Have you ever walked into a building or room and felt it's energy? Actually felt it as it wrapped around you and made you feel alive? That is how I felt yesterday walking into the Plum Tree.
Cindy and her friends have been working hard making the Plum Tree one of the cutest shops in Georgia. ( Actually, I think it is the cutest shop. )
Remember I told you about Dawn and her incredible generosity? Well, yesterday we met at the shop and put some things in her room. I had just a few things to put it in; a few bags of clothespins, chalkboard tags (modeled after tags I saw on Ciel D'orage- scroll down to Jan. 10), two altered vintage plates, and a few other things. The wonderful thing is that all of my things melded well with Dawn's. Yay! (I am still cameraless, else I would be showing them to you!! I would also show you the adorable apron that Dawn gave me. As soon as I get a camera, there will have to be a post with nothing but pictures!)
The whole time we were there, I felt my heart beginning to lift. I felt inspired and connected. Dawn and Cindy have that effect on people. They just make you smile. And that has pervaded into every nook and cranny in the shop. I can tell that this is going to be a good place for me, surrounded by wonderful women who encourage each other.
Thank you, Dawn and Cindy, for who you are- warm, kind, open and generous. I think we are going to have a lot of fun together!!
