i tried moving the counter last week and i ended up moving it back. so really all i accomplished... well... i added some scratches to a floor that already needed repainting.

sometimes i throw things in a bowl or box and call that organizing or cleaning.

meet stella

stella is the other store cat.
he (yes, stella is a HE) was given away when his owner had to move into a un-pet-friendly apartment.
he has lived in ohio, west virginia, kentucky, and maybe some places we don't know about.
stella and kitty have lived together for about 6 years, but stella's official age is a mystery.
a grumpy old man one day, a sweet lover the next, stella has an attitude and his mood changes on a whim.
if you stop by and really want to pet him, you should pet his head and not his belly.
stella can often be found on the counter or under a rack of clothes.

sew sew day

i've been working on lots of new dearest inez pieces for the shop today.
i actually like standing and sewing because it hurts my back less, so sewing on the counter is fine by me.

day to day

an older gentleman wearing a bandana stopped to use our front window as a mirror for grooming his salt and pepper locks today.
things get exciting around here on tuesdays.

meet kitty

kitty is one of our two store cats.
yes. they live here.
and yes. they love it.
kitty was born in toledo, ohio and raised by random feeders outside of a warehouse. she has lived in ohio, west virginia, and kentucky. a mover and a shaker of about 8 years old. she is a little lover. approach her with caution and she will stick around for a bit. kitty can often be found sleeping in the fitting room, or sun bathing in the front window.
