How has it been over a year since I posted in "my blog"? I was recently talking to a friend of mine who told me that I needed to make posting a priority. So, that is exactly what I am going to do.
The store has been keeping me busy. I am also doing lots of contract work. Most recently, I attended the gift show at AmericasMart in Atlanta. It is amazing to me that every time I go I see new things and meet such great people. One company I stumbled across was Riley & Co. They are a company that hand paints wine glasses. Most of the glasses have an animal theme to them. For example, they have a breed of dog painted in silhuette with paw prints around the glass. Another has the phrase "Sit, Stay, Drink". Riley & Co. is out of Clarksville, TN. Ok, for those of you that know me you know that finding this company was fate. There were just too many things in common. My dogs name is Riley and I was born in Clarksville, TN. Add to that the fact that they are a military family and I just knew this was a company I needed to support. We had to bring them into our store. I hope you love these glasses as much as I do.
Wow, it is really hard to start a blog…I think it is the word "blog" that throws me off. So, with that I am not going to think of it that way. I am just talking to friends.
I have given a lot of thought to what I would share. What I came up with was whatever I want. I am pretty sure the bulk of it will be about renovating my house. My has that been an emotional roller coaster. For now though, I will just leave you knowing that more posts will come.
I will also leave you with a couple pictures of my house. The photos were taken around the time of my closing.
