Farmhouse Style Vignettes

Back last month, at the Chapel Market, where Marian...aka Miss Mustard Seed and I were both vendors, I did a lot of shopping with my longtime blogging friend. As we all know, Marian always has such wonderful items in her booths, so I just couldn't help myself when I arrived and saw all her pretties. Several of the things that I purchased from her, where things that have been on my wish list for quite some time. I have dying to get my new goodies displayed, so today, I made sure to do just that. When most of you are pulling out all your Christmas pretties, I'm playing house with some new farmhouse style décor. I have made a promise to myself this year and I sure hope that I can keep it. The promise is, just because I have a ton of beautiful Christmas décor, that doesn't mean I need to use all of it. So, I hope to cut way back on my Christmas decorating this year and just enjoy the season with my family and friends. In the years past, I have spent way to much time decorating, when I should have been doing more important things. Have you started your Christmas decorating? I am waiting to after Thanksgiving to do mine.

                                                       Farmhouse Style!!!

                                   This square ironstone bowl came from Marian,
                                   but the ironstone pitcher came from my dear
                                   friend Mary from Urban Farmgirl. If you don't
                                   already know Mary...then click here and check
                                   out her amazing shop in Rockford, IL. A trip to
                                                  her shop is on my bucket list.

                                           This cute little mason jar has been around
                                                            for a few years.

                                      The black vintage luggage was recently found
                                               at an out of town flea market and the
                                           doorknobs and platter came from Marian.

                                         I have been looking for one of these for
                                         about two years, and when I spotted this
                                         one, I knew it would be coming home with

                                           I should have taken a side view, so
                                           you could see that it's a pretty shade
                                                                of blue.

                                             Still lovin' my faux boxwood wreath.
                                                       Faux isn't so bad after all.

                                        I can see some of my vintage Shiny Brite
                                        ornaments will replace the silverware for
                                                           a few weeks.

Any ideas on what I should put
here during the holidays?
                                            I recently found this pretty ironstone bowl
                                                         at a local flea market.

                                                 Another item was added to this
                                                 farmhouse vignette today, do
                                                   you know what's new here?

                                           If your guess was this piece, then you
                                                            are, right on!!!

Isn't she a real beauty?
Now, the next time you see these vignette,
it just might look a tad different

Show and Share No. 237

Welcome to another fun Show and Share Party! Here we are in mid November, and it feels like mid January, with all these freezing temps and snow. Even here on the Alabama gulf coast, we are having record low freezing temps. One thing that I really enjoy about living here is, our mild winters and I am afraid, that this year we will not have one of those nice mild winters. Maybe this is just a fluke, and some warmer temps are on their way soon. Looking forward to seeing what you have to share here today, so link up your post and then visit around with your neighbors (we all love to have visitors come by and say hello). Thank you for being a part of my party every week, without you, there would be no party.

Gearing Up For The Holiday Season

The holiday season is fast approaching and if you are in the retail business, you better be ready. So, to make sure that my shop space was ready with lots of holiday items, I spent three days last week filling it up. Yes, three days y'all! Not only did I add a lot of new merchandise, I also added several new display pieces to my space. I am very big into how my displays look, so I am always on the hunt for unique items. You know, it's all about the "WOW" factor. Now, since I have Coastal Charm Interiors ready for the holidays, my next job is to get Coastal Charm (my home) ready. Do you think I can get it done in three days? If you ask Mr.CC, he would laugh in your face and tell you, no way she will pull that off. Okay, maybe four days (he he).

                               WELCOME to COASTAL CHARM!!!!
                                  This rusty old VW Bug car door
                                   is a perfect way to welcome all
                                   my customers to my shop space.

                                Vintage Christmas...ahhhh I love it!

                             We have a good variety of new and old
                                    Christmas ornaments in stock.

                                This old tractor front makes a
                                wonderful display item for CCI.

                                We have a great selection of gift
                                 items for that someone special.

                              We carry new and vintage clothing.

                                Our sweater wraps have been a very
                                 big seller for us and make a wonderful
                                 gift item (most people are buying more
                                                than one at a time).

                             You can find anything from a stocking
                                  stuffer to a neat piece of furniture.

                                     Thanks so much for visiting
                                      Coastal Charm Interiors!!!
