Yesterday was all about Lucketts. I went down there to get my room ready for the open house. (Minus the sofa. Poor Ruthie was up until 3:30am on Thursday working on that thing and just couldn’t make it to Lucketts in time, so she’s bringing it early tomorrow and will help me haul it up the stairs. Talk about above and beyond.) I did have some great help today, though, and we got the place looking sparkly and ready for Christmas.
OK, I have to explain this tree topper. I know it’s ridiculous on that dinky tree. I had planned on getting a lush, live tree, but it just wasn’t going to fit and the thought of dragging it up the steps and everything that was involved just didn’t seem worth it. So, I pulled this little guy out of my basement and the paper star I had intended to use on a huge tree looks rather silly. Have a good chuckle and let’s move on.
Here are my awesome helpers…Kerry and Rachel. Aren’t they dolls? Of course, they look all cute and I was in my usual hoodie and chucks. Oh well. We had a really nice time together chatting it up.
I popped in on Karen’s room and snapped some pictures for her. It looked amazing, of course.
I ended up buying that large mercury glass pedestal and cloche from her as well as a couple of small ones. It was a real splurge, but I’ll use them a lot for my Christmas photo shoots.
I also ran into two other readers, Marian and Karen (hm, those names sound familiar), both from Utah, but not together. They were both so sweet to come to Lucketts while in the area on other business. I hope they found some goodies that will fit in their suitcases. Another reader of my blog is also working behind the counter at Lucketts now. Kasey (sp?) left her “day job” and is now doing something she’s really excited about. Good for her.
Then, we got a real treat. We were able to tour the design house, which wasn’t open to the public, yet. I have no words for how stunning it looks. I’ll just show you.
I suggest you sit down. Maybe get a cup first to catch all of your drool.
It was awesome to see it before the mob descends. I can’t wait to share all about the event and I have some other pieces of news as well.
