Romantic Lifestyle Magazine

When I mentioned to my family that I needed to set up Christmas in the house as well as the beach house in early Autumn they thought knew that something special must be up. Although this isn't the first time that it was done here, but this was pretty exciting...
I styled the bedroom in a shabby chic fashion with a white tree and lots of pastels, and I promised to take it all down so that we could enjoy autumn. 

Not my first time around the block so to speak, as there have been several photo shoots here over the years and it's always done far in advance...

In The Shop...Vintage and Antique Roses and Blogging

Happy Wednesday! 

You might not know that I've been blogging for over 8 years now, early on in the world of blogs! Originally I started the blog because I had been selling on the internet since the late 1990's, and my loyal clientele had been asking to know more about me and specifically wanted to see more photos of my home and more of the DIY's that I was then writing for magazines like Romantic Homes. I also found it a great way to let them know when new products were added to the shop (aka website) and it was nice to hear back with lots of comments!
Things have changed quite a bit in the blogosphere, or what I like to call Bloglandia and there are thousands of blogs these days and many making a living at blogging (or trying to) full time. 
Not sure that I fit into the modern day mold and I feel pretty much as I did back when this journey all began for me. I enjoy beauty and bringing beauty to others and don't count numbers. 
New items have been added to the shop! I hope that you consider shopping on~line this holiday season...whether with me or with others...
xoxo,

What I've Been Up To...An Estate Clean Out and The Pups

The week is closing and I thought that I would share a bit of what I've been up to for the last couple of days. Of course as always, our three pups keep me company when I work at home...as I did today. Little Darby (aka the "cupcake princess") was hanging out in...

Table Redeux Reveal...A Match Made In Heaven

 I'm really loving how the table and chairs look now and can't wait to see how they look in the small breakfast room at the beach house! I had other plans for the table...

A Thing For French Chairs...Redeux

I have "a thing" for French chairs. If you've toured my home on the blog before then you know that I am not even kidding! 

I have worked on some chairs today that were...
