Harvest Moon Event

WELL FINALLY!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for what seems like forever to write to my fans!!!!! But as you know, I must wait for my human underlings to get the pictures of me and the shop on the web before I can create the masterpiece that goes with them! Anyway, I guess all the photos from our "Dot Show", in August, were lost. I know how disappointed you must be because, yes, there were a ton of darling pictures of me!!! Well, our dot show and flea market was a great success, but I still didn't see any flea's!?!? Tons of people came and I added so many new friends to my invitation list.

Well, enough about last show. This show was our Harvest Moon show and the barn looked so fun. There was straw all over the floors, a bunch of tumble weeds had rolled in and found their way on top of several cupboards and hutches. As usual, I was the center of attraction. I was in a large metal bin marked "straw" on the out side and I sat a top a bale of straw, but I was covered in corn husks and had little bits of corn in my fine curls too. There was corn on the cob sitting all around me, but not one person cooked it up and slathered butter all over it so I could eat! Sometimes you just have to spell everything out.
We had another great honor (besides me) at the show. We had our first customer that came from Japan so they could shop at Matilda's! Hiro Yakmoto is an antique wholesaler who had found out about us. So, he came to buy antiques to take back to Japan. Well, I'm sure he also came to see the "the great Matilda" because really, I don't think someone would travel thousands of miles just to look at antiques! Anyway, we had a picture taken of Hiro and my mom in the shop and she gave him one of our Matilda's canvas shopping bags for being the person who had come the furthest.
Well, everything is all in a scurry as the girls start getting ready for our Halloween event! Wow, what a lot of great stuff has come into the barn! Can't wait to see you, and I know you can't wait to see me, too! I'm sure I will look spooktacular!!!!
Kisses to all,

Hey Matilda, good to meet you pal. Yes, I agree that every dog should have their own blog. J x
