Guest Ready!

The past week has been spent on rather mundane, boring "stuff"....entering business receipts onto the January spread sheet, catching up on cleaning out closets, laundry, and the not-at-all boring videos for online workshops.

All that work is finished and we're now "Guest Ready!!"

And hoping everyone will be comfortable....

My dear sweet friend, Rachelle, arrives tomorrow for a week of giggles, shopping, late night gabfests, and GEM SHOW!

She will head back to PA all too soon next Wednesday.  

The doors will open again a few hours later when Carolyn and Gloria arrive from Birmingham, AL!  

I think I will have just enough time to change out sheets and towels! lol

Carolyn and I "met" in an online art retreat this past summer.  We've stayed closed friends with one another and our group of fellow jewelry art sisters.  We're so excited to have this opportunity and will be taking classes together at Art Retreat in the Desert.
Here's where my friends will "hang their hats" ~ our humble little guest house...

Not enough time to repaint the pink cabinets....remains of when our girls lived in the guest house....there's Annie Sloan Chalk 
Paint in Paris Grey waiting in the wings!!

Doorway on the left leads to my's normally locked but I opened it to increase light for the photo.
What do you think?  Think everyone will be comfy?  From past reviews, I'd say "yes," and we couldn't be happier to have visitors!

It will be a fun, but very busy month ahead.  I will try my best to keep the kitchen door open every Monday for your blog visit.  

If I should go MIA, know that I'm just havin' fun, which translates to "more blog news to follow!"

I'm off to put finishing touches on things.  Sending you big hugs and good wishes for a fabulous week.  Thanks so much for taking the time from your busy day to stop by for a visit!
