Trying to fit in time to create

I'm struggling a bit with finding time to create. The time commitment of owning a store has kind of spooked me. I am still trying to juggle all things ,store,school, life, and find my time to create. I think it is a matter of time and getting use to new responsibilities. Hopefully all with fall into place. The store is going nicely and we have wonderful customers.I'm dreaming up fall things, hoping to fill the store with warm, fall enchantment.

We Found some perfect treasures for the shop!

What a find! While I should have been tending shop Saturday, I left the young helpers in charge and I ran over to a sale.A friend had called and tipped me to a sale that she thought had "that kind of stuff I like", well turned out we got an enormous amount of new old stock restaurant-ware. The beauty of it is, its from the 50's,packed in hay and wonderful colors. I do love it!! I am selling alot and keeping an amount for the store.I've been washing piles of dishes:)

Aarons way of watching the store for a moment

oh to be young
notice the new green trim color

I can hardly believe how the days are flying by. We are busily preparing for the opening of our store. I have spent many hours scrubbing,painting,unpacking boxes and now the actual setup. Yeah we are making progress. In the mean time, I leave the store with my very capable teenagers in charge and I return to see the fiddler on the roof. Oh to be young and stress free :)

A Beautiful wedding

Brides bouquet w/ Grandma( my mom)

Gracie helping set up

We survived the weekend!! We had a beautiful outdoor wedding this last weekend for our oldest daughter Julie. She is a farm girl at heart and keeping that in mind we decorated a lovely outdoor setting with a very country ,farm theme. She looked absolutely stunning in her knee length, brushed silk dress and cowgirl boots. I being not so clever with a camera didn't get many pictures but will share some of the few I took. The photagrapher got some great ones that I will post soon.
