Wishing You Happy Holidays....and a Joyous New Year

Just a quick Happy Holiday Wishes to all my fellow Bloggers and Friends before I start my two days of cooking, YUM! I always complain and sorta dread this time of year but when it comes down to it there's nothing like spending time with the ones you love.
And for my blogging friends I am offering you 20% off everything on my Website for 2 days only so you can spend your Chrismas cash till Dec. 26th Midnight. Discount will be refunded after purchase. So if you've had your eye on something....Go for it.

Does this look like I still spoil my grown children to you?

My Home Office Redo...Part 2?

Welcome to my Office
Amazing how you can decorate a room just by pulling from other rooms. This slipcovered chair was one of the four I had in my living room. The view as you enter my room.

I love Old Leather Bibles and Photo Albums

Paper Whites to fill the room with the scent of paradise

I could never part with my magazine stand.

My favorite Chromolithograph of Sweet Birds

Love that little utility Stool,
Hope you enjoyed the tour, better get the Christmas decorations up now.

My Home Office Redo.....Part 1 that is supposed to be part 2...don't ask

I wanted to share some pictures of my office I've just redone. This room was featured in Romantic County Magazine in 2007 dream Rooms when it was full of floral fabrics and my Rose Oil Paintings. I repainted the walls white and wanted to keep with a softer palette. It is much more serene and a nice place to work without all the distraction of color.

I did two posts because I had trouble with the pictures. I guess if I posted more often I wouldn't have this problem, haha.

Found this great Old Farm Table from one of my favorite stores BUNGALOW that worked perfect as my deskIts fun adding different elements I'll call Crusty, Rusty Utility & Garden

to Romantic White Linen Slipcovers and ruffled Linen Lampshades

I couldn't part with this Old Medical Cabinet with my Favorite Statue

I managed to throw in a piece of Wonderful Old Ironstone and how I love Old Wire Baskets and Birdcages, which you can find on my website

This is a great Old Iron Planter My friend Sandy gave me

Perfect for a Vase of White Roses

Found this Old Bread Box, slapped on an old Glass Knob and its perfect to hide the ugly stuff.

I've Been Such a Slacker....

Its been 3 months since I've posted a blog and it took me 3 times to get signed in because I forgot my password...that should tell you something. Its been a great and busy Summer between leaving the Antique store and focusing on my home business I'm happy to say its proven to be successful. The feature of my home in Romantic Country Magazine was a nice help I actually feel like I'm working harder though....I'm not complaining by any means.
I've had some fun re-doing my eating area with a Vintage Oak French Dining Room Set I picked up. I had some white linen ruffled slips made for the seats to bring in the white and make it look a little more casual. Its a huge table over 7 ft. long and has a 2.5 ft. leaf that I can put in. The backs of the end chairs are a tan naugahide but it works for now. I traded out my Primative Farm Table and 6 white chairs. The chairs are sold but my 7 ft. Farm table is still available for sale. You can see it in the magazine or my past posts.

I also picked up a wonderful Old Black Iron Bed from a friend so I revamped my guest room a bit. I love how the bed is so high now and looks so comfy...makes me wanna come visit lol.

What do you think???

Well this last month I made a huge decision to leave the Antique store where I've been selling for 15 years and re-invent myself sort of. So I took my little barn where I stored all my merchandise (which was disgusting inside I might add) and had it refurbished, now its like I have my own little store to putter in and decorate (which I knew I would miss moving from the store) because you know its all about putting it together and walking away knowing that your space looks awesome, that gives you that creative fix we love. Now when I have my sales from the house its more inviting and intimate. I had a sale here yesterday and it was so successful and's a few pics of how it looked in the process of putting it together. Hope everyones having a wonderful 4th of July. Oh and if you live in the L.A. area and you want to be put on my mailing list for the next sale date just post me a message. Also feel free to ask about whats still available.
