I Missed You All

Hi everyone, Sorry I haven't posted in a while. It has been a wild and sad time for me. First things first, my grandfather got really sick in April. He never recovered, and he past away in May. I'm not going to lie this really hit me hard. Harder than I thought it would. He was always there, and I'm going to miss him greatly. My grandmother seems to be taking it well, but she needs time. They were married for almost 60 years, she must miss him more than I do. My only regret is the fact I didn't have my last goodbye with him. It hurts me very deeply, I was doing a show when he was really critial and could not get away. My mother said he would have understood (he was about family, but he always instilled in us to do a good job, and finish what you start). It doesn't make me feel any better, but they say time heals all wounds.
On another note, I'm still doing Scotts Antiques Market. I'm having fun meeting people and selling great stuff (pics are coming). I have a new partner, her name is Lorene, she is great. I love the fact that she is fun, full of energy, and has great ideas. We did the show last month across from each other and had a ball. So this month we are going to be in one big booth together. I can't wait.......
BTW I'm doing pillows (I know pics are coming), and I'm working on a little project I call the Tu-Tu vanity stool. I was inspired by Lorene, she found a little round table and a tu-tu, we both looked at each other and I knew what she was going to do. She slapped that tu-tu on that table and WA-LA, a tu-tu table. I like it so much I decided to translate that to a vanity stool (I know pics are coming).
Finally I'm doing a design job. Its Lorene's house, she liked what I did at the show and my own house she asked me to do her house. I think thats a great compliment. She already has great style and taste (her shell work is fabulous, great walls, floors, her baths and kitchen). She just wants me to add the finishing touches. I love that part of the job.
Well thats it for me, I hope all my friends in blogdom are doing well (I have a lot of reading to do, and comments to post). Thank you to everyone who was concerned about me. Well today is a go out and find some junk to sell day. I'll get pics for you.
See everyone soon.........
