Yup, this is the ticket.

So pulled out the boxes of old,






hearts and such…

And so the DECORATING begins!

than a little Birthday  BREAKFAST  celebration!

With boxes and MORE boxes arriving daily,

the shop is FULL of   “R & R  GOODNESS”

So come in

  4. WAIT!!!!!!!! I MISSED THIS YESTERDAY???? HOW ON EARTH DID I MISS THIS????? ME, MOI, who always has her nose in everything, first thing?????

    THOSE CINNAMON BUNS ARE IT!!! And look, look at those sparkling hearts and that is your HAND!!! I SAW ROSIE’S HAND!! Dearest, you just made my morning. YOU DID. Oh, your crafty hands have made sparkles happen and look at the love you put into making those women who love you so LOVE YOU EVEN MORE…..what a treat for them to work in a shop with so much love oozing out of it in pretty ornies and little girl pretties but most of all, a boss who is a leader, a follower, a trend setter, the perfect example of hospitality. Just like OUR LORD.

    Well, that was a sugar/love high that will carry me through an interesting school day today. Thank you for your kind words. I must restore my faith in people only through God’s forgiveness. Off I go, but I am snatching a cinnamon bun NOW….catch me if you can!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

  7. Hi Rosie!
    Oh my ~ it’s F♥BRUARY! ALREADY!
    I love all your Rosie decorations! The hearts makeover was great! I love their iridescence!
    Your shop looks lovely! Are the little white birdies soaps? How I would love to visit Roses and Rutabagas! I know someday it may happen! My children and nieces and nephew are settling in all parts of the USA! My niece just moved to California! My other niece was just in Seattle interviewing for her residency. They’re all moving away!
    Your girlfriend party looks like it was a special time. Wishing you more joy always, dear ♥
    Blessings to you*

    At this holiday I’m always flooded with memories of wearing fluffy dresses and petticoats with fluffy hair to match.
