witchy fun

This is what the old bank building looked like last Sunday.

Finally by Monday we had the floors stained and waxed but there is still a LONG way to go to pull off our Witches Night Out! This is our first attempt at something like this and with a "staff" of 3 people and 2 fine kittens; this was HUGE for us.

This was the beginning of one of our table arrangements. We gathered all of our finest witches flying apparatuses and made a bouquet that was in full broom!

We had plenty of spiders,rats, and crows...

and, of course, FANGS.

Our creepy old organ(a $20 antique auction find) found the perfect haunting spot on our sidewalk. It even played enchantingly creepy tunes!

We have so many great customers! the midst of all of our shenanigans, we managed to get our new windows, shutters, and window boxes in. What do you think of our new look?

We, the staff at Alice and Jay, would like to sincerely thank everyone who came and had a night out with us. Y'all made the evening worth the effort. We would also like to give a shout out to our new friends from Marianna, FL and Americus, Ga who took a Saturday drive to come and visit. And last, but certainly not least, a giant hug from the bottom of my heart to all of my family who came and worked and gave so freely. My heart grew 10 sizes yesterday! We are off to pack for Marburger Farms in ROund Top, Texas so follow along and we will show you the fun!

CONGRATULATIONS to Janelle from North Carolina! She won the pair of lamps from our giveaway with Miss Mustard Seed. We hope you love them.
