Shabby Chic!

So today we all headed out to the mall to spend Christmas money & giftcards. We have a signature Shabby Chic boutique that opened here in Atlanta just a few weeks ago!!!
Oh happy day!
I think I could have just sat there & soaked it all in for quite a long time
( they even had corinne bailey ray playing)....life is good!
Enjoy some eye candy....sorry these all turned out so goldy yellow









After a run to Anthropologie to spend my giftcard ( that sweet man!), a quick ride on Macy's Pink Pig, way too many other shops , & a yummy lunch at Crescent Moon-we called it a day!
A great day with everyone.


I told my sweetie that I felt this had been an all around wonderful Christmas season. Even though things were a little busy with all the ballet everything really fell miraculously into place. No one was sick, no goofy family crisis, a great Christmas Eve program at our church & just several super events together as a family. We don't spend ( nor do we have ) loads & loads of money at Christmas. Santa just fills the stockings & we try to get each of the girls a "wow" gift ( wow to them anyway) and few other goodies that they've asked for. I felt like they were all really happy with their treasures.

We are blessed & I don't take any of those blessings for granted.

~~Happy New Year~~

Paige! What a FAB store...I have to look and see if I have one around or near Sacramento! Those were lovely photos! But I have to ask...what is 'the pink pig?' and has your littest one grown another 2 inches...she looks a bit taller in that last photo! Amazing how they grow over night almost. My darling nephews and niece are sprouting like beans! Paige dear wishing you and your beautiful family a blessed New Year! HUGS!

Hello Paige,
I just found your blog thru Home Daisy/Cottage Bethy(?). I saw on your profile where you lived and it turns out that we go to the same church and know at least one mutual person. I emailed my friend and asked if she thought your name was familiar and she said that you lived in the same n'hood as her mom.
Small world, huh?
Thanks for sharing about the Shabby Chic store. Oh, I used to live right around the corner from you, near Gwin Oaks, but now am in Dacula.
Happy New Year!

Yay, glad to hear you were able to browse through one of my fav shops, Shabby Chic. I have been to the shop in Chicago and to the Malibu shop that is a 20-30 minute drive from my home. When I step in the door, my blood pressure goes down, I'm sure of it! Yet, my heart races with all the ideas, new products. . . .my heart is racing just talking about it!

Found you blog from Restyled Home. Hope you stop by my blog/website to say hello! Cindy
