Brick and Motar

Well, it’s official!!  I signed the lease today to have my own Brick and Motar store front…I’m super excited and can’t wait to get it all fixed up and ready to open ~ sometime in early July! This is going to be a fun and exciting time for us as we step into the “real world”.  Thankfully, I am blessed enough to have the most supportive husband ever.  He’s always been right there with me, cheering me on, helping me in every way possible, and calming me down when the stress gets out of control.  I couldn’t do this without him…and I wouldn’t want to.  We are going to be very busy in the next couple of weeks with the clean up, painting, building of shelves, and moving all of our stuff in and getting it all set up for our opening….So much to do, so little time!

Opening soon….The Old Cypress House ~ at it’s new location, in Gonzales, LA.

Stay tuned for more progress as we make our way to the opening!


About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
