The weatherman said it was going to rain today. I'm so glad he was wrong!! Perhaps it will later, but for now at least, the sun is streaming through the windows "in the most delightful way!" And there's more! "In every job that must be done there is an element of fun....." Julie Andrews. Mary Poppins. A Spoon Full of Sugar. You will now have that song stuck in your head. Spit, spot. Ha!!
Thought I'd share a few more pictures to show you how Flourishes is coming along. The first one is of the strings of lights that I forgot to upload the other day! The string that is lit up in the picture is so pretty. The glass is frosted so it gives a lovely soft glow. Perfectly romantic!!
I think we're about halfway there as far as furniture/display placement goes. We even eeked out a space for a holding area. One of our concerns is making space for a check out line. Floor space is valuable but even more so is ease of movement while shopping!
Once the floor plan is set I can begin working on getting all the furniture in tip top shape. Some pieces just need a thorough cleaning after being stored in our garage for a few months. Some just need a cushion. Some, however, will need a bit more than that! I see some very late nights in my future. Sawing, sanding, a little french applique and voila! A masterpiece!!
Did I ever mention I wanted to be a furniture designer? In this case it will be furniture re-designer! How many hats can one girlie wear? This is where I insert: Don't worry mom. I'm not doing too much. And yes, I'm getting plenty of rest. She's such a worrier!! :o) (Isn't it too cool that my mom reads my blog?!!)
There is much to be done before my fabulous group of artists and vendors bring me their lovelies. Rolling up my sleeves now and getting to work!! Oh my goodness, you are in for such a treat!!
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
