another chance to personalize...

here's your chance to have a personalized headboard - twin size headboard attaches to your existing bed frame - painted a beautiful shade of pink - and you can have it personalized any way you like... options?
1 - classic monogram like you see here
2 - name
3 - word (like dream or good night or sweet dreams)
lots of fonts to choose from - everything from fancy and frilly to fun and funky (noticce the impressive use of alliteration there!)
i have this same headboard available in black (which would look way cool with lime green, hot pink, or white on it!)

Let's get organized!!

super set of cubbies - there are nine (saved you the time of counting :D ) and there are so many ways these could be used. i have decided to showcase my top two favorites here...
#1 - could be used as a shoe cubby. i have shoes in this from my 4 year old all the way up to my 15 year old (i must say we skipped the boy - his need to be in an airtight container and handled only while wearing a hazmat suit) so i'd say any size shoe would fit. great for by the door or use it in your closet for your own nine favorite pairs of shoes. :D

#2 - could be used in a home office - give everyone in the family a cubby and that's where they put notes from school - lists of what they need - papers to sign - agendas - outgoing mail - etc.

charming pink night stand

adorable night stand - little bun feet - two shades of pink (and neither shade is in the pepto bismal family!!! that's hard to do - i'll expect some compliments there!) brushed silver hardware - one drawer and bottom cabinet that looks like a little shutter opens for lots of storage! really cute in a little girls room - or i took a picture with it in my bedroom with some sparkly accents (i LOVE sparkles) and more grown up accessories.
this piece still available $60.00

blast from the past...

i haven't done one of these in a while - just a basic black dresser - kinda retro looking with silver hardware - nothing hugely fancy...but amazingly versatile and incredibly useful!!

THANK YOU~~~really!!!!

back safe and sound from the funeral trip - just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who wished us a safe trip and sent thoughtful messages. amazing to me that someone you don't even know can turn your whole day around just by thinking of you. i truly appreciate it!


search the desk #2 - and look at the photos - i have added a desk chair to that set and an adorable antique key drawer pull accented with a silk ribbon, beads and tassle. NOW it seems complete and NOW how can you pass it up??

funky little end table

trying to sneak a couple more posts in before i leave...
this is a funky little thing i found...end table topped with a piece of marble...with two doors that open for lotsa storage.. whimsical little legs and hip hardware... quirky little piece. (how am i doing on my adjectives?? pretty cool huh?)
this one is priced astonishingly low because - in the spirit of full disclosure, there is one small stain on the marble. i have artfully disguised it with the wee yellow photo frame you see in the picture. you too can cover it with no problem. so...

STUNNING french provincial dresser

beautiful (its not my fault - not ONE of you has e-mailed me new adjectives to use!) french provincial dresser. cream color with stunning (again, not my fault) hardware. (this is the same batch of hardware that i spent hours cleaning and sacrificed the skin on my arm and hand for - chemical burn - ouch!) i decided to kinda stage this one as a sideboard. it's fun to think "out of the box" and this doesn't just have to be a dresser. this is in my entryway and although i probably need a splash of looks really nice in the front foyer. it would also be beautiful in a dining room as a buffet...especially if your table is the queen anne style! and obviously it would look adorable in a little girl's bedroom. look around your house and i bet you'll decide there are a couple of places you could use this!

i can personalize this...

cool black toybox - complete with air holes in the back (kinda cracks me up - apparently incase your little one climbs in...) and safety hinge that keeps the lid from closing on little fingers. cushion on top is gorgeous paisley fabric in pinks, greens, blacks...
BUT WAIT...think how cute it would be with your child's name on the front in hot pink (or the color of your choice as long as you have good taste - ha!)

how fun is this?????

so let me just confess that there are things that i finish, and i stand back and i'm all proud or excited and my family will come in and in a very loving way ask something like "do you really think someone is going to buy THAT?". (and just for the record, so far, yes - someone has!) THIS piece i brought in from the garage and everyone -all six of them- loved it! it was so much fun! i started to keep it just so i could hear them praise me on a regular basis... :)
this is an antique distressed bookcase backed with brown polka dot fabric. it's painted a cream color and rubbed with an antiquing gel. super cheerful, fun and happy. lots of storage space! i didn't "fill it up" so the fabric would show in the pictures, but there is a lot of space for organizing. i took the photos in my front room and although it's a distressed "shabby chic" kinda piece it looks awesome next to my pottery barn leather chairs. so it's pretty neutral. would look good accented with all kinds of colors - i think it would even be fun in a kids room with pink accents for a girl or blues for a boy.

WAY cute 2 drawer dresser

so i decided to stray from my normal way of doing things and make something for a man. whooooo - am i funny or what??? seems that everything i make is for a girl! i really gotta work on that. BUT - that being said - isn't this adorable? 2 drawer dresser - cream color with silver hardware, pink accents and floral sides. would work with lots of color schemes because of all the colors in the floral pattern.

teensy little end table

solid wood 3 drawer end table/night stand is white, has polka dot drawer fronts and cool green drawer pulls. looks really cute in a boy's room. HA! only kidding. probably lends itself more to a girls room - but hey - decorating is very

console table

so someone needs to e-mail me ( and give me some adjectives besides beautiful, charming, gorgeous, and stunning. (and i'd rather not have suggestions like average, so-so, run of the mill, and mediocre!). i feel like i am always repeating myself...but this is a beautiful piece. a very charming console table. gorgeous carved detail. a truly stunning piece of furniture. (HA! there! i used all of my overdone adjectives!) this is actually a cool looking thing to come in and drop your mail and keys on.
