Everything shabby, rusty and wonderful....

"It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful..."

White chippy paint, rusty metals and faded barkcloth... Oh! the glories of the decorating world...if you are into it anyway!!...Old furniture and architectural pieces waiting for a Shabby Lover to rescue them and give them a new home...our mission in Life!! (well, someone has to do it, right?). But, believe it or not, no everyone thinks this way. Check out these three funny comments:

"Oh, Taylor! You work so hard....I know one of these days you will be able to buy "adult furniture"..."
Comment by Taylor's friend, (an Ethan Allen fan) when she entered Taylor's glamorous shabby chic family room.

"Please tell me we didn't pay for that!"
Comment by Dario, Clara's husband, every time she brings home something "weathered to perfection"

"I just want to tell you, before we go in, that we are not poor...It's just that my Mom likes old stuff!!"
My Daughter Camila to a friend before the girl entered our home for the first time.

If you are reading this post, chances are that you are a shabby-rusty-vintage-cottage-freak just like us, and we love you for that!!! Cheers!!
