House Update and a HUGE sale!

Hi everyone!  The past few weeks have been unusually busy.  We are moved into our new house but nowhere near being settled in yet, though I'm having fun trying to do just that.

  The first things we did were try to move the transferware over  and get the garage set up to house it all.  This picture shows the beginnings of getting our shelving units set up. There will be 3-4 double rows, 4 shelves deep.  Beyond the door, in the back right corner, in the photo below is the fourth garage which is set up perfectly for our packing and receiving station. It has built in cabinetry and storage that runs the length of the garage.  The space is heated which will be nice during the Winters.   

The 4th garage, shown below, has a workbench area built in with four or five French doors that open to a covered patio and the back yard.

Yep, the glass is dirty and needs some cleaning.  Two of my nephews and my Mother in law came over a couple of weeks ago and washed a lot of the windows for us.  It was a huge help, so thank you Judy, Nate and Jimmy Austin!  There are a LOT of windows in this house.  

Now the garage is beginning to look like 'Transerware-ville' again.  I am anxious to give you all a tour of it and the rooms as they progress and once we get it a little better organized.

For now though, I wanted to let all of my blog readers know about my largest sale ever.  It took the internet provider over 3 weeks to hook up our internet service so I have been trying to use my phone to check emails and such, but it's been a little difficult and this is the first chance I've been able to post anything to my blog since moving. 

With all of the expenses of moving, Shawn and I decided to have our biggest sale ever and are offering 50% of all the jewelry and 25% off of everything else, including transferware.   You can use the code JEWELRY to take 50% off of that category and the code TRANSFERWARE to take 25% off everything else.   Shawn sent out a notice to my email subscribers day before yesterday and we had a record day in sales.  Thank you so, so much.  I cannot say how very, very grateful I am to my customers.  

I hope you all have a blessed and Happy Easter~

Now, hop along with this bunny…

 over to…

….because the sale ends Sunday at midnight CST.

Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right
