Coming up for air...

So much going on right now...don't even know where to start! We've been so busy that I just noticed I didn't even post about the last First Monday show....that's a rarity! It was wonderful, we had a great turnout and said goodbye to a lot of wonderful pieces!! Now, it's almost time for the next one....just next week! Where does the time go?...




Immediately following the past show, we rolled up our shirt sleeves and began renovating the Canton Cottage. This lil gem was built in the 1930s and was starving for attention! It was once featured in Cottage Style magazine many many years ago, but has long since been cast aside and forgotten. So, we've been doting over it and giving it our full attention for the past several weeks! I'm bonding with the lil place (it's less than 1000 square feet) and am eager to share it with you. But, you need to see the starting line first......the "before" photos. So, here goes....











Does it look like a good candidate for some TLC? We're putting the final touches on the kitchen renovation today.....so a nice long post is forthcoming with lots of "after" photos! Stay tuned!
Blessings,
LaurieAnna
