"O" my.... and an announcement!

Sometimes Hooper and I have to self-proclaim how smart we are. We thought we were downright genius when we decided to open a pop-up shop in a local warehouse. We even came up with a clever name...
"The Coop"
(cute... right?) This is where the demise of our intellect began. While shopping for the shop we came across some old movie marquee letters complete with the frosted glass background they were originally on. We quickly found the letters we needed and bought it all...

Isn't it great? Now, do you notice the problem... Well we didn't but when I was showing my EIGHT YEAR OLD a picture of the sign on my phone her only response was "I like it but why did you misspell it?"  WHAT?!?! EXCUSE ME ?!?! You mean it's spelled like poop, not soup? Oh dear...

I quickly emailed Hooper the Merriam Webster definition of the correctly spelled "Coop" and her response was very simple...
"We are so stupid". While I agreed in the moment, with further research Hooper discovered the definition of the word COUP. It means "government overthrow" or "stroke of genius" -- Haha.. well there you have it, we came full circle and are once again really quite brilliant. (we just can't spell) 
So no worries, the other "O" came in the mail yesterday and we are back on track! Spelled correctly, it means:

: a cage or small building in which chickens are kept. 

Perfect for two little birds and their GENIUS ideas. 
And, stay tuned...
We plan to use this space as a studio/warehouse and open it up to readers and friends for SHOPPING! We are going to fill it up with finds -- tweaked, painted and reupholstered Birds of a Feather style. We may just be two birds that have flown over the cuckoo's nest...but we are going to give it a shot. 

We will have an opening date at the COOP and par-tay to tell you about soon!

Happy Wednesday!
Bye, bye birdie,

Yay!! You girls are genius (except for the momentary misspelling) but coup would have worked too, just in a different way. Wish I lived closer! I love the idea of a pop-up shop in a warehouse. I'm planning on just doing one at my house because I'm lazy and cheap (rental prices, etc.). Can't wait to see what you girls do!

Ha!! Coup could have been a coup! But Coop works too! Best to you on your new enterprise!
