A brand New Year

with clean pages waiting to be written on, new projects to be completed, new friends to be made.    Put aside last year and look forward to this next year is my focus   Count my blessings, learn from my mistakes and trust that Higher Power to be in control!

Wishing you all a peaceful, prosperous and pleasurable New Year!

Omigoodness! It’s been such a long time between posts….

Since last we chatted we had our Holiday Open House (before Thanksgiving so we title it a Holiday Open House), we’ve sold lots of vintage Christmas but add more almost daily, started getting a decent amount of rain (we had a drought the last few years but we’re not home free yet!), refurbished a bunch of furniture (lots of which has new homes – thank you!) and are getting ready for Christmas and a New Year shortly after that – everything most everyone else is doing I know.  (And yes, Mrs. B, I know that was a run on sentence/paragraph- lol!)

I think my News Year’s resolve should be to write more often this coming year to keep you abreast of what we are doing – if you are interested, that is.  I kind of view it as an online journal to look back and be able to see how we’ve grown and changed as a shop.

New things in lately:

You also got to see some of our Christmas decor – I love how it makes everything pop!

Until next time – take care and hug your loved ones closely whenever you can!!

Hurray for the Red, White and Blue!

It’s getting to be that time again – although I love these colors all year long!

Miss Nora transformed this old tricycle into a darling planter with a new paint job, a basket and a potted geranium.  So cute a lady walking by just stopped to purchase it!

And I decided the entry needed a transformation!
