Show and Tell Monday ...
I have two things to show today .... the first is the piece of furniture I had pictured on a post a few weeks ago. I picked this beauty up at an estate sale. I painted and distressed it and it's off to the shop today. I just love the feet and the details at the bottom!


















My business partner and I spent the day in NY yesterday at Accessories The Show. She and I have had a home party business called Flair, for six years. We started our business two years before the home party thing became so common but we are still going strong. We sell handbags, jewelry, wallets, scarves, belts and any other fabulous things we can find. We had a very successful shopping trip yesterday. I wish I had more photos of the wonderful accessories we found. The cute red bag below called the envirosac, an eco friendly bag. It is made of nylon and comes rolled up to take anywhere with you ... grocery store, beach, etc. We bought loads of trendy jewelry, metals are very in. We also found great jewels in deep colors, reds, green, purples. I love the patent leather bags below, the inside is lined in animal print. And yes, animal prints are STILL in after all of these years. The perks to this business are that we often find cool stuff for ourselves. I bought two gorgeous pairs of mules for me ... one is leopard print with peacock feathers on the front with a jewel in the center. The other is black and white gingham with a huge rosette in the same fabric on the toe. I so wish I had a photo of those!!! Thanks for visiting ...

Hi Jennifer,
Better late then never…..the shabby cabinet looks great! Good to hear that you had a successful day in NY @ the show. I went to the LA show a couple of weeks ago and was a little bit disappointed. A lot of the longtime vendors do not show in LA anymore, the place to be is Las Vegas and the attendance was very low, quite scary actually!! Hope you have a wonderful week!
