Nothing but a blurb today on my post. I am working on marking everything in the shop in hopes of opening to the public in September. I am having so much fun making each tag and getting ready.

Below is just a sneak peek of what's coming next on the website. This is one of my views from where I sit and talk with all of you. Coming in here makes me HAPPY and I look forward to it changing as the treasures leave and go to their new loving homes.

Uncle Duane's Funeral Service was very nice. I held it together until the 21 gun salute and the lone bugle guard played "TAPS". I lost it as I think everyone else did too.

On a HAPPIER NOTE, Have a great day today, I am going to PAINT my FRONT SHOP DOOR in a PATRIOTIC RED, if the rain holds off today, I would like to get that done too. (in between all the company I have coming today)

Hugs and Love, Amy

Ooooh, Amy, I am soooo wishing you success in this new endeavor, sweet mommy chick....I wished I lived closer to come and speak with you and buy (squeeeallll!) some of those treasures. But I ain't flying anywhere, honey!! Good luck, my sweets.

Your shop is looking wonderful. I hope that arranging and painting are a little distracting from all of the sadness. Your Kristi is beautiful. I pray that she stays state side in her military career. You have a lot to be proud of.
Big hugs

On August 12, it will be five years since I opened my antique shop! Just letting you know that it's possible to have your dreams come true. I remember what it was like to try to get everything ready to open and how excited I was. I am still excited everyday when I put that key in the door and open my shop. Best of luck with your opening and I'll keep visiting so I can share in your excitement.

Hi Amy, your shop is looking wonderful. I wish you all the best with it. I am very sorry for the lost of your dear uncle. Looks as if he led a very full life and accomplished much.I will be praying for you and the family,asking God to comfort through his Holy Spirit. I will also be sure to remember your DD as she moves into a new chapter of her life,asking God to give his angels charge over her,to keep her in all her ways.

Blessings, Shelley
