All Popped Up!

 I meant to blog this yesterday, but I fell asleep sitting up in my bed at 8:30 (I'm an 11pm girl!) Soooo, just pretend this is yesterday:)

Yesterday was a heck of a day...getting everything set up was fun AND exhausting all at the same time.  I don't know how I could have done it without my amazing sister!  We did all of this in 2 days!  The rugs came at 4:00 on Tuesday, and I had a Preview Party at 6:00!  Talk about adrenaline....

  I really love the space and the rugs really do warm everything up.  I knew I was going to get some great rug inventory, I but I was blown away by the beauty, quality, and variety (think ABC Carpet and Home in NYC).  These rugs are REAL antiques.

I partnered with a couple of local establishments, Chris from Worth Repeating has allowed me to showcase a couple pieces of their furniture and artwork, and Cameron from Edit, Fluff, and Style as done the same. 

AND

I can't forget to thank the girls, Tara from Jot (a custom stationery shop) and Lara from In the Loop (knitting shop) for letting me move into their space for a couple days!  All of their inventory is greatly reduced, so if you want to buy yarn or stationery, that is for sale too!




The rug over the table is a beauty. And the pillows didn't translate in photos,
but it is a great Cowtan and Tout swirly fabric
notice the framed pieces...a little of my own designs.
lots of bundles of antique books...and these little paintings are really pretty.
and this is where I sit (actually there isn't much sitting) and receive guests!  Isn't that a great ottoman???
 There is one photo that didn't get uploaded, and is one of the best vignettes...(camera at at shop with the memory card...so will get that up when I get to the shop!)

If you are in the area, stop by and see me!
