Framed French Tapestry,Tole and A Darling Chandelier

I love this gorgeous framed French tapestry ($69.95). I think it would look so fabulous in a dining room as it depicts a happy dining scene. This sweet little shabby chic candle chandelier is a bargain at $32.95 and a lovely pair of petite tole sconces would be so charming flanking a mirror in a little powder room ($32.95).

Equestrian Fox Hunt Tea Towels, Gifts and Sugar Sack Pillows

I am so pleased with the new designs I have for more tea towels ($6.95 each). These are taken from classic oil paintings. I really love the little Jack Russels, the classic cherubs and the fox hunt scene. I also stumbled upon a great vintage lot of sugar sacks and made them into little feather stuffed accent pillows, complete with the authentic patina of time ($12.00 each). My next market will be Sunday, October 10th. It's the Sandpoint Antique and Design Market in Seattle. You can click on the link to the left of my blog. My friend Traci and I will have some outstanding items we are saving just for this show. The show stopper will be an authentic gold gilt French settee and matching chair. Yum! Have a great weekend!

Awesome Dragon Mural by Angel's Creative Painting

My friend Suzanna from Angel's Creative Painting just finished this super awesome dragon mural for my son's room. We wanted a dragon that wasn't too forboding and gothic but wasn't too babyish either. This dragon is just right! I had to show off her incredible work. My son loves it! Now all we need to do is the draw bridge and some bricks on the other wall, hang his gothic chandelier and we're done! If you'd like to see more of Suzanna's work you can click on her link at the side of my blog. If you are local to my area, you can stop into my booth at Tuxedo's and check out her portfolio and display. Thank you Suzanna! You are amazing!
