Make them go away...the boxes...

I think Piper and I have unloaded 10,000 boxes and there are still more...everywhere we look there's more boxes and more boxes...
and I haven't even been shopping...!!!
GEESH...!

We got the Candle Shed sign hung on the gazebo and looky...
more boxes...sigh...


...and then there was ...white...ahhhh...
I haven't even begun to play in this display!
The soaps are filing in, the cupboards are filling with candles...
AND...
we had our first two sales!!!

Yippee...

...this makes it all better, the hard work is worth it all!!!

SOON...

It already looks wonderful, boxes or not.

Besides, boxes are treasure troves...you could probably charge customers to dig through the boxes!

Looking good. Hoping to make it there in a couple weeks....or sooner if I just run away.

Sharon, I feel your pain. To me, moving is avoided at all costs. My son and middle daughter just bought new houses and I have never seen so many boxes. I swear I'm just going to leave all my stuff for them to pour through.

Good luck on your new venture! Looks like hard work, but fun and rewarding too!

What a terrific amount of work. I too hate the thought of moving, and having done it only a few times in my life I hope I don't have to again.

But looking at your new 'digs', all I could say to myself was, "what a happy clutter". I only wish I lived a lot closer to see it in person. What treasures must be there.

I cannot believe the LIGHTNING SPEED with which you have accomplished so much! I'm flabbergasted! I live just outside of Phoenix, AZ and I'm dying to come to Iowa just to see your new shop. Good Luck!

I know it's such a lot of work but look what you'll have when you're settled. It's all looking great. I'm certain you're on your way to fame and fortune. Have a fantastic weekend. Jan
