My store kitty, Jeffrey is the best. i bought him this kitty size Santa hat and beard and i got this one pic but then He posed for this Christmas picture inside this silver Christmas wreath. it was just there sitting inside the store window- and there he was, just looking cute inside it. He always gives us the best pics :-) He's a kitty model and He's just the most awesome kitty I have ever had. So glad he is in my life.

A Princess Bedroom For Hanna in Florida Shabby Chic

This is a bedroom that i designed. i made almost everything you see including all the furniture, bedding, curtains, Ice cream parlor table and chairs and chaise lounge. I was contacted by Hanna's mom to create for her, a dream princess bedroom for her christmas present. Her mom found me on the website www.houzz.com . and on etsy.com . All the painted distressed furniture are my creations. They include a canopy bed, vanity and chair, dresser, all white distressed. the antique display cabinet was painted a blush pink and I added glass shelves and a light. The side table by the chaise was an antique plant stand that i shortened and painted a pretty lavender. The vintage chaise lounge was covered in vintage chenille bedspreads with pretty floral fabrics. I transformed a vintage ice cream parlor bistro set by painting the metal in a lavender the top in a white and made lovely cushions with lavender fringe trim and long bows- so pretty! I made the curtains with a blush pink opaque fabric including all the canopy bed curtains, huge bow ties and bed skirt. The curtain toppers are the white shabby floral fabric with vintage lavender pom pom trim. Here are a bunch of pics, some when the pieces were in my shop, some when the room was being set up, and finally when her mom finished added all the final touches. hope you enjoy. Please contact me to create your dream room. www.vintagechicfurniture.com happy holidays, hugs, donna :-)
