A little bit of Christmas

Our holiday season is not over just yet. We had one Christmas this week and one more next weekend before it will come to an end. 
I have been enjoying having a little time to sit and enjoy the lights and music of Christmas. 
As I am trying to catch up after having two businesses during the Christmas season we have also been preparing for our Mother's Day opening. We have been purchasing furniture and planning events for this coming year!
I have been working on two decorating/ design jobs. So we continue to be busy and thankful for our blessings! We are also planning a wedding this year for another one of our daughters! Exciting times!!!
Our stockings continue to expand and our home was full of cheer! I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a hot New Year as well!

Christmas Cheer

There has been so much going on here but I took the time to snap a few pictures of our front porch. I am happy with it this year! I will post the inside pictures at another time!

Our Newest Business!! Merry and Brite

Hello Dear Friends,
   I am so sorry that I have not posted for so long. Life gets busy and I forget and so much is happening! We have opened a second store for the Holiday season. Merry and Brite opened October 14th and we will be open through the new year.
   What fun it has been to be downtown. We have been totally blessed to have so many people support our venture.  Vyntage Barn is going strong as well and we could not be happier with both businesses.
    Our town is having a window unveiling on Thursday so I wanted to get the window complete. I love the way it turned out.
    This store is open daily (except Sundays) and Vyntage Barn is open each Thursday- Saturday so our days and weeks go quickly. With Thanksgiving coming quickly, my heart is just bursting with gratitude.
     Enjoy the pics I snapped...what do you think?

A Pop of Color

What a beautiful day for celebrating the 4th! My dh and I decided to keep it low key this year. We were just exhausted after the sale and the wedding and moving my dd into her new home...we just needed to relax from all the busy!
   It was a little humid to suit me be the temperature was nice and the steaks tasted great too.
I am thinking about using some of these colors in my living room (this is a picture taken before our sale in the shop). I love the light makes me smile.
  We are moving furniture in the shop today...sold pieces out, pieces that go to my dd and then moving more in...and I have painting to do as I had better get moving!

Updates of late.

Hello Dear Friends, It has been such a busy summer so far and I wanted to take a moment to catch up. Between opening the shop at Mother's Day, a wedding, helping the new couple with their new home and then the July has been crazy busy. I sat a spell on that old porch swing that is still hanging on the front porch. When I look through the gap of these two trees my eyes water and my heart breaks since this is the direction of my Mom's home and when I would talk to her on the phone this is what I would be looking at....but I was thinking about all the events that have happened since she has gone to Heaven so much I want to tell her....but life does go on and the first of the three girls is now married.
  I am so happy with all the madness that keeps us going, all the parties, all the weddings, all the life events that do make my heart happy. The shop has grown into a wonderful business that becomes filled with friends each month...and the fall decor is shipping...and the another season will begin...another season will begin.
