I cannot lie….although the snow is quite beautiful and serene, the winter season is the hardest for me, and this winter, in particular, has been so.
As you may or may not have heard, I broke my foot on October 2 and the healing process has been long and extensive but I praise the Lord that it IS healing….still! I am now on a bone simulator to help speed up the process, and I am in my second week of wearing two shoes! (no more boot!). What that wonderful boot did for me, though, was to cause other body parts to be sacrificed in their mobility abilities. (That’s a tongue twister!) So….I am now in physical therapy two days/week through March!
And just yesterday this was the sight in the front yard of Burlap & Lace….the promise that Spring is coming! And how like God to give me a PINK flower to boost my morale! Pink is absolutely my favorite color (I know, so girl-like!), and I don’t mind showcasing it.
And with Spring comes what has become my “I can’t wait for it to arrive” moment…Vintage Market Days of Asheville! And if you’ve followed me for long, you know this will be my third event there. So what does that mean?
That despite 20 degree weather, snow and ice, I will be painting and getting ready for March 16-18, 2018!And I will be hunting down the chippy, worn, rusted beauties to adorn my booth space….
AND, I will have pillows made from vintage linens….
And other rare, but handmade goodies from vintage chenille….
and then there will be the usual surprises in furniture pieces, tableware, garden delights and so much more!
So what does any of this have to do with my expansion at Burlap & Lace? And what IS the expansion I am talking about????
Beginning February 8, I will be opening on extended days and hours. These will be posted on Facebook, but go ahead and plan on seeing me more in the months to come as noted here:
Sunday: CLOSED Monday: CLOSED Tuesday: 12:00 – 5:30 Wednesday: 12:00 – 5:30 Thursday: 11:00 – 5:30 Friday: 11:00 – 5:30 Saturday: 11:00 – 7:00
In March, I will be CLOSED for two weeks in order to be at Vintage Market Days and then to dress up the shop again to reopen. Those two weeks will be the weeks of March 5 and March 12.
Now don’t worry…..Just follow me on Facebook and my hours will be updated weekly until after Vintage Market Days when I will land on a permanent schedule through the end of the year. I still need time to shop for great finds, paint those great furniture pieces and wall art, AND change the venue weekly at the shop so that you nor I get bored!
Until we meet at Burlap & Lace, you’ll find me dreaming of warmer days and spending a lot of time sprucing up my garden room…..simply to delight my heart!
