Comfort Zones and Spring!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and I feel a sense of calm about it all. I decided to start selling my painted furniture in my boutique and I couldn't be happier. This turquoise piece is the newest to date...everything else sold before I could photograph it. Finally spring fever has broke loose here in Oklahoma. After a successful spring open house I am finally able to take a breather and do some reordering. I ventured out and purchased some different things for the boutique like the cake stand you see in the photo and it sold within hours along with the metal perpetual calenders that are displayed in the drawer of the dresser... those went even quicker! I am always a little leery when I place an order, as one never knows what people will spend their money on... especially in these times. I was reluctant to purchase a lot of spring but I am learning to just follow my instincts and have faith that success will follow. Like my husband says "the good Lord has never let us down" and he will provide. Amen!

It's Been A While...

I cannot believe it has been so long since I have posted! I have come to the conclusion that I am not much of a multi-tasker but I am working on it. Too much too soon. I have been training for a half marathon and it requires so much of my time. I have let spring sneak up on me this year. My husband and I have decided it is time to plant our dream garden before it's too late into the season. I have to admit I cannot wait to get my hands in the dirt, get some mud on my boots and taste the fruits of our labor. My brother and I are doing this "together" from across the country and I am so interested to see the results as we live in different zones and he is much better at this than me. Thank goodness we have so much in common as we can sit and talk about our interests for hours and we are usually on the same brain wave without even knowing it. (kinda like the twin thing but we are 10 years apart) I wanted to share this with you, as it is my go to for all my gardening needs. Happy Spring everyone!
