New furniture getting ready for a paint job

What a find! Yesterday, I'm sitting home in my PJ's (in the middle of the afternoon), and here comes my husband up the stairs with this fabulous desk he just happened to find. Today it already has a beautiful new white paint job courtesy of Hubby again...What would I do without him. Tomorrow I will try to take it to the shop (with his help, he doesn't know this yet) so it will be there when I reopen January 2nd for my big sale. I'll post a pic as soon as the paint dries. I really love it! It might be hard for me to give it up, but I will.
Wouldn't this be charming in a little girls room as a vanity. I can picture it with a beautiful mirror above it and on top lavish perfumes sitting on a pretty tray and a dainty vintage Kleenex box by it's side. That gives me an idea of how I will set it up in the shop. I can put my new shipment of Pink Sugar on the tray and a bucket of vintage hairbrushes and hand mirrors on there too. Ooh! I'm excited to get it started. I'll let you check it out with new pics soon. Kelli

Well, if you live in Maryland, I'm sure it's quite obvious that the shop is closed today! What a bummer! It just couldn't have waited 'til maybe Monday. It's only the busiest shopping weekend of the year. It's all good, still great stuff left so you all will have to just cram your last bit of shopping into a few less days.

Be sure to stop in and smell the greatest candles ever. They are by K.Hall and are made from soy and beeswax they burn for 100 hours with NO soot. They are seriously flying off the shelf. I started with 36 two weeks ago and I think I am sold out of 2 fragrances and only have 9 left. They really are fabulous. They make a great gift, but be sure to grab one for yourself too.

Just a quick message before I head over to the shop. It always seems like I am getting ready for something over there. Spent 10 hours yesterday rearranging and tiding up for this weekends Midnight madness. I am so excited. I will try to post a few pictures tonight if I get a chance. I am really proud of the window display I created along with my friend Garland who just happened across the street as I was setting it up. It's so beautiful, it looks like a winter wonderland. It's amazing how a can of spray paint can transform an ugly green tree into a beautiful snow covered work of art. It's definitely "beginning to looking a lot like Christmas".
