Soft Aqua-Could it have a calming effect? I HOPE SO!!!!
OK...So, it seems that the last couple of weeks have put Bobby and me over into a new place of crazy/busy!!!! Be careful what you wish for, but I will say most importantly, "Thank you, God!". We are continuously trying to find a new twist to change up some of our favorite pieces-and, I could not wait to take this one to our booth at Old South Antique Mall yesterday....but, we had a call from someone local, and when I mentioned we were busily getting ready to go to Dothan to measure a home for roman shades and other things, she immediately asked, "are you taking anything to the antique store?" I answered, hesitantly-(am I crazy?)-"well, yes...we have a few things to carry to our booth..." Well, the story goes on that she wanted to come here immediately (before we left) to see "the new bench"...and, although I told her we would make her another one similar -I never know if we can do 2 things exactly the same-no promises in that area :) - she insisted that she would buy the bench, and a couple of other smaller pieces right then and there...and, as much as I appreciated the sale, I really did want to take that newest project to display at Old South Antique Mall. We really have not had time to go on our favorite "day jaunts" to find some new items to add to the mix in our booth...but, I am sure things will settle down....but what do you wish for? A sort of nice problem, I'll say... At least, I did take a few photos of my favorite piece of all time (to date) to share with you. Maybe you have some existing pieces that we could help you "change up" ...let us know, but don't call before 9, please...we sometimes work really, really, really late...and, these 6 am phone calls- well, not so good. Thanks for understanding!!! I can't believe I am actually writing about that, but it happens, and I know that we should be up at 6am, and maybe once in a while we are--but I try to handle my emails and home stuff first thing...and, out to the shop maybe by 9ish...I guess when you work from home, it's kind of whatever...there is no escaping it! Again, nice problem...sometimes :) OK----thanks to everyone for accepting us for our eccentricities, oddities, and...our artsy lifestyle. We Love It Here in our World!!!! Have a great weekend!!!
"Cottage and Cabin" is my collection of designs for your home and garden. I am a designer/seamstress, and I truly do what I love and love what I do. I enjoy all aspects of home decor, especially cottage style furnishings and designing window treatments and nurseries. As much as I love sewing, I also spend lots of time redesigning and painting old furniture and salvage pieces.
Please call me, 334-268-0117, or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help with your "cottage".
