" New Location insade Posies in Arroyo Grande Ca."
Entrance to "Chrisy's Cottage"I 'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. The secret is finally out. I have moved into my 2nd location inside a beautiful 5000 sq. foot shop "Posies" Located in the fabulous village hamlet of Arroyo Grande Ca. Laurie has owned this shop for over 22 years and has now taken on a partner Tamie Miller of Affairs of the Heart. This decorating duo will blow you away. this shop is awesome and they have kindly rented me their back room.I've been having so much fun setting up my new location. A BIG Thank you goes out to Gerry of Arizona Ranch and my sweet Hubbie. The were the muscle that made this set up possible.We are heading back up there on the 3rd on the 5th Dec.4-8 " Elegant Christmas in The Village " begins when Santa arrives and the shop owners dress up serving food and drinks there will be live music and lots of entertainment. Luminaries line the street... I will be there so hope to meet some new customers and friends. AUUUU The Bed.. This is a Queen size iron bed the headboard is taller then me. Sorry but the girls informed me that the spread has all ready sold. I'm bringing new bedding so stay posted. It will have a amazing new look soon!! I did my space in sections bedroom , garden and dinning area. I love the fireplace with frilly stocking hung from the mantel... " Eggplant Chaise I know I normally don't go this dark ' but it went so cute with the pillow." Of coarse I had to bring in some white....Voila!!! Close up of old black trunk I painted and decoupaged with old sheet music. I first sprayed it pink and then antiqued it and gold leafed all the brass. the inside was in a old cloth with tiny little pink rosebud flowers. You can imagine my surprise to find it when I first oped this ugly old black trunk.. a pearl in the ruff..Love love love it!!! and had so much fun doing it knowing it was going to shine in it's new home at " Posies" Romantic Fashions and accessories will be totally stocked up by the 5th of Dec. Pink trees with homemade ornaments and one of a kind crown Antique tree toppers inside urn... Will post many more pics after my next trip up and will get one of the girls and outside of shop..
