Total sales for the weekend? $1.
(now you know why I think about closing for the winter)
The store was, um, quiet, so I did a lot of reading.
Saturday afternoon my husband, seeing my developing bad mood, (why did I think it was a good idea to open a store?) watched the shop for a while, and I took a walk around the village of Margaretville. First I went in the library and my mood immediately started to improve. Our house is in a rural area midway between Margaretville and Andes (which I wrote about here), so I think of country when I think about the Catskills, but the many small villages that dot the region (and all of upstate New York) are filled with charming old houses, such as these in Margaretville.
They will be even prettier when spring comes with its buds, blooms and blossoms.
Notice the Victorian dollhouse on the porch. (Click on pictures to enlarge.)
I was quite taken with this sculpture.
And this house. A purple house and an extra hour of light make everything look better.
