The tale goes something like this...a Robin viewed in flight means a very wealthy year. A Robin in a tree is a pretty good sign too. Well you can tell where this is going, a Robin on the ground, hmmm, not so good. So every year in the Spring I gaze upwards as much as possible. I do believe in this way of predicting the years wealth, because the year my first Robin was in flight I did make some money. I think that was in the 80's, (didn't everyone have money then?) Anyway... Last years Robin was hopping on the ground, ( I waited till it took flight, I figured it couldn't hurt). The year was good but did have ups and downs.
OK, that brings us to this week. I still had not seen my first Robin of this Spring as of Friday, so I was diligently viewing upward when ever I was out and about. Remember I do believe in this stuff... My Dad is half Black Foot Indian and some how it doesn't seem that far fetched to think of it as a reasonable way to predict the year. Friday evening I hurried out to the high school for a function and...turned the corner...and what did I see...Robin road kill.
I'm no longer a believer!

The small table behind the chair was an auction find for the shop. I decided it had to come home before someone bought it and I had regret. I'm usually pretty good about resisting, however the table is perfect for the room. As promised, here are some more pieces from my personal Hull collection. Kitchen pieces, mixing bowls and casseroles.

My cheering continued when these markers were planted yesterday. (notice the pink) They mark the spaces throughout our Hamlet for the arrival of sidewalks. Hooray!

Here at HiHo we have one room that celebrates my love for things Western: the Homespun and Hearth Room. These shots are from the HiHo web site. http://www.hihohome.com/ I always try to offer unique old and new items with a Western flair.
Why not surround yourself with things that make you feel like a kid? Even if it's just a cookie...

We like to have an assortment of ribbon around at all times. We even have special HiHo ribbon on our price tags. Placing bows on merchandise in the shop helps customers to visualize the item as a gift. This vintage table top children's dresser would be a great jewelry box and a super gift. Featuring a bow on this bust makes it playful and relaxed. Serving up treats with a bow makes it so much more festive. Who can resist a teddy with a bow? It's because we believe everything is better with a bow, that we finish every gift sale with tissue, ribbon and a bow. The girls and I wanted to remind you again to vote for HiHo in the March issue of Hudson Valley Magazine for best Christmas in the Valley. We were out and about today and the issue is available everywhere! (Be sure to vote for at least 25 businesses or your vote won't count.) We will also remind you to comment on post..100+ to be in HiHo's give-a-way!
The next time you're stepping out ask yourself, would this look better with a bow?

Hand painted and in very good condition this framed Lion's Club honor roll has the most charming pink boarder.I like to imagine the father that handed out the new cigars from this pink box.
I let Humphrey pick his favorite pinks from the shop too. A pretty pink food dish, a pink vintage squeaky dog toy and a friend who doesn't bark sitting on a pink pillow.
To continue having fun take a look at Beverly's blog...
