White Wednesday " Mixing it Up "

Hi Girlie's I'm mixing it up at the Store and it's been quite fun

I shared with Sue that I was setting higher goals in # 31

so hubs challenged me, HMMMM this girl loves a challenge





first up an old tea cart that was in need of a makeover

and so with that said she arrived this morning at

Country Roads all dressed in white with some shabbiness





for an old gal her casters were in great shape

she looked quite spiffy rolling into my space





next up my chippy diva that resides in my casa

yes she is a KEEPER for sure




new lamps added this week




TA DA mixing it up





 

Loving the boldness of the black against my burlap walls









Please join our lovely hostess

Kathleen  for the White Wednesday goodness

blessings to you

I wanted to let you know I just got through spending about an hour looking through your blog. It is beautiful. I also really like your booth space. I also have a booth here in Alabama and I truly love it. I understand what you mean when you say the lupus and the cancer can't reach you there. I have retreated many times to "work" in my booth. I should really call it therapy.

You have been burdened with more than most people but your positive attitude and your faith in God will be your best medicine. Along with the obvious love of your family.

With great joy that I found your blog.

Okay Ms. Kate, what I want to know is what is sitting in the middle of your living room to replace the little cart?

I'm sure it must be VEEERY PREEETY!

Big Hug!!!

Preppy Mama said...

Wow, it looks gorgeous! I wish I lived closer because I sure would be paying you a visit!! Love it all!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sue said...

Your little space always looks so awesome after you've been there working on it. Then within what seems like minutes, it is stripped naked! But that is a good thing in retail, right?

Take care, Sue

Hello Kate - It's my first time joining White Wed and so glad to find your blog. I love, love, love it, and just went back all the way to your May post looking for the name of your store. At one point I saw your business cards, but cannot read exactly where in Cali you are. I live in San Diego and love shopping flea markets too...would love to visit your shop sometime. Oh yeah, I'm your newest follower too :)

Hello!!
I just wanted to say thank you so so much for my wonderful gift!!! I was thrilled when I opened the sweet little package!!! I love Starbucks Tea and have been doing without so this is a treat for me!!! And when I opened the tea towel..I swooned..I love love love birds and this is so me!! You could not have picked a more perfect gift for me!!! I plan to use it as a curtain in my tiny kitchen window!!!
Okay enough about me....I cannot believe you have a college aged son!!! I thought you were in your 20's!!! Must be all of that good living in Cali!!!
And last but not least..how is your sweet Mama doing??? Give her some shugar from a kooky lady in Oklahoma!!! She is in our prayers!!
Have a Blessed Day!!
(I'm loving the new goodies in the shop))

I just love your booth so much Kate! It is just so chic, love ,love,love it! I have a table kind of like the one your keeping in my barn waiting for some shabbiness to happen to it. I gotta have the humidity go down first though, I don't think the paint would even stick to it right now! Yours is definitely the way I want mine to look. Thanks for sharing all the pretty with us,Theresa

cindy said...

Oh such gorgeousness....love how you put stuff together Kate. Wish I could shop there~I'd buy you out!

Six in One Hand said...

I am loving your booth!!!
As a fan of black, I definitely love the look of the black on burlap.

Chateau Chic Boutique said...

I definitely love the black. I always have to incorporate it somehow. Your space is so nice! The obelisk is my fav I think. I need to get back down there soon.

Have a super weekend. Can't wait to see what you post next!

Blessings,
Missy

The Primitique said...

I love that lamp. A lot. Everything looks wonderful Kate! ~Mindy

Chateau Chic Boutique said...

Hey again! Just got your comment, thank you. Sounds great! So funny because my dear friend Margaret and I were just talking about you tonight and how we would love to meet you down there sometime.
I spent some more time this afternoon reading your older posts and cried and laughed so much! I truly admire your perseverance and love for your family. You certainly are dealing with a lot but it's clear that your priorities are in order - Jesus is bigger than all that stuff. Psalm 55:22, 1 Peter 5:7.

Have a super blessed weekend!
Missy

Hi Kate! Your space is simply stunning! I am loving all the white chippy pieces, especially that chippy diva. I would have snatched her up and taken her home too!

Your booth looks great! I particularly love the burlap ribbon and sparkly brooch detail where you've tied it onto that obelisk. It's all in the details!
