Coffee and Chocolate

In case you Peeps are wondering about my morning coffee.

It is a very difficult job, but someone has to work on this bag of Ghiradelli chocolates! I volunteered, knocking everyone else away, shielding them from the danger ahead. There are only a few left in the bag, so I think I have everything under control.

Whew.

The shop was so pretty on Saturday, prepared for Valentine’s Day. It was a good day! And speaking of Valentine’s Day, my dear sweet friend Jason bought me a baby guitar for the shop for Valentine’s Day. It is small enough to carry into the shop and not take up too much space. “Baby” guitar gives the impression of a child’s instrument, but many companies now are making baby and mini guitars that have great tone and are perfect for travel for adults.

I tried out a Martin,a Yahama, and a Taylor. It came down to the Taylor and the Yahama. The Martin was set up to play with an amp, and I did not need that. Also, I was not sure how I felt about the thickness of the neck of the Martin. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised with the tone of the Yahama, and the price was perfect, as far as I was concerned! Not that I think Yamaha is bad by any means. It is just that Jason has a baby Taylor himself, and I already knew how great it sounded, so I had already set the Taylor on a pedestal in my mind, I guess.

I love this little vintage tray. Made in Italy. Currently in the shop.

And these old fabric flowers. Ahhhhh.

Now, some things that have inspired me this morning.

Beautiful altered couture.

  1. The guitar is beautiful, Lynn! So thoughtful! Your shop has the neatest pretties items. And such varied soft colors of pink. Regarding your picture of those boots…I had a pair like those when I was in high school. (although I'm sure they were cheap). They were so slippery as my mom told me to buy snow boots…and snow boots they weren't..ha…Andrea
