I have been away for far too long and you were getting worried...Right?
I have been working at the store....getting Autumn merchandise out...resetting the vignettes...front window.(yes, I entered Elizabeth's contest)
I did the front window of the boutique in a "take a load off" theme
I even built a hammock from chicken wire for the occasion!
I had to laugh the other day when the owner of the shop next door made the comment
"It was nice of us to allow Tim's products to be showcased"
Yeah, Okay...so maybe I don't often do our window displays with paint, hardware, or custom shutters and shades...
And I have never done one with the Homemade Fudge
But, there is always something Hardware like in the displays!
I gathered up all my painting supplies, bits of old lace... antique ladders and of course a chandy!
(One must always have Chandeliers!)
And created a restful little window.
I am working on the paint drop cloth draperies to go across the rest of the store front...
And the scalloped valances...we used a 5 gallon paint bucket as our template!
We will have the entire store front completed by Christmas!
But for now...it's just this one vignette
Does it make you feel like taking a break?
That is it's intention!
Now that that everything is complete at the store...
I am onto other projects.Like working on Summer House...(we are almost done with the construction phase!!!)
and even decorating the cottage for the season!
It cooled down for a few days this past weekend and I just couldn't wait any longer!
I just do and look forward to it's arrival each year.
This year, I decided to go back to using color...Salmon...faded reds and Chocolate.
I know...will wonders never cease!
I am seeing things alot clearer than this picture turned out (sorry!)
Autumn is a time of great blessings for our family.
...each now cherished!
I hope you enjoyed my little cottage tour.
I loved having you!
As always...Have a Wonderful Week!
