Good Sunday morning friends. And what a Sunday this is! We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel of our new home. Today we will be staining doors, painting the last old cupboard, finishing the kitchen floor and trying to wrap up as much as we can. The carpet will be installed on Tuesday and THEN THE FUN BEGINS! I'm getting so excited to move things in and see what it is REALLY going to look like - I can only imagine at this point. Oh yes, simplicity, it can't come soon enough. That wood stove is beckoning to wrap up in a soft afghan and watch a sappy movie!
I just wanted to thank everyone for their inspirational ideas on the blog. I just LOVE how the walnut stain looks after you paint and sand a piece of furniture and cupboards. What a difference! My hubby is even impressed.
Also, Holly Hills Primitives news! As appreciation to all of our wonderful customers, we are having 50% off all fall and Halloween and (for this week only) 20% off all furniture in the shop. We sure have some great pieces and what a time to save. Doesn't everyone love a "new" antique as the holiday approach? We have pie safes, hoosiers, dry sink, trunks, beds, tables... (just to name a few). Stop in and get in on the savings while you can.
I am going to be closed on Nov. 1 and 2 to do a total redo of the shop for Christmas. The elves have been SOOO busy bringing in box after box. There will be so many beautiful handmade items and one-of-a-kinds for you to choose from.
Don't forget that Holly will be hosting Ladies Night Out on November 13 from 5-9. This is one of the best nights of the year in town. Our shop is even going to have live music this year! More info to follow.
Well, time to get busy! Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
Until next time...
