Shabby Sheik??
I rarely go to yard sales, due to the fact that I am at the shop on Saturday mornings. But this past weekend I switched shifts with another woman. I couldn't believe it, my first Saturday morning off and of course it was pouring out. But, I threw on my yellow slicker and picked up my friend Donna, and we went to one sale that was listed in the paper as a shabby sheik sale. I knew this woman probably called the ad in, and the paper had no clue what shabby chic was. I recognized the street address from a check that this woman had purchased some shabby chic items with. This was no ordinary woman. Christine Glynn or was in two featured articles in Romantic Country Magazine. My friend Donna and I spent two hours at Christine's house, as she showed us her beautiful home and garden. What a wonderful way to spend a rainy morning. If you have a chance, take a look at, it's wonderful and inspiring.
What a small world we live in. This weekend I went to a baby shower for my husband's cousin's wife. The shower was in West Roxbury, and there must have been 50 women there. I look across the room and I notice a woman who comes into the shop and buys lovely rose china. I approached her, introduced myself, and asked how she knew the mother to be. She told me that she was a good friend of my mother-in-law Mounira, who passed away a few years ago, and her sister Rose, who also passed away last year. We both couldn't believe it. I can't wait to see her again in the shop so we can reminisce about these lovely women.
