Life's Happening

When one door closes, another opens;
but we often look so long and so regretfully
upon the closed door that we do not see the one
that has opened for us."
Alexander Graham Bell

Life is still non stop for me these last few weeks.
I have been working really hard and am
feeling the need to take a break.
But I also know to make something succeed, you need to have
~dream and believe~
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!"
We are going into our space on the 20th.
I've been going through my scrapbook of inspiration.
Here's a few more things I've been working on.

" It's the simple things in life
that bring the greatest pleasure"
Joy's of my life
fluffy cats
Fragrant roses
Dusty's soft nuzzle
Rosie warming my bed
Morning coffee
Birds singing
Cowboy telling me to sleep in

My Loveleigh niece Sares
painted and glittered our name.

I painted an old picture frame that I bought last summer.
We are going to put some chicken wire in it.

Sares and I went scavenger hunting last week and found
some great treasures for our displays!!!
A lovely lady gave us a deal on these items.
bird cage
door with chalkboard
old brown table

We have a space 15 x 4 ft.
There are 3 built-in shelves on the 15 ft side.
We are going to turn the door lengthwise and use it
on the top shelf.

The chair is kind of worn, but a cutie.
I painted it.

I think it will be fun to do some displays in the birdcage.

Meet ?!?
Will tell you her name when I post our opening pictures!!!

We will have lost of fun dressing her!!!

"Within your "HEART"
keep one still secret spot
where dreams may go."

Missing you my Copperpony.
Just be patient with me for another week.
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh yes! I totally believe in the one dor closing and another one opening thought. I try to look backwards with regret, because you're rght, oftentimes there is whole new exciting and beautiful journey waiting to be explored just beyond that new open doorway.

I' so eager to see what your plans and ideas are creating. Pony Girl gave a few hints and everything seems so vintage and beautiful.

I'm so excited for you!

Dusty is looking great in that video.

Sandra said...

Enjoyed this post and wish you well on your new endeavor; the hand crafted things look lovely!

Mama H said...

WOW! The stuff you have collected and created is incredible! Your stuff reminds me of the lady that owns/operates the barn where we had our reception. She is soooo crafty, and can turn someone else's junk into the cutest thing! I bet she would love that door. Heck, I love that door! Can't wait to see the actual space once its done.

You will be ever so busy if you are doing a booth to sell your beautiful things. Life is such fun but so busy a lot of the time isn't it? You will have a blast with your booth I am sure and it will be so cute! Wish we lived close to each other because I have some screens in the attic for display I would give you! Jackie says hello and yes she is cute! :D
