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 season...so 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 gain...it'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://http://www.shabbyinthecity.blogspot.com/

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

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