New Bed project update...

So it has been a little while since I showed you my daughter's new used bed. It was so cute! I actually scored two beds and I did get to keep the second one for someday when we have a room that will hold two twins.

Here is the bed before..

Here is the bed Miss V's room.. it is very pink in there but when you are five pink is the bomb! I have a great little bird wall decal that I bought her in Paris that I still need to put above the pink scalloped wainscot. Someday... for now she has a new bed that she loves. Even if she is like the princess and the pea sleeping up high!

What do you think?

This week and the next... oh and last week too..

I don't mean to seem crazy but sometimes (just sometimes) it happens.  I have been really busy as of late- in the best way possible!  I have a ton of things that I want to share with you and I just cannot seem to keep up!  I have been shopping, working and working oh and exploring.  But I promise that I will be sharing more and more as soon as I can find the time!  

Tomorrow I will be posting some new vintage finds to Etsy and sharing some garden things with you!  It is supposed to rain here in Southern Cal so maybe just maybe I can sit down and get somethings done with out that pull to go outside and see what the flowers are doing!

In the meantime.. here is a picture of a few of the vintage cameras that I picked up last weekend for Etsy and for my Bride client who will be using them on the tables at her wedding with black and white film!  I am keeping my fingers crossed that the pictures turn out as fun and fabulous as we hope they will!

Shop: The Nest San Luis Obispo, Ca

This past weekend I was able to get away for a short girls trip to the Central Coast of California.  I had a chance to do a little shopping.  The Nest is one of my favorite stores to visit when I am in the Central Coast.  They have a fun mix of Vintage and new items.  I can always find a wonderful gift for my hostess!  Next time you are in town you will have to pay them a visit.  The store is in a fabulous old building that was built in 1874.

Long Beach Flea Market..

Vintage documents and artwork..

English, French and Chinese antiques...

So this past Sunday I finally had a chance to fit in the Flea Market @ Long Beach.  I was so excited!  We were lucky to find some of our favorite vendors there with their fantabulous goodies.  I did manage to buy a few things for myself, a few things for you and a few things for some clients...  But you will have to wait and see what they are.  Until tomorrow then!

Spring fever!

Over the weekend the weather was wonderful and we had a chance to take a little hike on the trails by our house. The flowers are just starting to bloom and it was so nice to just get away from it all for a few hours and listen to the kids play in the water ways and see a little bit of nature. Hoping you get a chance to enjoy some Spring soon!
