A New Favorite Shop

I want to take a moment and thank you all for shopping my vintage wares and for all the encouraging comments you sent my way regarding my new shop!  In all honestly, I was actually quite nervous to step into this venture and wondering how well received it would be, but you have all blown me away with your kindness!  Most has already been sold and I am furiously photographing new treasures to restock the shelves very soon.  In case you missed it, please *Click Here* to check out what is still available for purchase.

 In the meantime, I would like to share with you one of my new favorite shops!  Jennifer from Chalk Farm Home has amazing taste and sells the most delightful flea market finds and vintage French wares.  In fact, her style so mirrors mine that I can never leave there empty-handed!  She found these vintage French bistro wine carafes in Paris and I just adore them!  See the enameled number tags wrapped around each one?  They are numbered for each particular table of the bistro.  Ooh-la-la!         

They fit perfectly in my vintage french water-glass carrier.  I added a few green mums to bring some color to my coffee table.  Nothing like fresh flowers to brighten any room and add a touch of Spring indoors (because it sure doesn't look like Spring outdoors here!) 

The good news is Jennifer still has a couple of these vintage french carafes left in her Etsy shop, but you better act quick!  Once these one-of-a-kind vintage carafes are gone, they're gone!

I can guarantee that this won't be the last time you see one of Jennifer's finds in my decor!  Thank you again, Jennifer!

On another note, I have again the great privilege of being a contributor in Heather's fabulous e-zine, Homebound!  The Spring Edition comes out in less than a week, and I will let you know as soon as it is here!

Well, I better go for now as I have lots to catch up on and I hope to get my shop restocked very soon!  Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart!  I can't do any of this without you!
