Opening day, what a day it was! I'm sooooo, sooooo totally glad it's over and now life can begin to take on a more normal routine, I hope.
I took these pictures sometime during the day...... It's completely killing me as to how badly the drips and drops of stray paint has shown up in them..... I apologize. I'm pretty darn sure I'll be scraping and spraying them down with "oops" tomorrow and the next days. I don't think they are as noticeable as they are in the pictures so please...... please overlook them.
Obviously the shots above are of the outside. The owners were very "on the spot" and did their best to get the door and the awning painted before we opened....... as well as the grass mowed. I found that very nice.
This is the view when you first walk into the shop. I think we were busy pricing some of the fabric at this time as there seems to be some missing. I brought my star from home that my husband made for me to fill up space since we didn't get our order in on time..... I'll explain that in another post....... my nerves won't allow it as of yet. The apron that is on the dress form is the one I made months ago....... I took home everything I needed to make the sample of the "Flouncy Little Apron"...... except for the neck strap so I had to improvise.
This shot is next to the shelf from the photo above.
Okay....... here comes the cruddy paint........ sorry! This is the view from in front of the vanity. We haven't arranged the cabinet at the time of the picture....... explains the unfinished look.
This is our cutting table, office wall and some of our patterns that we have hanging on some red peg board. And the big ole Coke on the counter........ icy cold!
Good grief........ who painted? It's crazy the things you notice........ can you tell it's bugging the doody doo out of me? Side note: See that cat on the left? My crazy Mom bought that thing for the shop........ it has a motion sensor and moves, blinks, purrs and meows when someone goes near it. It managed to make about 15 women lose bladder control. Debi and I took turns thinking up ways to dispose of it all day long. Meow, blink, blink!
And the princess enjoying her castle. Must be nice!
All in all.... we're happy. We know we have so much more to do to make it polished but with a little time, creativity and alot of patience......... it's gonna be great! Thanks so much to everyone out there who has shown so much support! You're truly friends to me and wish so much to thank you in person! You all know who you are ..... Meredith, Lotta, Rhiannon and you've given me so much confidence! Truly!
