It's now or never!

Well I am here...in blogger land!  I thought I would give it a whirl!  It is that kind of year...have decided to rearrange a few things in my life.  I am turning 50 this month, my youngest child started high school this year, so I decided to bring an old decorating business back to life!  I started a very small vintage and antique business last year which I have decided to give a huge shot in the arm.  I will be designing custom made pillows out of Authentic American and European grain sacks and other vintage textiles.  Nothing faux, nothing reproduced, but a lot of one of a kind beautiful, classic treasures for the home.  I thought I would share with you my adventures of starting my new business and all that I guess will come with it!  Currently, I have a "stall" or booth in a local antique mall....at 16 feet by 8 feet, I have run out of room and am waiting for more space.  Because I am changing directions, I will be emptying out the booth and starting over.  I have been out picking and shopping and have found some great items to use as beautiful rustic fixtures...hint:  I was standing in the rain tonight picking out galvanized hen nesters from a farm a few minutes from me.  I'll post pictures later.  So, the journey begins, now I just need to figure out how to use all the blog settings!  Until next time!  Be Real!  Be Joyful!
