Dizzy....

The back...of the Booth...at Heart....The Amazing Alter...Flanked by these two windows.. these would have the Two bottom Panes of glass removed...Leaving the Arched Top... the window Frames...elevated...16 to 18 inches...from the floor...then...the empty openings.... layered with mirrors...of every shape...and size.... oh yes... The Alter...Layered...in Massive Pieces...of Tarnished Silver.... sprinkled....with fresh cut stems...of Spring Florals....Moss...tucked...throughout....I would construct a backdrop....14 feet tall...with  Vintage Burgundy Velvet Stage Drapes...Flowing Over....and around the entire...back wall...drapey...swaggy... and.. Oh...Yes... hang the Massive Beaded Chandelier...just off to the Right Side....
Yes...Yes...Over the Frickin' TOP!!!! BEAUTIFUL...I can see it ALL...In My MIND!!!!
There is One Teeny...Tiny...little Problem....
All of it Sold.... Yesterday....{Thanks Sweet Pea...for the Referrals...}
I have a show this weekend... below zero temps...and 6 to 8 inches of snow on Friday...
Then...I leave...for Nashville.... one week from Monday....Truck...partially loaded... I have a load on the Ford... now...I have to unload... then...back on the road...
I'm not....worried... I Trust.... but...I know... there will be some hurdles.... this isn't a Show....I'm preparing for...It's...'THEE'.... show...I have Wonderful Treasures.... but...there is something about...Over the Top... That I Love! So.... I'm Running Hard...My Frozen Gears...are Spinning!!!!!!!!
I'm also getting everything Else ready...a little touch up...here, and there...all takes time...
I have Located some Amazing Windows... I have to go get them...and carry them... some distance... there are 50, or so... and...my lungs...shut down...in this frigid cold... that's my biggest fear... it's way below zero wind chill... but...I have to get them.... I'll be Building a House....in Nashville...with them....Won't be an Alter... but... I'm thinkin'... It Will Be...Over the Top! {and yes...they will all be for sale!}
So...I'm...Dizzy... Spinning... Daughter Liz, says this is when I'm at my Best....I Reckin' So....
Love to ya...

{Brandon {house things} asked me...Why....why would I sell this...now.... Wanda...{Gatherings}.is soooo disappointed...She and Jo Brantley, will be my Helpers, this year...at Heart....What a Dream Team! Wanda is an Amazing Worker...and has a Great Eye...Jo...is an Accomplished Designer...and has worked with Meredith Publishing....Counrty Homes....and Country Gardens Magazines...as well as a contributor, to many other periodicals....... Jo and I shared a booth...several years ago at Heart... I am Honored...to have them with....
All I can say is... I have bills to pay... and...I'm always behind the 8 ball....and...sounds...like these pieces...have found the Perfect Home... That....is what it's all about.... it truly is....!
So...I'm Runnin'! and...Trusting!
{Peg...is in my Dreams...for Next Year... she'll be with us...every step... and...many phone calls...Close!}

Hey Sue!
Whew...Thankfully the Boys were available, to help...with those windows....it was about 2 degrees...in the old School... and 3 flights of stairs... I'm still hacking...tonight...but...I'm also sippin' Champagne... that...seems to help!
We Loaded...Unloaded... Loaded...and...Unloaded...in Frigid Conditions... Those Boys...Amaze...Thank God for them...They offered to come help...at the show...I'm Thrilled! and...There's MONEY in it for them....Big Money!!! {well... the best I can do...} They are worth...a Mil!
I have...an Amazingly Crazy...rest of the week....going... if anyone else.... were to try and squeeze...all of what I am going to attempt to do...in 48 hours... I'd say...They Are Crazy!
But...as we Know...All The Best People Are!
Love Ya Sue!
