Can you all even believe the lush, colorful beauty of my mountains?! I had to post a few more photos from our trip to the mountains last weekend for a couple reasons:

1. The color and beauty just get my juices flowin’

2. this weekend will be the polar opposite of complete relaxation in the mountains! hah!

For starters, I get the keys to my new studio today, and that will begin the moving madness {yipee!}…. my cousin is getting married on Saturday, family is in town for the wedding, and my guest bathroom is being demolished and gutted as we speak! Woot!

I am so very excited about the bathroom redo…it has been a long time coming, and I have lived with a huge hole in the hallway for about 6 months due to a leak that brought on this redo! The bathroom is going from seventies avocado green everything……to white subway tiles with gray grout, recycled wood, and penny tile goodness. I will be sure to photograph along the way and show it off when it is complete.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

    Your guest bathroom redo sounds absolutely amazing!!! Just what I would do if we owned our own home. Can’t wait to see the end result!

    I live near Greenville

      Hey Debbie,

      My new shop is still in the Pen Street Arts district. I absolutely love that area, and love being surrounded by so many other creative businesses. The new studio is literally down the sidewalk and around the corner from my current studio…..if we counted doors it would be 6 doors down :} The new address is 11 Lois Ave. Greenville, SC 29615 . I will be getting all moved in over the next 2-3 weeks so give me some time to get it pretty and then come see me!
