I guarantee you most certainly will not be disappointed!!!  I stopped in her booth this past summer and must have spent at least a good hour looking at all her SHaBBies!*!*!

 This PeRfeCTLy time-worn Bust was the first to sell...
I pulled this beauty from my personal collection...

 I've had these PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy ViNtaGe Valentine Cupids for about 3 years now...  Although these RARE beauties struck up quite a bit of interest, - they did not sell...
 Soooo glad they came back home with me - they're KEEPERS!!!

 I just loved my Valentine Tree Branch Creation...
  Honestly ~ this pic does not do it justice...  

I netted a few AwEsoMe SHaBBies for myself at show and will share some pics of them later this week...



  1. Shab- a -delique! So happy for you with your success! A new year with lots of sales and finds on the horizon. Blessings sweet Jeanine.

  2. Boy do I wish I lived by you. You have the best treasures.

  3. Glad you had a great weekend! I just love the vignettes you put together and I love how you always use fresh flowers and filler in your items; it just adds so much! And I'm totally in love with all your garden antiques!!
    I'm going to be doing more shows this spring & summer (more on the craft side and not so much antiques) but I put a picture of your booth side-by-side with mine and do my best to copy! ha! Isn't imitation the strongest form of flattery?! ha!

  4. Your chippy furniture is amazing! I too wish I lived closer! Love your cheerful spring touches - here's hoping it comes quickly for you!

  5. A breath of spring! Yippee for the Etsy!

  6. thank you jeanine for the "sweet" sweet basil shout out!!!!!!!!!! i think i purchased almost everything in your pics........ ALL for myself!!!!!!!!!! i couldn't part with any of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! can't wait to see you next month!!!!!

  7. Hi Jeanine,
    Happy New Year to you!
    I'm glad those cherubs didn't sell. Perfect for V-Day. It's hard parting with stuff. I have a hard time myself. It's always a coin toss.
    Great eye candy. Did the dress form sell?

  8. Absolutely adore the shabby, chippy, rusty, details of all of your pieces! Oh, my, I am completely in love with your blog and your newest follower. I'm not nearly as talented as you but enjoy it all. Hope you'll visit sometime. I'm new at this!
