I have been away...but busy...



So after being renters for about a year and a half, hubby and I decided we wanted to buy a small house...
So for our first project, we decided to renovate the garage and loft...

As you can see...it's really not pretty...
The open door against the back wall led to stairs that were so steep that it was like climbing a ladder...




And it just did not have any attractive qualities at all...





So we built real stairs...


Lined a wall with cedar, and refinished the workbench..

And also worked a bit on the actual house...
But we are a long way from being done...
So we keep on working and remodeling 
And working and remodeling...that's why 
I've been gone from blog land...
But business at Stars Antique Mall continues to flourish,
As does biz at Grand Marketplace...
And my studio is still my happy place...
 I hope to post more often...
And wish you all a happy Labor Day Weekend!
