Baby It’s Cold Outside
In Vermont today it’s 10 degrees and going down.
I like to include as song for your listening pleasure while you read. I’ve heard about 12 versions this year, this is a favorite: Baby It’s Cold Outside
Every year at this time the same thing happens.
First of all it gets cold. Baby It’s Cold Outside!
I don’t know why I feel shocked by this: I’ve lived in Vermont for almost twenty years, and although that doesn’t make me a Vermonter, I shouldn’t have that surprised doe in the headlights feeling every time it happens. (Sadly, I’ll never really be considered a Vermonter. Even my daughter who was born here is not really considered a Vermonter because, as I have been repeatedly told over the years: just because a cat has kittens in the oven, it doesn’t make them muffins)
Second, every year I’m thinking I have plenty of time and then all of the sudden Christmas is almost here and I feel totally not ready. My cookies aren’t made, I’ve done very little shopping, the stocking stuffer dilemma is looming and my customers are clamoring for special orders. No matter how well I think I planned for the season there is always that one item that everyone wants and I struggle to keep in stock.
This season has been year of the vest at boysenberry. I have sewing them madly the last couple of weeks, struggling to keep any in stock. I spent the last few days cranking them out and have a pretty good stock ready for this week, which is usually my biggest sales week of the year.
Popular colors have been the jewel tones: Deep Red, Royal Blue, and Ultra Violet. The cooler Ice Blue, Teal, and Lime green a close second. See All Vests
Looking forward to this busy week, it always ends up to be so much fun to help all of you fill your Christmas giving needs.
As always, peace, Beth
