Saying GoodBye... MoViNg Forward to *New Adventures*...

We FINALLY MoVed!*!*!

LaSt Week we said our bittersweet goodbyes  to an AmaZiNg Home we put our heart & soul into designing/building, -some 15 years ago...
With life's aging process clicking at our heels - it was now time to start simplifying for us,
 before we really had to...

We're chilling in a Rental Townhouse, still in Cedarburg, Wisconsin,
until we figure out which road to take for our next adventure!!!

I sure will miss the FaB SaLes we had at the Lakefield House!!!  
That GaRaGe Space was something else when it got transformed magically with Vintage Finds!*!*!
THanK Y*O*U ChiPPy-SHaBBy Customers for sharing and making that experience happen!!!
I miss seeing you all Sooooo Much!!!
