~MY WHITE PAINTED WOOD PERGOLA BOOTH SPACE~

   Today I'm showing you really crummy pictures taken of my new booth-space-in-the-making!  Since I left my trusty old camera at home (what respectable blogger does that????) I had to use my daughter's camera phone instead!  So, forgive me in advance for the not-so-great photos!  Promise...better shots are coming soon! 
 Anyway, on Tuesday my Mr. AGPMan and I went down to the Shoppe where I'm going to be opening up a new booth space and got to work!  Together we unloaded almost all the painted wood pieces for the pergola style framework with plans to return on Wednesday to assemble it all.
I'm so loving all my guy has created and I'm so grateful that SOMEHOW he finds time to squeeze in his wifey projects while being in school.... 
Well, today, as fate would have it, our SILove, Micah the Wonderful, showed up just in time (with our beautiful daughter in tow) to SAVE HELP us put it all together.
 Micah is almost a foot taller than I am and it was MORE than fabulous having his rough and tough self to help out!!!  Our two guys had the framework all screwed  together (nope, no nails!) in no time.  I have no idea WHAT I'm doing in front of this cabinet...looks like I'm trying to keep it from falling over or something....????
 While Adrienne and I stood around and watched our men work the two of us did little more than scream out the occasional WATCH OUT! and BE CAREFUL!  Nearly owned myself a broken curved-glass cabinet and LOTS of damaged $pottery$!

EEEEEEK!

So...the picture above it what my space looks like at present.  Still have the vintage doors and windows to hang along each of the booth's sides and some other architectural things as well.  Before long I'll be working to fill-'er-up...

Sooo exciting!

Now...I didn't get a picture of my beautiful girl, Adrienne, helping us with the booth space so I'm showing you the one taken on Mother's Day.  Now...you might not believe this, but my daughter is several inches taller than I am.  Generally she wears flats while I'm always wearing heels...  So~ she almost always looks shorter than I am!
(My poofy hair helps, too!)
 :)
I love this girl SO MUCH and I'm sooo terribly proud of her!  Beautiful on the outside, but I promise you she's just as beautiful and lovely on the inside as well.
Not many pictures are taken showing my guy's gorgeous blue eyes.  Well here's one that makes me swoon!  After 33 years of marriage I'm still in love with this man!
(Keeper of my heart!)

I'll be back soon with more to share!  Hope your week is going great!

Love to you from a tired and very, very sore,

Can't wait to see your booth when it's all set up. Wish I could visit it too, but living in Australia sort of counts that out. All the best.

I would certainly think so... can't wait to see your booth all fufu'd up when you are finished... your daughter is beautiful... just like her mama... xoxo Julie Marie PS MR. AGP's eyes are gorgeous too! Love those baby blues...

Hello Rebecca! This Pergola is turning out beautiful! I'm not surprised, you have a great team helping you! :) It's cute that you call your SIL your Son In Love...I call me son's wife the same..only Daughter...and call my MIL, Mother In Love. It sounds SO much more endearing, doesn't it? ;) I've missed visiting you. You are a blessing to so many....Take Care...and BEST of BLESSINGS on your new venture with the booth! I wished I lived nearby so I could come visit it!

Hugs from GA...

Debra @ Common Ground said...

This is looking great, can't wait to see it filled with all your wonderful goodies!!

Melissa said...

Hello! Thank you for stopping by, especially in the middle of your big move-in/prep event!
I did NOT know that my pin was Guilloche. I looked it up and I am amazed at the technology involved in something so small. Thank you for filling in that blank. Blessings!

You don't look a bit tired in the pic, what I see is a beautiful couple happy and in love. I haven't known you very long but feel somehow that I have, don't know why. I used to have a booth a few yrs. ago and enjoyed it so much, but as I said before my dh had a stroke and seems like the world shut down for us. Continued love and happiness to you both. Hugs...Lu

Jen said...

Fun to see your booth before everything goes in Rebecca. I can't wait to see the after when you've completed your magic.

Terrific picture of you and your daughter!

My honey has very blue eyes as well. Married 33 years this fall and still love my guy too.

A good soak and good night sleep and you will be as good as new! lol

Take care
Jeannette

Rebecca,

What a lovely picture of you and your daughter. You look so much alike. It is so wonderful that you are still in love with your husband after 33 years. I feel the same about mine after almost 20 years of marriage. It is so wonderful!
Blessings,
Amy Jo

Dearest Rebecca,

That is a lovely pergola space for your shoppe!
Had to sneak peak the previous post as we just got home today after a 7-hour trip by car (we were chauffeured however) from Port Canaveral where our 5-day cruise to the Bahamas started and ended. Lovely relaxing time and no blogging...
By the way, your husband does have special blue eyes (mine too!) but you were the dominant person in passing the color on to your daughter...
Love to you and enjoy the weekend!
Mariette

Roselle said...

Dear Rebecca:

What fun! Can't wait to see it filled with all your pretties and your magical touch. You are an inspiration! Oh and WHERE did you get that gorgeous black blouse/top? You are all adorable! My beloved has gorgeous blue eyes too :::swoon:::

Have a great weekend! I am so behind on blogging so I will peek around here :)

Rebecca I am doing a little series on booth displaying. I would love to show off your pergola that you made for your space and am wondering if that would be ok, and if so is there a way I can copy the picture with a link to you?

Thanks so much!
