SHaBBy Sightings ~ BOULDER CITY, NEVADA...


A "BitterSweet" Trip...
For those of you who don't know, I spent a good part of my life living
 *Out-West*...  One of the towns I lived in was Boulder City, Nevada...
   Prompted by the recent death of My Dear Sweet Cousin Amy Arnaz,
 ~who was like a Big Sister to Me,  I made the trek back to B.C.
 for her *P*I*N*K BALLOON "Send-Off" Ceremony...


Boulder City, Nevada
 has sooooo many Antique & SHaBBy Shops!!!
HOW INVITING IS THIS?!?!?
THE WHITE PORCH
A new SHaBBy-SHoP that has opened
since my last visit to Boulder City...
This Shop is a bit off the beaten path,
BUT WELL WORTH FINDING IT!!! 
A good mix of naturally time worn chippy old painted vintage
A*N*D more recently painted SHaBBies...
Their FaceBook Page does not do this store justice!!!



It was BEYOND WONDERFUL
to *SEE* Fresh Spring Flowers & Green Grass!*!*!
This time~worn ViNtaGe Seeder was "an alley find"
NOW Re-Purposed as a Planter, on my friend Sandra's Porch...

Wonderful SHaBBy Iron Garden Table...
Sooooo many of my friends decorate in the
 SHABBY-COTTAGE STYLE!!!

  4. Miss Amy was one amazing person. I was so saddened to hear of her passing. Please accept my sincere sympathies.

    I lived in Boulder City, but sadly moved to Florida a few years ago. My heart is still in my beautiful town in the desert. Miss it like crazy. They have some awesome shops there. Looking forward to my next visit.
