News from The Treasured Home

Ho, ho, ho! Debbie, Patti and I spent the day tagging Christmas ornaments for the shop. It felt like there were about 5000 of them! By the time this photo was taken, I was ready to call it a day! A bird in the hair is worth two in the bush! Yes, I love this…

Latest Projects & Finds!

Hello there! Now that I’m back in the “thick of it” at the shop, blogging isn’t nearly as consistent as I ‘d like it to be. There are just not enough hours in a day! And the shop seems to magnify all my ADD tendencies. Talk about distractions! Well, enough about all that! Here’s the…

Need a vanity, darling?

Have you ever sat at a vanity, to put on your war paint? I think my mom used to say she was “putting on her face”! Like there wasn’t a face there before! It seems like all the movie stars used to sit at their vanity, brushing their thick, wavy hair. Or, applying their red…

Chalk Painted Buffet Gets Glazed

Hello, dear friend!, You may recall that a few weeks ago,a customer at the shop was downsizing. She brought a wonderful buffet to the shop, and it has slowly made a change for the better! Here she is after just a quick topcoat, to test a color. The rest of her is wearing a blond…

More European Treasures!

I had so much fun on my last buying trip and got such positive customer feedback, that we loaded up the “Burb” again this morning. Mr. Wonderful has three beautiful bottles tucked into the backseat, using seat belts and straps, to keep the kids in place! I told Bob it’s like having three kids in…
