Shabby Chic... Still Amazing

A couple of weeks ago, Rachel Ashwell released on her Shabby Chic blog that the company would be declaring bankruptcy. Long before I even thought of owning my own home, I remember watching her show and dreaming of owning the beautiful, romantic items that she featured. I wanted to mention Shabby Chic here because I still think that it is fabulous and I hope that the company will be able to dig themselves out of this unfortunate problem and become successful and inspiring once again. I'm going to show some of my favorite Shabby Chic items that I have found available on Amazon.com for some pretty amazing prices that I want to use for my new home...
Simply Shabby Chic™ Metal Flower Chandelier
Shabby Chic Corner Cabinet
this one is my favorite and the one thing here that I know I will be buying because it is only $16.82!
Shabby Chic Tray Table

Incense Love

Set of 6 Incense Nag Champa Sunrise Sandalwood Midnight Patchouli Celesteal By Satya

What, $3.89? Amazon.com, you know the way to my heart. midnight is my absolute favorite... set of all 6 though... is this a joke? Instant add to my wish list because I'm being cheap-o and not buying myself anything until I move into my house [plus who wants to move more stuff than you need to?]

I am currently in the process of buying a house so I find myself searching the internet for interior design ideas on a daily basis. I want to share with you some of my favorite interior design blogs that I have found in this process.

things i love thursday

Wow, it's been such a long time since I've posted a "Things I Love Thursday"! So let me get it rolling...

Watermelon - it makes me think of summer and gardens and they are so yummy. I can't wait to have my own garden filled with tasty watermelons and other fresh fruits and veggies.

Home Decor - this has been a recent obsession with the new house. Specifically I am fascinated with mantels, chandeliers, and swings such as this hanging wicker chair.

Photography Gigs - photography is my passion and I haven't been able to take many photos lately. A friend's band just hired me to do photos of their shows so hopefully between that and my photography club I will get back in the swing of things.

Gala Darling - how could I not love her? She's inspired me to blog and she's always pushing a positive attitude. I definitely give her all kinds of credit for making me more positive and thankful for the things that I do have on a daily basis.
