IT'S HERE!!!!!!IT'S HERE!!!!!!

I received Rachel Ashwell's newest book 'SHABBY CHIC INTERIORS' and it is soooo beautiful! I had pre-ordered it as soon as I heard it was being published and was so excited to finally see it in my mail box. I read every page and studied every photo like a child with a new toy. It is actually larger than her other books and, in Rachel Ashwell style and photographer Amy Neunsinger, full of delicious photos of her home as well as others. I love how she describes her rooms - she is truly a treasure. I think the Shabby Chic style will be around for a very long time, don't you? If you haven't gotten yours yet, you can order it on This is one of those books that you will look at over and over again.

Till next time.............

Shades of white........and a bit of color

A collection of white pitchers.

Meet Fergie. ...guard dog, baby sitter, bug killer, cat chaser, voted "worst gas ever", gardener, most loveable lap dog. She is pretty great.

The flea market is also a great place to buy flowers, fruits, and veggies. These roses are white with a green tint. So pretty.

This is my newest favorite vintage hat. It is packed with milinary flowers. It is absolutely gorgeous! Check back on for many new vintage hats, purses and gloves. We are going to have a huge sale in October! Sign up for our e-mails so you don't miss it.

Butterfly Bush was the perfect name for this plant. I have about a dozen of them in different colors. My yard is always full of butterflies and hummingbirds. And they make great cut flowers too.

Hope you enjoyed my little bit of white.
'Till next time.....

We have a new baby in the family!!! Nicole and Manuel are the proud parents of Fibi Pearl. She was born on August 31st and is the cutest little love.

Stella is thrilled that she has another new baby sister. She has already been a big help. Yesterday Fibi was sleeping and dad told Stella to let her be for a while and he left the bedroom thinking she was behind him. By the time he reached the kitchen and turned around Stella had already taken Fibi out of the bassinet and was rocking her. That's our Stella.
Maci is also excited. She rubs Fibis head and kisses her cheek. It is so sweet to see little ones together. Such a house full of love and laughs (and a bit of craziness). Can you tell I am a proud Grammie?
Mama, Papa, Fibi and Doctor 'V' are all doing great. Dr. 'V' and the nurses at the hospital were awesome! They made the experience wonderful. Manuel and I coached Nicole to breath and push and Manual cut the cord. We kept the feeling very light, I mean who laughs while giving birth? This is my 3rd delivery and I think we are all set to deliver ourselves next time.....maybe.
I LOVE my family and am enjoying every second of this beautiful life.
Till next time........
