It's Official!

Yippee!!  Summer slipped in while we were nagging at the rain to 'go away'! 
A rosy blush above the mountains and a chorus of robins and chickadees joined the rat~a~tat
of a downy woodpecker to wake me up this morning! 
I don't know who said this,

"There is no hope for a civilization which starts each day to the sound of an alarm clock."

but I tend to agree.  How lovely it is to move from cozy slumber to bustling day
when coaxed by nature's chorus!

Here at the shop, we have been waiting for these pretty days!  I love it when I can have both doors open and a breeze skitters through!  It's so fresh and welcoming when folks come in from the street to see what we are about!  And now we are all about the stars and stripes!  Flags, tea towels, and fun accessories to spunk up your summer decor. 
Oh! I just LOVE summer in Snohomish!!
This will be a busy weekend in town!  Craven Farm will start it off at 8:00 Saturday morning with their fun~fulled Tailgate Antique Sale!  They start early, so you can finish off your day scouting around town! 
Be sure to visit the Speckled Hen~ The door is open, come on in!
