Before pictures of our Kitchen

I posted a month ago showing pictures of our 8 DOOR kitchen.I finally found some before pictures of our kitchen...thanks to our good friend Penny! Penny took pictures of our kitchen when she was visiting PA . She lives in Florida and read our blog and realized that she had pictures of our kitchen. ...well thanks to Penny I can now share the before pictures. It is amazing what a couple coats of paint can do to change the look of our kitchen!
I am trying to put all our photos on Picturetrail..and I have a lot to learn! I need to spend some time this weekend learning my way around it. In the meantime, click here to see the before and after pictures of our kitchen:

Tim and I are so excited...The Brickhouse has some AWESOME new goodies...Thanks to our new friend/crafter, Beryl. I will be posting pictures of her stay tuned!
Have a wonderful weekend and please stop by our porch again.

What's New...

Busy times here at The Brickhouse Craft Shop. Tim is knee deep in saw dust! He has been so busy cutting wood. He has been making birdhouses and as soon as he makes one it sells. He is having a hard time building up his inventory! I have been complaining to him that he doesn't make any for me..I love his birdhouses and I don't have any in my gardens! All these birdhouses I have pictured here are sold and waiting for our customers to come and pick them up. Lucky customers..wish I could keep them!

I have been busy painting and staining and also contacting our new crafters.

Make sure you stop by the Craft Shop in the next couple of months and see what is new from our new friends and from our "old" friends. Tim and I are so proud of the wonderful talented friends that are busy crafting goodies for our customers. The Brickhouse has the best crafts from the best talent right here in the USA!
AND we have some talent right here in our family....Tim's sister, Christine makes beautiful yo~yo wreaths.. they are so nice. For some reason, my camera made this wreath look brighter than the colors really are..this wreath is really beautiful...stop by The Brickhouse and see all her beautiful wreaths!

AND guess what else is new...or should I say WHO else is new? Meet my new Great Nephew, Hunter..... he is a cutie and such a good baby.
So that is a little of what is new at The sure to stop by and see for yourself all the new goodies.

Christmas in July

Tim and I hope you all had a nice 4th of July. It was a busy weekend at the Brickhouse...we had a new customer stop by on Thursday and we weren't even open! But we opened for her and she was so nice. We love meeting new people! Friday in the shop was like the day before Christmas...we were SO BUSY! It was great! Some of our regular customers stopped by on is always nice seeing our friends/customers stop by...we start to miss them when we don't see them for awhile! And it is nice to meet our new customers! Then yesterday morning we had a call from one of our regular customers..her daughter was visiting and they wanted to see if we were open..we weren't but I told them to come on over...we opened for them! It is so nice having the Shop next to our home and being able to open anytime.
We are starting to think ahead to Christmas...ONLY 5 more months! I placed some orders yesterday for new items for our Shop. I ordered through a couple of our wonderful crafters, April and Tony, and Becca, AND our special friend/crafter Teresa is working on some great crafts. We also found some NEW crafters and I placed some orders with them...We are excited about getting some new goodies for our shop! Friday night Tarrah, the lovely wife of Bob the Potter, stopped by with some new pieces that Bob created...WONDERFUL pieces of Pottery. I am tempted to buy some of them for myself! Tim and I love his pottery.If you are reading this and you are in our neighborhood please stop by The Brickhouse and see the new pottery!
Make sure you stop by our blog again, we are going to feature Bob the Potter on the "Porch"! He is so talented and so is Tarrah....she showed us a picture of a penny rug table runner that she created! Let me tell you she is so TALENTED, too! Tim and I are trying to talk her in to opening a craft shop in her hometown...We know she would do great, between the Pottery and her! If or WHEN she decides to have a Shop of her own you can bet we will be bragging about it!
If you are a crafter and are interested in selling wholesale..PLEASE send us an email..we are always looking for new crafters. The Brickhouse Craft Shop sells only HANDMADES....NO MADE IN CHINA!
Tim has been busy making birdhouses and he is way ahead of me, so I need to lock myself in the craft room today and paint, paint, paint!
The Church birdhouse that Tim designed is selling as fast as he can make them! SO proud of him! We are also working on some new stop by The Brickhouse and see what we have to offer! And while you are visiting our shop make sure you spend some time PORCH SITTING....the flowers around the porch are blooming and the hummingbirds and butterflies have been visiting the stop by and say hi and enjoy the view.
