Pretty bits

Thought you may like some more pictures of "the shop".  April 1st is our official day to have everything ready.  We have been polishing, photographing and madly entering things into the computer and most of all having fun.

 April 1st will also be the start of our "Sparkle and Pink" Giveaway, and we have been trying to decide on our lovely gift. (we like to add some little extras).  So please check back on Thursday April 1st, and we should have things sorted.


  1. the silverware in the milk glass is too wonderful...

  2. Hi Chania, what a beautiful store...I love milky glasses and all you have. Are you in Alberta? I'm guessing not...i wish we were closer. But when I go back home to visit my family, we always stop by in Toronto.
    Lovely day for you,

  3. Oh WOW! These pics are so gorgeous as usual Chania!! I am so excited for you and Lorraine, not long to go now!!! I love those old wooden pegs in the basket next to your gorgeous pink china!! Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday ~ Tina x

  4. Your pictures of the store are absolutely gorgeous. I am looking forward to your giveaway! It sounds lovely! xx

  5. OH! I so wish I lived near you! I love everything you have in your shop...it would be dangerous for me! :) I adore how you put silverware in the milkglass vases and I would take the whole collection of bottles.
    I have no doubt everything will be a big hit and all will love your store ~

  14. Hello Chania,
    Thank you soooo! very much for stopping by my blog.
    The paper hands are done with vintage cast off book pages, from books that know one wanted, so I recycled and reused in art that my daughter could have something to talk about years from now!!

    the back ground is paper gift wrap, paper bags, and tags anything of natural tone, this color works for me.

    I will be keeping my eye's on your site and come by to say hi now and then :)


  15. Everything is looking soooo good!!!

    Can't wait to see the shop!

    I am so excited for you and living vicariously through you for the moment.........

    Maybe some day.........


I love to read each and every comment and are thrilled that you take the time to send one. Thank you so much. Chania
