Time to create

January is a time to clean and create.
I had to first repaint the chalk board wall.  The old writings don't come off as easy as they claim... whoever they are, they are wrong, so a new coat of paint went up and then I was ready to go.  All I needed was to grab some new product that just arrived and a piece of chalk and Wa- La. 
Fun City.

Clocks from England, a re-creation of the coffee bar that I have at my house, wall organizers AND a whole lot of fun went into this vignette.

We have a whole lot going on here besides Christmas clearance...
I can only stand the after Christmas stuff for so long, so between you and me, it will all be gone in 2 weeks.  When I get back from Atlanta, it is the first thing to go.

What time is it?
 It is time for me to start getting ready to go back to Atlanta.
I am so excited, and I am finally starting to feel better.
 Thank God.
I leave next week and will be power shopping from sun up to sun down.  Last year I took a bunch of photos and then lost my camera... not going to happen this year.  I will hopefully have lots to show you when I return.  From what I have seen so far from the catalogs that are streaming in.... loads of birds, bugs, butterflies and garden.  So I should be in heaven. Right about now I am in the need for green grass, green plants, anything green and gardeny. I will hopefully have some posts up next week to keep you busy while I'm gone. ~ L

Oh Lori, I love your chalk board wall with clocks and numbers! You know, your shop should be in a magazine! Please don't lose you camera this year! Love all the show rooms in Atlanta. Be sure and go see my friend Gina of Peacock Park, she has some really cool stuff! Have fun and be safe!

Gorgeous,just gorgeous Lori. Your shop looks so european. I had to go back through the post to make sure it wasn't a catalog. I can't wait to see what you find and bring back to show us. Have a great and safe trip.
PS. I am ready for some green in my world too, and it is only January, ugh :)

I love how your chalkboard wall turned out. The combo of black, metal and clocks(my fav) is really stunning. Very inspirational!

Have a great weekend and fun shopping.

Sooo many beautiful things, Lori! I love your clock wall (those clocks are awesome), and those 1,
2, 3 galvanized wall bins are great... love those!
I'm just checking... did you get my comment where I told I do want the January issue of JDL? You are still selling those, right? Anyway, I just wanted to let you know again to please, send me one. :)
I'm glad your feeling better. Have fun in Atalanta!

Love catching up with your vignettes from over here in the UK. Have just received a copy of the JDL magazine from a supplier I found after seeing it on your blog. Can't wait to read it! Wish I lived closer! Thanks x

Just loving your blog and your store.
The chalkboard paint does not come off like they say. too bad.=/
I found that out after I painted some in cute frames and sold them.

Layer it on. Change it up.

Time for a refresh. Have you ever looked at an area in your house and thought I am done looking at that mess.   Or maybe it's just time...
