11 years... and counting...









red ticking is officially 11 years old this month...
it began out of my apartment years ago... 

i shuffled along (had no idea what i was doing or where it would go) and have had faith along the way trusting that this is where i was suppose to be.. then added the storefront (8 years)

a million changes since the build out of the space 
many trials, errors and a bit of success thrown in...
i am so pleased that i am able to do what i love and yet have the freedom to enjoy my life.

now being a home owner, designer (still stumbling along and not falling quite as often...)
learning more than i could have ever imagined... and still growing daily...

i want to thank you all for your amazing kindness
and i will continue to work diligently at making red ticking 
the best place to come when you need a lift...xx

Pam you are doing what so many of us only dream about. You have followed your path and listened to your heart & I wish you continued success for many, many years to come. I would love to do what you are doing right here in Aberdeen; in some old quaint small spot. Thanks for checking in on me. We've been here in Scotland for 2.5 wks. now & still no home phone or internet. Didn't think I would survive but low & behold I have!! Just feel very disconnected from the blogging world and my dear friends like you. Again, congrats and sending all my best dear friend from bonny Aberdeen xx

Introduced to your blog from Tina at The Enchanted Home. Wow, so pleased to have found it. I know I'm going to love it, just the name assures me of that! I am so interested in your career path and having your own wonderful decorating/homewares store, as this has long been a dream of mine and I'm still trying to work out how to make it happen with two little kids and without working 7 days a week! Any tips? Off to have a good look around your blog now. Congrats on the award. Mel@Georgicapond.blogspot.com
