Sneak Peek....

Ya' see, I'm getting more timely with my posts! Like most of us I've been really busy with well...just every day things like work (yes, I have a full time job), yard work ~ I've got lots of flowers to plant ~ making dinner, laundry, and lastly getting things ready for the Friday Flea Market. Which by the way, this week I'll have a totally new line up of products for you ~ not the same ones from last week. I thought each week I would add the items that did not sell from the prior week to their appropriate categories. Therefore, each week you'll see new goodies!! Needless to say, the "to do list" is getting big so I'm thinking that it's going to be a late one tonight getting everything posted ~ but hopefully you'll like the new treasures. Speaking of treasures, I'm going to an auction this weekend and thought I would give you a sneak peek of some items I thought were "fabby" and that I am considering bidding on! Hopefully, I'll win some and be able to share my delightful treasures with, you know some are going to be keepers :)! If you see anything you like, please let me know and I'll let you know if I get it.

Okay, this needlepoint chair is really awesome ~ much better than this picture ~ it has some dust on it but it will just wipe off ~ not a problem! I absolutely love needlepoint chairs and ottomans and this is a combo ~ what more could a girl ask for? Perhaps, let me be the winning bidder ~ LOL!!

Okay, another 'fav' of mine is wicker. I think every cottagey shabby style home should have some wicker. There were several pieces that I plan on bidding on including planters and side tables.

Is this not the cutest hooked rug ~ look at the cute rabbits! It is really good condition and they had another that is really beachy which I will try to get as well!

Okay, need I say more about my love for needlepoint. Again, this piece is really dusty but it will wipe right off ~ I'm thinking it will probably go for a pretty penny but I will still try!

These two walls hangings are from Italy and really really nice! There will be lots of bids on them but keep your fingers crossed.Where I live primitive furniture is really in so this piece will also be pricey...but, we shall see ~ it's so darn cuteThis pair of musical cupids that are made in Italy and are really awesome. Hand painted signed picture of bluebirds ~ really adorable!Okay , so I need a pedicure ~ again I've been busy...LOL ~ this wooden shelf is really wonderful

And lastly, a lot of tole trays.

So, what do you think? I'll let you know how I do when I return ~ also, I'm hoping to do a little antiquing this weekend so hopefully I'll be able to show some other treasures as well. Well, it's almost 7 PM here and I haven't even started posting for tomorrow.

Take care, Kerry

It's the Fabulous Friday Flea Market

Well, after some deliberation I decided to go forward with joining in all the fun at the Friday Flea Market. Polly, from, hooked me right up; it's real easy to join. So, late last night I posted eight fabulous treasures to the ShabbyVilla. Please go take a peek by clicking on the red "Friday Flea Market" banner to the right!
I know I mentioned in the last post about my ordeal I've been having with my pool. So, I thought I would share some pictures of what it looks like right now and let me tell's a muddy mess! This endeavor started last year, around June, and the guy started working on it and left it like just like this...wouldn't it be nice to be swimming in a pool on Memorial Day weekend
We've contracted with a new pool company and they started on Wednesday (mind you, they came on Wednesday and have not been back)! Since we've had so much rain the pool had about two feet of muddy water so on Wednesday the new pool company spent most of their time pumping the water out and bracing the pool. What a mosquito haven!!

As I mentioned, the guy started last year and left it just like this with mounds of dirt. Of course, weeds grew all over the place. Needless to say, when my dog goes out he will traipse lots of mud and gunt back in with him.
Don't these stairs look real stable...boy, I hope they fix them so they don't slope!

See the little house with the french doors, that is a little cottage that has a wonderful bedroom and bathroom. Just imagine opening the doors and sitting by the pool...I think I'm going to have lots of friends when this is all!

Well, that's it for now. I will keep you posted as the pool progresses...yes, I think this time it will get done (they told me by June 13th,,,YIPPEE) Hope everyone has a nice Memorial Day weekend. Think of our troops~ I know I will since my son is in the Air Force.

Take care, Kerry

Where Have We Been?

There's nothing like starting a project, like a blog, and not keeping up with it...sorry, I've just been busier than a bee! First of all, I went on well deserved vacation to Puerto Rico for ten glorious days. My boyfriend is a CPA and he is typically totally spent after a long tax off we went to Puerto Rico for some well needed R&R. We had a wonderful time and were sad to come home (it was freezing when we got off the plane ~ what's with the temperature lately). If you've never been to Puerto Rico I would highly recommend it...beautiful beaches, superb food, friendly folks, and awesome weather...just what this tired girl needed! Of course, when your gone for awhile things sort of pile up so I've been trying to get caught up. I've been working on getting things added to the ShabbyVilla and have gone to a few shows. I went to a wonderful show (sorry, forgot my camera) over the weekend and got some really neat things. Some of them were for me (YIPPEE) and some were for the store...take a peek!

Okay, so this cute little folding chair is a keeper! I don't know exactly where I'll put it but I'm sure I'll find a spot. The back of the chair is tiled with sweet roses and look at the chippy paint...oh, I love it sooo much!!

Here is another keeper...I've never seen a tole towel holder...I think you could probably use it to hold magazines as well...the roses are stunning!!

I'm in the process of building a pool (one day I'll tell you the story of what an ordeal it has been) and this vintage lounge chair had to come home with me! Love it!!

I'm not really sure what this container is but the lid comes off...appears it could beverages of some sort because it's insulated inside...I bought it for the aqua color, rust and of course, the ROSES! Another keeper, sorry blogger friends.

This pink, yes PINK, Lloyd loom wicker chair is simply "fabby"...cushion needs to be recovered but that's an easy fix. She will be added to the store hopefully this week...if your interested, please let me know and you can pick out your own fabric.

This valance will also be added shortly...has lovely hand painted roses that was done by my dear friend Beth. She is ever so talented. If you look on our website you will see lots of other beautiful projects she's done as well...she and I are partners in the ShabbyVilla.

This pink dresser is ooh so very cute...lots of chippiness and gotta love those glass knobs...yep, she's also being added to our site.

And, here is a project that I'm almost finished with. I added this lovely fabric to this wicker couch...ooh, I wish I had a spot for this in my house. But, my loss is your's being added to the store this week (hopefully)!
Well, that's it for now my dear blogger friends....I'm considering doing the Friday Flea Market every week. If you've not heard about the Friday Flea Market it's where you have a sale, either on your blog or store, and sell various different items each week. There are several blogs and websites that I visit every week. Here is one of my favorites http://

So, what do you think...should I?

Until next time, which will be sooner than the last post...
Take care, Kerry
