Preview of TheSmithHotel's Second Open House and Boutique...

I've been slacking on blogging...  Kids are back at school and I've been busy cleaning out the office to set up shop for our open house on Sept 11th.

I'm trying to clean out the garage so Mr. Smith can work on another paint project-a kitchen cabinet that I will be using for displaying all my kitchen items that I've been gathering.

Since the kids are back in school, I've been working at Oregon St. Antiques Mall. 
I made the mistake of looking at the calendar and started to panic.....3 weeks till Open House....I've still have loads to do and make! 
So I haven't disappeared......Well maybe I have with my house looking like this...
Moved furniture around the other night and still need to put the rug back....for now we are just stepping over it....
It's so bad the front door is blocked......What's a dining room chair doing in the living room?  Sigh...I still have loads of work to do but now I must get ready to go to work!  It will still be waiting for me when I get home!
 I promise it won't look like this in 3 weeks!  Really!  It's driving me crazy.....I really need a barn!


  1. I wish that you had a barn!!! I would bring a bus load of girls to shop. Wow you not only have such style talent for display but your items are amazing. Thank you for such an inspiring post to start my day.

    Warm Regards

  2. What I wouldn't give to be there, wow!

    Have a wonderful week!

  3. Oh my... look at all of those fabulous pieces!! LOVE those vintage suitcases! Wish I could come shop!
    Have a great day!

  4. You sound a bit busy! :) Remember to take a deep breath and enjoy the process! :)

  5. If it makes you feel any better, I have 5 barns and they're all full so my house still looks like that. Ha!

    But I'm having a barn sale at the beginning of Oct.

  6. WHY, WHY, WHY, do you have to live all the way over in California? I would come to your Open House or Closed House and sneak in! What fun, fabulous stuff!
    I slacked on my blog and didn't write something for a WHOLE week! I felt naughty!
    Well, I pray you sell much stuff and make many new friend and have lots of fun, even though right now you are stressed out!
    Hugs, from all the way on the other side of the USA: South Carolina!

  7. Everything looks beautiful! A feast for the eyes. I actually have the exact same hat case. The black one with maroon trim. I found it in my grandparent's attic and have not been able to let it go. :)
