finding a way ...

finally got everything moved - all in one place - all awaiting transformation or just waiting approval as it sits and to be priced and repacked and transferred to a new home, a new owner, a new caretaker. we have almost completely filled 4800 sq feet. i hang my head in shame at my inability to allow anything i consider useful to litter the landfills. i strut with pride the gift God has granted us, the creative juices to transform the items that cross our paths. sometimes it feels like a curse to pass an odd shape stone in the road and have to fight the desire, no need, to pluck it from its surroundings and transform it into something others will appreciate and seek to display.
i have many things in store to share with you and i hope you will ride this journey with rod and i. i promise i will always have something to say. and i will share some interesting thoughts and creative ideas with you.
i have some series ideas coming up.
for now, take a peek at some of the things that fill our warehouse. we are considering doing one show in the un-reserved section at canton and then we will be at Zapp Hall in Warrenton. i believe that rod may also be setting up with some friends behind das blue haus in warrenton. so we are having a time deciding who gets to take what - i'm thinking a little girlie, a little shabbie, a little white at Zapp and more primitive, rustic, texas with rod. we'll see and trust.
this week we tackle unpacking the boxes and crates. also going to get some painting of furniture done and maybe some lampshades recovered. i got some things listed on ebay tonight. and my sister might be having surgery in the middle of the week down in temple. so lots lined up. but did i mention how happy i am to be doing what i love to do? i am.


  1. Looks like you've got some great things to bring. Please let me know if you will be in Canton. I'll be there shopping that Thursday, would love to stop by.

  2. i will not be there - most likely rod will be alone - but if we decide he needs to go - i will email you his cell number and you can call and ask where he is set up - if that works for ya - it will be rough stuff that needs work and will likely be priced cheap -

  3. Now that's a warehouse!! I'm trying to figure out a way to move Texas a bit closer to Minnesota or vice versa. I would love to be able to go to Canton regularly. And I love the vendors at Zapp Hall!! Theresa, Deb & Danny, the Junk Gypsies, etc.! I'm sure I would love your booth, too!!
