Our Baby is a Star!!!

We call all our furniture finds our babies. We know where each piece was picked up,how much we bought it for, where we displayed it, and who bought it. This piece in particular was bought by a memorable customer. One day this customer walks in with a few friends. We knew she was a serious buyer. She knew exactly what she was buying..... She picked out a few pillows and our cute little Burnt Red Color Settee. This settee was came in from an auction. At one point we had the intentions of recovering the worn and torn fabric , but all in all it was a great piece with great curves. The customer that bought it owns a store in Santa Monica called Bountiful . It is a darling store that you MUST visit when you go to Los Angeles.

When we drove by we couldnt find a store sign but realized the CUTEST iron and scrolly things pouring out of it had to be Bountiful .Not to mention the pink cake pedastals piled high in the window.We had to stop and check it out. This darling store was decorated by an abundance of lighting, mirrors, accessories, then a little door that entered into the back where all the magic was...and of course our little red settee peaking out from storage in the back.

This pink settee of course gave me hot flashes...

This pillow was bought from our store...haha

We mentioned to the owner, Sue Balmforth, that she had visited our store a few months back and bought the red settee from us. She remembered and said it had just been returned back from a movie set 15 minutes earlier and Johnny Depp had been sitting on it in a scene from his upcoming movie. Lisa and I tried to keep cool but of course we were super "cited".. Love Love Love that....Definately check out this store. Fabulous items and super sweet staff and store owner!!!!

We drove by this....Loved the name!

Couldnt pass up Rachel Ashwell's store Shabby Chic...Here is the inspiration board in the store....LOVE LOVE LOVE

We also went through the Los Angeles Gift and Home Market Show. Of course shabby, rusty, iron, and oversized items caught our eyes first. The reps for Eloquence were so sweet and said they new of "Urban Farmhouse" for the pink cowboy boots posted on our facebook page months ago. I'm always so shocked that people actually know of us.
We feel so important and loved ! Thank you :)
