Remodeling and Breaking out the Fall Goods

In the craft world, harvest and Halloween goods have to be in the shop by August, I will just make the cutoff. I should be getting mountains of Halloween things from Clarinda next week to list. I don't think I'll do a fall show this year, just counting on ebay, although why I would is a mystery...I am in the midst of painting five thousand feet of woodwork in my living room and it feels like it will never be done. I have the music room all done with pictures and everything. The pie safe will only have the 2 crocks on top when I get the living room done--the pitcher and bust go on the bookcase eventually. Here is the mess I am in the middle of:

and here is the music room, that I need to keep looking at to give me hope...

More Stuff on the Way to Ebay
