A Cinderella Story

Once upon a time there was a desk/vanity who lived in an
old dark thrift store. Sadly, the desk was ignored until one day.......

.......the desk was cleaned up and dressed with a beautiful blue shade of fresh paint along with a new set of knobs. The desk now shines in The Brushed Bureau at Blacklion (address listed under location info) and will soon ride off into the sunset with its new owner.

Signs of the Times

The Brushed Bureau at Blacklion (Creative Co-Op)

One of the biggest trends that I have recently noticed in today's retail market is positive motivational signage. And, it makes perfect sense because most people of tired of the same old negative "doom and gloom". They are starting to realize that WHAT you focus on expands. Successful and happy people have known this for ages but their secret is finally out. These signs are some of my all time favorites.

It IS easy being green.

So sorry Kermit but you were wrong. It is easy being green.
I have been known to recycle paper, aluminum, plastic and VINTAGE FURNITURE. These are a few of my furniture treasures that have been salvaged with a few coats paint, an electric sander and updated hardware.
