Learning Quickly... Showroom #114 Update

My Friend Pamela and I in front of her Beautiful Showroom at THE BRASS ARMADILLO WEST.

My Showroom #114 Updates...


Even though Thanksgiving and Christmas weren't yet here, one thing I'm learning quickly is that when you're Working Retail you have to get an early start on the Holidays for Display and Inventory representing them.
So there has been a flurry of Activity among the Dealers at THE BRASS ARMADILLO WEST in recent days to begin Styling and bringing in the Inventory for Christmas.  Each day it seems we're in there doing a lil Somethin'~Somethin' for the Holidays that are in the not too distant Future.  I'm fortunate that I have Good Friends and Mentors who have a wealth of Experience and Talent that are taking me under their Wing and offering Sage advice about what to do, how and when to do it.   It's a Learning Opportunity, a lot of Fun, coupled with a lot of Work... but there is Joy in the doing of what you Love and I Intend to keep the Joy in the Process of this as I take it to the next level.
The Man and I spent the Morning of Halloween decorating the 1961 Vintage 6-foot Aluminum Tree in my Showroom with my Dolls Of The World Collection.  It seemed a bit odd decorating a Christmas Tree on Halloween Day I must say.  But I could get used to this amping up of each Holiday in Advance for the benefit and convenience of Customer's having ample time to do their Holiday Decor & Gift Shopping and thus having ample time to then Decorate their Personal Spaces with it for the Holidays & work their way through their Gift Lists... or just be Inspired by the Vignettes we Create.   I know that I have been Enjoying and doing that for years as I look forward to each Favorite Shop and Event starting to Decorate and offer Inventory that is Holiday Inspired, well in advance of each Holiday, so that I could get a jump start at Home and sufficient Inspiration for whatever Theme we decide upon and thoroughly Enjoy the Holiday Ambiance & Enchantment it all Creates.
So... as the Autumn and Halloween Decor come down at the Antique Mall and other Stores... the Christmas Decor is now going up or is already in place.  But I shall be Savoring and Reveling in my Home Autumn and Halloween Decor for quite a while longer... as I await Inspiration and for the day after Thanksgiving to begin the Process of ushering Christmas in at Home...
