Fruits of a Journey continued.....

I found this wild and fabulous blog this morning and fell in love with it and her....JuJu!!! SHE is so full of life and has the same loves as I in other artists....She loves Gibbous Fashion..and so do I....She loves Magnolia Pearl and so do I............How wonderful is that! 

My journey has been long and scary but I have found over the years that The Big Journey is what we are all to explore, examine, use all the senses for and in the end that is all there is...The Big Journey..that has taught everything we need.

We may enjoy, we may scream and cry, we may love or hate and over time it all becomes mute..for the Universe brings you what you ask for and I have asked for the perfect husband for me and the perfect son for me and the new business I have created.....all just for me. And.....that my friends is what I want to share with you....Prairie Child Design

Prairie Child Design is setting on a rise looking down on the surrounding area and in a sweet little log cabin backed up the woods. There is a rock wall behind it and the land behind the wall is higher. There in the edge of the woods is an old concrete picnic table with seating and it all covered in moss, fallen leaves and the cool moist smells of the woods....can't you see it?

I have wanted this building for years and years and years....and finely, finely the Universe calmly said... yes.  I have worked for two weeks in getting things set up for my little boutique at the edge of the woods, so now finely I am open and ready to show the world just some of the results of my continued journey.
I hope you will enjoy the continued journey with me...Prairie Child

Thanks Ms. Tori Lawrence of Victoria Lawrence Images.


                FINELY A DREAM COMES TRUE....MY VERY OWN SHOP.                       WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE......

Stop by my little boutique..PRAIRIE CHILD DESIGN 

It's right off I-65 back behind the Cracker Barrel @
1221 Kelli Dr. #A
Athens, AL

I have been in the process of setting up shop keeping. I found the most wonderful little log cabin and it is in a fantastic location.

I am just starting to get things somewhat organized, SO THERE WILL BE MORE TO COME!!!

 Everything in the front area will be my up-cycled work.. Remember to reuse...recycle and re-purpose.....ALWAYS!!!!

 I really want it to have that old 20's to 30's feel. With just a touch of, 'rolled hard and put up wet', look...if you can imagine

THE COUNTER..I plan to wrap all my sold paper.......            like they use to do back in the day.

 This is going to be a little seating area. I put news paper and old photos on this corner of the give it that touch of desperation in a brothel fashion.

I mentioned the front area....
There is a back room as well and I will have consignment there.

 My plan is to have all things 'woman'
ALL handmade items...such as purses/totes with a vintage look, that special jewelry, wonderful smelling soaps, soy candles that can be used as a lotion,etc...etc...

There is a third room......
I will have my sewing studio at the shop as well. On certain days I will be sewing only and on other days ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!!!!!
