Step Out Of The Ordinary


When I asked where life could possible lead me next I never expected THIS answer. Where does one go in her career having been in hospitality her first half of life and then became a machine quilter the second? Never expecting the twists and turns on this journey of mine, ( & you know what I mean doncha?) I had no clue that there would be a third career thrown in there somewhere. Now I ask ya... Could you even THINK up a better position for me yourself?:::::I KNOW!:::::


I have nearly peed my pants on a daily basis wanting so very much to tell you! I am the new Innkeeper for The Pickford House Bed & Breakfast, in Cambria, California!!!! Yep, its a red letter day indeed. If you have a minute or two, go over and check out our new home:) THEN, go and get your calendar and pencil yourselves in for quilting retreats, classes, or hey... just come have a holiday with me! I am not alone either! No! Walt is my assistant! LOL ( He told me he already has a job, but he will help):::::yeah buddy::::
Greta Gammil is happy too, with a new studio home for all the quilting going on! Rudy has a beautiful window picked out, and Ginger will adore being the center of attention as usual. Its very exciting indeed! We will be spending the next month getting moved and settling in. Theres so much work to do its making my head spin. ( in a good way). I am most thrilled with keeping with my European tradition of "Work where you live and live where you work!" The second floor is soley dedicated to our guest rooms. EIGHT of the most beautiful Victorian elegance with an Old Hollywood theme. The likes of Clark Gable, Rudy Valentino, Lilian Gish, and so many others don the halls. ::YOU GOTTA SEE IT!::: I will be developing a blog to enhance our website and have our guests review, complete with photos! Can you just see the quilts? The food? The fun??
I'll tell ya more later, right now I need a bath, its been a long weekend, fun and profitable;ending with a sweet new adventure:)
Night:)
