2016 A Shabby Girls Life...

Dear Friends
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas full of Joy and sweet memories.  I will be on holiday New Years and wanted to share some of my favorite pictures and top post from my blog 2016.  I share Goodwill Finds, shabby castaways and making them beautiful again on the cheap and hope you've enjoyed the transformation and a story to keep you entertained.  There are some very dear bloggers out there who party, host and yes feature and I can't thank you enough.  To those friends who tune in or click, thank you and even leave a comment in our so busy world.  My family who continue to support my love of my blog, thank you, you give this shabby girl something to smile about.  To a prosperous new year including much more love and happiness!
Stay tune for more shabby beautiful...

Friday Goodwill Finds:Twas The Night Before Christmas!

Dear Friends

I could not let December get away without sharing a Friday Goodwill Find and I said this before, I love finding things that go with the theme.  The Cinderella room has a little Christmas, how about a couple of Napco mice to add to the theme "Not a creature was steering, not even a mouse.", and a  sweet Christmas lace pillow.  I did my first video on Instagram, nervous!  I have so much more to share, stay tune for more shabby beautiful.

Shabby Queen Christmas II

Dear Friends

There is nothing more magical than a child and their anticipation of Christmas.   I certainly remember seeing this thru my children's eyes.  My children are adults now but we still anticipate Christmas and create wonderful memories.  My son was born a week before Christmas and I remember sitting on Santas knee when I was pregnant and wishing for a little boy and the anticipation of a Chrstmas baby, we named him Christopher?  We will be celebrating his 31st bithday, where did the time go?

This is my rose gold inspiration Christmas tree with a crown and star adorning the top.  The armoire is finished and is decorated with puff hearts on the the oval mirrors.  My heart certainly belongs to Christmas.  The top of the armoire is decorated with Goodwill lamp shades and my Mommie Dearest wings.  The tree is finished and most of the presents are wrapped and I am  enjoying lots of Christmas reflections.

Stay tune for more shabby beautiful!

Shabby Queen Christmas I

Dear Friends

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  My father and my oldest brother came to see me and we had a great visit.  No Friday Goodwill Find but instead I have been decorating for Christmas!  Shabbyqueen is my Instagram name and if you want to see a sneak peek of things to come, I would welcome you following me on Instagram, you will not be disappointed!  This year I'm going with some rose gold and a crown for my tree.  My mantel has a vintage frame with angels who are saying "Be your own single beauty!"  I have several vignettes, a silver bowl with angel wings and bells, a little pink and aqua.  My living room has new paint, a bigger TV and armoire we had to redo to hold the TV, and new curtains to show case my "Shabby Queen" Christmas tree.  These are just a few pics and my mantel is done.  Stay tune, the tree is yet to come.
