She's Back...

Last November I posted about my friend, Stephanie Lloyd. Well, just after I posted about
her, her wonderful antique and design business became overwhelmingly busy with the
holiday rush and she didn’t have time to blog.

But now she’s back and has been doing some wonderful posts that I think you will enjoy.
The picture at the top of this blog is on her snowy property at home.

This barn is also on her property and one of three that are filled with antiques waiting to go
to her store or be lovingly restored by her husband, Ken.

Recently, Stephanie has been doing her interior design work on an old Craftsman style
home in Vermont.  She will be showing you lots more but here is just a peek...

Her wonderful store is filled with all kinds of fabulous treasures.  This is a view looking
in the window...

She changes the window and store interior often.  Here is a peek inside...

This is all just a hint of what Stephanie will be showing and talking about on her blog.

If you have a chance please stop by and visit Stephanie's site and click on her blog tab.
If you leave a comment, please say hi for me.  Here's a little secret...Stephanie loves
Christmas and is just now taking down her decorations which she blogged about this
morning!!!  So be sure to scroll down and read her last couple of  non-Christmas blogs
too!  She makes me laugh.

I know you will love her and enjoy what she has to say and show you.

I hope you are all keeping warm and cozy.

Love the old mail bags!! Those are so beautiful!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Thanks for coming back and letting me know! I saw the part about Vermont, and assumed it was there. I don't get to Hudson often, but we do get up there once in a while. I will definitely go if I get a chance!

Stephanie is as nice as her inventory is beautiful. Love the mail bags and the apothecary filled cupboard/table.

Oh my, I have the feeling this is going to take a while. Your friend has a lovely store from what I see. Off to visit.

Thanks for the heads up and since she's just a hop, skip and jump away I'll have to go check out her shop.

Hi Susan! I think I remember when you featured her the first time on your blog. She had a gorgeous table that I loved in her shop. I LOVE the barn on her property... beautiful... and I love the pieces in her shop! I'll pop on over to her blog and say "hi". ;-)
Happy Sunday to you!

Beautiful pics...I'm lusting after those mailbags!

Thanks so much for stopping over and your kind words...I'm sorry for the loss of your sweet kittie also; 27 years and raised by dog - that must have been one very special cat!!
Hugs to you!

Stephanie's store looks so delightful! I will happily re-visit her blog again. Thanks!

Have a wonderful week!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Oooh, this looks gorgeous. I'll head over there after I've finished nosing through your blog!!

I've just followed you too. Isn't that weird...I really thought I'd followed you before. I'd bookmarked your blog ages ago and have been here lots of times. Weird!


Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

What a great store with stuff I love. I will have to go check out her blog.

Mona thompson said...

I'll have to go and see. How funny about the Christmas! Have a great week. Mona

Stephanie Lloyd said...

You and I were close friends from ages 4 to 17. When we re-connected after a pretty long gap (no, I won't say for how many years!), it was as if no time had passed by. But then it's easy to fall in with someone of your warm, engaging spirit.

Thank you for your kind words and for making me sound so good.
