In other news, this was my view for half the day on Friday:
I looked out my window to see that, while inside, I was doing this:
At one time, I had this crazy Idea I'd be a sign painter.
Wow am I glad I didn't do that. I start getting squirrelly somewhere around the 3rd coat of paint.
Very very carefully, we lifted the sign into place and Gene secured it to the wall (in lots of places!) Drilling into brick is not fun, and he had to wear hearing protection even.
We're officially official!
BTW, it says "and Gallery" because when we finally get everything settled, I'll be painting in this space also and will probably share some of my artwork there that people can stop in and buy if they like. Or just browse. Or stop in and chit chat. Or annoy me... whatever your pleasure. :)
Hopefully within the next few months it will get even better. We have a couple exciting things up our sleeves and I'll share as we go. Have to keep them secret for a while first though!
I promise that sometime soon this blog will go back to being a blog about something besides a storefront.
