I was at the Merchandise Mart a couple weeks ago to check out the Spring lines.  So much to see!  But only one showroom made me gasp ~ it was soooo pretty.  Pom Pom ~ you made my heart skip a beat.

Last week, I received such a nice surprise when the lovely Lavinia from Lavinia's Paper Emporium shared her Liebster Blog award with me.  This award is given to bloggers with under 200 followers.  I've said this before, but I am always surprised to see that I have any followers!!

So to follow the rules and share the love, I am pleased to pass this award along to:

(1) Pom Pom Living.  I'm not sure how many followers Pom Pom has to their relatively new blog, but since their store left me breathless, I tag them.

(2) The Artful Diva.   Pat Kumicich is such a creative artist.  I love her unique style.

(3) My Paris Flea Market Diary.  I would die to find such great treasures!

(4) The Artful Lifestyle ~ featuring my favorite art gallery in Atlanta, and torturing me with the dream of going on one of their tours to France . . . Awww.

(5)Oops!  My battery is dying on my laptop and I'm running out of time so, I'm going to cheat and leave you guessing on who my fifth pick would be.

Please visit Lavinia and these other lovely blogs.
Have a wonderful week.

~ Elly May Clampett Would Be Jealous ~

Happy Monday!  I had a great Friday night at the auction.  Elly May Clampett would have been jealous of my car full of treasures ~ with two French wire atageres tied on top.

I took a few new pieces to the shoppe at DuPre's Antique Market today.  I think Rachel would approve of this Florentine chest.

This French butler's serving table is really different.

Some other great finds . . .

It was fun to redecorate after the holidays.

This chinoiserie sideboard is very happy with all the pink we added to the shoppe today.

Have a wonderful week!


P.S.  I was shocked when I won this pair of old mechanical bears.  They were so cute, I had to bid.

~ Life's Good ~

I hope your new year is off to a great start.  I wanted to share some good news on this rainy Sunday.

First, an update on the sweet little puppy I rescued last fall.  I found him eating trash in the street on my way downtown, with a broken dirty shoe lace hanging from his collar.  He is happy in his new home, completed his heart worm treatments and loves his little buddies and lots of toys. 

Ahh, I love a happy ending.

Second, I received a nice surprise last week when Jennalise honored me with the Blog on Fire award.  Please check out her lovely blog [here].  She is a lover of all things pink and pretty and has a wonderful blog.  Thanks, Jennalise! 

So, now I'm supposed to tell you five things about myself.  Hum . . .  Okay. . . (1)  I always wanted a kitten when I was growing up.  Instead for my tenth birthday, I was given a puppy ~ a pug we named Chibi.  (2)  I lived on Sunrise Blvd. ~ which makes my stripper name Chibi Sunrise.  (3)  My first adventure in decorating was my college dorm room.  I should have followed my heart way back then.  (4)  I'm a fan of One Life to Live and watch every night on SoapNet.  So sad.  (5)  I am so in awe of creative people and wish I was more like them!  {Note to self - refer to item three above.}

Now for those to whom I pass along the Blog on Fire award. . . I have dedicated this award to talented, creative people who inspire me.

Rosemary at Villabarnes finds the most amazing things and so generously shares tips on how to re-purpose them.

Ozma at Ozma of Odds has a magical blog full of wonderful whimsical ideas. 

I'm looking forward to following Linda's blog Simply Painted, since she is the most creative flea-er and talented painter I know, and I am not above copying her brilliant ideas.

I love Atelier de Campagne, a shop in California and in the words of Rachel Zoe, I'd die to have their wonderful finds!! 

Finally, this is not technically a blog, but I pass this award along to Teresa Hall's board Flea With Me on Pinterest because I gives me such great links to sites that inspire.  I love her other boards, too.

If I was going to make one new year's resolution, it would be to spend much more time filling my heart and mind with the beautiful images you all share on your blogs and boards.

Happy Sunday!
