I must admit, I have never been much of a "follower"......I like to be out there in front figuring out what it's all about and then leaving it for others to enjoy. But sometimes you just have to sit back and listen to what is around you and follow where you are led. My business philosophy has always been to listen to my business and be willing to trust my instinct that what I am doing is right. It hasn't failed me yet. Why all this deep thinking? Well, during the last six months I have been exposed to some wonderful women with creative minds and adventurous souls. We are doing new things and talking about more.......the most exciting of which evolved this morning.
Charlene of My Heart's Ease http://myheartseast.blogspot.com was in the store today and as we discussed the new art group forming within the shop, in walks this wonderful woman who had seen some of my gorgeous antique silk lampshades on Ebay. She had been outbid on them at the last minute and drove all the way to Arlington to see if I had any more or something similiar......and they were for her mini trailer house that she was completely refurbishing in the "Magnolia Pearl" style. We talked, and talked some more and literally caught the bug as she spoke. So now, Charlene and I am going Monday to look at our very own trailer so we can join the traveling caravan of gypsy women out there traveling the country selling their wares.....well, maybe not all the time, but often enough to make Roundtop and all of the other events in the five state area surrounding Texas. The idea of decorating the inside with opulent velvets and marble counter tops making it a "Diva's Haven" is so exciting my mind can't stop bouncing from idea to idea. I don't really know what I'm doing here, or what I'm thinkin', but for some reason Charlene has been put in my life for a reason, so we are jumping right in...... I really don't know what I'm doing, but it just "feels right".........have mercy!
