Our shopping trip was a complete success....if you call paying for your purchases as they are turning off the lights a success!! What fun to be with a good friend who loves just what you love...who is filled with creative ideas and so willing to share...who finds the best treasure and says..."I found it for you" !! It truly was a wonderful shopping trip. I love to go to places "unknown"....an adventure not knowing what the end result will be. We left early in the morning, traveled 142 miles one way to find the most wonderful antique co-op - The Roller Mills - in Lewisburg, PA - 400 antique dealers, and most were just what I love. Highly recommend to everyone!
Back to work today but that is fun too! Today the new book (third in a series) called A Simpler Time arrived at the store today and what a great job Judy Condon did putting this book together. If you are interested in seeing some wonderfully decorated homes - GET THIS BOOK!
I have an attic at the store that right now is a real mess.....this is where I store seasonal items, have an ironing board, sewing machine and stacks of patterns and fabric....nothing is neat and tidy. I am a "messy" crafter - but even worse is that I hate to clean up the messes. Soon we are planning to have some classes in the attic...it is a pretty attic (when I clean up the messes!!)....with lots of lighting and two small windows. The stairs are curved as the building dates to 1860...curved, but wide and a railing has been installed for safety. This is where we will give our classes - starting in July. Our first class with be making a Yo-Yo candle mat. It should be fun as the instructor is our own Sharon Nolan from Vintage Threads. (she is also my shopping partner) We made all our plans yesterday while driving to Lewisburg and are ready to put our kits together for this fun project. If you are interested sign up at the store.... as spaces are limited!
Do I dare take a before and after picture.......???? I think not....well maybe an after picture.!!!!!
