~ Dining Room Dilemma ~

If you read my earlier posts, you know that I have a dining room wall dilemma.  I like the large open wall behind my farmhouse table because it frames the chandelier perfectly.  Not everyone agrees. 

I love, love, love this picture.  I think an old upper cupboard or wide plate rack may be the answer.  Look at how pretty this is with the white chairs and chandelier.

Ahh, so pretty.  I could live with this!

And this.  I like the dishes in the otherwise simple room.

Think about how much fun I could have shopping for all those perfect white dishes.

Okay, it's a good option.  I'm going shopping now.  There is a huge yard sale in Buckhead to benefit Haiti.  I'll let you know what I find.

Happy Weekend!

~ Swedish Botanicals: Inspiration + Retail Therapy ~

I spent the last two days searching for this picture and finally found it in a "store concept" file that I created about eight years ago when I was in a business practices class.  I was amazed that almost every idea in the file has been incorporated into the shoppe ~ including a large selection of antique Swedish herbarium.

They look great in so many settings.

I love the frames that A. Tyner Antiques uses on their botanicals. They sell them for about $250 each.  
Here are a few that we have in the shoppe.  They are unframed (under glass) and sell for $50 each.

I thought about creating a collage in this large frame for my dining room wall. More on that wall dilemma later...

Did I mention that I love this wall?

Happy shopping.

~ Sneak Peek ~

Here's a sneak peek at some of the great finds that are heading to the shoppe in March.  I have Spring fever and couldn't wait to share a few glimpses.

~ Bonne Nuit ~

I'm looking forward to a little r&r this weekend.  I can only imagine how amazing it would be to eat popcorn and watch a good movie in one of these georgous rooms!
