Effie's Rock and Crystal Shop

Today, I thought I would drop by one of the most interesting shops in Moreville.  It's a local rock shop owned by a colorful lady named Effie.  Her shop has been in business for awhile, and it attracts locals and tourists alike.  Looks like business is good...

I'd say Effie's shop did a booming business today.  Everyone, including Marianne, got the stones or crystals they wanted.  Effie just has to remember to double her order of amethyst crystals since people snatch them up the minute she puts them out.  LOL

Here is the shop.

The left side consists of display shelves with various stones and crystals.

The right side consists of a display case which contains the special, more expensive items.

Thanks Effie.  We'll come back and visit you again.

This shop was inspired by a real-life rock and crystal shop located in Helen, Georgia, just a few miles up the road from here. It's one of my favorite shops in this area. It always has a colorful collection of all kinds of stones and crystals, from the very large to the very small. A visit to that shop always makes me feel good.

On a personal note:  I'm going on a little beach vacation to Tybee Island, Georgia for a few days with my sister Deb. We'll be celebrating her birthday along with a couple of friends. Since there's no wi-fi where we'll be staying, I won't have internet access.  So if you leave me a comment here, and I don't respond right away, please know I'm not ignoring you.  I promise to respond to all comments when I return next week.  Thanks so much again for following my blog.  It would be nothing without all of you!  :-)

Score! - Part 2

Last week, I scored big time at Walmart.  Yesterday it was Target in Gainesville, Georgia.  I found the Divergent movie dolls, and the movie isn't even being shown in theaters yet!  It'll appear in theaters this coming Friday, March 14.  I wasn't going to get these dolls, but I just couldn't resist.  Moreville could use some recent college graduates. LOL

Here are Four and Tris still in their boxes.

Here they are de-boxed. These two are fully articulated. Yay! No re-bodying necessary!

Tris has a tattoo of three birds symbolizing the people she left behind.

Four's tattoos symbolize the things he's most afraid of.

The college kids heard so much about Casey's, they decided to check it out.

Seems everyone winds up at Casey's at some point or another; except the little kids and teens that is. I'm not sure what will develop with these two and some of the other Moreville residents.  I guess I'll just have to wait until they "tell" me their stories. :-)

Friday Night at Casey's Tavern

Dana and her friends Michele (party dress) and Lucy (blue jumpsuit) decided to check out Casey's on Friday night. Lucy had already been to Casey's on a couple of dates and really enjoyed it. While the girls weren't there specifically to meet men, they weren't exactly against the idea either. LOL Meanwhile, Casey had just returned from his vacation at the beach with his girlfriend Tera.

Looks like Casey and Ryan love being matchmakers for people. And his tavern is the perfect place for folks to meet. No one is ever uncomfortable there. Casey and Ryan make sure of that. It's no wonder that the tavern is the most popular place in town. :-)
