Auburn has now been among the tampers and excavators for a month, and as I write this the rain is pouring down for the third day in a row.
Where rain can play havoc on many events and business ventures, it certainly takes the biggest toll on construction sites. As much as the upheaval of construction is sometimes a bit much for my business, I can see how frustrating it can be for a crew to complete their work when the heavens open for days on end. It can't be easy.
This morning as I gazed out at the puddles and deep craters in the road in front of the store, I decided to grace the front of the store with one of the most elegant wedding gowns I've carried in the store since opening. This piece is reminiscent of the gown Jackie Bouvier wore when she wed JFK in 1953. Since it came into the store- I haven't been able to stop staring at it...so why not share it with everyone who steps into the store?
I encourage you all to find the beauty in everything around you- particularly the people in your life. Give them a reason to smile by lighting a candle to sit by as you drink tea together, add flowers to your kitchen table so your friends and family have some colour to inspire them at the beginning and end of their day or wear your favourite vintage gown to do the housework (yes-I have done this!). Be happy! Inspire!
I'm off to stock the store with more beautiful things! My next challenge is to find a pair of vintage Wellington Boots to pair with the gown!
