What do Scarves and Roller Skates add up to?

Fun!!

In my October post I put out a call for models.  I really didn’t think anybody would step up to the plate and want to do it.  I was truly amazed at how many ladies put their hands up and said “Me, Me, Me”  The first message I got was from Steph Warner coach of the Wellington Roller Derby.  She said that the girls would like to do it in groups of two or three.  Hey, why not, ya get more bang for  your buck (but I wasn’t really paying anybody) and have lots more fun playing together!  Turns out that some of the other ladies either chickened out (yes I’m looking at you, you know who you are) or just wanted to save all their strength for their practice rather that use up their strength on a long exhausting photo shoot!  Well girls, you don’t know what you missed.  :D

So out we got to Steph’s place and Cathy Snyder joined us and we began the gruelling process of having our very own photo shoot.  Thank goodness I was on the other side of the camera because these girls are beautiful and show off my Warm Winter Wear very nicely.  Beware, I took over 300 pictures and had pare down from there, so I’m left with, 15 that I uploaded, and now I have to pick and choose from those.  So without further ado, here’s what happened.

It was a lovely warm fall day.  A day that couldn’t be wasted sitting doors.  they were enjoying the sun showering it’s golden rays upon the land and the soft breeze was blowing that it felt as though delicate fingers were tickling the strands of their silken hair across their faces.  But wait, what’s this, who is this strange person with scarves and ponchos showing up with a camera!?  Ah, yes, this is the day we are doing the photo shoot with Sherry, from Sherry’s on Main.  Well we have an hour or so before Roller Derby Practice, let’s do it.

This is what really  happened.

Steph Warner picked me up and we headed to her place while we waited for the other girls to show up, and like I said before, it was only Cathy who came to play with us.  I brought a poncho, Blanket Scarf and 3 piece Scarf set and off we went on our photo shoot “I’m ready for my close-up Mr. Deville”

This is  our first photo and it gets sillier from there.

Steph is modelling our 3 piece Scarf set made up of wonderfully warm slouch hat and scarf with lovely soft mittens.  This is her “I’m the coach of the Bloody Marys, you had better listen to me or else!!  Cathy is showing off one of our soft an comfy ponchos, saying, “Whatever”

Now we are getting into the Artsy stuff, again Steph on the left, Cathy on the right… aren’t they pretty😀

Now we’ve switched up our pieces.  Steph is wearing one of our Blanket Scarves while Cathy is modelling our 3 piece Scarf Set.

So that you don’t think that our Roller Girls are just posers, they are posing in their Roller Skates.  See what I did there, poser, posing.  Well, ok, I thought it was funny.  :P

Since we didn’t have another, ahem, Roller Girl, we had Steph’s daughter Autumn step in.  :D  All 3 pieces are shown, the Blanket Scarf, Poncho and Scarf set.  3 pretty girls making a Totem Pole imitation.  This is one that I had been thinking about doing, and I think it turned out great!

I think out of the bunch of them I think these ones are my favourite poses.  It’s just too bad that I didn’t have one of all 3 of them along the fence.

So there you have it, as I said earlier, it was hard to pick between 300 plus pictures but I think you get a pretty good idea.  I want to say a great big Thank You to Steph, Cathy and Autumn, they did a fantastic job for me, as a matter of fact the Ponchos are sold out and I only have 2 of the 3 piece sets available.  I do have a few more of the blanket scarves in 3 different colours to choose from.  Each piece is priced at just $40.  Hopefully I’ll have a new order of the ponchos and Scarf sets in soon.

If you want to have a great evening of watching some rough and tough ladies fight it out on the flat track then get out there and watch the Wellington Roller Derby.  Steph Warner is coach for the Bloody Marys and the other team has a fierce and scary name too, Feims.  And just imagine what the each of the ladies Derby names are! If you are interested in joining the one of the teams, you can be their new “Fresh Meat”.  Go to http://www.wellingtonrollerderby.ca or check out their Facebook page,  https://www.facebook.com/WellingtonRollerDerby/?fref=ts

The next match is the Winter Wipeout un March/April in Mount Forest.

For our next photo shoot, let’s hope that more of the Derby girls come out and not be such scaredy cats!

Lots going on in November!

Here’s just some stuff that I think may be interesting or useful to both you and me.  There’s a lot going on this month so, lets get started!

First, today, Nov. 5th, is Daylight Savings Time, today is the day to set your clocks back by one hour.  Enjoy that extra hour of sleep!

 

Then  Lest We Forget.  Remembrance Day is November 11.  Find a local remembrance service in your area to honour and give thanks to those brave men and women who fought four us to keep us safe and free.

This is my Grandpa, Harold Bowen, who served in WW11 from 1940 to the end of the war.  Handsome man isn’t he.  I have his picture and one of him with his 2 nephews in my window display.  Stop by and have a look at it.

This year is a big one for me, at least I think it is.  On December 1st, our 13th wedding anniversary, Brian game me this store as my present.  I’d always wanted a little shop and he did it for me.  I had no idea that I was about to embark on an adventure that I had no idea was coming!  I didn’t have anything to sell or anything!  Brian was prepared.  He had a few items to sell, signage and everything was in place for the Grand Opening!  So anyway, as I was saying on December 1st is our 13th wedding anniversary and as of December 1st this year, is my stores 13th anniversary!  Pretty cool eh?!


And Finally, Christmas will be soon upon us.  As some of you may know, I’ve become well known in town for my Upside Down Christmas Tree.

The first year I did it was quite controversial, some people thought there was some sort of hidden meaning to it.  Nope, it was just a solution to a problem.  When I had it up the right way, it kept falling over because of the wonky floor.  I ended up taking it down early so it wouldn’t fall on anybody.  Now people come in and ask when I is going up.  Unfortunately, after so many years, my poor little tree has become quite threadbare.  This year I’m doing another unconventional Christmas tree.  I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes over this year!  And NO, I’m not giving the secret away… you’ll just have to wait!

TTFN,
Sherry

Models Needed

I am in search of someone in the MoFo area who would be willing to model some of the things I have in the store.  Jewelry, Handbags, Shawls etc.  Nothing Glamorous, so you don’t need to look like this.

modle-1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or this,

modle-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or even this,

model-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just someone who would like to have a non paying position.  Or someone who craves the spotlight and and to gain the prestige of being the face of Sherry’s on Main.

Or someone who thinks it would be a lark and just good fun.  You will be on all my the Facebook posts and WordPress Blog Pages and seen all over the world by almost nobody!

Apply to Sherry at Sherry’s on Main.

Oh, and if you think I’m kidding, I’m not!  I had a girl who modelled some things for me but she moved away.  :(

Getting around the Facebook algorithms

ddd42-pointing2bhand2bvintage2bimage2bgraphicsfairy1

I’ve been wanting to do longer posts and add more pictures but Facebook has decided that they don’t like that.  Apparently they’ve decided that if they think a post is too “Advertizy” that’s not a word but I’m using anyway, it is to make the business pages “Boost” their posts, and of course, they charge for that.  I don’t want my faithful followers and friends to miss anything .

So as you can see, when you click on my post, it will bring you right here to my blog and you are able to see the rest of what I have to say and show you more pictures.  Today, I don’t have much to say but, at least I’ve been able to figure out how to do it!

Thanks for being my followers and friends.

TTFN

Sherry  :D
