When the girls from Shabby Chic called to tell me I had a gift
waiting at the store, I couldn't imagine what it was.
When I went to the store to see,
I was in tears to say the least.
Laurence Amelie had created a masterpiece painting just for me.
I knew exactly where I wanted it to go,
it had to be one of the first things I looked at when I woke up.
I met Laurence through blogging and we instantly connected,
she is warm, friendly, real, and beautiful to boot. I feel
lucky to call her my friend. She is talented and kind. I can not say enough
Laurence has been creating new paintings in Rachel's
barn these past few weeks and they have once again
graced the walls of Shabby Chic
Everyone is going crazy over them.
I feel so grateful to have one, and I know
this painting will be cherished and loved by my family
for years to come.
Thank you Laurence from the bottom of my heart.

I have been re-decorating, again. LOL.
Pieces are finally starting to come in that where on back order
and a few more will be here in June. I can't wait to share.
I thought her painting looked perfect next to our bed with our reclaimed wood night stands. I love my
French cross pillows made with vintage French linens and antique German grain sacks,
by my talented friend Kym of A Beautiful Mess.
I pulled off my heavy Pom Pom duvet and replaced
it with my light linen quilted cream Bella Notte bedspread for
I am really happy with how things are coming together.
My Louis book is from The Agoura Antique Mart.
I can't remember what these flowers where called but,
they remind me of Laurence's painting. Kym
gets the most amazing arrangements in the store every Friday.
I have been working on some wonderful things. I have recently
been hired on with small PR firm and last weekend photographed
my first celebrity event :) A baby shower for the creative director of
Grey's Anatomy & Private Practice. I love those shows. FUN!!!
I hope to soon share some
of the events coming up in May.
BLESSINGS are all around me and
I thank God everyday.
It feels good to be back.
Have a wonderful day.
