Top Projects of 2011

Hey Friends!

I wanted to share with y'all what I've been up to in 2011 and recap some of the projects I've completed. It's always fun to look back and see what I’ve accomplished for the year. I've had such a busy year with renovating and opening our antique store, redoing tons of furniture throughout the year, starting my blog, and working on house projects too. So I have much to share this year, I just can't believe its flown fly so fast.

Our store's one year anniversary is January 4th. It was so much fun to be so productive and to get lots of things accomplished in 2011. Starting a business was a huge change and major accomplishment for me this year. I'm so thankful and blessed at how successful our store has done this year. I'm sending out a huge THANK YOU to all of our sweet customers and supporters! I LOVE what I'm doing and appreciate all the business; we couldn't do it without you. Here's to another successful year!

Let's start with the remodel of our store.

Ugh... When we first started the remodel, the store had two different colors of commercial grade carpet that was so disgusting and ugly; it all had to be ripped up. We did an overhaul on our store with fresh paint on the walls and floors, we added and closed up walls, redid the bathroom, painted the outside awning and interior brick, then finally we hung floor to ceiling burlap drapes in the front three windows and added all the furniture and merchandise.

What a major difference!

Now onto a few furniture makeovers. We've completed and painted over a hundred pieces of furniture this year.

Then we did a little summer backyard and patio makeover at our house.

I'm looking forward to what 2012 has in store for our business and my personal life. God sure has blessed me this year by putting special people in my life that are truly blessings and now great friends! We will be coming up on mine and Jacob's fifth wedding anniversary in June . . . where has the time gone!?  

In 2012 I hope to travel more, help others more, grow more spiritually, meet more inspiring people, begin to grow a family and my business, and grow closer to God and my family. I have so much to be thankful for!

What are your goals for the upcoming year?! I would love to hear them! Wishing you a Happy New Year.

Mrs. H's Home Tour- Part 2

If you missed my friend, Mrs. H's Christmas Home Tour, check it out here.

I'd love to show you all the beautiful, painted antique furniture we did for Mrs. H that was bought at our store. Some of my favorite pieces have to be the dresser in her front foyer and the desk in her master bedroom with the painted drawers and legs, and the original wood top left natural. Well... I actually love all the pieces she chooses from our store; they all look wonderful in her home!

She has such great taste and an eye for picking out quality pieces, decorating, and styling her home. I love all her beautiful collected antique bottles, ladders, books, china, collectables, grain sacks, art work, and unique accessories and furniture throughout her home; it has a comfortable and collected feel that I adore. 

I'm so blessed to have met and gotten to know Mrs. H in the past year, not only as a customer but a close friend. She is constantly pouring out kind words, precious handmade and thoughtful gifts, Godly advise, and creative ideas. She often says that she's adopted Jacob and I, we don't mind having our customers become our close friends. I love what I do because I meet people daily that I would have never met otherwise. God surely has blessed our business and our lives this year! Thanks for the love and support. 

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas!


Mrs. H's Christmas Home Tour- Part 1

My friend, Mrs. H decorates beautifully for Christmas and year around too, I knew that y’all would enjoy seeing it, so I did a photo shoot at her house while I was at her annual Christmas Party and I'm sharing today. You’re going to love it. Her home tour is in 2 parts because there's too much to share for one blog post.

The mantel is accented with white, gold, and silver along with natural sticks and hydrangeas.

I'm inspired by this gorgeous antique secretary in the formal living room. Mrs. H incorporates a lot of her mothers antiques that were inherited, mixed with a variety of her own.

Who wouldn't want a fresh cut Christmas tree in their master bedroom, it's a wonderful idea!

The tree is simply accented with birds and pops of red through out.

LOVE this branch tree with mercury glass ornaments! This project is definitely on my to-do list for next Christmas!

An overview of the living room, she has a great eye for decorating.

The dining room buffet decorated in gold and silver for Christmas.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of Mrs. H's Home Tour. I'll be showing you all the pieces of furniture we painted for her, bought from our store. I can't wait for you to see how beautiful they look in her house. Come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the talented Mrs. H.

Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our home, I'd like to show you around! We have been busy decorating the inside and outside of our house for Christmas. This year I decorated very simple with natural materials and lots of red accents. I've joined The Inspired Room and The Nester for their Virtual Christmas Home Tours.

I made my front door wreath, mailbox swag and dining room table centerpiece using natural greenery, magnolia leaves, pine cones and red berries.
