To paint or not to paint..that is the question!
Well I finally finished painting the store and re-arranging some of the display furniture. I must say that I do love the new color. It reminds me of chocolate milk and looks great with all the cream I have in the store. It can be hard choosing a new paint color, but I feel sometimes you just have to go for it and use your instincts. If you don't like it, it's only paint, you can always change it again. It amazes me how a little paint can change the whole look of a room or even furniture. So if your tired of the same old same old, then paint .....you'll be happy you did!
Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
