It was an old, neglected house and needed a bit of work to make it into a shop.
See the sign? Yep, that's a headboard. We thought we were quite clever with that.
Funny, how that idea is still around after all these years later.
And here's a before shot of the house. The clean up was a family affair.
Here's the inside when we first walked in.
Yuck...we were crazy. Yes, we were!
The floor in the front room was so bad that hubby fell through it while replacing it. Ouch!
Here's my sweet, loving grandma doing her part cleaning that nasty stove in the kitchen.
Always a smile on her face. I miss her so.
And then there is the story of the wagon I bought at an auction.
I wanted it to display in the yard to draw attention to the shop.
I had to call the hubby to bring his old truck to pull this wagon to the shop.
This wagon was old. It was rickety. It was not meant to travel any more.
Hubby hooked it up the best he could and we were off with me following behind.
We crawled at a snail's pace because of the wagon's poor condition.
The wagon swerved. It weaved. It moaned. It groaned.
But we made it hours later after many stops and adjustments.
I have to laugh about it now. Where there's a will, there's a way.
And here I am behind the counter of the shop at Christmas time.
See that old post office piece behind me?
I bought that at the same auction where I bought the wagon.
It was sitting in the barn with the sheep.
And the sheep had chewed on one of the lower shelves. LOL!
I still have that post office unit. It's in my kitchen and I use it to store my dishes and cookbooks.
And that shelf? I like the chewed up look and left it as is. It tells a story.
I would like to thank everyone for their well wishes in concerning my health.
I really appreciate it and I am almost at 100% again.
I have not had a chance to do some visiting with you all.
The internet has been down for awhile now.
Just waiting for it to be repaired.
Hope you have a good weekend!
