I hope you've had a spectacular weekend. We finally got some much needed rain, not a lot, but at this stage anything is welcome. In my case this means I'll have to call the tire man to fix the other tire on the mower and get busy on mowing some of the weeds that have continued to grow. I don't mind a bit, any excuse to be working outside is welcome in my book. Lets move on to the topic of this post. :-)
HERE. This has been my second go around with water damage in my shop, last time was 5 years ago tomorrow Aug. 27. That time it was all in my "war room/work room". I had just received 7 large shipments of Christmas merchandise in, Mr. P was working out of state, it was my birthday weekend, No I don't believe I'll ever forget that incident. At least during that time I was able to remain open, this time I wasn't so fortunate. They say good things come out of bad things. In this case after almost 8 weeks of a lot of hard work I have to agree. This isn't exactly the way I would have planned updating the shop, it's all worked out and I'm pleased with the way things are shaping up.
I've started the fall decorating as you come up to the shop door, hopefully to put a smile on your face and the expectation of things to come on the inside. Because our temperatures are still a bit on the warm side I haven't added a couple of items to the bench, as the days start to cool down I'll share some updates with you. The new Open Sign is on, so please come on in.
HERE. These pictures reflect part of the earlier layout and the dark green carpet.
Every single piece of furniture was moved to a different location as it was brought in out of the pods, except for the coffee station. I want you to feel welcome when you come inside, please help yourself to a cup of coffee while we continue the tour.
