Hello from cold, snowy Chucktown!

Here it is the 13th of January and I have either been too busy to write or nothing has been going on so there is nothing to write about. Hmmm. Even I don’t know which is correct.

Ever since I took Emma’s Nook & Granny On the Go, the From the Heart Boutique in St. Charles has been one of the places where you could find me. This past weekend was the annual half price sale. Barb, the owner, usually holds this sale on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day; however, due to vacation schedules, this year’s sale was on Jan 10 and 11. We moved a lot of Christmas merchandise in two days! That sure makes getting the shop ready for the spring show a lot easier.

This year the spring boutique starts March 27 and runs for three weekends. That’s not that far away! We are open 9 am – 5 pm on Friday and Saturday and 11 am – 4 pm on Sunday. The last day is April 11, the Saturday before Easter.

We will have great garden goodies such as stepping stones and garden statues. Remember that beautiful red pottery I had in the fall? I will have some again plus some new … well, I can’t give it away just yet. Check back in a few weeks for a preview. Meanwhile, mark your calendars now for the spring boutique dates. You won’t want to miss the exciting new lines we have coming for spring!

It's way below zero today so I am staying indoors. Maybe I will actually clear a path through my sewing room so I can get to my machine! I have oodles of projects calling out to me.

Stay warm,
