Inspiration- Marigold.

Love this simple wreath. Have been obsessed with the color and the flower, next years pantone of the year?
The pink wall and the simplicity.

AP Shop, New Location- 14931 Lakeside Road, Lakeside Michigan- Opening Memorial Day weekend!

Working on the new shop, in one of the oldest buildings in Lakeside, and a building that I have admired for years- when I saw it was for sale I knew we had to pursue it, it had floors like a fun-house, everything was off. Thanks to Ben, from Neidlinger structural repair, for making his life's work saving buildings that most would tear down. Will post photos from the extensive project soon! Still hoping we can open Memorial Day weekend- fingers crossed.
