Way back in November, Yes November, Caitlin, my Hubby and I went to the Shabby Chic shop in Chicago. I was in Heaven!!! The holiday trimmings were up and looking ever so beautiful in this fabulous shop. This year they gathered vintage ornaments for each location that would be available to us! Caitlin and I picked out THE SAME ORNAMENT! hahaha One was larger than the other, but each had softly aged cream, pink and yellow on a gold bell. Old fashioned hangers of course!
I love going to this shop. Even though we are able to get there only once or twice a year we are always remembered by Elizabeth, the beautiful girl who works there. She is such a very nice and genuine person! She makes beautiful table scapes for our eyes to feast upon. And then they also have the inviting vinuettes of furniture placements around the shop!!! I would go every week if I could! I have such a feeling of peace and welcoming when I am there or am looking through all of Rachel's books! Oh, there may be another book in the works!!! I have every single book that she has written. One of my favorites is "Shabby Chic: The Gift Of Giving". This one is not in the home decor section...just ask the info desk for it's exact location.
Look how beautifully Elizabeth wrapped our bags!
I am looking forward to visiting all of you again. Due to various situations that included the loss of my logic board and then the internet server problems I have not seen everyones Christmas homes. I do consider it a privilege to be "invited" into your homes at Christmas! I have found "blog land" to be filled with such talent and kindness and FUN! It is such a wonderful place to see the beautiful projects, and talented writers!!! It is a privilage to be in your company!
