Tucson Eye Candy



Hi, all my sweet blogging friends!

Wow, it's been awhile!  How has your 2015 been going so far?

My parents, hubby, and I spent a good portion of January in Tucson (just in time to escape the brutal winter that we're having in Ohio!) so I thought I'd share some pics from some of our shopping excursions.

One of the owners from this beautiful shop Grey House Antiques and Home Decor had somehow found my blog and she invited me to come visit when I was in town.  Her shop didn't disappoint!










This place, Copper Country Antiques, was a HUGE antique mall.  These are some of the booths that caught my eye.












I've been wanting to get a really big scale, and this cool one almost came home with me!  While I liked it a lot, it still wasn't exactly what I'm looking for so I decided to hold out for the perfect one.  Hopefully I'll find it soon!




This next place is a phenomenal monthly sale called Gather A Vintage Market.

If you live in the Tucson area, I'd highly recommend it!  Their displays are inspiring!














This shop had some fun things, but I can't recall their name.  (They weren't very nice, either...just being honest!)








This shop, The Lion's Gate, on the other hand had the sweetest and friendliest owner!

Her place was filled with stunning chandeliers and elegant goods.










We hit many other places that I didn't get pictures from, including a fun outdoor flea market,
and we managed to bring back quite a few things from our Tucson shopping trips!

Most of the items will be in our shop (when we reopen in March) but of course I got some goodies to keep, too!
(Maybe I'll share them in another post :)

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of Tucson's eye candy!

Until next time...blessings!

Happy 2015!



Hi, everyone!

Time is going so fast!  I can't believe that the holidays are already almost over!

As I was reflecting on 2014 I realized that for me it was a year of dramatic highs (having my home featured in a national magazine-Vintage Style- was a dream come true and very exciting) and also extreme lows (my mom being diagnosed with colon cancer was devastating and stretched my faith.)




But through it all God was good!  I'm very grateful for my many blessings, including all of the wonderful friendships and support that I've gained through blog land.




I'm going to be taking a bit of a blogging break, but I wanted to wish you all a prosperous, safe, and healthy New Year!!

God Bless you until we meet again! :)

My Shop: Home Sweet Home



Hi, everyone!

My mom and I had a wonderfully blessed holiday season at our shop, Home Sweet Home!

We're closed now until next March for our 'winter break', but I realized that I haven't shown you any pictures of the shop all dressed up for the holidays!
With only a couple of days left until Christmas, I figured I better hurry up and do that!

Most of the items in these photos have sold, but I thought I'd show you anyway.  :)
Enjoy!
















































I hope that you enjoyed a little tour of my shop-thank you so much for stopping by!

I wish you all a very Merry, Blessed Christmas!!  :)

A Few More Holiday Decor Photos



Hi, everyone!

Thank you so much for your prayers for my friends Debbie and Mike!  (If you missed my last post, go here.)  She was very touched by all of your kind comments and grateful for your prayers!
We'd really appreciate your continued prayers!

Well, we're getting down to the wire towards Christmas, so I thought I'd show you just a couple more pics from around my house.
Enjoy!
































Thanks so much for stopping by...take time to enjoy the small things this holiday season! :)
