261: rainy sunday

Can you believe it's really fall?

This little pile of gorgeousness is on the front porch at the Village Store:

Lucky for me, that means it's on the front porch of Yummy Goods, too!

Fall. >sigh<

I hardly had a summer. I love summer - I crave the heat. I'm such a coldie.

I do love fall though. And pumpkins.

And Trader Joe's hot chocolate made with soymilk, oh yum. Got some the other night, along with their new vanilla marshmallows. They are square and cute, so of course I had to have them. 

I hate to admit it, but I do watch a fair amount of television and I am  psyched for the new season. Heroes, The Office, Scrubs, and Pushing Daisies- especially!

How about some more pictures of the shop? Is that ok?

This week's incarnation of The Living Room:

Today was very quiet at the shop (rainy day) so I was especially happy that we have a cozy place to sit! I hope people don't feel weird when they come in and see me hanging out on the couch. I would like it, as a customer. I don't like people staring me down from the register, know what I mean?  

Cute stuff at the counter:

Yep, scrabble tile pendants! Everyone loves them.

Adorable change purses, The Best Candles Ever and handmade yummy lip balm.

We started working on the lighting today. I want it to be warm and cozy, like a living room. I put in a bunch of lamps and white Christmas lights. We are trying out fabric over the (very office-y) ceiling lighting. It definitely warms it up, but now we need to compensate for the loss of light. We'll get there. It's a work in progress. On sunny days, we do get a lot of natural light, which is lovely. 

In other news, Sugar Snap ships to stores in a couple of weeks! yay!
