This Week at the Shop! July 8, 2020

Hello sweetness!

I hope your week is sailing by, on water smooth as glass! Isn’t that how it should always be? In a perfect world and all?!

Speaking of smooth water, I posted a couple of pictures on Facebook, of my new love for kayaking.  Never mind we’ve had the kayaks now for three years!

What’s changed is my attitude!   Before, I would mentally map out a goal for how far I wanted to go.  Like it was my job…a chore…a self inflicted responsibility.

(I included a picture of my feet, so you’d know it was really me!)

I didn’t plan on it, but this week, when I got into the kayak, I told myself that I was going to take my time. It was my first time out this summer.  I gave myself permission, that if I wanted to stop rowing, then I would.  I wasn’t in a race or a competition.  By taking away my usual “Type A” expectations, I found myself enjoying myself so much more!  By the third morning, I had a mellow piano instrumental, playing on my phone, as I rowed.  Before I knew it, the hour had passed, leaving me feeling a wonderful contentment and looking forward to next time.

Now onto the really important stuff! Here we have the beautiful model, wearing Dylan’s darling top!  Yes, it’s on sale at the shop!  


Then, there’s me!  Wearing the same top (in large).

Smooth and sophisticated!  It was $130 and now $89! Yes, it’s a splurge, but so cute!

There are sale items throughout the boutique.  There isn’t one big sale rack.  They’re sprinkled throughout the racks, so it’s sort of like a treasure hunt!  Tomorrow, we’ll have a steaming party!  We got another fun box of clothes in today that need a little TLC.  (Don’t be jealous! Steaming clothes is not our favorite job, but it comes with the territory!)

Mr. Wonderful had me take his picture with the fishing poles.  He and Jill have fishing licenses this year and he was trying to convince her to come up and try her luck.  Stay tuned.  (I’m the kind of wimpy-wimp, that likes to find her fish at Whole Foods.  No eye balls, or unmentionables!)

Well kid, I think that’s about it.  It’s time to call it a night.  Until we meet again, take real good care of yourself!

    Hi Barbara! So fun always to read your posts and see what you are up to 😁. (BTW we love kayaking too 💕). Just a question for you: Do you carry all the FMP colors? I couldn’t find some that I want to order 🤔.

      Yes, we do carry all Fusion colors, while available. The pandemic has created many shortages, for Fusion Mineral Paint. We received a delivery this week and we’re happy to say our shelves are almost completely full!
