ok boys and girls...so much for blogging during my hiatus right?!
my last little note/post had me promising to attempt to become a contender in blogland...
i was filled with aspirations of starting to share my little tale with all of you through posts twice a week

in my head i told you all about olive's gypsy-girl ways...
answered all those swirling questions about why olive closed (the big "divorce" word goes right here)
shared with you all my personal sorted little adventures of what it's like to be divorced at 41 (ugh)
and suddenly single after 20 plus years of wedded bliss (ugh again)
trust me...there's lots to tell and i've become a one woman comedy act (just try installing your own toilet seat without swearing)

olive decided it was time to gypsy around again

the little girl that runs around the shop at night and gets into trouble is gonna give it another whirl...
olive has gone to paris!

shopgirls lani griffin & laurie lavy, together with master craftsman extraordinaire jason moore have teamed up to bring you....
Olive in Paris

oui! we are s000 excited and just about ready to flip our open sign

officially opening
Saturday, May 1st (may day)at 10:30 AM
shop with us at the top of the stairs inside Paris Envy
4624 N 7th Ave

it's a home-coming of sorts...
(i'll tell you someday all about how olive was originally supposed to open in this exact spot!)

we've been finding prizes to fill our shop (a few olive favs & a few new favorite finds!)

absolutely cannot wait to play dress-up with you...
see you May 1st!

hello lovely friends

most of you have certainly heard about the sad news at sirens...
from my heart to yours thank you for posting sweet messages to shelly and i on the sirens blog
bIg-0L-tHAnKs to all of you who have reached out personally with emails & phone calls
you keep reminding me daily of exactly what it is i love about being a shopgirl
no word yet from the powers that be on just how long it is going to be before sirens gets "humpty-dumpty-ied" back together again...

whilst i personally seem to have an out-of-my-hands, un-expected, un-determined amount off time off...
along with all sorts of crazy things to tackle on the "if only i had time" list...
i'm gonna devote some time to blog-land and give this blogging thing a whirl

i'm not a professional (this IS my first rodeo)
i can't promise great pics and wUn-der-fUll backdrops (not at first anyhoo)
i AM, however, going to see what olive's been up to and add a few sprink-lins' in about my personal "life-in-a-snow-globe" moments

so pop in for a read every now and again

maybe this time-off will be the perfect opportunity to catch y'all up on olive's antics
olive's been quite the gypsy girl...she's run around a few places with her missing boot!
who knows where and what she'll be up to next...
as for the shopgirl...well, i've had a few shakes of the snowglobe myself
so if you feel like giving us a read...

until the next post...
