~ Fresh and Pretty ~

I could get lost in this image and be happy.  So pretty!

This photo was taken by Karyn Millet, photographer of Annette Tatum's book The Well Dressed Home.  I loved it so much I bought an extra copy for the shop.  I want a fairy tale home like this!

A beautiful chandelier, altar candle stick and aqua bottles.
Enough said.

Photo from Maisons Cote Sud via Linen and Lavendar

Two of my new favorites ~ shabby book pages and religious prints. 

Inspiration for my C. T. Slack seaman's trunk project. 

For more beautiful pictures and ideas, please visit the wonderful Fifi, and take a look at the amazingly pretty items in Fifi's giveaway that I am going to win!

Have a pretty weekend.

~ The Fruits of My Labor: Retail Therapy ~

It's been too hot for yard work, which leaves so much more time to treasure hunt.  New in the shop . . .

A ten piece set of German lusterware canisters and new jewel crown bottles.

Authentic shabby chic medicine cabinets lined in fabric covered cork to hang jewelry.

A painted sofa table with faux bamboo legs and such pretty lines.

A pair of tall vintage tin candlestick lamps.

A large tin cross and cloche with coral.

You are invited to beat the heat with cool things from
One of a Kind Shoppe.

Be cool.

~ Elements of a Zen Meditation Room ~

This room has all the elements for a Zen meditation room!  A gorgeous chandelier, a Louis Phillipe mirror, and fabulous drapes.

All I need is a chair to relax and contemplate the view. 

Sometimes less is more!

I'm sharing my thoughts on inspiration photos this week at One of a Kind Shoppe.  Please visit me there.

Happy weekend.

~ My Pink Suitcase is Packed ~

I'm packing my pretty pink suitcase and jetting over to Paris . . .

. . . to spend a month in le Turenne, a beautiful apartment in the Place des Vosges district of  Marais.  The weekly rent for this two bedroom flat is a reasonable $2,500.

Okay, I'm dreaming again.  But this gorgeous apartment is for rent.  Maybe one day . . .

Have a wonderful weekend.
Dream a little.
