Open House Weekend and A Sunday Shadow Shot

What a great weekend - not only was the weather perfect for Open House, we had a fun, relaxing time visiting with customers and sharing decorating ideas with them! We are happy that the store looks all decorated "oh-so fall!" (now we just need to get going on our own homes!!)

Thursday night we have such a great time with Catherine Reiter of Healthy Bakes by Catherine. Not only did Catherine bring her signature "happy" brownies (which are out of this world), but she brought her breakfast cookies and granola that we sold all weekend long at the store! Catherine once again amazed us with four pesto recipes that were so delicious - we couldn't stop dipping our zucchinis and crackers in them! The bean dip was soooooo good! We will share it next week with you (forgot to bring the recipe home to type it in....sorry!!)

And now for our SUNDAY SHADOW SHOT.....

We loved this shot of the field of soybeans behind the store. It's the perfect "Fall" shot!!
As always - visit Hey Harriet to see what other fun and unusual shadow shots are being submitted this week!!

What an adorable looking store you have! Looking forward to the bean dip recipe next week. Please feel free to share the 'happy brownies' recipe too ;D

Great shadow shot! I think soybean shadows may just be a first for SSS! Happy Sunday :)

I believe you're right Harriet! First time for soybean shadows, first time for colour shadows and a first time video of a shadow! All with this week's participants!

Great shadow shot you two!

Open House looked like a lot of fun and food always looks delicious no matter where you serve it! lol

Have a great weekend!
