…that would be quite a drive for me from Alberta. Dang.
    I asked my mom on my last visit if I could have all her old Christmas bulbs…she has some beauties. She doesn’t put up a tree anymore.

  6. Hoping the start of 2012 has been a joyous one! Wishing I could shop in your beautiful store!

  7. Hello dear friend! Happy New Year!! If I get a chance before the lil man comes I Will pop in and see what treasures await! We are down to the wire here…any day now! Hope you can come visit and meet him when he arrives :) Hope all is well! xoxo

  8. Good morning beautiful one! Polishing the floors? Putting away the last of the tinsel? Oooophs, you forgot a strand…there ya go…..how about a tea break? I have some lemon bars here, and a fine Earl Grey. How are ya beautiful friend? Well, we are just fine here, enjoying, but a bit confused, about this “warm” January with no snow! I will ENJOY it, but it almost seems like SPRING! I keep feeling that sensation when around April, even the air feels as if it is time to get report cards done and then send the kids off to summer vacation!

    May this be a super year for you in SALES, in FRIENDSHIPS, in FAMILY GATHERINGS and just plain old LOVE…..love to you!


    :) :) :)

  9. Morning dear one….I will pop into your lovely store! JOY joy joy!
    Yes…Christmas is all gone here too..but the memories are still around..it was a good one.
    Back to normal..well in my life there really isn’t a normal anymore….it has been ever so crazy. Busy busy busier!
    Think of you always….have a blessed day and love always. xoxoxoxoxoxo

  10. Good morning precious and beautiful friend.

    It was so lovely to hear the squeak of my back door, to see you ENTER in, to smell the fresh aroma of your scones and to taste the sweetness of tea time with you. Yes, busy, busy, busy is the BUZZ WORD for all of us these days! YIKES! Who would have thought January would bring so many things to do. But we are well, the Christmas memories went by too fast, but now it is time to get the new year started. I am so GLAD TO HEAR you are painting away and enjoying every moment of it! That’s my girl! I am trying to juggle new creations for Etsy while working and trying to be a WRITER, but things are not developing as quickly as I would like. But I am chipping away at things and hopefully things will fall into place as I envision.

    NO SNOW FOR US! What? Oh well, it will only make the path to your beautiful home much easier for me in the morning….what a lovely cuppa my sweet; see you in the morning.

    Anita :) :) :)

  11. Hey Rosie….I just read your comment on my blog. I googled that BRIDGE you told me about, the suspension bridge. HOLY COW, When I lived in Chilliwack for 4 years, we’d go to Vancouver from time to time, and I NEVER knew about that bridge.
    BUT, I told hubby if we get out there again (and we will, he has a neice who lives on the island) I WANT TO TRY IT. I wonder if I’d pee my pants (tee,hee)

  12. WOO! I am late today! No morning cuppa for me this morning; I had to rush to get my Etsy photos in and post. How is my sweet cuppa friend?

    :) :) :)


    I have some MONKEY BREAD FOR YA! Have you heard of it? It is yeasty, gooey, sweet, and tender. Just pull apart and it tears off so softly. Good with a spot of Earl Grey!

    Having fun precious? I AM!!! OFF TO CREATE! HAPPY SUNDAY!

    Anita :) :) :)


    How is the sale going my dear? Sure wish I could have attended! I am off from school today for Martin Luther King day. YEAH!

    I am having my tea and I thought I would pop in. LOVE TO YOU TODAY! Anita

    :) :) :)

  15. Good morning precious friend over the picket fence! Love IS in the air and DOES pop up everywhere!!!! I sold ALL my wands except for one. SHEESH! I had no idea! YUP, I am up to my elbows in glitter and loving every moment of it! But juggling that with work is a bit of a challenge. Now it sounds as if you are having a GOOD TIME painting and spreading the love as YOU DO SO WELL…isn’t it amazing how time stands still when we do that? It keeps us occupied in a meaningful way when we spread the love. Ahhhhh…you have SNOW! Koralee mentioned that you are getting so much! Friends in Washington report the same thing and a friend in Chicago reported TORNADO WARNING! Here? NOTHING, NADA, RIEN, ZILCH!!! Minnesota has NO SNOW, at least here in the Twin Cities! But we are chugging along just fine without it!

