We Made the Wall!

You may remember this photo from a previous post....

Dave & Lisa Blodget came back and painted our store and some of our furnishings right on the wall!  How cool is that?  If you are coming in from the East this is on the side of our building.

And as a special treat to our fellow bloggers  URBAN TWIST jewelry is 25% off this week.  Just tell Linda you read it on the blog!

Here's a green tip for the week:  With all the rain we've had of late, we have to mow more often.  If you mow often, let your clippings lie.  They add nitrogen to your soil (so you don't have to add it later).  If you do pick up the clippings,  put them around your garden plants,  to use as mulch.  It helps retain moisture, keeps down the weeds, and you won't have to water as much.  At the end of the season you can dig it in to your garden to make the soil richer.  They also make a great layer to a compost pile.
