Under my umbrella, ella, ella...ay, ay, ay.....

Yes, it has been a looooong week. Good, but long. And....I forgot Pink Wednesday!! Criminies!! I think what threw me off kilter was stopping to take time to spiffy up the Portland house for a showing on Tuesday. Do you know how hard it is to work on displays when your fingers are crossed for a house sale?!! Ha!

I've got to get going again so I'm leaving you with one lonely picture....taken last night as the last raindrop (crystal teardrop!) was hung. This is the April Showers! Oh, how I wish you could get the full effect. What fun!! May Flowers comes tomorrow as I scout for blossoms! Enjoy the day!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Oh my! Those parasols are darling...and what a great idea to dangle the crystals as rain drops. I am so sympathetic to the house selling situation-such a tough market for those of us waiting patiently to sell. Just seems to suck the creativity right out of me some days.

Oh, I almost forgot...I have added you to my sidebar so that I can keep up to date on all of the events (hope that's ok).

Oh, how I wish I could get the full effect too....I need some kind of teleporter so I can just show up on the doorstep....

Oh I'm going to get the full effect alright! I'm coming to see it for myself on Saturday morning! It is fantastic. Can't wait. See you then. ~Adrienne~

WOW Aleta!!! Everything looks amazing!! I am very sad to say that we are not going to be able to make it to the show. :o( Our electrician is coming this weekend and we may not have an another opportunity to get him back before our opening...and we can't have a sale in the dark. We know your sale is going to be a tremendous success! You and Bill better hire a few extra hands to deal with the "mob" that will descend on Flourishes. Congratulations!!
