Are you serious, REALLY?

With the 2009 right around the corner - It is always fun, to reflect on the year. Where you have been, how far you have come, and goals and dreams for the new year. Poppyseeds, Stanwood opened May 1st of 2008.

We thought it would be fun to show you the before and afters!! "Are you serious, REALLY?" was a comment made when Julie and I were discussing opening. It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint and dusting will do. We like to think of it as a diamond in the rough. Now almost 8 months later it is fun to look back on the old photo taken in February 2008 and remember how far we have come.

We want to send a 'shout out' to our newest addition to Poppyseeds - Diva Deb who stopped in one day and is now a special part of our store! Debi is an amazing woman who's style and decorating have everyone talking. She introduced us to the world of blogging! Thank you Deb so much for everything!

We are excited about this new adventure and all of the wonderful people we have met along the way. Thanks you so much and talk to you soon!
