Excuses, Excuses...

Sorry!! It's been a week since I posted. I know that's horrifying. I can't remember the last time I went so long between posts. I feel I owe you all an explanation, so here is my litany of excuses. Firstly, we're preparing for the Winter Antiques Show at work. Though we do eight antiques shows per year, this is the big guy, and it takes an unbelievable amount of work and research to prepare for it. Second, I made a New Years resolution to start taking better care of myself (i.e. drinking less and exercising more). For the last week I've been going to the gym almost every evening, which seriously eats into my blogging time. Thirdly, this time of year gives me serious writers block. In the other seasons its easier to work on and photograph furniture, so the posts happen spontaneously. All this snow and sub zero temperatures in the last couple weeks has made is nearly impossible to work on projects, and even harder to get motivated to tackle things. That being said, I haven't forgotten about you dear blog readers, and I solemnly swear to do twice as many posts in the next week to make up for it.
I hope you're staying warm wherever you are!
Here are some pictures from last year's Winter Antiques Show.


  1. Drinking less???? Blasphemy!

  2. This is just gorgeous! I think you absolutely have an amazing job.

    I really enjoy your blog - you've inspired me to paint old pieces of furniture to give them a new look, which is so fun! So thank you for the time you take to do this blog. If it has to go on the back burner so you take better care of yourself, your readers understand. Take care!
