Angel's Spa Retreat









This is Grace my special angel that Terry gifted to me about 5 years ago.

I found a wonderful artist Cathy from Cheswick Company and found that she creates these beautiful one of a kind angels.   Terry gifted this one to me and through the years I have added a few more of Cathy's angels to my collection.  


Grace just returned home from having a spa retreat out East at Cathy's studio.  Her hair and wings were in need of some care.  Over the years like anything else some things can fade and yellow and need a little up keep.  Grace got a new hairdo and some new wings.  Cathy uses lambs wool for their hair and natural feathers for wings.  Love Grace's soft curls.  Cathy also finds vintage christening gowns for each angel.  



This is Hope,  Grace's younger sister. Hope came into my collection a few years ago.


Hope adorns my Christmas tree each year.

This is Faith my Harvest Angel I got from Cathy a few years back.


I love Faith's sweet vintage wool coat and velvet pumpkins.




If you love to sew please visit Cathy at Cheswick Company.com or her Etsy to see all the wonderful kits she sells.  On occasion Cathy has finished pieces such as the angels and this sweet little Hare that is up for adoption.  With Easter just around the corner he needs a new home.

Cathy does not compensate me in anyway for this shout out on my blog.   I just like to shop small business and Cathy is a joy and wonderful creative soul.  Love her precious angels.

Have a wonderful Weekend.
I have some fabulous news to share soon.
Hugs,
Kris

White And Faded Guest Bathroom

As promised here is my guest bath with a few new change ups.

Remember this sweet little scrolly bench?!

With some tweaking and a few repairs it is now a nice bench in my guest bathroom.  Love the patina to this sweet piece.


I have this vintage candelabra. Anyone for a nice romantic bath?
Put this little chippy stool by the bath tub.
The candelabra can be put on this stool too for that long and relaxing bath ambience.

The old picture frames work nicely for towel hangers.


I am on the hunt for some old vintage door knobs to adorn these vanity cabinet doors.  They need a little bling and maybe a wax texture.  Hmmm hunting and thinking on this!

This old mirror is my great grandmothers off an old vintage dresser she had.  I still have not found a use for the old dresser that went with that mirror but I will!!!!!  

A soft sweet faux lamb rug.

An old salvage piece over the window.

I had these three vintage salvage moldings that I had saved from a very long time ago.  I held onto them hoping some day I could figure out something to do with them.  Terry and his tools made a very nice header for over the shower curtain.  So happy that man has tools and can make pretty things for me!

The moldings have a real pretty pattern.  Can you imagine an old home with these moldings round the house!  Ahhhh beautiful.
Just a few new pieces and some tweaking to my guest bathroom.

Have a great week.  We saw sunshine for the first time in 8 days.  It was heaven!
Hugs,
Kris

Most Valuable Decor Piece

Happy Sunday

Just wanted to wish all of you a wonderful start to the new week.  With January ending we are getting closer to Spring!  Wooo Hooo!


Do you have a decor piece that is your absolute favorite in your home?  

Well,  I have to tell you I have a Work of Art or I should say a Work of Heart that I cherish.  

Out of all my chippy, beautiful salvage pieces of history I have put into my decor,  this piece wins my heart.




Yep!!!!! This is a picture made for me by my granddaughter Abby.  It is a picture of our whole family.  As Abby presented this to me she said "I made this for you MiMi because I know how much you love our family".  OMG my heart just melted.
Out of the mouths of babes!!!!

Have a great start to the new week and new month ahead.
I promise I will have my bathroom pics up soon.  As soon as I think I am done,  I get another decor crazy idea start in there!
Hugs,
Kris
