Ecclesiastes 3:1 ~ To every thing there is a season . . .


How true this beautiful chapter and verse is in the Bible. I feel as though my life sometimes comes in chapters as well. One chapter ends and a new one begins. Our lives definitely have seasons.


I've been an antique store owner now for the last three years and had such a wonderful time. It was an honor to take over an established business, enjoy meeting all the great customers, develop new ones and experience the thrill of having my very own store.


About a year and a half ago Cindy came on as my business partner and was, and still is, an absolute blessing to me. She made things HAPPEN! The outside of the shop was painted and freshened. The flower beds were cleaned and straightened up. And best of all, Cindy shared working at the store with me. We alternated weeks and it really was such a great situation.


But now, the time has come for me to move on, to follow my BLISS and let Cindy take over my part of the store. But the best blessing is, I will still sell my wares in The Plum Tree but now I will have more time to create. To sew, paint, collage, search for cool old things and basically do what I truly enjoy doing. I will be taking an entire room at the store as my own and will be keeping it stocked with my finds.


So, sweet friends, wish me well as I move on to this new season and chapter. I'm thankful for the past but hopeful for the future!


Ecclesiastes 3:1 ~ To every thing there is a season . . . and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Best wishes with your new endeavors. Yes, another chapter closes and a new one opens. . . it's called "opportunity" to write and fill your pages as you wish.

Blessings!

You brave, strong woman, you! I love that you are able to "see" ahead of you and know in which direction you are to travel. But, your spirit will be missed at the shop. That is certain.
Oh! Wait!! Does this mean you will have time to pal around with us? ;)
Hmmmmmm?

Changes require courage, IMO. Good for you for having the courage to see that a chapter was ending, and to turn the page at the new one beginning.

Dawn,

What a surprise for me to read your announcement. It is with mixed emotions I send you this little note. I will certainly miss seeing you during my occasional stops to the shop, however, I will be thrilled to have an opportunity to see your newest creations! Congratulations on your new direction, Pat Robinson (aka primitivequilter)

Wow Dawn, there must be a bit of sadness that goes with this decision, but you must follow your heart. I'm sure your customers will no doubt miss your smiling face. May God be with you as you start your new adventure and as Cindy adventures out on her own. Theresa
