My Plans

Some of you asked in the last post what my plans were for 2012.  What will I do with all of those marvelous seconds, minutes and hours?

Well, I plan on being very adventurous.  I plan on taking chances.  Shaking things up a little.  As the year unfolds, I will tell you about my new adventures.

The first adventure I am going on, is opening a booth at an antique mall in Hendersonville, NC.  The antique mall is called Needful Things.  I should be moving in the the next week or so.  I am just waiting for the current tenant to remove the rest of their stuff.
Winter Mantel

I do love a good adventure, don't you?

I will so want to take a trip to Hendersonville to see your booth once set up - will try to work something out at the end of the month perhaps.

Good luck dear, I know you'll be successful. It's hard work to keep things fresh and exciting, but very worthwhile. I so enjoyed having my booth at SuzAnna's Antiques and miss it much.

Bonne Année - and good luck with the shop dear.
Hugs - Mary

Love the mantel's post holiday decor.
