to simplify . . .
I so like this idea . . . to keep things simple . . .
but anyone who knows me . . .
knows that this is extremely hard for me to do . . .
as I like to layer . . . :)
My mind races around with all sorts of ideas . . .
from fabric . . . to art, to vintage, to color, to fashion . . . etc . . .
yes . . . we do have dinner as a family
at the table every night . . . right next to some new project
piled high at the other end . . .
but sometimes when you mix family with one of the above
you hit a home run . . . memories that you never expected . . .
like the time we had this past summer as a family
at the Barn House . . .
quite simply - the best memory of the summer!!
but . . . sometimes one can have too much on their plate
and life is not at all simple!!
I discovered this was the case this last Summer as it flew past
and the kids started school again!
I decided to make a few changes . . . to my blog . . .
to the number of vintage shows for next year . . .
to my retail space at Embellish . . .
so . . .
although it is extremely clear to me that this is the right thing to do . . .
it is also extremely hard for me to let you know that . . .
I have decided to close my space at Embellish.
(this was not an easy decision to make - as I absolutely LOVE being there!!!)
Katrina, and the girls have all been so amazing and I have truly felt blessed
each and every day that I have been part of her wonderful and very special store
here on Bainbridge Island!!!
my last day is tomorrow - Sunday - Oct. 3rd.
I am going there today to mark things way, way, way down
as I am hoping not to have to store them!!)
I will sooooo miss being there . . .
but I do know that it is the right decision for myself and my family at this time
(Katrina did say that I can come back . . . so you just never know!!!) :)
If you haven't been to Embellish lately . . . you should really stop in . . .
as Katrina has been bringing in lots of great new merchandise into the store!!!
and soon . . . she is going to have a new blog - I personally can't wait!! (and yes . . . we are waiting on those wedding pictures!!)
Katrina . . . "Thank you" my dear friend . . . from the bottom of my heart!!
