Horses Tale

Dear Friends

Thank you for always tuning in and I love sharing my beautiful "Goodwill Finds"!  This find is a Shabby rocky horse all painted up with chalk paint and a horses tale!  I know, tail, but my Goodwill Finds are all about tales for me almost, Fairy Tale.  Creating and making something cheap and more beautiful.  Yes, I created a horses tail, what do you think?  My first Goodwill Find in the background of the rocky horse, my beautiful angel wings made out of wire coat hangers and a lace shower curtain.  One of my favorite Friday Goodwill Finds.  Can't wait to use this in my shabby Christmas decor, are you getting ready, that is for Christmas? Stay tune always more shabby beauty to come...

Fall In Love

Dear Friends

Thank you for tuning in are you ready to "Fall In Love"! I want to share a quote, "If you Love something, it will work, That's the only rule."  Bunny Williams, Interior Designer. You see I share Bunnies philosophy because sometimes cost can be a factor so most of my living room is "Shabby" or "Vintage" but "I have to Love It"! To me no matter how big the house or how small the cottage, or the budget,  if you love it, it will work.

Shabby Fairy Tale

Dear Friends

I wanted to share a story with you, I started my blog out of grief and life changes but before that I fell in love with "Shabby"!  I bought a book from an antique store and read and fell in love with Rachel, Shabby Chic!  I read her story about her and her mum! Her mum repaired dolls and her customers would come for miles to have their shabby doll parts repaired.  I also loved that Rachel shared her memories of antiquing with her parents.  I did not know at the time what the word "Shabby" meant but when I looked up the meaning I feel in love again, you know why?   I love making things beautiful again and I love pink, and I knew one day I would like to meet "Shabby Chic".

Serving Up Fall

Dear Friends

It seems every post lately there is something horrific going on in our world and its hard to stay focused on the positive. Don't you agree?  I made a promise to myself and my mother who I miss terribly, you see she was my friend, mentor and that person who gave me unconditional love.

Southern Ingredients

Dear Friends I wanted to share a recipe from my southern roots.  I was born in Alabama but was raised in NC and I call North Carolina home,  my father still lives there with two of my brothers and their families.  At work I talk to people all over the US and instantly they know I'm from the south, I wonder why?  I tell them, "You can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl.  A very true statement for me, I left a small country town on a greyhound bus from Hamlet, NC to Atlanta, GA.  No job, no car, just family who took me in at eighteen years old.  I'm very proud to be born and raised in the south and just cause I sound southern doesn't mean I don't love pink!
