Grand Opening 1995

I'm working on a secret project that involves family pictures
and I ran across these from the first day we opened our store.

front row - my brother, Mike, granddaughters,
Lindsay and Hannah

Oh how nice to see this, Diane. I knew about your store--but had never seen any pictures... I'm sure it was alot of work, but also much fun. Thanks for sharing.

DIane, that is really neat to see, I am sure it must have been so much fun to have a business like that...the interesting things that you must have seen. All the treasures you found too, I find the stories behind the old and vintage items are sometimes more interesting then the actual antique....well sometimes!

What an exciting time for you. It's so nice to learn this about you and see your family. Do you still have the store? I think you must have had a grand life. It looks perfect in every way.

It was interesting to see the photos of the shop - I love the sign. Is there a photo of the entire sign.
You've taken on quite a task in going through all the family photos. I should follow your lead!

Oh, I do love old family pictures. Love them. I can't wait to hear more about your project. And see pictures of the finished version when you are ready.

Hi Diane, that woodpecker photo is great. I'm surprised he didn't fly away. He sure was a big fella. How long did you have the store? I need to work on lots of projects around here. :/ Cleaning should be top of my list but I keep avoiding it. Happy day to you. Best wishes, Tammy
