Couldn't ask for any better.....

WOW....yesterday was our Christmas Open House at the Country Loft...a huge success in every way!!!
The weather was perfect - low 60's with a few clouds and a bit of sun.  For San Diego that is the perfect fall/winter day.   It was such fun to see our favorite shoppers arrive in hoodies, boots, long pants and scarfs.  We don't get to do that very often here in So Cal :)
This last week the entire crew of "elves" worked to get the shop ready leaving no detail unattended to.  It was such fun to see it come together.  I can't tell you all the oohs and ahas I heard or.. the phrase "I need to get one of those" but it was several times that's for sure!!! Our job was to get the trees up, the decorations out and the trees decorated with some wonderful ornaments - by the way - they were all for sale. The shop has "Christmas" in every corner....so the "eye candy" was to die for....
At the Loft our open house is called "Kit Day".  For many weeks prior to our Open House the days are filled with kitting some of our favorite things. I can't tell you how many different kits we had but it is always greatly anticipated to see what kits we selected. Trust me...they don't last very long!

So, let me take you on a tour of our great shop!  Hope you like what you see :)

Can't forget outside...Joe (the owner with his wife Sharon) tends to getting the house decorated with lights.  We do appreciate all you do Joe!!!!
 
Our trees are all different sizes (and all for sale).  This one is done with snowman.  How fun huh!!!
 
Here are two more.  All the houses on the tree light up!  Awesome!!!
 
My favorite spot...our mantel.  It is such a focal point in our store and this year was no exception!
 
A close up of one of our most popular kits!!  MERRY CHRISTMAS....
 
Our wool room (yes we have a room just for wool) was so much fun!!!
 
and lets not forget the kitchen :)  This tree was just adorable!
 
and the gang of elves....
Deby, Donna, Mindy, Jayne, Susy, Colleen Tina, Sharon and Kathy...
 
Hope you enjoy!!!  I will be back tomorrow and take you outside :)  well maybe Tuesday, I work tomorrow :)
 
Hope you have a great Sunday and do something fun!!!!  
 
Until later...
 
Remember - SMILE Always....
