What a beautiful day it is here on Whidbey, with summer warmth in the sunshine, and hints of autumn in the shade and the breeze. My gardens are still bursting with flowers, vegetables and herbs; but I have picked the first orange sugar pumpkins, field grasses are golden, and finches and pine siskins are delighted with my inability to keep the cosmos tidy!
This is going to be just a short note to let you know I’m going to take a two week business break this month. I will be closing my shop to new orders the evening of Sunday, September 5, and will reopen on Monday the 20th. Orders placed between now and Sunday will be mailed September 6, or will be available for pick up on Wednesday the 8th. If you would like to pickup next Wednesday, please contact me prior to ordering for a code to remove postage from your order.
It has been an intense summer in many ways and it seems that intensity will remain and possibly grow into fall. I need some quiet time to plan for the Harvest and Holiday seasons ahead; time to do a quick inventory, blend teas, and make salves and soaps, and other things. I’m also looking forward to time to relax, read, and even take a watercolor class!
While closed the shop will transition to autumn, and when I reopen on September 20, the Harvest Collection of teas and gifts will be available to you.
Take good care! Be safe and well.
