Lighten up!

Good Morning. After a dreary and very rainy day yesterday, we woke up to sunshine.....sunshine but very high winds. Can someone tell be that Spring is RIGHT around the corner...PLEASE?!  I think if I had sunshine and warm weather I would feel better. Tim and I attended Ladies Night at Armstrong Valley Winery on Saturday night. We were there selling our "wares" to the lovely ladies that were there to shop and be pampered.

Our table at Ladies Night..we were still setting it up when I took this picture. Notice the Tasting Room sign? Not to brag but Tim and I made it for the winery. It was an honor to do it but I was a nervous wreck..I hate doing custom orders...but I am happy with how it turned out and thankfully so was the Winery :)

It was a really fun time...but I think I brought home a bug..yep a cold bug...grrrrr! Not feeling great and I am still debating if I will open the Shop today or just crawl back to bed.
 We made some changes in our Shop this year. We painted the walls of the Shop a white more dark walls. It is funny since we painted it customers have been asking us when we got the stove....this stove....

We had this stove since the day we opened..5 years ago!

I am guessing since we lightened up the walls of the Shop, "things" are "sticking" out the stove. I am loving the new if I could get Tim to allow me to paint the wood siding of the Shop..would LOVE to paint it a white wash...not sure if that is going to happen anytime soon ;)

I think the fireplace stands out more with the lighter walls.

 I was so tired of the dark prim look. Now don't get me wrong we will still have some prims in the Shop but not as much...we are adding some other "styles" of ECLECTIC mix!

Here are some pictures of some new items that I have been creating for the Shop. I have a notebook full of new ideas of things that I want to stay tuned...2013 is going to be an exciting year of changes at the Brickhouse!

Thanks for stopping by our blog..... Now I think I am going to go and  soak up some rays of sun that are shining through our windows this morning. Have a great day!

Hi Patti ~~

Your stuff is beautiful! I am glad you stopped by my blog so that I could come find you here...

I like the light and airy look better too...when we bought our little cottage, the walls were all dark weird-ish colors (turqouise, robin egg blue, royal blue) and the first thing I did was prime and paint everything light colors.

I'll be back !
