No Matter Where You Go, There You Are

That saying (from a Mary Engelbreit illustration) popped into my head when I started thinking about all the changes going on in my life. Even though I recently moved my 11 year old daughter and I to a new town with a very different living and work situation, I'm still the same old me and I still love the same things. The means to express myself creatively has changed, but the things that make my heart happy have not.

I was the owner of a little part-time vintage and gift shop, but had to close it when I moved. It was a great situation for awhile but life takes all kinds of twists and turns and sometimes we have to move on. I truly miss decorating the shop, setting up little vignettes, and especially visiting and sharing ideas with my customers.  I'm sure it won't be long before I rent a space at a local shop or maybe set up at some of the wonderful seasonal shows in this area. I am also in the process of setting up my ETSY shop, BeckyJsNest. For now, I'm mostly just enjoying decorating my own living space!
