It's so dusty in here!!

Oh my goodness, it is so dusty in here!!! I cannot believe I have not been in here since January!! That is a reallllly great way to create a blog isn't it? Like most if us, the year has just disappeared! I cannot believe it is almost June! I just wanted to be 18!...things have been crazy around here since Christmas...and I guess we could all say the same real job is just crazy and I am booked up most days...Appleberry Farm is just crazy...with all of the new signs madly being created, orders and now with us re-opening the store (so to speak!!) Yes, we have re-opened again after closing the store front...we have done it sharing floor space with Charlicks Bazaar an amaaaazing antiques and collectables store...and it is so exciting, the mess of crazy and frenzied creating...the stock piled about the place...the pricing and recording of bookwork (yeah ok I HAVE NOT missed the piles of stock, the pricing OR the bookwork side of things AT ALL!) But, am totally loving the rest of it!! I am even organised enough to have some piccies to show you..of the new signs AND the new I really am organised!! (for now anyway!!!)
Wrought Iron garden cart full of bells with some of the biggest rusted bells I have EVER seen!! They are 22cm and just gorgeous!!
This is the Halloween Table I made over...LOVE IT! Forgot to take before shots tho duh!!

Some of the DEVINE baskets imported from the USA...filled with pip berries..perfect for anyway OR table!

The door screen Hubby made for me...which I painted burgundy (just like everything else!!) and sanded...perfect for hanging some more goodies!!

Another garden cart with a very pretty shabby quilt, raggedy cushion and of course baskets and stars!!

Another beginnings?

Well 2010 is definately underway...I am already failing miserably at my New Years Resolutions...tho, I put it down to the new year starting mid week. So tommorrow being the FIRST Monday of the FIRST week of the New Year... I will start then. Again. I have so many things that I want to see off on the right path. Of course business is a priority that I hope to get back on track...already have some new designs in the pipeworks, am going to clear out stock on ebay, am going to finish my daughters 18th birthday gift, even tho she will be 20 this year haha. Of course, I am going to use my gym membership EVERY day, not just a few times a week, and I am going to control all the nasty delicious and yummy things that go into my mouth. I should not find it that hard, as eating is not something that I like to do when it is 45*C.....but, someway somehow...well....chocolate is evil and seems to find its way into my face! I would like more patience with my family. To be as perfect as I.....well...sometimes I can struggle with the imperfections of loved ones haha.....I hope that you have all managed to find time to be with your loved ones this past Christmas season....and you are sticking with your resolutions better than I!! If not, maybe you could start again on Monday like I am!! Best of luck!!!
