Every time I open my front door, I admire the wreath that is hanging there. I have to admit, I didn't think I needed a wreath on my door. I have seen many wreaths on my friends and family's houses, but just never thought of putting one up on mine. A couple of weeks ago, when working at the store, I pulled out 2 wreaths from a bin that someone had dropped off to consign. They were both GORGEOUS! I debated on which one to buy and chose the larger one. I turned it over, looked at the twigs and fell in love with the white, red and orange berries that were on it. I was hooked. I had to have it. I stopped at the Dollar Store on the way home and picked up an over-the-door wreath hanger and put it up. It looks great. The front of the house feels 'dressed up' now and the colours can be seen from the road. I can't wait to change the wreath for each season! I've already started shopping around for a Christmas wreath to put up in December. Treat yourself and get one! I know you will enjoy it.
I love talking with my customers. They all have great ideas on how to spend time with friends and giving me ideas for things to do on weekends or evenings.
One idea I received from a customer is to hold a "Swap Meet" at my house! I can't wait. The idea is that you invite girlfriends over, they all bring clothes, shoes, purses, books, accessories that they no longer use; you put them in a pile and everyone picks out what they would like. You go home with a bunch of new things without spending any money! Plus, you can feel good giving away, or trading, things you don't want anymore. I've just sent out the invitations - I'm hoping there will be some new size 8 shoes coming over next week.
When you're going to a holiday party this December, buy an inexpensive tray or serving platter at Snazzy Seconds and arrange the food on it and bring your food with you. You can leave the tray there for the hostess. He/she will appreciate the 'gift' and you don't have to worry about washing it and bringing it home!
