Etsy Store Just Opened

We are now officially a part of Etsy.   We have more pieces that aren't on there yet, so we will be adding more of our Vintage Chick jewelry,  ASAP.   We hope you'll check it out.   You can go directly to our Etsy store from the blog by clicking on the Etsy sight to the right

Our T-shirts are ready to be printed, so very soon we have those online too-  yeah!  We are starting with one style and will add more as the funds become available- I hate that part:)

We did find some fun tanks and t's that we will have on line soon too.

Did someone say shopping?  We are so so sad that we can't go to Round-
Top again this year, but we are going on a quick road trip to hopefully find some fun, fabulous, and shabby things to sell.

We have already found  some great things for the next Good Ju Ju sale in April and  the much anticipated Miss Frenchies sale April 17th and 18th.  Check out our chick happenings for more info.  The picture is just a few of the items we are saving for this sale!

To end with a quote from the wonderful word of  God,  And how often to we truly take the time to do this....."Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God"   Job 37:14

Blessings until next time from the Three Shabby Chicks,  Robin, Niki, and Marlo

Fabulous Shabby Frames

Wow,  so glad to finally be able to get back to our blog-  We have had a crazy few weeks, and we wish it would have been because we were hunting and gathering more fabulous finds.  Sometimes life, meaning family and friends has to come first.   We know all of you can relate.   

I am attempting to get my home transformed from winter to spring-  yes!  Don't you just LOVE putting the feel of spring in your home.  We are so ready for warmer weather,  fresh flowers,  green grass and outdoor flea markets!

I am still not quite done transforming my home for spring, but I did get inspired to share some ideas for those wonderful old frames besides adding  photos or a  mirror.   Finding a fabulous shabby frame is like finding gold to me,  I love them and have a stack of them in my workroom, that I just can't rid of, but know they will find a place one day

                                                      All of the pictures are from my (Robin's)  home.
I will change the display around the frames according to the season.  For instance, using an old floral platter in the center for spring and summer and a white ironstone platter for fall and winter.   Or,  I LOVE setting a frame on a table or chest and letting it lean against the wall.  You can place a wonderful sconce or smaller print inside, or just leave it empty and place your displays in front, using more gold or darker colors around the frame for fall and winter and more whites and pastels for spring,  blues and ironstone filled with shells for summer.  For my daughters room, she wanted a more glamorous feel, so we still have the antique pieces painted cream, but used black accents.  I purchased the vinyl wall word 'Dream' knowing it would go over her bed, but it needed something more, so just adding one a wonderful frame from my workroom pile made it perfect. 

Something else we love to do with old frames is make them in to bulletin boards.   We have several for sale on our website and I will offer them for sale on this blog too.  We only have a couple right now, but will have several more done this month.   If you are interested,  in one of them, let me know.

Love and God Bless,   Robin,  Niki, &  Marlo
