I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

How do you turn a heap of rubble into a cozy shop in a matter of hours?You commission the farm truck of epic awesome-ness, call on your loved ones, and tell your kid to skip out of school for the afternoon, of course!Then you find your 10 x 10 foot space on what is typically main street, and you get to work- fiddling, pruning, rearranging, and primping.A few hours later, you'll have a cozy little shop, ready for business in the glorious summer sun- and well after it fades into night.They'll come in droves. The buzz will be palpable. The energy will be wonderful.



Thanks, Niverville.


I really like you.

Wish I could have been there. I was wondering about the lack of contrast when you finished your ba - but then I see with the finished result, what you had in mind. How could I have doubted you, you fabric magician?

I love that crib too.
I bought it at a little antique place near where we lived when I was pregnant with our first. $35- at the time. I would have paid more even though we were poor.

thanks, mare. It was a lot of fun.

And you too, Janice. I hope I don't burst your bubble when I explain that I never really have a full vision until I start, and then just see where it leads me?

NOw, to deal with the post-high.
*sigh*

Can I finance a boler, paint it turquoise, and just sell junk?

if you had said green and not turquoise... there might have been a deal.
Beautiful!
You and your shop.

I'm pretty sure Niverville really likes you too! Those bags and your "shop" look amazing. I'm so proud of you - you really did it!

Judy said...

Wow. Thirty-five dollars. What a deal.
Now, just post your address and where you hide the spare key...

joyce said...

BB- I could work with green....

Thanks, k. wish you had been here...

judy- the spare key is in the backpack of the kid who comes at 6 AM. I put it there after having slept in and left a parent and kid standing in the dark snow of my deck banging away aimlessly at my back door.

They can now randomly drop kids off willy nilly at any hour of the night. Good thing they don't love old junk or I'd really be in trouble.
