I'm BACK!!

Yes I know its been a long time!  But I have a good reason!!  I have moved to North Carolina..YEP this So. Cal beach girl is now a Southern farm girl.  It's been an exciting year for me.  I promise I will have lots of photos of our new ranch/farm.  But for now I just wanted to get a few words up on the blog to welcome my new friends.  You see, I've open up a booth space at The Antique Market Place in Greensboro North Carolina.  I hope you will follow me as I share my farm life, my decorating adventures and my booth space!  Here is a peak at my new barn:

 I can hardly wait to have my own barn sale here.  This has always been a dream of mine. 
I hope you get a chance to come visit me at The Antique Market Place. This is where I keep the booth stocked full of European and American farmhouse finds. 
Stop by The Antique Market Place and ask for dealer "CHAT" booth.  I will be posting most of my photos on my Facebook page at Chateau et Jardin.  If you get a chance please stop by and "Like" my page.  Also I love Pinterest and have a special board for The Antique Market Place Here.  Feel free to share my pins and browse my boards.

Thanks everyone have a beautiful week...Kathee

American Home & Garden ~Vintage Spring

Well I don't know about you, but feels like Spring is FAST approaching!  Some of our weather lately feels like Summer getting well up into the high 80's.  I just changed my booth space 3 weeks ago, as well as all the other dealers at American Home...we have been selling and replenishing like crazy.  Sometimes as fast as I take the photos...complete vignettes disappear!  :)  
We are excited about all the changes we have made, and the customers are loving the new cash wrap area. 
Here are some new vignettes I snapped around the store~starting to see some vintage Spring here at American Home...
So as you can see we have been very busy getting ready for Spring...come on in for a visit...before it gets to be Summer :)  We hope you enjoyed the tour!  As always give the store a call if you find something you gotta have (wink wink).
