Changes they are a comin’

We get on a road, following a plan, a plan that has deviated and become twisted, then sometimes we have to stop what we’re doing and reevaluate. I tend to get off balance. Like an unbalanced washing machine. I’ve had way too many irons in the fire and too many things going undone and plans not coming to fruition. I’ve had my Etsy shop that I was struggling to keep up with, booths in 3, yes three, antique malls. We […]

G’bye big booth. It was nice knowin’ ya

So where have I been the past couple of weeks? Oh, here and there, but busy, busy, busy. And the biggest job that kept me busy was downsizing my booth at the Pickle Patch. Remember when I first moved in? I picked out the largest booth, actually a room, in the building. It was great. Very well lit and… well, just great. Pin It That picture is my very first arrangement and shows just the left side of the booth. […]

More painted pieces

This is just a quick post to show a few more painted pieces my talented husband has done. I’m not the painter in the family. As a matter of fact, I’ve realized I’m not good at much of anything! And I’m trying not to let that get me down. Don’cha hate it when you take a picture and notice later something was off kilter? The drawers weren’t in correctly. This chest is at Longleaf Antique Mall in Alexander City, Alabama. […]

The finished turquoise sideboard

He did it! The turquoise buffet/sideboard in the previous post is finished. We’ve spread out and got another booth at Longleaf Antique Mall in Alexander City, Alabama. We have two there and two at the Pickle Patch in Sylacauga. This buffet is in Longleaf on Erin Ave. The brown we ended up using? It’s Sherwin Williams “Raisin”. Goes on purple, dries brown. Pin It

Decorating the booth for the 4th of July

Amazing that it’s already almost the middle 2012 and time to decorate for the 4th! I’ve neglected the booth almost as much as everything else I enjoy lately, but got down there yesterday and did some rearranging. It’s really low on big pieces, except for that *:%#@?&^ fabulous, Art Deco sofa and chair. Actually, it is pretty awesome in it’s original upholstery. It just needs to find the right owner. In the meantime, it’s taking up a whole wall I […]

Booth redo pictures

Where have I been the last 15 days? Beats me. Time just goes by so fast! I’ve gone to the sales the past two weekends, but other than that, I have no idea. Except for the few days I’ve spent working in the booth. I haven’t even added much to Etsy. Now I’m really scratching my head trying to figure out what I’ve been doing with my time if it wasn’t blogging or Etsying. Hmmmm. Here’s what I can show […]

Halloween’s tomorrow???

Good grief! Halloween’s tomorrow and what have I done as far as decorating at home? I located the box of Halloween decorations. Pulled it out, but never even opened it. I did find some quick spots for the decorations that have been bought throughout the year. No thought given to placement – just find a clean spot and put something there – and nothing to write home about. But I did decorate the booth. Again, nothing over the top like […]

My new booth

The doors of the shop are closed. Oh, I’m still keeping it – as long as I can pay the rent – for the central hub. The place to take things before they go out to a booth and to take pictures and pack and ship. And to work on stuff. Dare I say… paint furniture? That’s in the plan. We’ll see. There’s still plenty of stock at the shop, too. I truly don’t have to shop for awhile, but […]

It’s finally over!

Christmas open house is over. Done. Finished. If you missed it, here are some pictures. Naturally, I didn’t think to take any with people here. (Facebook page “likers” have already seen these.) Kudos to Tiffany who was a tremendous help with the decorating! Cookies and Wassail were served. If you need a good wassail recipe for the holidays, try this one. I’ve used it for years. Wassail Punch 1 gallon sweet apple cider 1 quart water 2 cups sugar 1 […]
