Reality Sets In~The First Load to Canton

I've been questioning my sanity and wondering if I was actually dreaming.....
Why, just why would I put myself in a position for so much more
Responsibility and work?

Crazy is the only answer I have.

This is my first load to Canton.
I was feeling very inadequate when I arrived and my neighbors
on BOTH sides were there with table saws, drills, and enough
wood to build a small room onto a home.

Travis and I unloaded the heavy items I needed help with
and the ones that will work primarily as my fixtures within
the whole scheme of this vision I have.

 My neighbor on the South of me had extended the wall up almost
two feet.  I had planned to cover my walls with antique lace panels
and old wooden doors, but this threw me for a loop.

How was I going to cover up this ugly.
I decided I'm going to paint the wall abover the iron support in
chalkboard paint....but that is next week.

It seems I already have a "chalkboard thing" going on
with my sideboard chalkboard panels and large over the table chalkboard.

On my North side his construction is a bit different....
These will also be painted out as individual chalkboards,
being "framed" with a different color.....
much like my side door panels...

Below is my wonderful neighbor that just couldn't help me enough.
The one thing I can tell anyone about Canton....
the dealers are the absolute best....
I am so fortunate to be part of that group.

My first open date is August 29th...

All I can say is .....
WOW, these are crazy times!!!

Thanks for stopping by today....
You know I love it when you come!
