So much has happened, and yet I find myself here again, in the exact spot I was three years ago. I just reread my introduction post Genesis, and find the words could be written today!
I am again here to build Riveted online, in the hopes of germinating a brick and mortar store. The vision hasn’t changed, perhaps just gotten clearer and sharper in the intervening years. I still see an industrial modern look. “Desert, Modern, Vintage, Industrial”
In the years since my initial post, Pinterest
happened. Love it! Makes it so easy to keep a record (with backlinks) of this we adore. Allowed me to throw out most of my decades old magazine image files. If we do a project together, we can create a board the whole team can add to.
The last two years have been spent managing a non-profit thrift store, so I have lots of hands on retail and management experience. I am proud of my work there, and discovered I really am a leader and can direct a team and inspire them to work hard, while enjoying the process. But Riveted was pulling at me like an insistent toddler. With the board of directors blessings and support, I set off to pursue my own vision. I will continue to present projects made out of thrift store finds, on the store’s behalf, on Tucson’s local morning talk show, The Morning Blend
. You will see some of those projects here.
Two years of intense full time work left many home projects undone. I hope to document their completion here as well. (am I the only one without a headboard??) Want interior design guidance project management of your own? Let’s work together! Perhaps you will let me share your progress here too.
I know there are some broken links in the old posts. If I can re-find the products mentioned, and will re-link them. or we will just find new things to love!Let’s get going!!
