New Year- New Weather- New Shop!

I guess things are getting back to normal in the outside world but the big topic here is the weather! Ordinarily, we get a lot of wind on The Neck but we are now in our 5th day of dead calm. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your desires) the calm has been accompanied by non-stop (and I do mean non-stop!) light snow. In fact, we have received about 2 feet here and that has made for some pretty spectacular scenery.

This is our deck and what is unusual is that when it snows, that deck is usually bare because of the wind.
 Unfortunately, the lack of wind has produced some not so pretty sights as well.

You really don't want to be around when these come down!
So the scene has shifted indoors and the wood stove is getting a real workout.

Don't worry, we have another cord stacked up outside!
So because of all this, we figured it was a perfect time to change things around a bit in the shop. If you have been here, you know we have a really small space so the challenge is to set things up to maximize display space. To accomplish this, the inevitable has occurred and we have moved some of the rock specimens into my office area.
Additionally, during a recent trip to the new Ikea in Halifax, we found something that works perfectly!
These small pine boxes fit the decor perfectly and really expand our shelf space!
The beauty of it is that we can fit these things in in really small spaces where a shelf might have looked a little silly. Another big plus is that we can stock an even broader selection of our beautiful hand dyed Seawall Fibres yarn.

So if you have been in the store before, you will notice a big change. And if you are yet to visit, even more interesting treasures await your arrival so make plans now to enjoy our beautiful, scenic Digby Neck, a great family destination. And if you do, plan a whale watching excursion- it will be a memory of a lifetime!
