can you see what i see?




My friend and neighbor Jackie called me earlier today to tell me she was going to have a yard sale the end of the week and would i like to come see what she had.

WELL, OF COURSE!


Jackie has great taste, she actually worked for me on Sundays when i first opened the shop, so she knows how i decorate and how i love to find one of a kind pieces for the shop.


This lovely french mirror was the first thing that caught my eye, so i slowly moved over to it and casually said "how much?"

Jackie said, "go ahead, just take it."

uuughhh, "o.k."

I tried not to act like it was THAT GREAT, since really, who wants a piece that is chippy, had layers of paint, and has lovely scroll work under the paint!


So, here is my find for the week, and it sits in my dining room on another frenchy, chippy, layered painted dresser.

Hi Kasey,

I'm glad you found my blog last night...thanks for stopping by! I love your "new" old chippy mirror.....and the chippy dresser....and the chippy mantel...LOL....I guess I'm just a chippy kinda girl! I was reading your quote on the sidebar and realized I have the exact same garden sign in my back garden (which is sadly neglected right now). Your children are adorable....makes me miss mine at that age, but now they are all grown and giving me grandbabies. I would love to exchange blog links with you.

Right now I'm going to run over to that other blog you linked to and see pics of your shop.

See ya again soon,
Debbie :)

Hey there - thanks for stopping by my blog. :) I'm glad to know about yours! It's been my dream to have a little shoppe someday.... I'll have to settle wth etsy for now (not up and running yet, however). The mirror is fabulous - and free makes it even more fabulous! I really like your photographic vingettes, as well. You must be a talented lady!

What a great mirror! I love it. I never find things that fab at yard sales--let alone at sales held by friends willing to give me their best stuff! -Julia
