Such Good Friends

Beautiful bouquet
Delightful flower bouquet made by friend Kathleen and delivered for the shop by friend Fran. I think it looks great with the tall green bottle and lights.

Teddy Bears and Friends

Teddy Bears and Friends
We're getting so many new things in the shop that it's hard to pick just one thing to talk about. But the alpaca is always delightful, especially the Teddy Bear and Friends line of unique plush animals. So soft and cuddly!

We're heading into the warm summer season but there are lots of wonderful breezes here in Meadows of Dan. The Blue Ridge Parkway is busy and Meadows of Dan is hopping. I saw some nice peaches up in town this morning and some other lovely produce as well. I heard through the grapevine that Nancy's Candy has some wonderful new flavors in truffles!

This young fellow thought that our tractor seat stools were super cool and comfortable when he and his parents stopped by the other day.
