First let me tell you about this fabulous women. This is my husbands grandmother, Mom-Mom, on her 95th birthday last year. Do you love her princess crown. The sweetest most caring, giving person I have ever met, just a love. But I am sad to say that on January 8th just 7 days after her 96th birthday she passed away. We all miss her so much, she was truly a grandmother to me, not just because I married her grandson but because she stole my heart with her grace and beauty. My son loves to tell the story about way back when, Mom-Mom was the school lunch lady and she would sit down in her kitchen on the weekend and plan the next weeks lunch menu, and then it was all hand made, "Not this junk they try to serve us now". Anyway I just thought that everyone should have had a chance to meet this wonderful women, so here is my way of making that happen.
So lets move on to a happier note. I am so excited to get a chance to finally have a second to update my blog. I have been so busy with the shop and family that I hardly have a chance to think, much less write my thoughts down. Let me tell you about this fabulous desk, I bought it for a customer and I thought it was just the right piece for her daughters room, but I don't think the original picture did it justice. She said no, not exactly what she wanted. So I sent her the pic of the painted, new improved version and WOW! She and of course her daughter fell in love with it. I delivered it yesterday while her daughter was at school, and I'm waiting to hear what she had to say when she got home...now I just need to find the perfect chair.

Now the search goes on for some other rooms in her house an old ceiling tile, some knick-knacks, and a vintage rug, yikes...that's a big task. But that's the part I love ! That one-of-a-kind find. So today I am off with my list of things I need and maybe I'll get lucky and find some other vintage trinkets that i just can't live without. I'll keep toy posted as to what I find and maybe even post a few pics. see you next time. Junk Girl
