Meet Button

We have a new addition to the shop we'd like you to meet.

This is Button. She's our brand new mouse-killer (in training). 

Emma put an announcement on Facebook saying we needed a shop kitty, and low and behold, Button arrived. All of us girls here are cooing and talking in baby voices and being ridiculous. She's so adorable though, can you blame us?? 

She's been sleeping in all the nooks and crannies behind our counter and she's currently watching the computer screen as I type, about to pounce on the cursor! Come on in and say hi to Button and the rest of us!

Auburn Art Walk

Lois at The Chocolate Shoppe in Downtown Auburn invited mom to be her guest artist for this month's Auburn Art Walk.  It was a great success and mom was able to share her work with so many new people.  If you'd like to go take a look, her work is still up!
