People have been telling me for years that I have enough fabric to open a fabric store. Boom….. here ya go!
Welcome to: She’s So Pretty at 48 Main Street, Lonaconing.
Enjoy all the pretty pictures…
My terrible commute. This picture is taken from my front porch, my shop is the brick and green building at the light.
And please if you are in the area, stop by! Wed-Sat 10.00am-6.00pm. Sunday-Tuesday, by appointment.

With all the painting done, it was time to tackle the lovely floors. The floor tiles are “vintage” green asbestos squares. Neither one of us really wanted to fool with pulling and probably breaking them up. Cleaning and sealing is definitely the best course of action!
Eric tried all sorts of cleaning solutions. Amonia scrubs, bleach rinses (not at the same time…heh), and just a bunch of elbow grease. Dirt was coming up, but the tiles were still filthy. One of my neighboring shops loaned me stripper call Hurricane. I have no idea whats in it, but when she told me the schools were no longer allowed to use it because of the chemicals, I knew I had found the answer!
Hurricane and water scrubbed onto the floor…….magic! The tiles totally stripped with no problem!
Left side stripped, right side still ookie…
In two days Eric was able to strip the floor, and put two coats of sealer.
Now…. to move!
