a black damask table and an update...





happy tuesday cottage dwellers! it's been busy here at cottage romance.UPDATE: my business is starting to take off! i posted this bookcase on craig's list and within hours i had a buyer! and it turns out she's my new best client! when she came to buy the bookcase, she spotted this nightstand that i had also posted and bought it too! she told me to email her when i post anything else and i just finished this black table w/ a hand painted damask design in the center so i emailed her and she came and bought it today! thanks L!!!! the other day she told me of a sweet little store in my area that sells cottagey things and antiques and the like. she said they just switched over from and individual business to one that rents space out and that i should go take a look. well, i did and i love it! i am praying about moving in there! it would be a huge leap for me, but i guess i won't know unless i try! i'm just waiting on God for the answer- but it seems like everything is falling into place! i still have to meet w/ the owner of the store and get some more details. so we'll see! i will take any prayers you want to give! thanks for reading and stopping by cottage romance! until next time...keep creating!

  1. Beautiful job on the table.

    And as I like to say "OK God, I'm jumping in, stop me if you don't want me doing it". And then there is "Oh great, this isn't working, so how ya getting me out of this one God?" My point! You will never know until you give it a shot.

    May God bless your future endeavor.
