I'm movin' on up...

... to the center of the tea room!!

(Thanks to Jacob Kizer, for taking this picture.)
I was back there where that carriage (or surrey, or whatever you call it) was.... but now I have to make sure the back of my hair looks nice,
oh, and my shoes are polished,
and my nails look okay.

(And I can't wear my bath-robe to the tea room.)

Manager Claudia called me last week, and asked if I minded if they moved the piano, since people couldn't hear me in the party area.  I said 'I think that would be okay'.... then wondered if it would really be okay..... but it was!!
Well, I didn't realize it was so okay until I started counting my tips!
Yesterday I got $73!!! The day before that I got $58!  That's better than the usual $8 to $12 ... or $0.   Whoa.  'Course it is the holiday season and people are feeling generous.... and of course, they have to pass by my tip jar now, and well.... I need to get a bigger one!!!

So I'm excited.
And I'm playing some new tunes... and though "Let It Go" was a new tune last fall, it is getting old fast.... so I'm letting it go.

I do play old tunes still, though.
After all, it IS an antique mall.

Come see me at LoneStar Antiques Simpliciteas Tea Room (5605 Denton Highway, Haltom City, TX).  I usually play on Tuesdays and Fridays and Saturdays, from 11:30-1:30 (till 2 on Saturday). (Well, one Tuesday a month I'm gone to Oklahoma on business.)
See my schedule on my calendar at my website, NancyCarmack.com.

Yes, I'm shamelessly promoting myself.

Well, why not?  It's my blog, after all.
