A New Venture

A couple of posts ago I wrote about a new door that was opening to me and I wasn't sure if I should go through it or close it and walk away.

Like most women I know I have the usual responsibilities: wife, mother, volunteer, job, etc. Plus with two boys, ages 13 and 10, and a airline pilot/military reservist husband who is not often home, I have a pretty full plate! So, piling on something else seemed a little daunting!

If you've been reading this blog for awhile then you already know about the barn sale I joined a few months ago. It was a dream come true for me and I absolutely love everything about it. The only problem is we only have shows twice a year. I had so much fun with the first two I did, I didn't want to stop. I really love doing The Barn Show and can't wait for the next one, but that won't be until October.

So in the meantime, a door cracked open. A really fabulous chartreuse colored door as a matter of fact! And guess what? I opened the door and stepped inside!

My friend Molly and I just signed on to be dealers at Chartreuse and Co.. It's a really cool, old dairy barn, that's been in the owner's family since 1942. The cows are long gone and the barn is now home to a monthly tag sale the third weekend of every month. I first stumbled on the barn in January and absolutely fell in love with what Virginia, the owner, and the rest of the dealers were creating there every month. It truly is amazing!

So in addition to the twice yearly barn shows I'll still be doing, I'll also be living out my dream on a monthly basis in an entirely different location, about an hour's drive from my home.

My plate definitely just got fuller, but I figure if I'm doing something I love, it will all work out. Besides, clean houses, balanced meals, and weedless gardens are really over-rated.

Don't you think?

I can't belive it. You are an amazing woman. Where you find the time ... I don't know. Best of luck and I think I have some red paint laying around the house if you want to paint that door.

I was a girl, but clumsy things. I do not know how to cook, sew, above, ca. I have too insipid and tedious, but that's my personality. It's hard to change
