For The Cinnamon Stick that is a GOOD thing!  Yesterday was spent redoing the store - not always an easy task as what you picture in your mind, sometimes just doesn't work....and it was one of those days!

It is Gardenthyme starting this week - as the weather starts getting nicer (today high of 72 degrees, tomorrow 59)  I get over anxious to plant the seedlings and filling the containers in the gardens.  I  KNOW it is way to early...15th of May is the rule around here and even then it can get quite cool at night. 

Our herb plants will arrive on May 17 - 18 for our "Spring Tea".  We are doing things different this year - having a Spring Tea instead of our Herb Faire...putting the tent up in the side yard and having an herbal feast of goodies. (at least that is what the garden fairies said)!!  Like I said..."nothing stays the same" and that is a "good thing" !

I have stamped lots of "herb spoons" - and still hammering away!!

Just wanted to stop in and wish you a blessed Easter...it is a beautiful day and we will be celebrating with our children and grandchildren...(at our son' house...ours is way too small for 10 grands running around..) 

All the leftover Easter is tucked away and some display pieces were moved from upstairs to down and downstairs to up....I will have lots to do tomorrow when I open the store to redo !!  It will be Gardenthyme at The Cinnamon Stick starting tomorrow...love this time of year when everything is blossoming (even the dandelions)!!

Stop in and see what we are up to - always a surprise - even to me!!

...but I didn't answer the phone!  Seems we were spared the white stuff but not the freezing temperatures!  What a year of "unusual" weather - (I am being kind)!!
This is the last few days to purchase Easter gifts....we will be open Thurs. thru Sat. 10 am to 5 pm!  Then....SPRING will be filling the store!! 
I finished the "gifts" for our SPRING TEA (wear your garden hat to receive one)!!  Now I have some work to do to get ready for our workshop this Friday and then make plans for a Mother's Day gift workshop.  More on that later! 
Wanting to wish everyone a very Happy Easter - We are so blessed ...

Is winter over and spring here....I am looking out my window and the woods are starting to turn "green" - slowly but it sure looks promising!
Daffodils are showing their pretty yellow faces "everywhere" you look...love them!!
The store has been busy and keeping me on my toes.   There are still some goodies to purchase for unique Easter gifts - some really cute bunnies too.  AND, don't forget our delicious dip mixes for your Easter hor'dourves !! 

I had the best visit ever Sunday with a Facebook friend - Gail and Paul McFadden from Manasquan, New Jersey.  They own a Bed and Breakfast there  - the Nathaniel Morris Inn - and I can't wait to visit!
http://www.nathanielmorris.com/   I only wished we lived closer, cause I would love to "hang out" with Gail...oh I bet we could get into some fun antique trouble !!

Maybe we could get a group together...stay at a B & B here and just spend two days antiquing...might have to work on that !!

Update on Raelyn - Her post op visit went very well - everything was healing nicely.  She is sitting up on her own and playing with her toys - and smiling.  However - she just doesn't like to eat...a big problem as she needs to gain weight - so please keep those prayers coming that she starts eating better.   Hugs to you...

Gail and me....
 Raelyn playing...
 ..our last wire egg tree...come and get it!!

      It's all about the birds and flowers -
Hi Country Friends,
After a  too "long"  hiatus we will start our workshops again.   Our next workshop will be -
                                          Friday, April 18
                                              6 pm to 9 pm
                                               Cost: $12.00
                                       (all supplies included)
These pictures do not do the projects justice as I wanted to get this email out today and don't have the supplies to make "great" samples here at home.  but by the 18th we will have lots of goodies for you to create fun Posie Pockets and birds for your Springthyme decorations.   We will make as many as time allows and/or supplies last. 

There are many pretty papers to choose from for the Posie Pockets and the paper flowers . (and lots of vintage buttons)!!  Ric rac and cotton lace will also be available to dress up the pockets.
The birds can be made using our many different card stock papers.  These are so much fun to hang or sit on a branch.  Perfect to put on your Easter tree or one of those branches you are needing to clean up in the yard!!
I will post better pictures by Friday on our blog  -----www.thespicecupboard.blogspot.com and our Facebook.  However if you are interested please let us know as soon as you can as there are only 6 seats now available.
