SEPTEMBER- A RACE TO THE FINISH LINE!

That's sure what it feels like! All of a sudden you realize, there's only four more weeks left to summer break! In other words; season is just around the corner and I don't have enough inventory!!! It went by so fast! I'm not sure how, but between the visiting, the beach days, boating, going out…

FEBRUARY IS ALL ABOUT LOVE!!

FEBRUARY IS ALL ABOUT LOVE!!! And I am LOVING IT!!! This month represents VALENTINES DAY, and thoughts of love are every where! So naturally I am in high gear wire wrapping heart shaped stones I cut over the summer months. Guys are out shopping for their gals, and visa versa. Some people say it is…

OCTOBER – GETTING BACK TO WORK!

   …Down here October means the start of the new season… SNOWBIRD SEASON,  that is! They start migrating down here again, so we all have to get back to work! Most of us can't wait to get back to the hustle and bustle of the holidays, the awesome rush of activity after the holidays when…

JUNE – CHANGE OVER TO SUMMERTIME!

JUNE – CHANGE OVER TO SUMMERTIME! June brings yet another "change of season", we transition into the quieter months; our real "down" time. The days get longer, and the afternoons really heat up!

MAY; SEASONS CHANGE AGAIN!

 MAY; SEASONS CHANGE AGAIN!  Well, here spring is not the only season change, May starts our "down time". Things get a little quieter, a little slower, and a lot hotter! I still have four markets a week for May, but that's instead of 5 or 6. The snowbirds have all gone home, so traffic is…

APRIL IS A REAL GEM!

  APRIL IS A REAL GEM! April has a birthstone of a DIAMOND! How can you not LOVE a month that revolves around diamonds? Remember, diamonds are a girl's best friend! I have diamond impregnated grinding wheels and diamond sintered saw blades, so I like to tell people I don't wear my diamonds, I wear them…

JANUARY; REFLECTION, RELEASE, RESOLUTION

Maybe things are changing, as they will do, and your holiday season was was full of…

DECEMBER; “WRAPPING UP” THE YEAR

Yes we are in December already! This month has so many meanings for everyone! Religious holidays, family gatherings, traditions, the beginning of colder weather, the end of the year, and it can also be the biggest shopping month of the year! December down here means more and more snowbirds, and better and better weather! We…

NOVEMBER; FALL COLORS ARE DIFFERENT IN FLORIDA!

So, exactly how is it different? Well, we do have a change of season; the weather changes from boiling and wet to damn perfect! (yes I am rubbing it in!) People start planting the few things that didn't want to grow in the hot, hot, hot summer. The tides in the canals can get really low,…
