Back to BlogLand!

Well, I certainly didn't do a very good job of keeping up with my blog over the Holidays!  But I did spend a lot of time reading everyone else's blogs!  Everyone's so creative and I get lost reading for (many) hours!

I never know what to do with the shop in January.  Sometimes I do Valentines stuff, but it always comes on me so quickly, that I'm usually too late with any ideas.  It's too early for spring stuff (isn't it?), so I usually just try to be neutral.  Yeah, I know, neutral can be really boring.  But I've been selling lots of stuff and bringing in new things, and I've been having a good time rearranging the shop... so I thought I'd share some pics.

I found some beautiful Belleek heart shaped bowls that helped me put a little "Valentine's" spin on the glass showcase.

I think anything Victorian is always romantic!

I love this little chair.  It's been beautifully covered and has such nice legs! 

Beautiful bench made from an old bed.  It has wonderful old chippy blue paint!  I love the little cupboard sitting in the corner too.

A nice little plantation style desk, red and white coverlet, sled and a wonderful old 20 gallon crock!

I love winter and I love snow, even when it makes it hard to get around.  But I have to say I can't wait for spring this year and all the awesome sales that will be springing up.

Hope you're all keeping your spirits up and staying warm!


  1. It's never too early for spring! :o)

  2. I think we are all thinking Spring and a renewal of decorating and rearranging! Great meeting you in December and seeing your shop! I used my antique ornaments that I bought for my holiday decorating!~Hugs, Patti

  3. Love that little cupboard. That bed bench is neat too. I am coming to your shop next time I am in Ohio. You have some neat things.
    betty, through my back door

  4. Hi Kim....good to see you again. I really like that plantation desk.
