I had been thinking about it for a few weeks,trying to talk myself out of it and then, I saw LeAnn's new kitchen...I was inspired to get busy! I re-painted my kitchen! It was a taupe color with cream and accents of blue. So, after much is now "MACARONI"...yep, the color on un-cooked pasta. I love it! It is surprising how much pleasure you can get out of 1 gallon of paint! Makes everything look clean and bright! I love the fact that you can fill in nail holes and just start over. I still have no ideas on what to put on the wall behind the kitchen table. It is a blank slate. I have a chalk board on another wall (LOVE chalk boards in old frames), have small shelves on two walls, mirror on one....not coming up with anything. Any suggetions? I am also encluding a picutre of my "inspirational plate". I found it at a garage sale on Friday for $1.00. It sealed my decision on paint color! Isn't it beautiful?

SALE DAY - June 2008

It finally arrived and is now just a memory......the paper roSe summer sale!!!! I deem it a success!!! In spite of the rain on Friday, we were busy from the time we opened the doors at 4 until we closed at 7. Saturday was a BEAUTIFUL day, and we were steady from 10 until 5. I met so many lovely people that were traveling through town and had seen the sign, and just stopped in to check things out. THANK YOU to everyone that came. I am so thankful for the support. A special thank you to Myra for baking and decorating a zillion mini cupcakes and a BIG BIG thank you to my sweet daughter, Sara, who took time off from work to drive down and help me. Also, to my hubby, Rich who was working behind the scene,taking pictures, keeping the food supply going, etc. I am also including pictures of my new "grand-baby"..Molly. Sara adopted a rescue puppy. We are all in love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is too, too adorable!!!! We hate to see her leave. Her and Maggie look like sisters. What a pair they make.
