Just two weeks to go!

I can't believe it myself! Just two weeks until the first Flourishes event!! At this point I just need to take a deep breath.

Everything is percolating along just fine. The new fireplace is in so we should be snugly warm now. Bill will be building the mantel this weekend out of some fabulously chippy door headers. The goal was to put in a heat source that would look like it was original to the building. I believe we nailed it!!

It will be a busy, busy weekend. The Portland Antique Expo starts Saturday. I think they have somewhere around 1350 booths. It's ginormous....but not as big as the July Expo at 1750 booths. At any rate, it's a biggie and lots of fun. I'm going with a list and my camera!! I hope to get pictures of a couple of my favorite vendor booths.....Madison Park, Tarte and Barn House. Hmmm. Now that I think of it, I'm wondering if Joe and Jermone, Barn House will be in attendance. Joe or Jermone, if you're reading this, please give me a heads up!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

It is all coming together so nicely, Aleta. Would that I hadn't had this flu the past seven days. Alas, Expo, I shan't make it due to weakness. But I'll think of you if you're off having a fabulous time. See you soon!

Hi Aleta
I think you are one of the most talented people in the world. I love your blog. It makes me home sick to read. I am a lady from Seattle now transplanted to Toledo, Ohio. I long for the NW.
I was wondering if you could share with me your source for the hoop skirt that you used to make your tea pot bear?
Have a great Spring. Thank you,
Shelley

Aleta,
I'm putting finishing touches on the bunnies and will do signs tonight - hoping to have them out tomorrow by UPS, as it's faster, but will need a SIGNATURE. So, if you are spending all your time at the new house, do I send the bunnies to your old address (which I have on file) or to your new Flourishes address, which I don't have yet. PLEASE CONFIRM FOR ME!

hugs,

Brenda

PS Everything looks fabulous!!!!!!!

Hi Aleta...I just love your birdhouses. I collect them and am always looking for one that is unique. Can't wait to see everything set up.

Have a fun weekend
