Hello February 2017,
and Hello readers!

I took it slow in January and did not blog. Boxing
day I injury myself to the point it was hard to do
many tasks so that set the tone for awhile. I started
puttering around the house as most of use do in
January getting things organized again and finishing
off old tasks. It was all at a much slower pace than
usual but I still got a lot accomplished.
Check it out ...

You can still get GG's classic style of vintage mason jar candles but for Valentines
I usually like to design something special. If you are interested send an email.

I found this wonderful vintage handmade keepsake box at The Passionate Home.
It was already monogrammed for GG so I couldn't resist.
I adore one of a kind treasures you will never get a second chance to find.
I painted the monogrammed area with pure white ASCP. 

We had an unusual amount of snow this year and it came on the first day of the year. Early that 
morning  before GG was up I put on my winter boots and puffy warm jacket and trudged around 
taking pictures in the snow. We just don't get this kind of winter often so I snapped photos until
my fingers froze. Good thing GG was in bed other wise I would have got in trouble for staying out 
so long.


I have been finishing off some small thing and deciding to let go of some larger things also.
Because of this the showroom always has something new in it. I just put the finishing touches on this
 round backed chair perfect for a bedroom. Now I just have to get it properly photographed and listed
 for sale. The large window from over our bed is up for grabs as well as our tall vintage sideboard.


I also found some time to get the hallway painted. It is a small space that was still quite dark with the
beige color I original had painted on the walls. I used a bright white semigloss and I am telling you it
has made all the difference in the world. The winter sun streams into the large showroom window and
straight into this hallway reflecting off the mirrors and bouncing off the white walls.


And at the end of the hall is our bedroom and this year I hung my mirror balls in the south
 facing window to catch the sun's rays. The little points of light sparkle all around the
room. Each day when it happens it really does make us smile and lifts some of that winter 
gloomy felling away. If you have a mirror ball give it a try it's a kind of magic.
