Today was a thrifty kind of day. My mom has finally come to the realization that what I do is fun, not cumbersome and boring. I am slowly luring her into the crafting and repurposing world....and getting her away from "prim" catalogs that sell new, manufactured in china, cheap furnishings and decor.

Over the last five years, I have learned a lot about blogging and running a creative business. I know one thing for sure is that as soon as you reach one goal, your instantly looking for the next. I have experienced owning two antique stores, writing for my blog and now a nail salon and artisan's guild. It's a lot. Many of my emails and questions are about how I do it.
For the last few months I have had my eye on this sweet vintage knee hole desk with floral accents. It was sitting on the back landing behind my shop. Yesterday I was asking around and found the owner, he told me to take it, so I huffed it all by myself over to my studio and started to work on it.

---------------------In November, I had a great opportunity to take over the rent for The Corner Co-op in Litchfield CT. For many years the building was home to a health food store. When we signed the lease I thought about moving my furniture store to the location but decided instead to open an artisans guild.
