New news!!

It's been  almost a year 'again', since I've posted, possibly that means I've been just 'that' busy.  But we have a lot of changes in Shabby Hattie's tea room.  I'm getting geared up to do a Pie Crust class just in time for the Holidays!  In fact, I'm doing private sewing classes and, mosaic classes by Carol  are on the horizon.  Carol and I are very excited about the new direction the tea room is taking.   So far, these new changes are being welcomed, and most people walk in and are awe!  Right now we're busily decorating for the holidays.  Last year, Shabby Hattie's Tea Room won the best decorated storefront!   Will they award it two years in a row?  Who knows, but we'll post pics of our efforts!

Where has the time gone???

A very good friend told me that I needed to be blogging once or twice a week. I said, 'Huh?  That much?  Come on!  I don't have that much time on my hands!'  Well, HELLOO...I decided my friend is correct. 
And then I logged into my blog, only to see how long it had been...A whole year...what a wake up!  Have I been that busy?  And without thinking twice...yes, I, we, have been that busy.   Hard to believe more than a year has passed since opening Shabby Hattie's Tea Room & Boutique.  We're asked on a daily basis, 'How long have you been open?  And we usually give the same response, 'You need to get to Parkville more often!'  We opened, November 4, 2009.  More than a year has flown by.  We've gone from 30 loose leaf teas to over 65!  We've added a  new sandwich to the menu, (chipotle chicken fiesta) and it's now, one of our most popular entrees.  We've added so much, to the bouTEAque...more tea pots & tea ware, jewelry and clothing accessories.   We were honored with Best Holiday Store Front 2010.  And to top it off...we now have a website!  Wheww!!  I should be checking my heart rate!
