Back after a long blogging break

My kids helped with the ripping out of the yucky carpet
even grandbaby Maya
created a huge yardsale
My kitchen piled up high with mess


This has been a year that has stretched me in ways I didn't know were possible. I Took on an Antique store/Tea house last September, went through some intensely hard family issues and am giving up the store after a year to be home with my family.This will be my last week running the store and then the task of clearing it out and cleaning out the building awaits. All that to say blogging has been way down on the list of priorities. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. As dim as it still seems. I am looking forward to being creative again. Looking forward to quality time with my family,appreciating the people in my life that have been rocks through a very hard season of my life. You know who you are-Thanks!!!
Preparing for the store /closing sale started a snowball affect in our home. We decided to part with lots of furniture pcs we didn't really love and switch out for new (to us) pieces. After moving out pretty much all our furniture, it seemed like the perfect time to rip out our atrocious dirty carpeting. We have had a pile of pine flooring sitting in our shop for five years just waiting to be put in . We decided to spur-of-the moment do it. Wow what a difference. I stayed up late and stained it and I love it! Just wish it were through out the whole house.

running a store is such a time consuming, hard job...I hope that you have a great closing sale, and hope for the brightest future for you...I love your style, booth at Monticello, and would have loved visiting your store if I lived in Eugene. Have always been a fan, and wish you the best.

How about a picture of that new floor! We've been too busy as well with our own floor project but much progress has been made. I will be getting some pics up on our blog after the dust settles. Take care.
