I just want to share with you the state of my stockroom...
Needless to say, there are a lot of tired bodies walking out the door at the end of the day, sometimes too long of days.
Although we have about 8 times the space in our new location, the stock room is fairly comparable to my former Yardley historic basement! I guess we've gained a bit of height to work with, but all in all, it's downright crazy in that back room!
There is hope around the corner. I guess I should say hope coupled with overwhelming pressure or time, effort and creativity. In one short week, the magic begins. My fabulous team of 4 creative work engines,+ Connie + Kara+Casey+Natalie+Mariah , puts the Mission Impossible in motion.
I'll be documenting the progress, so stay tuned.
In the mean time, I'm heading for Denver for the wedding of my darling niece, Charlotte Wood. You'll be hearing more about that too, as I'm the mission impossible team (along with my sister, Denise and several other helpers), for the decos and flowers. I return on Sunday and the holiday setup begins on Monday. Mercy!
But not for long...another shipments is dropped. Connie threatens to quit.
Priced inventory goes on a shelf by color. This will help the sorting process prior to set-up. Ladders, please!
Another dumpster pickup, please. Now. Please.
Bottle brush trees fresh from the tree farm!
Check out these coral ranunculas potted in vibrant mercury glass containers. Several of these down the center of your holiday table should do the trick!
...more progress=more trash. Trash, trash, trash, and more trash. Connie threatens to quit again.
And that's the pictorial of the behind the scenes drama at Black-eyed Susan. One more week till D-Day. I'm pretty sure Connie will give her notice at least 8 more times. Maybe 20.
Hang in there, Connie. Kara, keep up the good work. My team is awesome!
