Around the Shoppe

Happy Friday everyone!  We had a really busy weekend last week and a pretty busy week this week restocking and getting everything rearranged.  So, I thought I would snap a few photos of the new stuff at the shoppe this week... a little tour if you will.

The barn wood rope boards are one of Mr. Hughes'  original designs... he made one for a display once and since then he had several requests to make others.  

I ordered bunches of dried lavender and billy buttons as well.... I like the way they look in the burlap bags.

We had these old smaller jars with zinc lids hanging around, so I filled them up with some organic lavender.... if you give them a little shake and then open the lid, the whole space smells like lavender!

I haven't been posting photos of my furniture pieces here as much... only because Facebook is a fast little way to do that.  A few of you have asked though, so I thought I would share the most recent pieces that I finished this week:

Meet Jules

And Ruth

And Harriet (named after a favorite book of mine as a child!)

and Doris. 

I get quite a few requests for dressers of this size... because they are so versatile, AND because they are a great height for a changing table!  I love to know when my pieces are going to be used in nurseries!

Have a great weekend everyone!  I will be back next week with a winner for the Sweet Little Giveaway... you have until Sunday night to enter!

bye for now~

  10. I love the three dressers...and their names! Too bad I live in Maryland.

    By any chance do you remember the name of your wall paint? It's beautiful.
    I went back and checked older postings to see if you had mentioned it but couldn't find anything.
    I love blue gray walls.


    1. Hey Tery H, I happend to JUST get done devouring her entire blog and read on one of her posts that she calls the paint "Vintage Map". Not sure where I read it in here at the moment? She made the color herself was in Benjamin Moore paints. Maybe she will give you the color code?!

  11. It all looks great -- very pretty arrangements that I'm sure are going to have you restocking again very soon! Love that old bird cage and all of the lavender!

  12. Everything looks so wonderful and lovely!

  13. Michelle,

    I am going to suggest to Thomas that we take a road trip to TN! I adore your shop and your staging skills. I have an antique vanity that could use your magic painting touch.

    Your Friend,
