Lettered Olive Weekend

My mom is coming up today- yahoo! We plan on spending some time looking at the cottage next door. (It’s STILL for sale!) We’d love to buy it (at the right price) and fix it up, and then put it back on the market all spiffied up. We’re also going to work on Lettered Olive biz, and I’m SURE we’re going to laugh a lot. For some reason, we ALWAYS do that when we get together. Most of the time we don’t even remember why we’re laughing, or don’t even know why it’s so funny to us. It’s the best feeling in the world. :-)
Been working on the Dining Room…I’ll post some pics tonight or tomorrow.
Stay tuned!
