Shelly's Place Part One


You are in for a treat. I said I would do some posts just to show you all the visual treats at Shelly's house and here is part one. Shelly is the sister in law of Patty at Lemon Lane Cottage. They are all just the best. So thankful we have become friends. Okay on to the tour. This is just the kitchen folks. There is so much to look at here that it takes time to take it all in. Now this gal is a collector but let me tell you she is thrifty. So many of the cute things you see are from yard sales and thrift shops. We all want to go shopping with her to find her good places and glean some of her collecting skills.
Okay on with the fun. It was getting dark so some of my photos aren't the best.
This cherry valance she found at the thrift store. Can you believe that?


She already collects in red so adding Christmas is perfect.





She finds things and paints and modifies them to her colors. Her husband also helps her create some of her shelves and is very handy so she is one lucky gal.



Her attention to detail is fabulous. I wish you could all see it in person. So fun.


We think she needs a blog so she can share her place all year long. It is as cute decorated for everyday too.








Her Christmas tree in the kitchen. Next time I will share the sitting area and dining room. Isn't her place fun? Thanks Shelly for generously sharing your home with us and for letting me take so many shots and share it on my blog.

Adorable....even though she has the red kitchen, it has to take a while to get out all those darling decorations. It reminds me of the 50's....Enjoying the tour!
