Girl Interrupted

I took a little break, but now I'm Back!!

And, I have some very exciting news.
My Glam girl, Sherry and I have been asked to bring our flair to Vignettes front window.

We have been working on some fabulous NEW creations and I can't wait to share them.

  I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to focus on one of the things I love most about this business-the Art of display.

I have always been inspired by the magical window displays of New York


Starting in December, we will be dressing the window with our new look. Modern vintage glamour with a mix of French Industrial.  

come by for a visit

Pink October

Honoring breast cancer awareness month

What a great sale we had at the Pink House this weekend. So many fabulous things and beautiful vendors. Sheri 4 sure joined us, showing us all her beauty and strength. She is in the fight of her life as she battles breast cancer. Truly an inspiration! She brought some fabulous things to sell and I could'nt resist.

My favorite is this art deco hamper.

I love the way it dissapers in the grass.

I love displaying on the lawn, as nature is one of my biggest inspirations.

Just look at the details on this pair of French Beds. Gorgeous!!!

Being the Gypsy that I am, I am loading up again to sell my wares at Vignettes this Sat.,

12:00-5:00 p.m.
 Hope to see you there!

One of my favorite blogs Dreamy Whites, is having a giveaway.

Her blog is so inspiring. One of my favorite things about Maria, is she is always promoting other people. She is hosting this fabulous giveaway .

 The prize is a gorgeous pillow from Euro-Linens. Owners Dani and Eric are two of the sweetest people, and their linens are just
 beautiful. I have several of their Euro-shams, and all my kitchen towels are from them. Some of the simplest everyday items can add so much comfort to a home.

Be sure and check it out!
Good luck

As they say, when one door closes
another one opens

Which one do I choose?????

Things don't always work out as planned, but sometimes change is what is needed to revitilize the creative soul. It is time for me to pause, and reflect on my experiences. I have alot of great new opportunities that have come my way, and now there are big decisions that have to be made. I am so grateful to all my friends and fellow bloggers for  their encouragement.
Stay tuned.........There are many great things to come!!!!
