Shopping Fun

Hello Everyone.
Just checking in to say Hello and share a cute little place I went shopping.

I spent the day with these two sweeties.  My daughter Jen and granddaughter Charlotte.

This wonderful place was called Avant Gardens and is now called the Shops on 71.  It is three wonderful vendors that rent this place and sell the most amazing things.  I was here the other day with a good friend and she spied something she just loved so my daughter and I took a ride back to pick up this wonderful gift for my friends birthday. 

Now these next three pictures are for you Texas gals and southwest girls.  One of the vendors takes cowboy boots and stuffs them full of wonderful fall decor for front door decor.  Loved these.

Look at these sweet chippy hangers.  The cloche on the left my daughter bought to put on her dining table.  She will add fall decor under it and make it pretty.

All the vendors are starting to bring out their fall decor.

I loved the faux fall flowers this vendor has made into many cute centerpieces.

Loved this guy he just made me smile.

One of the vendors had a whole lot of "Kris" things.  White, chippy shabbies galore!!!!

Swooning over these white corbels.

Loved this sweet little kitchen island.

Lots and lots of farmhouse decor.

Look at this cute lamp!!!!  This would be so cute in a laundry room.

I of course needed one of these sweet shirts!

Sweet overnight bag.

I am thinking about this lovely piece.  This armoire has hanging on one side and drawers on the other.  I am thinking of getting this and putting it in our bedroom or the guest room of the new house.  Our 1949 cottage we bought does not have big closets so this would give us some more wardrobe storage space.  Of course it will be painted white!!!!  It has really cute feet!!!  The price was really good on this piece and they are having a grand opening sale on Saturday so I think it will be even less.

Progress is continuing on the new house.  Hoping the basement stuff will be done this week and then the garage all done by the weekend.  Then we can start to think about setting up our move in.  Ahhh a girl can dream!!!

Have a lovely rest of the week and wonderful weekend.

Garage and Walls and a New Table and Cuteness Overload

Happy Sunday Everyone.

We finally have a Garage YEAH!!!!

Garage Yes!  Driveway NO!  Boo!!  Hopefully we will be seeing a driveway soon and that load of dirt and wood removed from my sight forever!!!!  We still have some finishing to the garage but hey the structure is finally pass inspection and up!!!!  I feel excited we might actually move in to this house in the next few weeks.

Boring for you to see these mudded walls but so exciting for us.  We have walls and ceilings in the basement.  They will finish these this week with some sanding and primer.

The basement is coming together nicely to give us extra living space in this tiny cottage home.  There will be a family room fireman cave, a office area for Terry, a storage/bedroom, a full bathroom and a huge laundry room with storage.  Ahhhhh I am so excited.  Terry and I will do all the finishing touches like painting of the walls and installing floors ourselves.   We will also finish the bathroom ourselves.  Doing some of the finishing work ourselves will save us money on an already over budget renovation.

I ordered this console table after seeing it on Kim Savvy Southern Styles Blog.  Just love the chippy goodness to this piece.  Kim ordered hers from Houzz.  I found it for less on and had a coupon and free shipping.   The first piece arrived in pieces so sent me a brand new one.  The replacement arrived without any damage.  Yeah!

I was going to put this console table in the living room entry but it is too big for the space so no worries Terry has tools!!! This beautiful piece is going to be made into a dining table.  Since I have another top from the first delivery where the legs were busted he will have enough to make a nice square table top.  He will bring the chippy legs closer together and make this long console table into a nice and sweet little kitchen table.  That is the plan anyway.  So stay tuned I cannot wait to show you how this will be reloved into a new kitchen table.

Here is a preview of the new kitchen chairs.  I took these gray slipcovers and sent them to Lisa Harmon that has worked on other slipcovers for me.  I also sent three matching fabrics to make these ruffles on the chairs.  Lisa does the best work.
Here is her website and I will have more on her when I do a final post of the kitchen when done.  As you can see I am adding some sunshine yellow to my cottage kitchen.

Now for some Cuteness Over Load!!!!

As most of you know we are adopting this sweet little Miss in a few weeks.

So far it looks like a lot of you voted on her name to be Lucy.  I think we will get her and then see what name will fit her personality.

A few new names I am favoring is Belle and Daisy.  We cannot wait to bring her home.

OK on to the cuteness:

The breeder keeps in touch with me and he sent me some pictures of one of "Lucy's" daughter's pups.  One of her pups named Lemon Drop had her pups that are ready to go to new homes.  These sweet little fur bundles just make me smile.

This is Lemon Drop and her cute pups that are all red except for one red and white.  Lemon Drop and her pups are on the other side of the fence.  The little pups are from another basset hound named Belle.  They still have a few weeks before they will be going to their forever homes.

As you can see the one and only red and white is singing and showing off.  I guess when you are different in looks than your brothers and sisters you have to sing to stand out.  Lemon Drops pups are going to their forever homes now.  They are just sooo cute.

This is Boris the father of these beautiful puppies.  As you can see he is a big lug of love.
I cannot wait to get little Miss Lucy, Emma, Belle, Daisy soon!  She will be a wonderful addition to our family.

Have a great new week.  I cannot wait to get moved in our home in the next few weeks and start to unpack my chippy decor items for the new cottage.
