Right now in the shop, we have some absolutely wonderfully fantastic Vintage Pieces! Vintage Furniture and Accessories are one of my most favorite things to find. Seriously, when we find things that are in great condition, really unique and have purpose; we just can not help ourselves! Pictured to the left are really great old wooden thread spindles. They are from India and were used in Textile Mills. They would be a great addition to any bookshelf and will make any room feel cozy, which is so important!

There is absolutely no reason you should have boring knobs on a piece of furniture! We have every size, style and color you could possibly imagine. Plus, they are only $6 to $29.

Gail & I were so excited to add Fruits and Passions, Cucina line into our mix at the shop! The product and top notch and the packaging is absolutely beautiful. All the Hand Soaps and room fragrances are in re-useable glass bottles and the lotions are in a ceramic bottle. Since all the containers are re-usable, you only have to buy the refills of all products in a recyclable plastic container. The scents are wonderful! Come and get a free sample!

I have fallen in love with the Vintage glass Milk Bottles we have! We only have two dozen, so they won't last long. They are perfect for a little bunch of fresh herbs, flowers are even to hold found buttons or pencils. I know I love something when I try to come up with as many uses as I can possibly think of. I think they are great and at least one will be making its way to my kitchen!

I know I have brought up these funky swirled rattan chairs before. But you have to see how fun they look in this great Atlanta home! They are in the sitting area of a master suite. They are placed with traditional furniture surrounding them! So fun and funky!

It is so hard to find a floor length mirror that is not super tacky and lacking all style. Most floor length mirrors you find are just a plain old mirror that you attach to the wall or a highly ornate one. We customize these and they can have any kind of molding you want and can be in any color!

Doing design work is a constant for us. It is a lot of fun and allows us to use so many different areas of our creativity in design. Each one is different. Currently, home staging for home owners and realtors tying to make their homes look the best they can to potential home buyers. Some of the homes have been so much fun to work on! A few we did from top to bottom. Choosing the paint colors for the walls to every single furnishing and accessory. The most recent one that we did is on Emory Road and will be having its first open house on Sunday. It is a fantastic home. I could move right in! The last home we did on Lanier Blvd in Virginia Highland was under contract after the first day it was on the market! The response on our design work was astounding! i am posting some before and after shots of the home that we just finished last evening.

Sometimes bringing the outside in, really works in a room! These garden style ceramic side tables are a perfect example. You can not only use them on a porch or garden room, you can also use them as a side table in a living room or even a bedroom. They add a little flair that is really different. It also adds some originality to a room and great natural toned colors!

This coffee table made from an old hand truck and old wagon wheels is such a great conversation piece to add in a family room. It just came in and is already going to a nice home! I think it is a really cool and fun piece. The hand tufted 8x11 all wool rug it is sitting on is full of color and I absolutely love it! We also had it a while ago in an 8' round which was equally as great! It really adds a fun aspect to a room with solid colors. It has pink, brown, yellow, orange, white and charcoal!

We just got in these great round trays and bowls that are all hand painted. They are really special. Each one is different but they are all full of bright happy colors! We have them in green, black, pink and yellow.

For some reason I can not stay away from anything with flowers! Oh yeah, and pink! I never thought I liked girly things so much until I started to really pay attention to it. A few weeks ago, I came across the most fantastic white ceramic plates with handmade flowers around the edges. So, I bought all that they had. They are great for a gift because they can really go in any style of decor. They also can be used for many things other than a traditional plate. You could hang them on the wall for simple accessorizing, use them for candle trays, and I could go on and on. A few may have to make their way to my house, I do not think I will be able to resist!

I absolutely love design books! They really give some of the best ideas and can help you come up with an idea on your own. They are just fun to peak through. I have them at my fingertips at all times at my place. We also have quite a lot at the shop always, for you to purchase or just enjoy at the shop!
