I Needed The Rest

I've been curling up on the couch, and, sleeping a lot these past few days.  I REALLY needed the rest.

As soon as I completed the last day of my show, it all hit me.  I was officially exhausted.

So, lots of doing nothing for a few days was in order.

However, I thought I would stop doing nothing, and, share a few pics.

I'm grateful for customers, old, and, new, who came out to shop.

My friend Rhonda, and, I did well.  However, we both found ourselves drained.

My days on the couch helped tremendously.

I will be focusing on appointments, custom pieces, and, my Etsy for the rest of the year.  No more shows till 2015.

I can also get back to a somewhat normal blogging routine.

See ya soon. 


  1. Rosemary, Thank you for sharing such lovley pictures for our eyes to feast upon. I'm so glad your shows were successful and you took the rest you NEEDED! Been missing your blog, but I'd rather have you rested and well and an occasional post than none! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I am happy that you are listening to your body and resting. You deserve a lot of rest. I love all your items. Everything you do is beautiful. Blessings to my dear Rosemary. Love you so much. xoxo

  3. The pictures look exceptionally pretty with the sun streaming through the windows! Love those clipboard pieces a lot! Great weather to stay inside, right?! I had knee replacement so I'm just getting back to blogging but am sure loving being INSIDE and off of work! Enjoy your rest!

  4. Love your pictures, you create such beautiful treasures. Having shows is such hard work, you definitely deserve to rest. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Blessed Holiday Season.

  5. Beautiful photos Rosemary. Glad you and your friend did well at the shows.
    If your body is saying rest... heed it. We tend to push ourselves so hard.
    Rest my friend, and enjoy the holidays!
    Hugs, Gee

  6. I can only imagine how exhausting those shows must be to set up and take down over and over again. Not to mention the preparing for them. Glad you've gotten some rest and can take a break until after the holidays. Now go and enjoy the holidays with your family!

  7. Rosemary,
    glad to hear you did well at the show, you deserve a good rest! Your photos are lovely, you have the most wonderful things!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Long time, no "see" Rosemary! I'm glad to hear you're taking some time to recoup from all your busyness. I've been such a bad blog visitor lately but I have missed all my favorites, like you so hopefully I'll get myself caught up:) Hope it's not too cold where you are!

  9. You always have the most beautiful merchandise, its no wonder it sells so well. I'm happy you also remember to take care of you! Have a happy Thanksgiving Rosemary.

  10. Rosemary --- I just don't know how do it all. The beautiful vintage pieces you discover, the way you transform them, the way you create unique finds into amazing treasures....your artistry is utterly incredible. I pray that after your successful season, you can kick back, enjoy life a bit more, and take some time to just breeeeeathe! lol Happy Thanksgiving to you, sweetie!
