OLD HOUSES


On a recent buying trip.......when I should have been searching for goodies to fill the shop..........guess what I was doing instead. Do you love old houses like I do?? One of my favorite things to do is drive through the historic district of any town and drool over the old homes. They have sooo much more character than any of today's houses.








What fun it'd be to decorate one of these great old homes with antiques.  Sighhhhh..........

  9. Candy...I'm so glad you came to visit me! Where in TN do you live? My big sister is opening a shop in Dickson, TN, this Saturday! PLANTATION WHITE (Google it!).

    I've found a similar framed print to the one I showed on my blog today and turned it into a mirror. Because of it's size it cost me $75 for the mirror to be cut. WHAT? This time I'm doing the chalkboard! I'm sooo excited!

    What a great blog you have! Love the pics...love the chalk paint projects, too! xoRebecca
