A New Chapter! And Farewell My Friends!

Brugmansia
Good morning, All!  This will be the last post of the StarDragonfly Herbals Blog!.  I have thought long and hard about this decision.....honestly, I do not seem to have the time to devote to blogging.  I am sad.  I really enjoyed blogging!  And I loved all the comments that I received from readers.

I did not want to just disappear from the blogging world.  I wanted to say "Farewell!"  Closure is good.  And for me and mine this closure is very good.  As most of StarDragonfly Herbals readers know, I opened StarDragonfly Herb Company (a brick and mortar establishment) in June.  And like the herbs we sell, the store is growing and blooming and seeding and doing all the planty things it should be doing!  And I love it!  I was only going to be open 4 days a week, well, that has grown into 5 days a week.  The hours fluctuate with events that are happening in the small town of Winnsboro, Texas.  So, sometimes the days are very long and busy!  Which is awesome.

In fact, a nice lady named Ann has agreed to be my apprentice!  I took a very nice photo of her, but the camera is sitting on my desk.....which is about 20 miles away.  So watch for Ann's photo on StarDragonfly Herb Companies FACEBOOK page.

That brings me to FACEBOOK.  This is what I have been doing.  Every morning I put a photo and blurb about herbs or products in the store or just an inspirational saying in a post.  I have found that this is mini-blogging!  It is fun!  And it helps those following me know what I do and have at StarDragonfly Herb Company!  So please, LIKE StarDragonfly Herb Company on FACEBOOK!  The link is at the top right of the blog.  Oh, I bring that up because I hear this quite often.  "Well, just what does she have in that store?"

And what do we have at StarDragonfly Herb Company?  Lots of wonderful herbs and herbal products!  Let me see if I can give you some examples!


  • Bulk Herbs, medicinal and culinary
  • Spices, common and exotic!  (We have wonderful         Vanilla beans!)

So, now I am going to officially say "Farewell, Dear Blog Friend!"  If you are local please stop by the store and if you are not, well, next time you are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Winnsboro is about 2 hours southeast of Dallas.  Would love to share a cup of tea with you!  Stay well and please, contact me by email or phone (903-588-4313) if you have any questions.  Will try to help you to the best of my ability!  Herbally, Susan

"I guess it's going to have to hurt, I guess I'm going to have to cry.  And let go of somethings I've loved to get to the other side.
I guess it's going to break me down, like fallin' when you try to fly.
Sad but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life starts with goodbye."
