Oh my gosh, I was so excited that I just had to share the pictures of our new shelf/blanket crane!

It arrived at the shop, was set on the floor and sold with 5 minutes! It is WONDERFUL! What a statement this would make. It is 4 feet wide and quite deep. Can't you just see it with a beautiful old quilt, throw or textiles hanging from the crane? I also love the little candle shelf and peg at the other end.
Never fear, another one will be at the shop by Wednesday. This should be a great week, a medium size, primitive island will also be delivered sometime before the week is over. Can't wait! Can you tell I'm excited? The island will have a wooden spoon holder on one end and pegs on the other.
This morning has been a dream come true. We were able to relax, drink coffee and watch a movie. BUT, time to get moving. We have a birthday party to go to this afternoon (really we're celebrating 4 birthdays). Our Caroline is now 3, Sydney is 4, Ellie is 6 and Gannon will be turning 14. All 8 of our grandchildren should be there, so it will be lots of fun.
The weather in Michigan has been COLD the past few days with a little snow. It is supposed to rain tonight with freezing temps. Hope everyone gets off the roads and stays safe in their cozy nest.
We'll talk again real soon.
Until next time...

  4. What a gorgeous blanket crane...don't you just love it when things get sold that quickly! Sometimes its bittersweet though for me, cause sometimes I like to enjoy a few things...but it gives us shop owners the chance to go out and buy more goodies for our customers! Stay warm and take care..hope the birthdays went well. Janice
