Happy New Year!

I can't believe tomorrow night we will welcome in 2012!   
As I think back on 2011 for Old Barn Rescue Company, 
my heart is full of thankfulness and joy. 
It has been an amazing year of growth for our business with so many wonderful memories. 
Old Barn Rescue Company's top 10 highlights for 2011:
10) Our TV airing with Great Day St. Louis
9)  More stores selling our wares.
8)  Reaching 2000 sales on Etsy for our wall graphics.
7)  Reaching 3000 sales on Etsy for our wall graphics.
 6)  Participating in Art on the Green in beautiful Coeur d'Alene, ID in early August.
5)  Getting our new website up and running.
4)  Hiring Shawna to help us with our growing business!!  (More to come on Shawna soon)
3)  Continuing to create new and unique items inspired by what we find.
2)  Pottery Barn purchasing some of our windows to decorate their local store.
1)  Adonna and I sharing 3 days on the road from St. Louis to Spokane to transport our creations for the Art on the Green show.  
What a time to laugh, share our hearts, revel over breathtaking scenery and dream for our business!
What started out as a fun "hobby" in an attempt to save some old barn wood has turned into quite the adventure for us and for this we are so grateful!  
So as we look to this new year, 
in keeping with our love for words, 
here are some wonderful ones to live by:
Thank you for all your support and appreciation of our creations! 
May 2012 hold more surprises and joys!
