Fall Open House...

Hi Everyone!  My Fall Open House was this past weekend and it was wonderful.  I'm almost at a loss  for words except to say that I feel extremely blessed.  I took a chance and had it Friday and Saturday because the town festival was also this weekend.  Friday was the best day, Saturday was almost as good and then Sunday, I received several calls asking to come out and had several more sales and a couple of orders.  The Studio was full on Friday and I'm sitting in it now and it feels empty.
I moved a lot of the pieces that were already in my Studio around since the last Open House giving it a better flow.  I moved the pay counter to behind the front door and switched out the large black piece for this smaller rolling cart that had been my kitchen island pre-remodel.  I painted the base grey and the top old white then added my banner to the front of it.  I really want to paint on the new design like I did for the outdoor sign.  That's on my to do list for this winter.
 This post is picture heavy but I'll just let you take a look at the pictures.

 The paintings on this table were done by my artist friend Heather.  She is so talented!  I have one of her painting in my living room of a windmill.

I want to say thank you to all of those that came out and supported me, told their friends and family about it and even brought people out to see my Studio.  It was a great weekend.  The sales were great and I received a handful of orders that I need to get started on plus I have less than three weeks (just two weekends) to get ready for my big show at Clarinda.  Thank goodness I am about half ready for it.  Thanks for stopping by.
