The one where if you don't see it, it doesn't necessarily mean it sold

I'm loving the way my shop looks right now, especially my mantle display, I hate to change it.
Ok I admit it's been a while (and a fun summer so far) but usually I move the store around quite frequently. I like to give things a new showcase so a piece someone might not have noticed over there, they see over here and fall in love with it. Plus, I feel antsy if things are stagnant here. There are usually a few leftover pieces that have no home. Most of the time they go in the back room. Sometimes they come home with me, and I get to enjoy them for a while. In case you were wondering, here are some things I currently make good use of:

This French desk got so much attention, but alas, no buyers yet, so it's perfect as my craft station for a while.One of my very favorite things, this crock shelf diplays my collections quite nicely, I'm willing to let it go to a good home.
And possibly next, this fabulous English mahogany desk from the mid 1800's. I feel very protective of my finds, I loved them enough to buy them and hope you would love them too. When they don't get any attention I think I feel like I need to take them and give them a good home with me for a while :)

And perhaps this iron base/marble top small console table...better hurry!
Heres a peek at the beautiful trestle table that lasted exactly one week before someone very smart snatched it up.

I'm dedicating this weekend to renew the shop. Let's all hope it's not too beautiful outside or the hammock will be calling my name. I feel guilty if I don't work, and equally guilty if I don't play...

Hope you sell it all so that you can come to Texas and buy what we're bringing to the Fall Show. See you soon, T

Colleen ~ your shop must be a dream to browse! I'd be taking all that home with me too if it were in a shop I owned.
