Hi friends! What a difference a week makes in Minnesota. We were just commenting yesterday how we had almost an 80 degree swing from a week ago. Yikes! But as we all know, when Mother Nature smiles down on us in the spring, you get outside and enjoy it! I’ve heard there were a few of our Mamas painting outside in the sunshine this week. Don’t you love it?!
Well, it’s been a busy week around here. Our Occasional Shop in Independence is open this weekend. And if you haven’t heard, Amanda has graciously opened up her home (right upstairs from the store) for tours in the name of charity. We have been raising money for a local safe women’s shelter and we couldn’t be more proud or humbled. Thank you so very much to all of you who have already come through and have been so generous. We love that we are able give back to the community in such a great way. You have helped us out over the years by stopping in our stores and making purchases that help support our little family of Mamas. Every purchase you make not only helps us financially, but continues to give us an outlet to be creative and feed our passions. We love to see you come in and get excited over pieces like we do. It’s all so gratifying…the circle of love is definitely felt at Mama’s Happy. We are humbled to be able to give back to the community and for that, we thank you.
A few weeks ago, the Mamas joined forces for a good cause and did an amazing room makeover at the women’s shelter we are raising funds for. This is a place where families seek shelter and comfort during a difficult time and we wanted to crate a simple, welcoming room to lift their spirits and make them feel at home. About 8 of our resident Mamas donated furniture, decor, painting time and decorating expertise. Here are some before and after photos:
We think it turned out fantastic, don’t you? If you haven’t been out to the Occasional Shop this weekend, we’re open through Sunday. For the sake of Amanda’s family, we are allowing them all back into their home on Saturday evening, so you’ll have to catch a tour today or tomorrow. (You can’t blame her husband and kids for wanting to reclaim their space!) You can reserve your spot on our Facebook events page by clicking here: Creamery Home Tour.
And if you’re headed out to the Occasional Store, don’t forget to take advantage of our March promotion: Visit All 3, Get Something for Free! We’re giving out punch cards that you can take to each store location (Independence-this weekend only!, St. Louis Park and St. Paul) and at the third store, we’ll give you a little gift. So grab your girlfriends and take a little drive this weekend! The weather will be perfect!
Speaking of perfect, check out the new front window display at St. Louis Park. If this doesn’t get you excited for spring, I’m not sure what will!
Ahhhhh, isn’t it pretty?
Have a great weekend and we hope to see you soon!
