What's Been Goin' On...

5 kids,

4 adults,

1 dog

and a hundred little green army men are under my 1700 sq ft roof these days and it is glorious. Most of the time.

Jeanetta and Co. have been camped out this past week while they look for a house in Conway. It has not been a seamless search... They have made 2 offers and watched them go to other buyers. They have had their hopes up and down and all around, while they waited for their house to sell back home, and waited to hear about houses here.

They had intended to go home Friday morning, but fate intervened and they are still here (hurrah!) and still looking (argh!!) for a place to rest their heads in Arkansas. The blessing in all this has been that the forced extension of the visit meant that Jeanetta was here to work her magic on our new Shoppe space and oversee the painting of the "French Salon" stripes!!!! We worked from 6-Midnight last night, but we got it done!!! Woo hoo!!


We were painting over the previous tenants faux marble paint treatment so you can see the yellow peeking through as we paint.


Now it is all finished and we can start moving the goodies in. Of course most of the furniture pieces are piled sky high on the back patio or in the back of my car, waiting to be finished themselves... Hmm...maybe they will have to stay till Monday now...
