Can I have a vacation do over...please?

UGH...my vacation is almost over and I want a do over. I want another week off...but I do have to admit though that I do miss working in the Brickhouse and seeing and talking with our customers. BUT a do over would be great...I want ONE MORE week to get more things done around the house.
There is one thing that I HAVE to get done this week and that is getting any leftover Christmas things out of the Shop and then trying to fill the Shop back up with other goodies. I hate this time of year...not much happening during the month of Jan...we are in the "in between stage"...in between Christmas and Valentine's Day and Easter. For me it is hard to find goodies to fill the Shop during this time of the year...I would love to fill the Shop right now with Easter goodies but I KNOW...it is TOO SOON...but I can't wait...I love Easter/Spring. Maybe I should spend these cold months of Winter making more of the cement eggs that I made last year for the Shop.

~~Our Brickhouse cement eggs~~

 And I am already thinking about making some new Spring/Easter colors for our Brickhouse lights....just writing this is putting me in a SPRING mood. Hopefully I can keep the winter blahs away...I am going to think SPRING and with Spring comes PORCH SITTING weather....ahhhh!  Hmmmm?...Maybe instead of a do over, a fast forward to Spring would be perfect right about now!

I would be fine with another week. I have so enjoyed being lazy, staying up late, sleeping in. But that had to stop this morning. I'm ready for summer, lol! Anyway, I don't think it's too early for spring at the Brickhouse. Any store you go into right now will have Valentine, spring, and Easter things out. That's just the way retail works. Whatever you decide, I'm sure your customers will love their trip to the Brickhouse!

Have a delightful week~

Yup, this is that crazy time of year. We are going to concentrate on "generic" home decor goodies until it's time to put out spring. Hope you had a very Happy New Year, Dawn

Would it be terrible to be closed another week? Your customers would swamp you by the time you reopened!Dianntha

Patti, I know how you feel about desiring another week of time off. Women have to do so much thru the holiday time. So the actual time just flys by. I found your site on "A Primative Plot" site. I loved your porch decor. Smiles to you,Susie(She Junks)

Oh definitely not too early for Valentine's...and then there's the presidents days....Love decorating with Abe and George....and little hints of spring like nests and stuff....I think it could be fun filling the shop with "in-betweenness!" I LOVE those eggs!!! I WANT those eggs!! Boo Hoo....Why do I have to live so far away??? Wishing you a wonderful new year filled with joy, promise, and blessings....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
