American Home & Garden~MY FIRST GIVE AWAY~ WelcomeThe Old Painted Cottage Friends~

Hello all and Welcome!  I have so much to share with you today...I'm so excited to announce that my dear friend Jennifer from The Old Painted Cottage is helping me host a give away!  My first give away!  I ran into Jennifer a couple of weeks ago, when she was shopping at American Home & Garden (best kept secret in Ventura).  Jen purchased a couple of bus stop scrolls from me..while I'm not at liberty to share with you her BIG news, I will say....the news is worth celebrating!  So I'm celebrating my 2 month anniversary at American Home & Garden along with Jen's BIG news by doing my FIRST give away.  I'm giving away a bus stop scroll and a 50$ gift certificate to American Home & Garden! (to be used at ANY booth not just mine)
I wanted to share with you how beautiful our window turned out using these bus stop scrolls.  I have 3 different scrolls, one from New York, one from Paris, and another from London.  If you would like to purchase one they are $85.00 each. (I can ship them also for an additional $15)
Don't they look amazing??  We decided on a bus stop theme.  That awesome bench in the back ground just arrived the other day.  (the bench is from Hungary) There is also some gorgeous pillows made from the real bus scrolls by my friend Carmella.  
 A new shipment of grain sacks, dough bowls and French Demi Johns have arrived....and wait til you see the amazing selection of vintage suitcases!
 This beautiful buffet hutch just arrived also...along with a ton of ironstone...
 Even though it's winter outside, it is never too early to find amazing garden pieces at American Home & Garden.  We have lots of garden urns, benches, statuary, rusty sconces and chandeliers.
 More Carmella pillows and can you see that beautiful French iron bed in the background?  It is that French Green that we all love!
Dealers are bringing in new items daily ....here are some Ralph Lauren Inspired black leather chairs...

    A big "Thank you" to you and Jennifer at "The Painted Cottage" for all the great inspiration!!
