Drapery Install Day

This morning I did a drapery install that has been in the works for almost a year. We had to
wait for the renovations to be done. This is the last doctors house at the old Western State
Hospital that is now called The Villages. The panels were made for the living room and the
dining room. My client loves florals and bright colors. We chose this print from Duralee fabrics
called Kingsmill in Colonial. The drapes transformed these large windows adding color and
warmth to the rooms. More to come on this project.

Shopping Local

This past week i made some purchases at a couple of local businesses.
I found theses Limoge plates at the consignment shop in Waynesboro,
Twice As Nice.

And this cake plate by Royal Kent, England.
I have listed them on Ebay and they will go in my antique space when I have room.
I also have had some luck finding good pieces on Facebook Marketplace, where local
people sell there stuff, so I picked up these two mirrors for a steal.

Oval frame for a mirror.

This beautiful Trudeau Mirror. I have them listed on Ebay as they are, but will later fix them
up and get mirrors for them to put in my spaces. You can find some really good deals if you
shop local.

Welcome January

While I had a week off from work, I went by The Staunton Antique Center to check on my space
and take some pictures. It helps me see what has sold, how my space looks and find the things that
I have listed on Ebay that may have sold.

It might be a good time for some tweeking, I could go by and clean it up a little bit.
After Christmas, I meet my siblings in Charlottesville for lunch at Travinia. After lunch
some of us wanted to do a little shopping so we went to Leftover Luxuries. My mom
bought some jewelry and my sister and I bought paintings. Below are pictures of my painting.

I had seen it this summer and now it is 50% off the price, so I splurged. This past
Sunday we went back to Charlottesville for diner on the downtown mall to Fitzroys,
it was delicious. Before dinner, I went down early for a little shopping, here is what I found
at Stein Mart.

I fell in love with this jacket and I am in need of some new pillow cases. I prefer 700 thread count.
I needed a new pair of tennis shoes with more support, I found these at DSW on sale.
These pretty earrings came from a store on the downtown mall named O' Suzannah.
Okay, no more spending for a while. My next big project is my dining room and I have
several clients with projects that I am getting back to in the next several months.
