Moving on.


Ive decided to delete my previous post because I didn't like the way it made me feel.

I want my blog to be a place of peace, serenity and inspiration not a place to gripe or complain.

Even though I feel I'm entitled to and have many
storys to tell I'm not....... I'm going to let it go.

If you have any questions email me directly and we can talk.

smiles,

Sandy

Good News!!!


Well Its November 1st so you no what that means!!!

No im not talking election day, turkey day, silver bella or any other big event coming this month..

Novemeber 1 st means its..........

New Jewel of the month time!!!!!

Now..... Thats what im talkin about! :)


And is this a good one that I have for your daily dose of inspiration!!!
Our November Jewel of the month comes to us from the land down under in
Australia!
It is Mandii’s beautiful Shabby home.
Mandii said when they bought their modern fa├žade home 7 years ago it it likewise started out inside with modern interiors, but boy has it changed!
People say that when they walk into their house its not what they expected. Its more warm and cozy which is the look she is going for.
Mandii describes her style as Shabby Old meets Shabby New!
She loves old pieces of furniture that are marked and dented with peeling paint, each piece has its own story to tell.

She started making over chairs into shabby style and since she wasn’t into that style of decorating she would sell them on ebay without a hitch since she didn’t really like them.
Then her designs evolved and she started making over lamps and lampshades and then onto bigger furniture.
She was also one of the first aussie gals to make Shabby faux cakes etc, they look so wonderful on display without any temptation at all!!
Mandii sells items on eBay every week.
Her eBay user name is- Shabby_Vintage_dreams


She describes herself as just an average everyday stay at home mum with a 4 year old and one baking at the moment, who started her Shabby career while maintaining a home and a family.
Check out her home as featured for the Jewel of the month on my website then check out her ebay site but don’t buy anything I want…hee hee…

Im also going to be listing loads of treasures either monday or tuesday if all goes as planned!

so stay tuned.....

same bat channel...

hugs and smiles,

Sandy
