What a great Day today was!

I finished few projects from 2 posts ago. I have been stuck on white for a couple of years because few of my spaces required white to follow the decor of the shop..... shabby white, cottage white, stressed white. I do love it but I am finally free to do what I really want. I love color and still scared to go back I am introducing it a little bit each day in my work.

Finished the 16 signs for Margie and delivered them today.



then.....we had a field trip! Few friends came from San Diego and Matilda's Mouse was having their event. So much fun, Christie took more photos of the inside. Check her blog in a couple of days.

Here is Andrea leaving with my bicycle, well not mine but I really was thinking about it.


then Surprise! Katy from Roseville showed up. So cool to see her here down South. Katy sales up in Roseville at The TatteredHouse.




then back to Rainbow to see Jeff and Candy at Silverado Salvage Yard. He had just unloaded the trailer. Yummy! I got some cool stuff, but that's another post....







I got a gift from Jeff, Little Bo Peep.
she is going on a bottle of course.

What a great day, thank you to my simple life and friends, let's do it again!

Ciao for now
Rita
