Monday in Tucson

I am feeling guilty sitting here in the sun and 70 degree temperatures while the rest of the nation is freezing and iced in. This is part of my 2 month recuperation per doctor's orders, "lay in the sun for more Vitamin D and get to a dry place to heal your lungs". I'm here! I don't have to look too far back to remember coming here, protesting hugely against the forlorn landscape, void of the tall green trees that I love. Now it is a necessity to escape the damp and mold. Am I ashamed? ...Yes!

So, between napping half the day, I have been stitching and hope to work on my photos to list more on Etsy and our website. Eileen & I are having too many new ideas to put onto one site! We're trying though. A new adventure has also presented itself. We are working with a new nursery business in downtown Lake Oswego, building their indoor space into a little shop that we hope the neighborhood will enjoy. The owner has never done retail merchandising, just beautiful plants and flowers, so we are really excited about mixing the two and learning from each other. We'll keep you posted on how that progresses.

Our 50% off sale was a huge success, so we hope to do another soon! Thank you for your support and encouragement in so many ways! On to 2010!!

Good to hear you are on the mend, I could do with some of your warmth as freezing here in England.

The new venture sounds good and great fun.

Take care.

Carolee, the next post will be just for you! Stay warm there. We have been seeing your terrible weather on our news. Prayers are with you. We have been fortunate on our west coast (I live in Portland, Oregon) but I hear that 2large storms are on the way. A nice welcome home!
