Love, Loss & New Treasures




After a lengthy break, I am finally ready to get back to the web site again! It's been a funny fall for me full of love, fun and heartbreak. If you read a few posts below, you will know that I lost my little furry friend this fall and it's been so hard getting over him...not that I ever will, but just the same. Thanks to all of you who wrote to me about Bobo and especially a big hug to Bonnie T. for your lovely email! Thanks Bonnie! You made me feel somewhat better at time that I was feeling pretty down! (*_*)

In between all of this, my Mom was here for two whole months this fall and we had such an amazing time! We have so much fun together and I am so blessed that she is able to come down here and spend so much time with me. She even extended her vacation by one week as we felt that we were running out of time! I am so lucky that I have such a terrific Mom and a Mom that really "gets" me! Isn't that what we all really want?, someone who "gets" us! (*_*)

So now I'm back at it. I've spent the past few days taking pictures and managed to get some new things listed in the Cottage Treasures Boutique. Pictures of a few of those things are above. Don't you just love that gorgeous tole tray and that needlepoint...it is so beautiful in person!

I have wanted to add some new categories to the site for some time and I am now working on pictures and listing for the new French Finery Boutique. It is going to be amazing with some of the best glitzy, glamorous and just downright pretty stuff! You'll be getting a message soon if you are on the mailing list (and if you're not, why not?! LOL!) as to when they will be listed. They should be done here in the next three or four days.

I'm also adding another new category to the site called "Sweet Treats" and it will be full of my little faux cupcake confections and other "sweet" things. I'm really looking forward to getting this category going. I think you are going to love it!

I hope you had a lovely fall and are looking forward to the holiday season like I am. I am so excited about Christmas this year for some reason! Do feel free to drop me an email at any time if you have a question, comment or just want to say hi! I always love hearing from you! ~Stacy~ xo

Hi Stacy, so glad you had fun with Mom. My Mom gets me, but not my love of vintage, crafting, blogging, etc. I cannot wait to see your new categories, they sound wonderful

Hi Stacy! I remember you from my obsessive ebay buying days. ha-ha! I have no idea if you'll remember but I bought a beautiful vintage oval framed (painted white of course!)medicine cabinet from you back then. I still have it in my bathroom and I still LOVE it! I'll always remember how well it was packed (by your Husband if I remember correctly). I'm sure I bought more from you but the mirror is the most memorable.
I linked over from "Old French Doors" and so glad I did! I look forward to following.
Blessings to you!
