Fingers Crossed

So tonight is the big night. What- you say, Halloween isn't until Friday night?

No, tonight is the night that we go to our liquor board hearing. Hopefully this time around we will get our license to open the wine shop (that we've been working on for about 2 years now, geez!)

We've been quite confident that this will happen so we've been working on getting the space ready. Hopefully we'll open by the first week in December.

A couple of shots of the store in progress.

It's huge, it's gorgeous and way cool. We chose the colors of bright avocadoish green, deep, deep plum brown and a brighter orangish yellow for the architectural elements in the base. Hence the colors in the logo above.

If this doesn't work I guess we'll just have to turn it into a super trendy clothing boutique. No size 0's will be carried however. That size just pisses me off!

The theme was red- so I pulled out all the stops.

This table design was one that I did as part of a recent fundraiser. I took the "Red" theme literally. Well, with a splash of silver.

Red lamps

Red cloths
Red roses

OH- NO WONDER.......

Yesterday was the 29th anniversary of my 20th birthday and you know what I found out?

It was Simon Cowell's as well- same Date and age.
I'm not quite sure how I feel about that but....I think that may explain allot regarding my behavior these days.

Thank you all for your warm wishes and emails. You have no idea how much I appreciate it all. You're the best.

BTW- my son has moved to Costa Rica. You can follow his adventures here
