Vision...

Piper and I celebrated last night after signing the lease with sizzling rice soup and egg roles at our fave Chinese restaurant, so naturally we charged into our fortune cookies to see if good fortune was to be had...well, this one was mine...do ya think...!

...so now visions of settings dance in my head...
These are from Sisters' Garden, but...the idea's the same...have junk will travel and we got stuff,
as we plan to tear down our gazebo and rebuild for the garden setting planned at the new shop.
Piper will be there painting all weekend while I run the store...
and we know what I'll be doing...
packing my truck!
From this point on my truck will never go there without a FULL load...

Tony, the mall manager told us
that everyone out there is very excited about us coming on board,
when you have an established biz,
word travels fast...
as a matter of fact, Piper got an email yesterday
from someone who wants to put a bakery in out there
and wondered if there was a space...

and so it begins...
new life to a dead mall
if you build it
they will come...

I feel the good vibes, how 'bout you!!!

Good luck! Is it the mall Menards used to be in? I've never been there so I'll have to come check it out sometime when you are all moved in.

I think your gut feeling on this one is the best idea. I was out there today and a new life has been breathed into that daughter of yours. I loved seeing her being Piper again. I just have a good feeling about this also..... excellent way to start a new page in the Friends Candle Shed Book of Life...

It all sounds exciting. May be there is a change on the horizon for the mall now. Wish you the best..Julian
