Plum Perfect


I love Purple! Yesterday I found the sweetest little plum colored velvet chair. So low, cute and curvy. I'm going to give the dark stained legs a few coats of soft black to up the glamor on this little lady and then she's shippping off to the shop -along with the purple fall bouquet I picked up on 70% off at Michaels for a bit of unexpected fall color. A welcome departure from orange and brown! I feel I can bring this purple and green scheme into winter for the Christmas season. What do you think? Is it too early to think about your decorating theme for the holidays?


I picked up this wonderful vintage 50's side table for a steal. My husband rolled his eyes, the legs are wobly, the finish is blotchy and bad. All I saw was clean modern lines, sliding wood doors - cute peep holes! I love it. Imagine how slick it will look with a finish of glossy white? I don't know if this one will be able to leave my house ... I might need some convincing!

Tomorrow - a shop update. Lot's of new things for fall and a bit of a shift in my focus for the winter season.
