Working on my own house!

I can't believe that I was able to post a picture!
I tried it and it worked so I'm gonna go with it!
I've been working in my own house the last couple of days.
Most of the time I'm decorating for other clients, but it's my turn.
I've never really put the house back together since we had the floors laid!
I may have to many things on the walls in the living room!
My favorite thing that I've added to the room,
is the wash tub between the leather chairs.
It has a swing out stool on the side of it!
What a hoot!
We added the wood top, but I love it.
And that little tree on my coffee table is MY Christmas tree!
Yep! That's as good as it gets!

I'm still working on the new blog thing.
Decided I didn't like Dream Host,
so I had to wait for a 2 week free trial to be over so I could go with Blue Host!
I will get all this figured out, got most of the winter to work on it!
Thanks for stopping by!

I almost forgot!
The first open house I had at the new shop was a success!
Thanks to all who came out to support me,
I appreciate it!
I will be open the second weekend of every month!

Wow! What a Show!

So glad to be home from Texas!
What a show we had!
We had a record breaking opening day!
Just blew us away!
The remainder of the show was kinda slow,
but all in all we had a great show!
We got to Texas later than normal and worked so hard
I forgot to even take many photos of my booth!
Oh well! It is what it is!
Now that show is under our belts it's on to the next one!
Yep, you heard me right!
We will be at Vintage Marketplace Style in a couple of weeks!
So make plans now to visit
in Hendersonville, Tn.
Oct. 25-27
at the Hendersonville Expo Center.
Check out their blog for more info!
Hope you enjoy a few of the photos I managed to take.

Before and After

I promised I would show before and after pictures of the items we bring to the show.
Seems someone complained to show promoter that we bring NEW stuff to the show.
Well, I promise NOTHING we bring to Marburger is NEW!
We work our asses off trying to REINVENT each and every piece!
Now when we get done with it, it might look like new,  BUT it's not!
Sit back and enjoy the BEFORE and AFTER pictures of our treasures!

 after-this turned out to be my favorite piece!
 before-this is the date on the back of dresser! 7-41. As in 1941!
 before-white cart
 after-this is one of my favs!
 after-and get a load of all those lamps Craig created out of old junk! Awesome!
after-didn't get a before, no matter it's already gone. Do you like it Carla?
 after-some of the furniture grouped together.
 I love this cabinet, left it in it's original state.
 bringing a few white things this time.

This is the first time I've ever had multiples of the same pieces of furniture.
That's the way I found them!
Two dressers.
Two desks.
Two shelves.

Hope you've already made plans to attend the show.
I'll be at Marburger Farms
Tent H-Booth 17
See you there!

Bittersweet Decisions

As most of you know I've had my shop now for almost a year! And I want to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you that has come from far and near to support me. When I opened the shop I was in hopes that's that it would replace (financially) one or two shows that we do throughout the year. BUT that's just not the case. While the shop has done well it's not doing good enough to fore go any of the big shows that  we do. And I have to have a totally different inventory for the store than I do for the shows, that means keeping up two different styles.
In the upcoming months we are facing several medical events that will prevent me from being in the store. First of all, Craig will be having HIP replacement surgery on Nov. 6th. After that surgery comes some knee work, not sure exactly what that will be. So we are looking at 3 month window that he will be out of commission. That will mean several visits to Doctors and a couple of months of physical therapy. There is no way I can be two places at once, and I'm sure he won't be able to drive a car with his whole leg in a brace.
The only alternative I see is to close the shop. I know there are several of you still making plans to come visit me. Oct. 20th will be the last day I am open, that will be the day of the crossing festival here in town. You still have time to come visit.
I also decided that I may eventually have some sales at my house. If any of you would be interest in being on my mailing list please email me your address and I will add you.
