My Dear Friends Shabby Cottage Home

Last time I listed on ebay, I forgot to list this sweet Clay Pot that I had painted. Isn't this just the sweetest Pot you have ever seen? I did this in a soft pale pink and light blue, with of course, my signature pink roses....a lovely addition to the shabby chic lover in you! This is listed on my Ebay this week! I wanted to share my dear friends Susie's home with my friends. She has such a wonderful eclectic taste. Her living and dining room are sooooooooooooo Shabby Chic. And I can even brag a little, cause I helped her arrange her living room a few years ago. So get a good cup of your favorite morning beverage and sit back and enjoy!
Looking into the Living Room.

This Wicker Setee was covered with a $5 garage sale find...isn't that fabric yummy?

Susie was able to carve out a little area for her desk to pay bills...

The Dining room and all its wonderful *EYE CANDY*!

Sweet little Vinettes...

I would love to hear what you all think...please leave me some comments and then I am going to pass these on to Susie!

Oooh, Lorena, your friend has done just about everything right! She has dark furniture that she has put covers/doilies/cloths on to make it not so dark, spread a lot of "shabby" items around her house. Looks like she has some of your gorgeous roses also. ;-) I think she may like Audrey Hepburn too! ;-) Plate wall is exquisite. Painted as much of her things white as she could or wanted to paint. I have some of those little vintage suitcases that I got at a yard sale for 50¢ and painted them pink. They look amazing when painted. Let her know that. They look nice either way though but I just wanted them freshly painted. I used to stack 3 together to make a side table in a bedroom but don't need to do that now so just put them on my plant shelf. Actually, have her go look at my home up in the right hand corner of my blog: Connie's home>click to view my home. Even that may give her some more ideas. But she did a darling job of making it shabby chic!!

Lorena, I don't know if you knew or not, when you go to your profile there is nothing listed under blog, so you can't link to you from your comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. I love it when people share their homes, tell your friend, (and you!) good job!
