I'm Opening Up My Own Shop!!!

Yes, I'm doing it. I'm opening up my own shop!!!



This has been a dream of mine for so long, I can't even remember when it wasn't. My sisters have encouraged me to go for it, and they are right! Thanks sisters!!!

This is the door to the shop. I love how heavy, and old it is. And it has glass!!!



This is the inside from the window. It is perfect!!!



This is the view from the closed door, (I don't have a key yet), looking out the front window. I am so excited, I can hardly breathe !!!



More details later. Have a womans coffee to go to at Tims.

Hugs from Maine

Hey Lisa,

I am not sure what the stuff I have is called. It says metallic rub on and I purchased it over 10 years ago at a little rubber stamp shop and have not seen it anywhere since. I have seen other people post something that looks like it does a similar effect called Rub N Buff. I think you can get it at Hobby Lobby. I was going to try that next as my little pallet of stuff will be running out soon. Congrats on the new shop. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Sounds like a ton of fun.

Hi Lisa,

I just found your blog (I think through Nester) and I really like it. You have done a great job here!

This is really strange, but I'm pretty sure that I know you IRL, originally from the library way back when.

Congrats on getting the store...how amazing!
