I love finding treasures when I clean out the closets that are filled to the max. I could very easily … [Read more...]

36 Down — 614 To Go

If I have been AWOL lately it is because I have a new project.  One that is consuming me until I feel like I have it under control.  I am woman possessed.  More so than usual.

The drive was easy and the company grand.   The store itself was more of a warehouse place and my oh my----all of … [Read more...]
