This year I had an opportunity to get away and shop for the store in Las Vegas. I was excited to be in a new place for some new ideas and inspiration. After the holidays I like to regroup my ideas, goals and dreams for the store. Having a break usually does that. I plan for the whole year. If you have ever been to my store, you know I love to decorate. Sometimes I even have themes. I have decorated with scarecrows in fall, winter I have rooms to match the color themes and tree decor, and spring garden and flowers!
The marketplace had three buildings of home decor, gifts and furniture.
Pretty awesome stuff and it was pretty exhausting too. It is an art to shop for so many different holidays for the year, It can be mind boggling. I am still learning. Vegas didn't disappoint. Lots of eye candy!
Old and new, home and gifts. It was hard to choose.
The last day in Vegas I was able to get away and fulfill a lifelong dream. Every since I was little and saw the Brady Bunch go to the Grand Canyon I wanted to go. Do you remember that episode? OK it was a long time ago.
Well the weather was very cold. It actually snowed. It was too cold to go to the south side. So I didn't make it to the National Park but I did make it to the west side. The side the Indians own. It did not disappoint. In fact it was breathtaking.
I also walked out on the Skywalk. A glass bridge if you will, that overlooked Eagle Rock. It was a bucket list moment.
The was a picture of a picture showing it.
I went with my friend Patti. We got some great pictures. I can't show them all. Some of my favorites a guard took. I sat on a rock that was at a trail. It looked like I was hanging off. I would absolutely NEVER do this if it was dangerous.
I also got to see the Hoover Dam and the Joshua tree forest on this trip.
I never have seen a Joshua Tree. This excited me.
The Hoover Dam was amazing too.
That night I visited Fremont street and watched some great live music and a wonderful light show.
Had a blast and found some great things for the store. I can wait for you all to get a look at the goodies like these beautiful handmade chokers!!
My year started off right. Living up to my WORD of the year!
Come shop Tues-Sat 10a-5p!!
