Inside the new home of B. Catherine Designs . . .

Here is some pics of the front room when you walk in.  Then it bumps out to my office area.

I have my bags behind me, lots of ribbons, tissue paper, printer, & lots of goodies.  Everything within easy reach.

I just adore this stationary!!  The goodies they have at holiday time is to die for!  Untill I find a Fab desk to display, the glass top & collums works just fine.

Back to the shop today, looking foward to a busy holiday weekend!

We are almost there. . . . .

We have been working like crazzy at the shop!!
Today the sign was installed!!!
Almost all set up inside, just need to tag everything.

I found this great little conversation bench on the side of the road.

After a good cleaning & some warm shabby paint, just too sweet!!

Its perfect out front, with some flowers & my Shabby Lane Shops mag's, perfect spot to sit & rest a while.  My kids fit perfectly on it to!

I have so many favorite spots in the shop and this is one of them!  I just adore these angel chairs.

I found this little treasure in Lake George & knew I had to have it for over my desk.  The perfect amount of sparkle!
 We have so much done & Grand Opening is Friday!!
My dream is coming true & its so hard to believe its really happening!!
Hugs to all,

We are opening a Shop!!!

This is my dream come true!!
We are opening a store front!!
1232A Grundy Avenue in Holbrook

This all happened in about 4 days, saw the shop & got the key!  So far we have been busy painting everything & ordering shop supplies.  

I am adding a special wall treatment to the front room when you walk in. 
My Husband rocks!!  He painted the entire side room while I fauxed, its a huge room too!  All with our 2 kids playing & our furry daughter playing beside us.
We had a couple misshaps.  We thought, sure let the kids paint the radiators outside, keep them busy.

So in case you can't tell, my son steped in paint, his shoes are recked, ohh & this was on mothers day.  So we had to run for new shoes before meeting the family out for diner! 
Crazzy, hard working, beautiful Mother's Day!!

So while driving to a friends house with the kids, I see out of the corner of my eye, a dining room set on the side of the road.  I pull over & ask the man if its really for trash??  They family is moving & does not need the set anymore.  Its a 3 yr old set, in great condition & beautiful.  So in my car it goes!!! Now I have a Dining Room set for the shop!
While loading the furniture in my car & making trips back & forth to my house, we need to stop & watch the family of geese try to decide what side of street they want to be on.

Keeping the kids happy watching this sweet little family go back & forth, back & forth, traffic stopping, all while the kids are telling each other "mommies crazzy, we are late for our play date!"   Only I find these treasures on the side of the road!!  Its a surprise, I will show the set soon  :o)
As work gets done I will post more pics & share more stories.
This is an amazing journey & we are all so very excited!!
As my dream of owning a Shop comes true!!
To be continued!!
