Some of you might be thinking ....."where have you been?" or "you're so lazy not to post every day." LOL ~ I assure you I haven't been being lazy ~ just insanely busy!! Busy is good cuz a lazy person is like a bowl of soggy cereal it's just BAD! I can't even fathom eating a bowl of soggy Lucky Charms. It would just be painful. http://www.generalmills.com/Brands/Cereals/LuckyCharms.aspx
SO much has been going on! Chris and I decided to convert half of the lower level of our inn, MOUNT VICTORIA BED & BREAKFAST INN into a store!! We're anxiously waiting on our fabulous web designer to update our web site and Facebook page, which will each have a link to SHOPPE MOUNT VICTORIA!! www.mountvictoria.com http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mount-Victoria-Bed-Breakfast-Inn/113534055351711
The name ~ SHOPPE MOUNT VICTORIA! Play on words - get it?!? :) The store will reflect our love of home, antiques and life! :)
The grand opening is Friday, August 5th and we are beyond excited! We have partnered with over 80 AMAZINGLY TALENTED artisans across the U.S. and Europe that has resulted in a large, eclectic array of unique handmade items not found elsewhere in Eureka Springs or in the United States as a collection. From super kewl organic alien glow in the dark soap for kiddos to upcycled wine racks made from wine crates to .....SO much fabulous stuff!! http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=171984989532094 "Yes! We Ship!"
We're opening the doors at 11A on August 5th with SHOPPE 'N SIP from 5P-8P! You can shoppe, nibble on the gourmet cupcake bar (made by our pastry chef, Lori Renko of "Eureka Sweets") and sip on my bubbly champagne punch! http://www.eurekasweets.com/
Thirsty? Here's the recipe for the bubbly champagne punch we'll be serving!!! Yummmy!!! http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/drink/views/Pomegranate-Champagne-Punch-240761
There will also be a photo booth area with a DIVINE banner welcoming people to have their picture taken and grab one of the red rubber clown noses to be silly and fun! (I'll post lots and lots of pics!!)
Gotta run - tons of merchandise to tag today - it's like Christmas every day here but Santa drives big delivery trucks, not a sleigh!! http://www.squidoo.com/top-christmas-gift-ideas
