As I go about the house, cleaning closets, donating or tossing things
that I no longer need or want, I think about how I want to decorate the home,
the home that we are planning to build, the downsized home.
I want a lighter feel for the house as it will be smaller. 1,500 square feet smaller.
It seems like I have been gravitating to a simpler style of furnishings.
While visiting my friend JoAnn in St. Simon’s Island, she took me to a great shop.
Another favorite shop, that I will add to my growing list.
As soon as I entered the shop, I felt a sense of calm . . .
a feeling I definitely am going for.
If you recall my pagoda style lantern . . .
I purchased it from this shop, SeaSide Home on St. Simon’s Island
. . . right from this table:
I love this table and the scalloped edges.
I was told that many of the pieces that I loved was manufactured by Gabby.
I am really loving the European Farmhouse feel of these pieces.
Isn’t it always the case that when you take a photo of something,
you notice things that you missed. Yes, spying some things that I don’t recall seeing!
Like some pretties on the above table
and the console against the wall.
Both JoAnn and I are working on plans on building a downsized home.
She plans to build in the same area of St. Simon’s Island and
loves the furnishings and accessories of this shop as I do.
Hey, maybe we could get a group discount?!!!
I must say that on my “wish list” for the “future home” is a new bedroom set
from the amazing line of Eloquence. Cue the sighs!
I was shopping that day only having my iPhone to take pics
and I thought I took more …. like a pic of a great Mora clock that was in the shop.
Next time! . . . . . . Book my reservation JoAnn!
And now my treasured readers . . . . . I want to announce the winner
of the book “Paris in Bloom”
Can you imagine cruising the streets of Paris on this bicycle with the gorgeous flowers?
