First Post

So this is my first post on my new adventure!  I hope to fill these pages with shabby chic furniture, gifts, and home decor.  Now I realize I'm not the first person to ever do this, nor will I be the last.  But  I do hope to entertain you with my quick whited humor, fantastic finds, and my oh so professional photography and movie tutorials!
First up, a vintage shield arm chair...or maybe an antique Eastlake bed with side how about a French Provincial night/end much to share, so little time :)
Maybe next time I'm on a pickin adventure I will bring along my camera...get some feed back from all of you out there (out there....out there...that's my tiny little voice echoing in the abyss of world wide web!) to see what you want to know about!  Oh...guess that I should tell you a little about me...

My name is Christie and I graduated from Harrington School of Design in Chicago.  I have about 15 years of design experience including commercial, residential. and historic.  Due to the fallen economy, design jobs are slim in the area I live. SO I am looking to create a little niche for myself in the small town I live in.  Oh, speaking of where I'm located...I live in a far west suburb with my family in the cutest little town of Sycamore!  My location my be too far for me to travel for work, but it puts me in a prime location for vintage pieces, antiques, and other oddities .  Some of my favorite things to do are go to barn sales, estate sales, and flee markets. 

I have the most awesome ability to find what ever it is your looking for.  Though I am not an appraiser, I also know what those weird things are that no one else seems to know.  Everyone has a gift, mine is knowing what the heck that thing is!

Enough about me.  I'd love to hear from the abyss of the world wide web.  Let me know what you're looking for, what you've found, questions about furniture and design!  I'd love to help!
