Oh, yes!

I had a fabulous week!

There is nothing more motivating than getting a phone call (two actually)
to ask about some products I used to make for Black Rooster Cottage.

Rustic Farmhouse Frames and Prints

Last weekend, The Vintage Marketplace in Southern California hosted 
their Summer show where I was a vendor when we lived there.
 It is such a magical place and I sorely miss being a part of it. 

 It's been a while since I've gotten any calls about Black Rooster Cottage, but I did this week!
I guess it pays to be lazy about changing my phone number. 

Do I change it or keep it? 

{I probably need to get a local number. All of AL is a 334 area code
so many people think they're getting calls from Timbuktu when I call local.}

But my excitement stems from the timing of these calls. 

After putting my stuff to the side to focus on the house and getting it 
ready for company and working with the Mr. on his job, 
 I kinda lost hope that it was ever going to happen. 
Then I fed that and convinced myself that the dining room
table wasn't good enough to work off of,
therefore, extending the start of The French Pressed Home.

Well, those phone calls put the boot to the bum and 
said, "GET TO IT, SISTER!!"

So, I did and I am!

I got my business license yesterday.


The French Pressed Home online Boutique will be open for business,
October 1, 2014.

I am very happy to be taking this step because I know my ultimate 
dream is just right down the road.

It's just the beginning and I will keep you posted, for sure!

Happy weekend, Friends! xo


  1. Everything is so beautiful, Im so happy for you!

  2. Inspiration finds us sometimes when we least expect it. You did not change your phone number so fate could call!

  3. Good luck with French Pressed Home. I love the name. Maybe I misunderstood something in your comment about all of Alabama is area code 334. I'm from AL and my extended family still leave there. Their area code is 256.
