Thank you Santa

I wanted to show you some before and after pictures of our recent bedroom makeover which finished up on Christmas Eve Day!! Thank you Santa!! As some of my blog readers know, I have 2 large dogs... one has lots of hair while the other is a puppy. We had shag carpeting in the master bedroom so the puppy never quite figured out that shag carpet was not a good substitute for fresh green OUTDOOR grass.

Here they are with Sophie, our French guest this past summer, and my carpet cleaning machine. (which only put a band-aid on the problem). So you can imagine after 1 year of several stains and horrible smells....

We decided to re-do the floors, which led to repainting the walls, which led to recovering some old chairs, and so forth and so forth. Here is the finished product....


It smells so wonderful finally. And to help me keep up with cleaning the floors, Santa brought me a Roomba for Christmas. This sweet little girl zips around the floors and picks up all the debris and most importantly, dog hair. Love her!!
And finally a sneak peek at some new items that have come into the shop over the past week. Our Christmas has been moved over to one area and is now 60% off. Thus giving us room for our new bird sculptures, tramp art frames, bird cake plates, new pillows, lavender sachets and more....

The new shell shipments have come in and will start to trickle there way out to the sales floor very soon.

New apothecary linen sprays in a gorgeous cobalt blue glass are from our new Etsy artist The Paris Market.

New shipments from our fantastic botanical soaps company have arrived.

Adore this pillow which I put out on December 23rd.. sold both of them the next day. I hope to get more in soon.

Love these bird clips.

And finally these green apple candles which look good enough to eat. Hope to see you soon at The Flea.
