sentimental piece at the furniture spa.


my great grandmother was my most admired person. most kids would occupy their time while visiting their great grandmother with some sort of game, coloring, or watching a disney movie while the "adults" visited with one another. none of those things interested me while at my mom b's house. i was the curious kid walking aimlessly aound her house admiring each and every room. i remember the love i had for all of her fireplaces and how i wished my house had more than the one that it did. i can still picture one of her guest bedrooms that had twin beds with the most fabulous matching floral bedding... i can easily fall in love all over again thinking about the fun i had as i entertained myself in her sunroom that was used as her beauty shop. my love for the vintage life started very young. and has (very much so) grown more and more the older i get. some of my favorite things in life are the things i still have of my great grandmothers. i carry her gorgeous sequin purses with pride and i've never changed addresses without taking some (often several things) of her home decor with me. a chair and ottoman recently took a quick trip to my furniture spa and got a little makeover. i eventually want to get both recovered but deciding on a fabric has been rather tough for me on this one. i want the perfect print that brightens my day and reminds me of my mom b. so until that perfectly fitting fabric is found i spruced this little baby up a bit to enjoy until the next makeover.
so here i am today.... sharing the story, the before and the after with you guys. happy saturday.

it's okay to be addicted to a good thing.

it's obvious.

you guys are...

so...

crazy...

in love...

with our lily and laura bracelets.

we can hardly keep them in stock!



what do we love most about that?
every bracelet that you all buy helps improve the quality of life for the women in nepal.

talk about feel good fashion!

:)

each bracelet is hand crocheted by one of the women artists in Nepal using the world's finest quality glass beads.

guess what?
today is your LUCKY day if you love lily and laura like we do.

why?
because we just had a huge delivery come through the door of the confetti crate!



the colors are unbelievable!

they are all over here stealing our hearts right this second...
just in time for valentines day!

these little beauties always seem to quickly find homes so you better hurry in to grab your favorites while they last!

finished this piece last week. it's home {as of right this second} is at mi casa. took a quick picture with the faithful camera on hand (iphone, to be exact) and out the door.... it's been a go-go-go kind of month. there has been alot accomplished.

its just that....

no date for the wedding. no venue. and no idea on the direction that we may take wedding wise. but the good thing is... we are both okay with that. we both know things will fall perfectly into place at just the right time and at the most magical location.
 until then.... i will share with you what's been going on.... tcc style. :)


 
like always, words such as crazy and hectic are rather fitting to things at the store. this chest of drawers was put on the floor and before i could even locate the knobs from the {messy}back of the store (hints the love bunting banner hanging from the top drawers) i had a customer from Mobile, Al. call and admit that she had stalked this piece on instagram and was in high hopes that it did not sale before she made it to Troy. she was in luck...  and snagged this hefty piece up and back to Mobile she they went. And surely.... they will live together happily ever after! :)
and no worries.... the hardware for the top drawers was taken care of before her arrival.
 
 
it is unfortunate that the "loading dock" at the store {aka-the easiest way out-any door works just whatever makes the most sense} doesn't have the surroundings for a decent "after" photo. it is also unfortunate that my time and muscles are limited to keep me from arranging better pictures to share.
 
but the most fortunate thing ever is the opporunity after opportunity i get to work with others and their furniture, their home decor and ideas galore. it's an amazing feeling when someone puts their trust in my work. its something i truly love. and feel extremely blessed to do on a daily basis. God is so good. :)
 
 
 
 
that's all she wrote tonight, love birds.
