wow. what a week! i’m really happy the weekend is here. next week is a busy one too. which i’m actually particularly happy about. this time of year things are typically quite slow around the bed & breakfast and shoppe so i’m welcoming the activity with open arms.
i have a lot of randomness to share today lets dive right in shall we?
as i’ve mentioned before, i love linking up other blogs and introducing you all to some of the people out there that i love and am inspired by.
keswick and country is another new-to-me blog. and i’m absolutely loving it. i do adore her glamours/country/neutral/yet colorful look that fills the pages of her blog. and i was super excited to see this morning that she’s having a giveaway dreamy giveaway.
and it’s quite the giveaway people. it includes a french canning jar, an antique german grain sack, french ticking lavender filled pillow and dried lavender bundle. can you even believe this!? so excited!
so even though by having you enter will limit my chances of wining i wanted to share it with you anyway! head on over and enter, and while your their, due check out some of her other posts. i know you’ll be inspired!
next up, i want to share my latest goodwill find.
antique suitcases! aren’t they great?
they need a little cleaning here and there … and their not in perfect shape (nor should they be) … but all the little locks work so well.
and it still has a key! and the best part … hold on to your seats! both pieces were only $2. that’s right. two bucks! i’m not sure where they’ll go but that kind of deal was too good to past.
i’m also prepping to hang my curtains (once i sew them of course!).
so i hung the curtain rod yesterday in order to get proper measurements for curtain length.
which surprising i found at walmart. i actually really like it! and i have this, this and this chandelier in my downstairs/common areas (and yes i do realize i have a slight obsession with pottery barn light fixtures … but can you blame me?)
so i feels it ties in quite perfectly with the whole glass ball ‘theme’.
i also got goosebumps today. there i was, minding my own business, scrolling through my google reader checkin’ all my favorite blogs, and their it was … one of my hand painted signs. can you believe it!? so honored. while i was there, i feel head over slippers for this camera display.
and finally i don’t know if i ever introduced you to vivian. she’s the keeper of the gift shoppe. vivian, who was named by my sister-in-law, arrived when i first opened my shop. originally i intended to sell her, but never had the heart too. so now she’s here to stay.
she’d been moved around here and there but has had the same ‘hair’ (a fern) for about two years.
well, this winter vivian was kind of neglected. (shame on me) and her hair ‘died’ … literally. so with spring around the corner (please hurry) i felt she needed a new do for 2011.
what do you think?
a little more sleek and modern i’d say. very 2011.
i hope you enjoyed my randomness. have make an amazing weekend!
