Back when I started Miss Eff's ... I would get up every morning and bake cookies to serve my guests.
I made lemonade and served it in Mason jars from doily strewn trays.
I wore dresses and pretty straw hats on Sunday and I would never weed during open hours.
It was quaint ... sweet ....vintage .... and so very Miss Eff!
I know! Have ya seen me lately??? OMG!! You are lucky if I am not dripping in dirt! And the dresses??
Ha!!!! That's a joke.
I quit baking cookies when I realized that far too many of the all-butter, real vanilla, chocolate chunk cookies were ending up on my butt!
I quit serving lemonade in Mason jars when the sink was piled mile high in jars.
I went to glass jugs with paper cups. Then when the glass jugs broke ... I went to galvanized coolers. And when those rusted on the inside ... I went to hard plastic dispensers.
I hauled water and ice and picked up cups as the wind tossed them around the farm. Every day .... often, two or three times a day.
And then ..... I gave up!
I totally gave up! No cookies ... no lemonade .... no water.
Lately ... more and more people have asked if I sell bottled water. And I cringe. Cuz I don't!
Selling bottled water in those awful plastic bottles is totally against everything I believe in!!
But guess what???
Bottled water is available at Miss Eff's ..... $1.00. We will recycle the bottles. It's the best I can do.
Wait ... I will serve it while wearing a pretty straw hat!