    LOVE AND MORE LOVE TO YOU DEAREST….I wave my last little wand over your way, to say,


    Anita :) :) :)

  16. oh, how i wish i could peak into your
    beautiful shoppe! some day i vow
    to do that!

  17. Thought of you today and figured I should swing by here. I do think of you and hope all is well in the roses & rutabaga department. *hugs*

  18. Oh….you have some gray paint on your cheek dearest; let me get that for you…there..all cleaned up! PAINT AWAY MY DEAR! Anita
    :) :) :)

  19. Good morning precious soul!

    Just popping in to say hello with some raspberry bread pudding for breakfast….LOVE TO YOU! Anita

    :) :) )

  20. PRECIOUS ONE!!!! Ohhhhh….excuse me, let me wipe off my mouth; that raspberry bread pudding is so good……AH!!!!! NOW!

    YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT OPENING UP AN ONLINE STORE???? HOW FABULOUS IS THAT DEAREST! And do you know that for the longest time I have been hoping you would?????? THIS IS EXCITING! Now, are you having a WEBSITE designed or are you going through ETSY? MY SHOP IS REALLY doing well, after having sitting there off and on, very unsure if I would make it. But now things have picked up, but I NEED TO MANAGE it well. You are brave and this is exciting news dearest!! You will be busy indeed, but I am so glad to know that you are taking this leap of FAITH and that you will share your wares with the rest of us who cannot step inside of your lovely space. This calls for another scoop of pudding! Come on, hand me your plate……

    Anita :) :) :)

  21. Hello Rosie~ It’s always nice stopping by for a visit.
    I enjoy your posts and the treasures you so generously share, especially when you include peeks from your charming shop. Although Christmas and all the trimmings have been put away. I know you’ll have luscious wares for Valentines. Which I look forward to seeing with bated breath.

    I hope you can stop by to see the Valentine surprises I’ve got in store. This week starting with…Pain au Chocolat. I’ll put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea.
    Sweet wishes,

  22. Good morning dearest! I am coming here with a cupcake from Sara! Yum…take a break with me?

    ENJOY YOUR BUSY DAY and I hope that your plans for an online shop are coming to fruition! Anita

    :) :) :)

  23. Thinking of you today! xooxxo

  24. Hi sweet friend…got your lovely message…are you working Sat? I may pop in to say hi if you are. Plus do you have Anita’s new email address? I am having trouble getting onto her blog…some weird warning always pops up that says she may have a virsus. I soooo want to tell her I am still thinking of her. I emailed her school address but I do not think she got the message. If you are talking to her could you relay the message…have you had any problems??
    Let me know about tomorrow. xoxoxoxoxoxoxxo

  25. thank you my dear for letting Anita know I have been trying to contact her. Your Kitchen is being redone!! Oh my I don’t really know how you can improve on it..but I just know it will be STUNNING!
    My daughter Sydney had a thought about you the other day…sent you an email…hope it was ok. Please don’t feel obligated..xoxoxo

  26. Good morning precious friend!

    I smell cinnamon rolls…yes, I do. WHERE ARE THEY? I hear the kettle whistling, I smell the cinnamon and I see a chair pulled out for me. I am ready my sweet friend! :) :) :)

  27. Good morning dearest heart!

    Any more cinnamon buns left? I think I may need one to keep my energy level for today:

    clean house.
    finish etsy orders.
    work out.
    entertain tonight.
    entertain tomorrow.
    go to school on Monday.

    Hmmmm….I think I can do it with your help!

    LOVE YA! Anita :) :) :)
