Greeting from New England,
Our leaves have all fallen, well at least the really colorful ones, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have some beautiful fall colors to show you.
A couple of weeks ago I walked through the little village where we live and documented the passing of the seasons with my canon. Absolutely gorgeous but so short-lived, at times I thought I would burst as I tried to absorb all the beauty around me.
In keeping with the autumn palette, I made this wreath to celebrate our Studio Re-opening.
We are working to get ready for the grand Re-opening of our Shop/Studio on October 31st. Five years ago a fire destroyed our store and we lost everything. Insurance paid only 5% of the loss so it has taken us a long time to get an old out-building converted to a two-story shop/studio.We have done most of the work ourselves [with some help from friends and family] while still maintaining our other jobs.
One of the new items we will carry is Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. We are so excited when customers want to do their own work!!!! But while getting ready to display the paint I realized we did not have enough display space for much inventory. Remembering all those wooden crates we had been using for storage I came up with an idea, how about a “staircase shelving unit”? Well my design called for 14 crates and we only had 7. These are times when having a husband carpenter can make one SING !!!! It took two days, a trip to the salvage lumber yard, some whitewash paint and voila, a shelving unit is born. I hope this qualifies as furniture for Furniture Feature Friday.
A bit more touch ups and the shelves will be ready when our paint arrives next week! Hooray!!!!
Hoping you all have a great weekend,
