Window Dressing

We had some downtime at the shop yesterday, so we busied ourselves fall-ifying the place. {Speaking of fall: in the spirit of the new season, I’m burning a gifted Rafa Natural “harvest” soy candle as I pound out this post; it’s warm, spicy heaven in a jar.} When all the day’s deliveries were done, my…

I sealed it with a swipe of Good to Go quick-drying topcoat, and dozed off for a luxuriously interrupted 8 hours. I woke…
