Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Fun With Gram and Sue

My new friends Gram and Sue decided we needed a little retail therapy in between snow storms, so today we went to lunch and then headed over to a cute shop in Roy called Re Creations. (for you local girls it's on Main St.) The owner was there and was as nice as could be. I wish I'd gotten her name. She wouldn't let me take her picture because she had no make up on and was getting her eyebrows and hair done today. But we took a few pictures of her fabulous creations. Yes, those are two chairs hanging from the ceiling with faux greenery and a clock. She had lots of linens...
She takes old oak furniture and paints and antiques them, then puts them in her shop and they are flying out the door. That's Gram and me and Sue in the mirror.

She had a ton of these benches. They are made from a bed's headboard and footboard. The footboard is cut in half and makes the arms of the benchs. She then makes a cushion and attaches it to the bench.

This was a combination of an old door, a footboard, and various hooks and hardware. How do I turn this picture?? Where's my 5 year old neighbor when I need him?

The prices were reasonable and in the back she has a few booths she rents out. Fun, fun place. We'll be going back soon.

Again? Without Me? LOL. Love the pictures! As I was looking at each one, I said "I have to have that..." then I scrolled down and oh my, "I have to have one of those as well..." scroll down again, "wait, I need this too!" I love the black corner bench. I think it was screaming my name! How do you know about these places? Oh dear, I do live out in the sticks....♥ Lewaina
Oh, I forgot to answer your question... there is a DI, in Vernal, 50 miles away.....there is one in Price also, I think 65? or 70? miles away.
