Here's what happens when you dare to dream........................
You start to feel alive again
You develop a skip in your walk
You smile. Frequently.
You're heart beats a little quicker with excitement
Your worries seem to take a back seat
And your wrinkles start to miraculously fade away
( ok that last part is completely ridiculous - but all the others? 100% true. )
Suzan and Dorothy
Deuxieme Debut & Simply Vintageous by Suzan are joining forces
They have a dream...................
"Painting furniture 101" ( for dummies - by dummies )
Even as we stood overwhelmingly looking at this - we knew
As we spent yesterday cleaning out the space - and as we realized how much more there is left to do - we knew, as the sun set softly on the trees outside, we knew without a doubt -
As we swept and carried out garbage - and rearranged things - and looked at each other covered in sawdust and grime, with our hair up in dollar store clips and our hands full of paint - we knew with all certainty -
As we decided on what should stay and what should go - as we laughed - and pulled our hair -
and looked at each other thinking " what the hell are we doing " we knew,
And as we collapsed at the end of the day eating smoked meat sandwiches on paper towels at our
PAINTING STATION - we most definitely knew
That as Emily Dickenson so eloquently put it
Hope really is that thing with feathers...................................................and we are one step closer to opening our painting class.
Sorry John Lennon - although you most definitely need love
It isn't all you need at all - you need hope - beautiful-wonderful-lovely-bring-you-back-to-life-again HOPE
( and the most special of thanks to David and John who are standing by our sides through the entire mess
and getting as filthy as us in the process - we really are blessed )
Have a great day everyone - fill it with hope if you can ( I highly recommend it )
