Aspen Trees

Today is the first day of April blog challenges. The rules are to follow the alphabet A-Z, so here goes day one with the letter A.

Just to re-cap my big projects in the works, Quacker Gift Shop is an ongoing project, we get new merchandise and rearrange the store all the time and I’ve been blogging about This Old Building Project and the Delish Bodyworks retail store and now I have a new project on the books, a chalet in the pines. We’re remodeling  a mountain chalet on a shoe string budget and needed good ideas on how to create a small space into a modern mountain retreat…first stop IKEA! Continue reading
