~ Rachel's Prairie B & B ~

I can't imagine a more perfect place to relax and unwind!  Heavenly.

I'm getting ready to move my booth [again] this weekend.  It's funny how many moves I've made in the past two years in the biz . . . since I'm really a homebody who loves to stay put.  I'm pretty sure I'll deserve a little trip to Rachel's B&B when I'm done.

Have a great week.

~ Happy Ending ~

Otis is home after six weeks.  I knew it would happen.

I love a happy ending!

~ Random Updates ~

I'm on the move ~ again!  There's a booth opening up at the front of DuPre's and I'm moving in at the end of the month.

I love the opportunity to create a new space.  I'm pouring over my inspiration photos and starting to dream.

Remember this photo from last year?  I saw this gorgeous headboard the first time I went to the auction last September.  Friday night, it was finally put in the auction ~ and now it's mine!

And finally, a couple weeks ago I barbecued fish after dark, trying to lure my mother's neighbor's lost cat out of hiding.  We didn't see little Otis that night, but I've had the strongest feeling that he is still close-by.  Finally, after about six weeks, Otis was spotted in his backyard Saturday night.  He isn't home yet, but I know it's only a matter of time. 

I hope you have a wonderful week and something special to smile about.

~ Shoppe Update ~

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend with friends and family.  I enjoyed myself today playing in my booth at DuPre's Antique Market. Here's a bit of what's in the shoppe.

I still will always love shabby chic. 

But, I'm in my chinoserie phase now, too.

I love how old books and organic materials add warmth and character.

Another obsession ~ oil paintings.  The beautiful young lady portrait has a wonderful new home in a B&B in the suite used as the bride's dressing room for wedding functions.  Perfect.

Odds and ends are irresistible on my shopping sprees for the shoppe.

Swedish gray furniture and botanicals are still favorites.

This Swedish gray desk is a wonderful piece.  There is a large farmhouse table and gorgeous secretary that match.

My first love ~ French antiques ~ will always make my heart skip a beat.  I love, love, love this antique French mirror. 

And these antique French prints, ooo la la!!

Cute linen painter's boxes . . .

Unique things . . .

And reproductions are fun finds that round-out the shoppe. 

And, as always, there's lots and lots of silver.

Isn't this the cutest little dog?  He and his buddy mysteriously walked away from the store.  To the person who has them, I wish painful toe nail fungus a more honest and generous heart and a change in ways.

Happy weekend, everyone!
