Keep Calm....

This has been a busy week at the shop and we've experienced a FIRST here at the shop...The furniture in both of our windows sold..a beautiful 4 piece bedroom set and a dining room table & chairs. Panic set it for a brief moment because we really weren't prepared to re do 2 windows at once, but we will have something in place in the next couple of days. As the old saying goes...Keep Calm and Carry On.

This gorgeous set from a local Coronado estate has found a new home this week, and it's staying right here in Coronado! Love that. I wish I had the picture of the bed and nightstand...simply to die for!

Hummingbird Bottles

We have a little craft box in the back office, filled with bits of old jewelry, bottles and seashells. I've been wanting to do something with some old bottles we have collected so here's what I came up with! I embellished a few bottles with aged brass hummingbirds,,,which I LOVE, vintage clip earrings, pearls and rhinestones.

I had so much fun with this one, that I couldn't stop at just one! So here's my second one. I like them both, but I think my first one is my favorite. :)


(I'm still adding more the top of the taller bottle..not quite finished but decided to take the photo anyway) These bottles will be added to the website shortly..stay tuned!
