Still Hard At Work ~ New House & Shop!

We finally had our first Flea Market. The weather here has been sooo cold and yucky I haven't been able to work outside very much. We had lots of neighbors stop by to see what we're doing out here in the little white barn!

Sold lots of older stuff from the shop and some new things too! Just wish I could get caught up!!!

Slowly Getting Moved In

 Just the beginning of the move!
Got the carport moved and set up.
Nice little picket fence, of course it will be painted white!
This is too funny! The old S10 broke down going over with a load f junk on the back LOL! Being towed to its new home.
Beautiful sunset out my bedroom window! Not the best picture but you get the idea!
This was a night time snow event. Big wet flakes!

Winter is here! How many days til Christmas???

 Its getting dark early at the shop. I love the blue sky in this picture! Boy it was cold though! Check out our new concrete sidewalk!!! The shop is getting some major improvements.
 My awesome antique mantle is all decorated for the holidays. Lots of red and green!
This great 2 pc. hutch I painted black is all decked out with pine greenery and some of my primitive snowmen.
 I had to bring this old green and red factory cart in for the holidays, you can't see the wheels but they're painted red!
Terry worked really hard on these deco nightstands, they started out as a vanity and no one waned it so we cut it apart and voila! 
Finally the front view of the barn, full and ready for shoppers! Now we will start packing and moving!

Looks Like We're Moving!

After over 20 years here at the old hacienda on Wildwood Dr. we'll be moving on! The neighbors don't like me "running a business" in my back yard. I thought this was America??? Anyway Things happen for a reason, We found a business/residential house with a small barn where I can run my business!

Its a really cool spot, in the country and less than 10 minutes where I grew up! I've passed this place a million times and always thought it was the cutest little house & barn.

It has old chicken coops, about an acre of land and lots of parking for my future customers!!! There are a few little details like the house is very small, we're leaving our 4 bedroom 3 level house with 2.5 acres but we're supposed to be downsizing. All the kids are grown and we don't really need all that space. We're still working out the details like where will my 18 x 21' carport go {have to have a place to paint!!}

The house was built in the 1800's and has the original log walls upstairs, a wood stove, really nice deck and covered front porch. I am looking forward to decorating as I never really did at the old house raising 5 kids, never had the time or money! We hope to have monthly sales at the little barn and be open by chance on the weekends. The owner is planning on building a big barn where the chicken coops are. Not sure when that will happen. Move in is set for Dec 1 but we won't actually movie into the house until Jan 1. I have a ton of stuff! Change is good right??
