Today I am participating in Metamorphasis Monday hosted by Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch! Check out her blog! It is absolutely fab!
Saturday I had the pleasure in spending the day with my favorite friend and self adopted sister Robin! She and I have a ball shopping, gossiping and eating! Did I mention eating? (Ok, in her defense it was really me doing the majority of eating!) We ventured about 2 1/2 hours south to Lake Alfred to visit The Barn. We had so much fun meandering through each different section of The Barn. I could hardly control myself in The Stable! All the home decor was overwhelming! I could have stayed all day combing through the different displays. We got a lot of ideas for decorating and Robin was coming up with the most genius ideas for my kitchen. Hopefully one day these ideas with come to life and I will be able to share with you!
The creme de la creme came when we entered the Holiday Barn!!! Ooh's and Ahh's were coming from every direction! I wish I had taken pics of all the beautiful trees, ornaments, garland, and so much more. Although Robin did not partake in the retail therapy at the Barn, I sure did! I grabbed up some great garlands that I could use on tassels, jars or tablescapes! I also got some sparkly bling for my chandelier. Which leads me to my contribution for Metamorphasis Monday.
Here is the before of my chandy. Not too bad?
And the after! Bling makes me happy! I love that I can choose to sparkle one day and be plain the next!
I am working on new shades to perk the chandy up just a little more! I can't tell you how thankful I am for my friend Robin! I hope you enjoyed my shopping weekend as much as I did!
