It Happened So Quickly



Happy Sunday Evening
Sweet Friends

One day I was minding my own business
Serving time at jury duty
And the next thing I knew
I had signed a lease to open a space
At a local Antique/Gift Shop

WHAT??
Well, I had been thinking about it for several years
I had my name in (waiting list) at an Antique Mall
But I really hadn't prepared or gotten too excited
Because wait lists can be months long
And, quit frankly, I didn't think it would happen
Until, at least, after the first of the year

I got called to Jury Duty last Wednesday
After all of the panels had been seated
They didn't need me, so I was released for the day
I stopped by one of my favorite little shops
Just happened to talk to the owner
And, 15 minutes later, I had signed a lease
And told I could move in immediately


I had to go into overdrive to get something put together
I didn't have a shelving unit or anything
Found this wonderful gnome display at a yard sale Saturday
Didn't want the gnomes, just the shelf
They all came home with me
I guess they will be in my space in the spring :)


I had to cut one part of the unit off as it was a bit
Too long for my tiny space
I spent last night hand painting it
And this morning taking it to the space
And setting up just a few items


As you can guess
I have LOTS of work to do to fill up the space
And create some pieces for Christmas
But, it's a start to a MANY year dream
Actually, this is really the first thing I've dared dream about
Since losing My Mark almost 6 years ago

Happy Week Ahead
Blessings

  1. Aww look at you, living your dream after a long wait, good for you. :-)
    What a blessing that you were able to find that shelving and you've done a beautiful job giving it your touch. How funny that you had to take the gnomes with the shelves. Ha!
    Your space looks great already and I'm sure in time it will be wonderful. Wished I lived close by.

    Have a beautiful week ahead in all the beauty that surrounds us.

    Joy! Debbie
