Feelin' Spring

Umm, just loving the new spring colors in the store. Aqua and white with a touch of black. The dreamy wicker sofa is the work of Patti Erwin of Patti's Artful Design. She made wonderful new cushions with removable covers . She is seamstress extraordinaire along with being a wonderful artist. Look for future posts of her original art work for sale in the store. So very talented!! Give the store a call with any questions 805.237.8533 .

The Hunt

People often ask me where I find things for the store, and I wish I had just one place, it sure would make my life a lot easier, but the truth is I am always on the look out for unique treasures for my customers. Sometimes I come home with a full load (see photo), and sometimes I come home empty handed, but it's always the thrill of the hunt that keeps me going!!

Note: the funny green thing in the back of my car is a wonderful, to die for (really), wicker table with the best color of green paint. It's on it's way to the store this week, so stop by and take a peek.

Happy Monday,
