~PINK ROSE STORE SIGNAGE~
I'm both happy and excited to be back home from Tennessee! In my previous post I shared with you how I was traveling east to my sister's home to work on a few behind the scene things in order to help ready her new shoppe,
for it's grand opening!

Sweet Faux Window Panes
There is still much to do before her precious shoppe opens it's doors to the public and I wish I could have stayed longer to help. I'll share more with you soon about it's opening date! We did manage to transform a vintage bed into store signage and we both love how they came out. We also put up faux window panes and are crazy about how they turned out as well.

My Sister and Miss K
The headboard was used for the larger sign (inside one/ which I FAILED to photograph!) and the footboard which you see above was hung outside under the awning. I'll have you know that they two of us hung that heavy thing up all on our own (well...with only a wee bit of phone-help from my Mr. AGPMan!).
My Miss K was a real trooper on the trip and I so enjoyed having her with me. Not sure I'll ever drive 11 plus hours alone with a 9 year old again...highway construction and delays made me completely NUTS! I'm quite sure K was totally bored to death at times and I'm so grateful she had lots of electronic stuff and books to keep her busy! Once at my sister's house she was included in lots of the activity going on!!! She even did the OPENING SOON Sign (below) for us! Simply the sweetest thing ever! I'll share more pictures, soon....memories in the making!

I did return home with both my arms inflamed with tendonitis and carpel-tunnel. I've been babying them for a long time so not sure what all this means. I was hoping to put off the inevitable (surgery) until January. Doesn't look like that's going to happen! :( We'll see how things go.

My SUV was loaded up and overflowing when I pulled into my driveway at 1:00 AM this morning. That means lots of fun new things and hand painted finds will be coming your way before long! Lots of things for my A Gathering Place website AND my A Gathering Place booth space at Edmond Antiques here in Edmond, OK.
Honestly, I'm very thankful there were no mishaps along the way (there and back!). God is so good. I missed my guy so much and returned home with a renewed commitment to continue to support him WITH JOY during the last four months of his schooling. Still happy November will be here before long and our lives will return to normal...
Missed you all as well! If my arms and hands stay nice I'll be off to visit as many of you as I can over the weekend.
Continuing to live my life with thankfulness...
