One for Each Month of the Year

Wow, it's been crazy busy around here.  Getting all stocked and ready for Valentine's Day and, truthfully, the store does look a little picked over post holiday, and it is the start of a New Year and we need to make it look all pretty again.  And all that takes a ton of time.  So I'm trying something new this year.  Instead of going to the gift show in New York this winter (which takes well over a week), I'm going to check out the Fancy Food Show in SF and go to the Design Show in Las Vegas (a little experiment)....but I still need to buy all the basics, so instead of NY , I booked a little room at the Coast with a view of the ocean and the sound of the waves and hooked up my laptop and here I am.  And curiously, I find myself making drawings of the twelve flicker feathers instead of
perusing online catalogs.  Which, I suppose, is just fine for me to give my workaholic tendencies a little rest and do a little dreaming.  Plus some crazy old timer I met on the beach yesterday gave me a little class on how to read the coastline for signs of gold and showed me how to pan.  Do you think that means I ought throw a few touches of gold into the store here and there during the coming year?  And perhaps black sand as a little motif too?   This is my brain on vacation.
(PS - wonderful little secret, the coast is warm and sunny in January)
