Lots Going On! May 13, 2021
How’s your week going? Really well, I hope!
I’m at that place, where I’m sure I’d get ‘rear-ended’ if I happened to come to an abrupt stop. Know the feeling? Uh-huh! Thought so!
Tregae and I welcomed our latest Shop Sister to the gang today. Patti has graciously agreed to tackle our behind-the-scenes inventory challenges. I told Patti that if it was fun or easy, that we would have done it by now. So, here we are…nearly 9 years in…and we’re finally there! Welcome, Patti!
I found a mirror on FB Marketplace, this week. The beveled mirror is in perfect shape. The frame has so much detail, I had to go over it four times, to remove all of the dust and dirt. It was worth it!
I applied the first coat of a Fusion Mineral Paint to her today. I started with “Little Lamb” and then added Lamp White, to the “interior” of the frame. We’ll see how it looks tomorrow, when all is said and done. What a great improvement, so far!
On my way home this evening, I picked up this vintage French style table. It includes 2 leaves, that pull out, from each end of table. Mr. Wonderful is going to give it his Official 16-Point Check Up, before I look at the current finish.
We went up to Tahoe, Sunday afternoon, for a quick visit. I was sad to see that the new home, being built next door, seems to keep growing. I told Bob that it makes our place look like a Tough Shed! Oh well!
It is what it is. Now that our deck is in, we’re due for some shrubs and a few trees to soften the view.
I spent Monday gathering dirt. There was plenty to be found inside…and then I celebrated, by updating our master bedroom’s bedding with a coverlet and pillows, from Marshall’s. A fresh white pallet looks really nice. I need to just remember to tell Micah to wipe his feet! (He went to the beauty shop today, so he looks like a new man, with his summer cut!)
Most of our kids will be out, in June for 5 days and I can’t wait! ___________
We’ve got lots of new goodies on their way to the shop! More Myra Bags and Democracy Jeans and new kimonos, to name a few! We love it when the UPS or FedEx truck pulls up! So fun to see the new things arrive!
Yesterday, we had a fun private class and Saturday, is our Spring Banner Class! (Full)
There’s still room in our Weekend Workshop, with Lynne, from a wonderful shop, she and her husband have, called Ellen J. Goods, in New York! She’s a spokesperson and creative “rock star”, for Iron Orchid Designs, and she’ll be teaching three different projects, on July 24th and 25th, with her daughter Meghan. Learn more Here!
She’s a doll and you’ll love her!
Well darling, that’s all for now. Thanks for your wonderful support. Near or far, I’m feeling your good vibrations! As always, keep the faith!
