Moving South and Closing My Cottage Chic Shop at the "House at 755"...

Where does the time go...

Once again, it has been forever since I have had the opportunity to update my blog and share with you all of the pretty vintage treasures that I have added to My Whimsical Victorian Chic Cottage shop located at the "House at 755"...

Life has been busy...
My husband and I have finally decided to take the plunge and move south where we can dig our toes in the sand and soak up warm sunshine all year long!  How exciting to finally be able to live by the ocean!

Only one more week and I will be closing down my little shop here in the north at the "House at 755" commonly known as the "White Room"!!!  This is the hardest part about moving.  I have so enjoyed creating and re-inventing vintage treasure for all of my lovely customers!  Thank you to all of you. 

If you live nearby I hope you will have a chance to stop by....a few pretty cottage chic treasures are still available!

Thank you so much for stopping by...Have a wonderful day filled with sunshine in your heart!

New Beach Cottage Chic Treasures...House at 755

My Cottage Chic Space at the "House at 755"

Springtime is just around the corner and I can't wait!  I absolutely love watching the daffodils and tulips bursting forth with color and the trees beginning to bud with the promise of new life!  Springtime is such a beautiful season of renewal that fills my heart with so much joy!

Last time I posted I shared with you some pictures of my home and some of my decorating endeavors!  I finally remembered to bring my camera with me to my little "My Whimsical Victorian Chic Cottage" space located at the "House at 755" so today I have some photos of some of the shabby sweet treasures I have offered for sale!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look...

Wishing you a beautiful love filled week!

Hugs and Kisses!
Dreaming about that quaint little beach cottage with sand beneath my toes and warm sunshine upon my face!

Shabby Sweet and Cottage Chic Bedroom...

Perfect for when my darling little princess granddaughter comes to visit I have created the sweetest Vintage Cottage Chic bedroom for her!  

A wonderful little retreat to curl up with a good book and dream of warm sunshine on my face and sand in my toes!

Wishing you a beautiful day filled with love, happiness and comfort!

Paris Chic Wing Back Chair Makeover...Before and After

Love those street side treasure finds...

For all of you who are as passionate as I am about finding wonderful yesteryear treasures in need of a little renovation and loving care, I thought you would enjoy seeing pictures of my wing back chair makeover!  A true labor of love!

In it's original condition...

After removing at least a million upholstery tacks and the torn leather...

Next I painted the legs white with a little distressing and glaze then began the task of adding new padding and using a beautiful beige linen to re-upholster...

Voila...a new chair accented with this wonderfully chic pillow from "Renovation Hardware"...

Originally, I had planned to sell it at my little store space at "The House at 755" but after all of that work I decided to keep it to accent my guest bedroom...


Simple and inviting...accented with vintage photographs and this fabulous pair of vintage baby shoes that belonged to my grandmother...

and this delightful handcrafted sachet...

with the same theme carried into the guest bath..

Hope you enjoyed this makeover and hoping that I have left you with new ideas and new inspiration for your next yesteryear creative endeavor!

Thank you for stopping by!

A new season and new beginnings...

A new season is upon us bringing new hope, new dreams and yesteryear memories to cherish...

The carefree days of summer have surely come and gone way too fast...the days are shorter and the nights a bit chilly.

As we are drawn back inside,our visions become anew with the comfort of a warm cup of tea sitting by a crackling fire or curling up with a good book in a quiet little nook!

Until my abode can be that pretty little beach cottage I like to retreat to my imagination of days filled with endless sunshine and sand beneath my feet.

Truly a dreamer and hopeless romantic!

My inspiration for creating cherished treasures for my little space at "The House at 755"...

Thank you so much for stopping by...wishing you a day filled with God's beautiful blessings!
