Greetings to all on this beautiful Monday morning!  It has been spectacular here on the Oregon Coast this last couple of days and if this morning’s lovely sunrise is any indication, today will be another gorgeous day!

Upcoming Events:
2/14 – our seventeenth (wow!) annual Valentine High Tea on Saturday, February 14, is open for reservations.  We have seatings at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  Diane is keeping the menu a secret, but if you’ve ever attended one of our specialty teas, you KNOW it will be fabulous!
Mon Ami Annex Sale – I’ll have the Annex (just 2 doors down from Mon Ami) open both Wednesday and Friday of this week.  We’re moving in furniture and household goods from estates in both Florentine and Greentrees.  Starting in February, the Annex will be open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (and Saturday’s when the spirit moves me).
Here’s what we’re cookin’ in the Mon Ami Cafe this week …

Slow cooked Pork Banh Mi Sandwich on Baguette (one of my personal favorites!)

Soup: Spinach Artichoke Soup
Mon Ami Cobb Salad
Soup: Sweet Potato Ginger
Open Faced Pot Roast Sandwich
Soup: Navy Bean and Ham
Oven Roasted Vegetable Panini
Soup: Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup
Overstuffed Baked Potato
Soup: Carrot Cauliflower Bisque
Friday’s Take-Home Supper:  Overstuffed Baked Potato with all the Fixings!
And From the Bakery:  Lemon Meringue Pie!
We welcome a NEW face to the Mon Ami Team!  Miss Marin James joins us as a part-time assistant in the cafe and has already hit the ground running!  I have known Marin since she was a toddler living in the apartment over our shop and she would sneak down the stairs to get a free cookie when no one was looking. (Yikes, that was a loooooong time ago!) So if you notice a new face behind the counter, that’s Marin – please introduce yourself to her!
As always thank you for your friendship and continued patronage of our cozy little shop! Hope you have a lovely week!

Greetings – it’s a beautiful day in Florence! We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the sun stays shining for another day or two at least, as we have an Experience Oregon tour bus coming tomorrow for high tea. They’re planning to visit all the shops in Old Town as well and its always more fun for folks if its not pouring down rain!

Estate Sale Update: Our massive warehouse estate liquidation in Eugene has been rescheduled for the first weekend in April. There’s far more there to organize and price than we originally anticipated and it’s going to take us quite a bit longer than planned to set up. We just discovered 3 additional storage units there of antiques, lighting, and beautiful furniture used to stage custom built homes! I’ll keep you pasted as we get closer.

Valentine High Tea: Is it that time again already???!!! Yes, we’ll be hosting our annual Valentine Tea this year … on Valentine’s Day!!! We’ll offer two seatings at 11:00 and 1:00, Saturday, February 14. Get your reservations early!

Greetings!   What a fun day we had on Saturday at our 17th annual Christmas High Tea!  Thank you to all of you who joined us – pictures are on our website.  Chef Diane presented a lovely menu and we received many compliments.  Most importantly, everyone had a wonderful time!  

Special Event:  This coming Friday & Saturday, we will host an open house at both Mon Ami and my estate sale showroom just two doors down.  We’ll be offering hot apple cider and Ghiradelli cocoa, along with yummy treats all day both days from 10-4.  Please plan to stop in for some holiday cheer, shop a bit (yes, we’ll be offering a store-wide discount both days), and sign up for a drawing for some fabulous gifts!  We’ll have some lovely jewelry in the case (vintage AND Toby and Max), a full array of French milled soaps, funky letter art made with recycled barn siding, artwork, antique linens and a plethora of beautiful antiques and vintage-inspired gifts for home and garden. Hope to see you there!

Also, I want to thank EVERYONE who showed up on Monday to help wrap Christmas gifts for our troops in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Many hands (at least 15 volunteers) made light work and we wrapped and packaged up over 400 pounds of gifts in less than 3 hours.  My nephew, Sgt. Willy Meyer, has promised to take pictures of his men when they receive their gifts and I’ll share them with you as soon as I get them!  Again, thank you for your kindness and generosity!
Wishing you a merry week filled with cheer and friendship!

And an even bigger thank you to each one of you who have contributed to our Christmas boxes for my nephew’s troop in Afghanistan.

We have a cadre of volunteers gathering at the library today to help us wrap and pack – and boy am I grateful for them, too!
