New vignettes in our shop

We just finished re-displaying the shop. This week was busy with big furniture sales which left alot of holes whioh, of course, means we have to display new inventory! (One of my favorite things to do.) It's always fun to see the store transform and see customers reactions. Here is just a sampling of some of our store vignettes:
This vintage ottoman has been given new life with a custom matelasse slipcover. So cottage-y and comfortable. We also slipcover your ottomans or footstools. Give us a call or ask at the desk - slipcovers are a perfect option for creating a fresh new look in a room and doing it inexpensively.

Silver and sterling are one of our specialties. Here's a sample of a very old Sheffield sugar scuttle. There's nothing like the antique silver items and this piece is no exception with its hand engraving. Any Sheffield silver is always of exceptional quality.

I love these burlap pillows - they're French grain sacks made into pillows and are down filled. Very chic!

How about these 100% linen double boxed ruffled pillows. They're custom made especially for our shop, with ties in the back that give them an extra special sassy look. We can't keep them in and it keeps our local seamstress busy!
I am thrilled to have this Victorian wire plant stand the pillows are sitting in. It is a rare piece with the original paint and looks like it was kept inside. It's perfect for displays. I can picture it in an entryway filled with hydrangeas!

Here's another French grain sack item - this one a seat cushion. We have a lot of these on hand.

I'll be posting more photos tomorrow - I want to capture our displays quick before things sell. :)
'Til then


My friend Kim's Bella Rustica Italian Easter Market in Coronado this Saturday

It was a great morning with Kim, hostess of her Bella Rustica Italian Easter Market in Coronado, her second annual sale in her comfortable, ever-so-stylish Italian-flair home. It was fun meeting so many of Kim's customers and friends. Tamerie and Rita brought their wares, embellished antique bottles, custom pillows, slip covered ottomans, whimsical birdhouses (one which I couldn't resist and took home). And Kim is such a tremendous talent; I admire her energy and creativity and how she makes it all come to life. Her home is so special and every where you turn you see her signature style. Wonderful sale, terrific morning. Bravo!
