  10. What an amazing boat! I bet that will be fun to take out to sea. I'm sure it is a lot of work to get restored, but will be well worth it in the end.

    1. Hi Kelly, we will probably never take it out to sea . . . but "Out To Lake" is our intentions, LOL. We live about 3 miles from a very nice lake for sailing, and will be checking into getting a slip to moor her in the next week or two :) Thanks so much for stopping by, we love hearing that she looks amazing :)

  11. The work you are doing on the Gypsy Rose is amazing! About the chairs in the last post--for rockers I would focus on the nursery set, moms who are looking for chairs to sit and nurse their newborns. Pinks, blues and greens.

    1. Hello Dee, I'm delighted that you like her. We fell in love with her classic lines, and although she needed a lot of work, she is a little beauty. We are getting very anxious to get her in the water. Steve ordered a new winch for her keel. It should be here this week. So, that is our next project installing a new cable and winch. Then all we will have left to do is set up the mast and see what kind of repairs we'll need to take care of to make her safe. Then . . . . . . it's time to have some fun :) Thanks so much for visiting, I so enjoy getting to know you better. have a lovely weekend.
