Perfect Saturday…

Here’s today’s loot….

Today started out early as usual.  One of my dearest friends had suggested this nice neighborhood community yard sale….   We meet…. we go…. we get disappointed…..  It’s amazing how someone can live in a million dollar house and have crap! LOL!  I’m serious…..  If you can’t afford to have nice things in the house of your dreams (or the house that will impress people)…. and you’re filling it with particle board furniture and ugly silk flower arrangements…. I mean really.  Really?

So…. we get off the beaten path and decide to take a spontaneous road trip.  No food, no map, no worries.  Full tank of gas…..beautiful day….. empty truck and 2 eager women with cash in their pockets!  Perfect ingredients for an early Mother’s Day present to ourselves.

Look at the loot we found when we broke away from the herd and went off on an adventure……..  I love days like this!  We met some amazing people, we laughed, we hunted and we conquered!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!

Primitive Addiction!

Great Vanity / Desk and Chair!

Sale!

Painted tool box with old bottles and flowers!

We’re Spring cleaning and getting ready for the new items that I just don’t have room for.  So….. that means SALE!  This week take 30% to 50% off select furniture pieces.

COULEUR! COLOR! COLOUR!

No matter how you spell it....

Spring is in the air…..  The whites and grays of Winter are stepping aside for FRESH and VIBRANT COLORS!  They are back!

As most of you, I’m inspired by the weather, my mood, trends, other artists, etc.  But most of us get our inspiration from popular magazines.  It’s all about what’s in NOW!  Fortunately, I’m in total agreement with most of the designers out there and the contemporary vibe of color and it’s big comeback!  I love color!  I’m known for color and as much as I love white on white on white………  I LOVE COLOR!

Clients come in weekly with their mags and wish lists and new ideas they’ve seen.  I love it!  I spend a small fortune myself on mags and couldn’t live without them.  I need visual stimulation at all times!  Seriously!

I have a pretty creative mind and I’ve been blessed with vision.  I design, I build, I create.  I see things in my dreams and I literally wake up and sketch.  But for most people they have a hard time with this.  They know what they like when they see it, but have a hard time organizing there thoughts and making a room complete from scratch.  That’s where designers, magazines, books and shopping comes in!

So……. Don’t be afraid of COLOR!!!!!!!!!!!  There are many ways to bring it into your existing rooms…..  NOW….. without a lifetime commitment! You can make a start with art, pillows and small occasional pieces like tables or a chair.  JUST DO IT! AND LET US HELP!

Stay connected and see the new items brought back from this weeks trip and other local artists…..  Photos should be posted on our facebook page soon!

Thanks and keep the feedback coming in!  We love hearing from you…… it’s what we do!  Cindy

After spending some time on the road and buying new pieces for the shoppe….. we’ve had to restock already!  Half of the treasures we brought back are gone so we’ve pulled in more new pieces and are on the hunt again month!  Stop by and see this beautiful farm table with drawers for storage.  It also comes with 6 chairs!
