Do you know what I am talking about? Its that feeling you get when you are doing something you love and feel so accomplished with?? The warm and giddy kind of feeling :). That's been me this week. This whole time I have been at the Poet, I haven't felt good about my booth. At the beginning of this week, I felt like I needed to build a awning out of old wood......so that's what I did! Well, with my little brothers help, I did it. Building it was easy...putting it up on a concrete wall --- NOT so easy. Lets just say I was popping the IBprophen that night (haha.....I really was sore!) Anyways, there is a gorgeous old house downtown Monroe that I have noticed a lot of wood on the porch. The house has been undergoing renovations for a few months. So I contacted the owner and asked if he had any wood he could spare. He said he did!!! So here I GO --- (now I could do this allllll day long!) --- I pull up in the yard and start asking away about what he needs and what he doesn't need. I left with plenty of wood for the awning and a awesome old door......everything I needed in abundance (you know the Lord said He would do that for us when we trust Him! -Luke 6:38 & Prov. 3) Now, to someone else, getting a lot of old rotten wood may seem so ridiculous. But to me......it was the BEST! You see......God DOES care about our own secret desires. He knows things in our hearts that no one else may ever know or understand. But He cares......because we are His number 1 priority!!! So that has been my week! Here are some pictures for you to see the DRAMATIC changes that have been made this week,. I am so very happy with it now.
Do you see that I painted it "Chocolate kiss"?! I am loving this color!!! I painted a lot of my apartment this color. Its great......it goes with everything and every season.....and it is such a rich warm hue......
Yep.....that is my prized ole' door! I think the lamp inside adds such warmth!
This BED!!! Hands down - this is my favorite piece I have ever had. Seriously!!! The crackled paint and shabbiness is perfect. All original!!!
I enjoy this business so much. I hope you are living a life that you enjoy.
I have not forgotten about adding pictures of my apartment on here. It is taking longer than I thought it would to get put together!!! But as soon as its done.....I will add those pictures for you to see my little nest!
Alright....after a long days work, its time to hit the hay. Have a great rest of the week --- hang in there....the weekend it almost here!
Blessings in His Love forever....
Seek first (above your wants and desires) My kingdom (My way of living and doing) and My righteousness....then all these other things SHALL BE added to you in abundance. Matthew 6 - this is true and so worth it!

Alright, I am in my larger booth at the Poet now! I now have about 40 more square feet than I had before. It was a great move, too, just right across the isle! Last week, I didn't post anything because I wasn't really happy with it, but I took a few things up there today and got things moved around. I am very pleased with it now :)
Check this mirror out --- another one my brother made. But I love this one more than the first! It is the perfect size! I am very tempted to keep it for my new apartment :)..........
One more picture......I have put a few harvest signs in my booth. I am so ready for fall and cold weather! I can't wait to see all the leaves change...for pumpkins.....for hay......fir deer meat (oh yes, I love deer meat --- I am a country girl!) !
This is my favorite time of year!!!
This is all for today. Hopefully everyone has had a great week. The weekend is almost here.....praise the Lord!!! I am moving into a apartment we have over out garage next week....so I will post pictures when I have it painted and decorated. There will be lots of "shabbiness" up there, you know!
Have a great evening!
"Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in little....now I will make you ruler over much." Matthew 25:23 ......Lord, help us be faithful in the little things.
