June Beginnings!

 Slowly but surely SHR is starting to come together for the June sale!!  With construction going on it's been a bit slower than usual - but even tho not a lot of set up has happened yet - the treasures are rolling in!  See what I found today!  I love this little suitcase display even tho she's probably not done with it yet!
 Had a tough time getting the lighting right on this photo.  The stand is cool - but the mid-century modern drapes in shades of blue and brown are incredibly awesome!!
 LOVE these old frameless mirrors - even missing some of their silver they add such sparkle to a room!
 Ooooohhhhh, Aaaaaaahhhhhh - beautiful shutters!
 Beautiful vintage cement pieces - there are also a couple cement birds and deer and bases that are just dying to get to a good home!
Susan has 7 or 8 or 9 of these great maps - and I know Peter has a beautiful map box complete with maps too!  They add such color and history to a room.
 Love the buffet and the console table has such great detail - and it is beautiful rich shade of gray.
 The hutch is so pretty don't you think?  But the blue leaded window....ooh la la!
 Another beautiful hutch - such great detail!
 These antique baby shoes are so sweet!
 I am so in love with this light fixture.  It just makes me feel cheerful!
 Almost ready - like most of the spaces and items I was seeing today!
 Not a great photo of this little cement boy - but I had to climb over furniture and take the photo blind!
 Love everything about this little area!
 The colors on this door are the best!
 Love this clock - what a great focal point!
 The boys have been busy making these great signs out of old barn wood.  They have done a good job haven't they?!?!
 Can you say shaggilicious!!
 The shape, the fabric, the comfort, the size........what's not to love about this piece?
 Another great map - and the lamps are perfectly perfect!
 The mirror is to die for - and the birdcage too - in fact I saw quite a few bird cages this month.  Think of all the uses!
 Tripod lamp - wanted by many - will you be the lucky person to take it home?
 Cement birds in the background - and coat hanger with vintage kerosene stove parts as hooks!
 Small pillars and tall pillars..........
 Fall pillars and skinny pillars.......We've got them all this month!
Love this old brooder hood - can't you just seen it hanging on a wall with a mirror inside it ????  Or from a ceiling with a light fixture coming out of it?  Or as a Christmas tree stand?  What would you use it for?

We're In Construction Mode!

Brad has been working hard to give a couple spots a whole new look!  He has expanded our bathroom by cutting into that skinny little hallway that was unused.  Now Dylan will have more display room in the bathroom - and we have a nice "new" vanity - a beautiful dresser worked perfectly!
 That made for changes in the room just behind the desk area too.  The hallway door got closed up and Brad closed off the small closet.  He opened up the closet on the other side so that we now have more storage room in the closet behind the desk!  Now we will all be able to find our cleaning supplies and have a place to hang our jackets and purses!  Kris gets more wall space in her room - which makes her very happy!  The small closet was always hard to set up.  Now as soon Brad is finished with all of his work Kris and Dylan can get in and paint walls and floors.  Yippee!
The added space in the bathroom!  Dylan is quite happy with the new space and they have already stained the floors dark in there.  Gonna be fun to have some new space to share with you for the June sale!
