We have one last great Giveaway for Valentines Day and I will announce a random.org winner this Friday and send these off in a priority envelope. Just leave a comment here to be entered to WIN our Love Mail Scraps, Cherish Clear Art Stamps, Romance Cotton Scraps and Vintage Love Cuts!
I am so in love with our new Heart to Heart Digital Art Stamp Set I gave away in yesterdays draw I'm going to play today and create something cool. It's the size of the collage hearts that are making my heart go pitter-pat - there are 5 and they are 5" tall!
Also, scroll down to see my visit to my favorite decorating store Chintz and Company!
Every year I try and do a photo post on a visit to my favorite decorating store Chintz and Company. If I could win a gift certificate anywhere it would be to this store! Tell me what store you would pick? Yes, some of the furniture and big ticket items are pricey and over my budget but they have 2 floors in their Vancouver store packed full of everything from you can imagine and there many small items from bath soaps and lotions, botanicals, cards, fabric, gift wrap, jewelry and gorgeous decor and gift ideas.
Too bad this chain is just in Western Canada - but if you ever need a bit of inspiration and love looking at decorating displays in themes this store is a feast for the imagination as they group their furniture, pillows, wall art, glassware, picture frames, lamps, etc all together with such style! Check out the funky stool!
This year the biggest change I noticed was there was so much color! Vivid, happy and wacky fun colors in flowers and patterns on fabric, dishware and more.
I love the contrast in this stunning plate.
There was an array of beautiful fabric art from stunning pillows, canvas pieces, place mats, linens and more.
These pillows reminded me of what you can create with images on our CD 2, Creating with Illustrations like pretty bird pillow DT Leader Vicki Chrisman made.
I don't have much blue in my home but I adore this pretty blue shabby chic grouping
I have 2 friends who have decorated their houses in whites and I'm jealous because I love how you can change the entire mood with splashes of color. Still...I'm scared of getting things dirty but a bit of bleach and it's all new again. Look at this pretty bedroom
They have the most stunning artificial flowers and plants and I always have to buy something, even if it's a single flower or a little plant for a teacup gift.
Fake plants are way nicer than they use to be.
Here's my kitchen window sill and yes - I do fake - because I can't kill them and they never out grow the tea cups or pots I put them in!
all divided into color groupings.
Plus, a wall of the most stunning trims
Items piled floor to ceiling in such an eclectic assortment
On the way out I snapped this photo of one of the jewelry cases as I noticed even it was full of color. Now the purse may be a little over the top, even for me. Mind you with a little black dress and one of the necklaces I bet it would be stunning!
So tell me your favorite decorating store if you didn't have a budget to follow? If I'm in the USA I love going to Home Goods, which is like HomeSense in Canada because their prices fit my budget and they have such a selection, but Chintz and Co. makes my heart flutter and a girl can dream right?
Here is a link to my 2012 post at the Chintz Store in Victoria BC Store and Valentine samples, plus Chintz store visit in 2010 but I can't find the 2011 Vancouver post.
Also, see the great Men cards Vicki made with our Barbershop Kit and Mustache Men Digital Art Stamp Set!
