There's just something about pink that makes me feel so girly! I'm not a huge fan but a touch of pink can go a long way.
I love to mix and match my silver. Each piece tells such a story.

These hot summer days are slowing me down but I just keep on junking! Summer is the best for "treasure hunting" at garage sales, barn sales and flea markets. If you don't melt you can find some great finds. I'm currently having a love affair with heavy metal, not the music but the industrial finds. Rusty metal, wire containers and anything else that catches my eye.
I also love architectural pieces. The old chippy paint, the layers of history, and reinventing these items thrills me.

These Hand Stamped Ribbons, Clothespins and Gift Tags by A Little Scrappy are so perfectly Shabby Chic. So many uses and so little time. I have visions of beautifully wrapped gifts adorned with a little french flair.

I'm not up for the challenge of too much repair and renovation when it comes to some of our flea market finds but recovering chairs has become an easy project that I've come to enjoy. It's fun to see the transformation from a cast-off to a renewed treasure. And the key is fabric! I found a bunch of perfectly shabby chic fabrics this week and I can't wait to use them!

My love of white dishes is taking over the store. I can't get enough. Simple yet so elegant. I just want to fill cabinets with stacks of platters and dishes. The more the merrier.
|I love this antique paper box.|
|Nothing shows off white dishes better than a shabby green cabinet.|
