Ah, nothing like a line up of mice. As we prepare for the 3rd Annual Witches’ Tea I was opening boxes and discovered this year’s bevy of beautiful….mice. The mice had their own little Halloween Ditty for you:
1 little, 2 little, 3 little furry mice…4 little, 5 little, 6 little funny mice…7 little, 8 little, 9 little sparkly mice…10 little Halloween mice (for your decor)!

There I was, unpacking loads of new goodies for the kids, box cutter in hand, paper on the floor all around….and then, a sound. It was “aah-hem” sort of thing. I turned and noticed all the little animals and their suitcases staring back at me. I was not alone. “Cow” was trying to talk to “Horse.” “Kitty” was smiling and waving at me. “Ballerina Bear” was trying to slip out of her straps to take to the floor, and everyone else was giggling…when I wasn’t watching.
No, I’m not insane. Yes, I’m probably considered more left brained than right. Yes, I hear conversations with all animals…living or stuffed. So, what is wrong with that? No, I have considered the fact I probably spend way too much time at the store!!
This is why I love what I do. I get to play with all the toys. Enjoy all the china. Relax with all the candles. What a life. Now, if you don’t mind, I have to get back to the kids. They are preparing a midnight race around the store and they need a checkered flag!
Retail is a wonderful thing, it is also a lonely endeavor at times – especially when you are balancing those bank statements and searching for the old MC deposit! But, when a customer comes in or calls and says we have the perfect item, I feel like I’m surrounded by thousands of great folks.
As for Lenox? I think she is just happy to be adored, have someone to play fetch with, have a spot in the front window and a willingness to try to keep our books balanced!
Tomorrow we start with all the new products we have in our store. Thanks for stopping, shopping and supporting daily. We’ll leave a light on for ya’!
