GETTING READY FOR SPRING???
YES, I AM GEARING UP FOR THE OPENING OF LIZZIESRAGGS PRIMITIVES THIS SPRING. I HAVE ALREADY STARTED MAKING NEW DOLLS AND AM HEADING FOR A TRADE SHOW IN PA. SOON. HAVEN`T BEEN TO A TRADE SHOW THERE SINCE THE 80`S WHEN MY SISTER-IN-LAW AND I OPENED A VERY TINY SHOP CALLED "THE PINK COTTAGE". YES, IT WAS PINK! ACTUALLY IT FIT ONTO A TRAILER WHICH WE USED TO GET IT FROM POINT A TO POINT B. THE DAY WE OPENED OUR DOORS TO THE PUBLIC , OUTSIDE OUR SHOP SAT A PINK 55 FORD CROWN VICTORIA. WHAT A COINCIDENCE!! SINCE OUR SHOP WAS LOCATED ON PROPERTY BESIDE A FROZEN ICE CREAM BLG. EVERYONE OR SHOULD I SAY A FEW PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS THEIR NEW BATHROOM FACILITY. NEEDLESS TO SAY WHEN THEY CAME TO PEEK INSIDE THEY INSTANTLY KNEW IT WASN`T. WE RAN THE SHOP FOR THREE YEARS. I NOW HAVE A QUAINT PRIM SHOP IN PART OF OUR SHED WHICH IS ATTACHED TO OUR 160 YEAR OLD HOME. IT IS UNIQUE FOR WE CARRY A SELECTION OF ONE OF A KIND ITEMS WHICH WE MAKE. WE ALSO HAVE LOCAL CRAFTERS MAKING SPECIALIZED PRIMS FOR OUR SHOP. WE PLAN TO RE-OPEN IN MAY. I WILL BE ADDING MORE ABOUT THE OPENING WHEN TIME GET CLOSER. HERE I AM THINKING SPRING WHEN WE AREN`T YET INTO FEB. HERE IN MAINE WINTER CAN GO INTO APRIL. UGH!! ONE LAST MENTION . MY HUBBY AND I SAW THREE ROBINS ON OUR APPLE TREES ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO AND THEN MORE RECENTLY WE SAW A FLOCK OF THEM. THEY SAY EARY BIRDS GET THE WORMS BUT THESE ROBINS ARE A BIT EARLY DON`T YOU THINK?. TALK NEXT TIME. LIZZIE FROM LIZZIESRAGGS
Its hard to believe that it is already the middle of February. Time has a way of disappearing like a blink of the eye! I guess the older you get the faster it goes. Since we are still in winter lets have some more snow! Our snow around Maine is going very fast. Since we do snowmobile some and have a camp further north in Maine where usually snowmobiling is great we are all praying for those white flakes. Vacation week is the time we go with our grandkids and their parents. We have such a great time. In the meantime I am making new things for my website lizziesraggs and thinking Spring creations. Hard to get in that mood but I`m trying. Hope to hear from you and share what your all doing to get through this season.
