Shabby French Chic

I'm adding French flair to my shabby chic decor. My living room was the staging area for some new pillows. They are now available at and at Very Vintage in Agoura Hills, CA. Here are more photos of my current space at Very Vintage. Thanks for browsing!

Sidewalk Sale Snap Shots

June gloom didn't stop our June sale!

As promised, here are some photos of our outdoor sale. This was the first photo I took at 6:30 a.m. This blue farm table was the first piece unloaded. You can see the glass plate and dome for our triple chocolate cookies. Yum! This was the first pile of cutepinkstuff. While my husband and daughter drove home for our second of several loads, I stayed to organize our "stuff." More "stuff." It's coming together. This special patio chair/table found it's way to a new friend's home. Anita, it was meant for you! Every corner was taken. We had a mix of cottage, shabby chic and French "stuff." The three brown burlap chairs were purchased by a thrilled Interior Designer! (See those triple chocolate cookies?) Garden decor is always a favorite! This iron and glass table with 4 chairs is still available at Very Vintage. If they don't sell soon, I guess I'll have to take them home! This glider/bench has a new home in Heather's backyard garden. Michelle at The Bella Cottage bought the white cane back folding chairs. This GORGEOUS bed was offered by LeAnn, a vendor at Very Vintage. We had a mix of old and new, dark and pink. . . lots of PINK! The buffet was also LeAnn's beautiful piece. My teen daughter and I sat behind the blue table sipping coffee and nibbling on those triple chocolate cookies! Oh no, that's my reflection in the window taking the photo! I'm ending this post with the highlight of my day: Anita, the beautiful PINK roses will not soon be forgotten. The opening blooms are gorgeous!

Anita's Roses

These are Anita's Roses! Today, I had a sidewalk sale at Very Vintage and Anita showed up with a gift and a smile. Anita and I met at the Little French Flea Market last month. We are virtual strangers if time is our gage. Yet, I feel as if Anita is my childhood friend when we meet. Anita, your kindness today is beyond measure! When I saw you walking toward me with the most beautifully pale pink long stemmed roses I've EVER seen, my heart filled with warmth and gratitude. Gratitude for your kind gesture, but mostly for a friend only God could place in my path. This post is devoted to you, Anita!

Pool Side Gardening

It's that time, again. . . . Gardening pool side! Our family spends a great deal of our summer days in the back yard swimming, grilling and entertaining. My husband built our deck and arbor.For me, summertime means pulling weeds, amending soil and planting plenty of flowers. This year, we pulled out our overgrown morning glory. It's returning on our fence at a pace faster than we can remove it. Prolific indeed! Our kind neighbors have a beautiful orange tree that peeks over our fence. Pink and white petunias and roses are the flowers of choice this summer. They provide instant color and thrive in our hot southern California sun.These roses will end up in vases! My flower boxes are growing ivy geraniums. The climbing roses love this bunny!I tease my daughter that by the time she's ready for marriage, the climbing roses will finally cover the arbor where she will say her vows!
Thanks for stopping by. Happy gardening to all!
