Last week I teased you all, and told you I had a big announcement coming today! It was a lot of fun reading the comments, and hearing from you via email. A couple people thought I was pregnant… one of my best friends even called me and asked! NOPE. DEFINITELY NOT PREGNANT. While I admire those of you who have 8 kids, are able to craft, decorate your home, and still look pretty, I don’t think I could do it. I had a little baby itch, but it went away and I am thankful for that… as wonderful as babies are, my kids will BOTH be in school full day starting next fall and I will have 8 hours a day, 5 days a week to myself. Why on earth would I want to give up that??? So no- no babies here.
Some of you guessed an etsy shop, which is closer, but nope, not it. Maybe one day I will get it together enough to have one! For now…. I will be joining forces with my good friend Sarah, aka The Thriftress in a new venture! Sarah and I met through blogging and were able to meet in person last year for the first time. Now that I have moved, we live a little closer to one another and have been able to get together a few times. We enjoy each others company so much (and our girls love each other- Sarah’s daughter was one of the owlets I shared yesterday!) and have similar styles that we decided it would be fun for us to venture into business together! We both are stay at home moms, so we wanted something that would be fun, a creative outlet, and the appropriate pace for us. I am so lucky to have someone so fabulous to share with in as we travel through this new journey!
“Persephone” is our new business name for our own little retail space at Wild Rose and Co in Walkersville, MD. Wild Rose & Co was founeded by my pal, Lynette, and is the cutest little boutique featuring vintage finds, furniture, and even cute boutique style clothing, candles, soaps, and more! Here is a glimpse of the shop in case you have never been there…
Sarah and Cassie are thrilled to become part of the creative team of vendors at Wild Rose. We hope to bring even more fabulous upcycled vintage finds, fresh home decor, and even more vintage hip-ness!
We hope to see you there for our Grand Opening on Saturday, February 4 from 10 am until 5 pm! Wild Rose is located at 21 West Pennsylvania Ave, Walkersville, MD 21793.
Sarah and Cassie plan to start up a Persephone Facebook page as well, so we will let you know as soon as that is up and running! Thank you so much for your friendship and support- we would not be doing this without you!
