Booth News, House News

I haven't posted pics or given y'all an update on my booth space
in a coon's age, so I thought it was about time.

Since the big move to a primo downstairs space three months ago,
my sales have really taken off.
Better yet, a lot of the big pieces which had collected dust for MONTHS upstairs
are racing out the door these days.
Location, location, location!

Me and the Mister headed down to the booth today
with a few big pieces and here's the finished product...

I'm not loving it yet.
I still have sooooo much stuff I need to take down there, s
o much primping and foofing to could seriously look so much better
if I only had the time. I have the stuff, just not the time!

And I have some news on the HOUSE I posted on yesterday!
It needs a name, so I'm calling it Transom Manor (hehehe!),
so named because of the AWESOME transom windows throughout the house.


~We put in an offer today!~
And when our realtor submitted it to the sellers agent,
she apparently smiled and said 
"This is a really good offer!"

So, YAY!
This is looking like it's going to be our new home.
We shall see!

As I showed y'all yesterday, it's pretty much picture perfect
with the exception of needing a LOT of exterior painting. So I decided to play.

I went in and did some sloppy photoshopping
and gave the old girl a fresh coat of paint.
What do ya think?


 and After

Just a glimpse of what can will be.

In conclusion, I'd just like to thank every single person who drops by here,
reads my rambling thoughts and then takes the time to leave a comment.
I read each and every one of them,
and always do my absolute best to pay each of you a visit, too.
Sometimes it takes me a few days,
but I always do my best. It's not a chore, it's a privilege!

Love to all of you, and have a wonderful Friday!

Angie said...

i am so glad to hear everything is working out! I am definitely putting you in my prayers so everything turns out great!

glor said...

Oh I'm so happy for you. I love your booth, it must be so great to set it up and the house ... thrilled for you. Blessing galore your way!

Laurie said...

Transom Manor looks gooooood all dressed up in her new techo paint job! Can't wait to hear the good news that your offer was accepted! The booth looks adorable; I'll take 1 of those in the corner - what am I saying! Seriously, I'm in deep trouble this fall when your Etsy shop reopens. Maybe I'll let Maya shop for something purty. Have a great weekend, Anne girl.

Joanna {sweet finds} said...

hello Anne,

good luck to you! I hope it all works out. :) Your booth space looks great. I so miss my mall days... and all the shopping & fluffing I use to do!

I had a great time visiting with you at PC.

hugs, Joanna

Hill Country House Girl said...

Your booth is fabulous!! Interesting news on the first house.........sounds like you are being very wise. It is a small town and you sure don't want to step into anyone's drama before you even move here (or after you get here, either!!) Love the second one - I recognized the first one, but will have to keep my eyes open when I am running around town for this one. Cute front porch with the door in the corner!! Wishing you all the best and can't wait to read the news when it is final!

Beth A. from Songbird Hill said...

Sweet Anne, Hope you get the home of your dreams! You're just a doll!

Diane said...

Wonderful news Anne =) Loved seeing your booth, I think it rocks!

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Anne, your booth looks gorgeous!!! I'm so excited for you, looks like everything is working out on the house, can't wait to hear it's official!!! hugs~~~Daphne

Abby's Garden said...

Your booth is so dreamy and beautiful! It must be even more beautiful in person, I'm sure! Good luck with house #2, it is darling:)

Beach House Living said...

That's your idea of sloppy photoshop? It looks great with the paint.

I like your booth and the wire dress form...the head on it is a bit scary though. I guess I've never recovered from being sat down between my two older sister's walking dolls that had eyes like that...The dolls were bigger then I was!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Anne your booth looks so great!! Happy for you and Transom Manor! Looking good!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Congratulations, Anne! You'll be perfect in your new house! I'm so happy for you...I'm going to email you about a few items in your shop now...
Happy Fourth.

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Your booth space looks awesome!! I found lots of things that I would love to have. And I am so excited about your house. I can't wait to find out if they accept your offer. Praying that things will work out for you. The house looks so pretty with a fresh coat of paint. I would spend a lot of my time sitting in that porch swing. It is so inviting! Happy 4th! Love & blessings from NC!

lara at beachychic said...

If you had the time? What ever are you talking about! Your booth looks very nicely done already!! If I was in that shop, I would seriously race over to your spot. Now you have inspired me to find an old peeling ice cream parlor round type seat chair (not sure what they are called) like the one by your booth desk. Oh that house is so perfect.. so much to love about it.. so excited for you!!!! Have a fun wkend! x

Vintage Junky said...

yay!!! I love transom manor.... I think that the other house fell through because this is your home!
smiles~ Michelle

Bella said...

Hi Anne, I had to check back to see how house buying was going... Good luck it is soo cute:-) I love your booth too, the suitcase of goodies is perfectly posed:-)

north pal said...

oh if it only was that easy. i would have you do my home also. when i read that i laughed out loud. that tickled me. Bestest,Denise

Teri said...

"Hi" from another TX gal. That house will be so much fun to "gussy up" as my grandmother used to say. :)

Glenda... said...

I think it's a lovely omen that the door is in the corner of a house that may be the "Transom Manor" home of a girl....that has a window in the corner of her blog header.
It's a lovely house for a lovely couple.

Sue said...

Your booth looks awesome! Great displays, and what's the coin operated machine? I bought an old Kotex machine from one of the dealers at my store, and I love it, hangs in my bathroom. And I'm hoping all works out with this house. It truly has great potential.

Take care, Sue

Annesphamily said...

Anne I want to come visit you! I love the booth and the house is awesome! You are so truly blessed. I have your button on my blog. You have to come visit me soon so you can see it! I was technically clueless. I am slooowly learning this stuff! Now for the crafty part of the blog stuff. Happy 4th sweet lady! Anne

Shirley said...

Hi, Your booth is awesome and location has a lot to do with whether you sell or not. I keep thinking about trying the mall again and then I think about the time that I don't have to do it justice. Your house has a lot of country charm and so much potential. I like the front porch. The doors are something you don't see to much of anymore, but all of the transoms will definitely let the air circulate. I will keep my fingers crossed that you get this house. Your Missouri Friend.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

I see lots of things in your booth I wish could come home with me. Good luck with the house and we will all be waiting to see how you decorate.
xo, Sherry

Marlene said...

Thats a beautiful house!! I love the after all white..A True Cottage..That front entrance is just begging for a beautiful climbing pink Rose bush....gorgeous!!!

julie miller said...

Hey Anne, Your booth is lookin' great and I'm happy for you that your sales are doing well! Good luck to you and the Mister on your house quest! It looks like it will be wonderful and all yours before you know it!! Love, Julie

Anne! Love this house. Would you really want or need to paint it? It has Twig written all over it. ;) What a fresh, quaint and vintagey grand house! I wish you the best...the house that is to be yours will work out without a hitch. Keep the faith, and have fun in your cozy new booth space too! ~ Angela

Melanie said...

Yeah Anne!!

I have my fingers crossed for you!!! That house is just too adorable for words. Those transoms make me a little weak in the knees, let's be honest!:-)

Wishing you a very happy weekend!!!


Meri Wiley said...

Congratulations....I'm so happy for you and your new home. Can't wait to see it after you've been in it for a while and have it "Fiona-fied" or "Twigged" up.........LOL


clustres said...

Anne, your booth looks great. You know how it is, you'll sell a lot and have to do over! Sweet house and I love those transoms!

Hey, did I know you had a "My Double" too? Love the shrunken head on top! The booth looks fab and of course, let's see...yea, I LOVE THE HOUSE, I'm still thinkin' light gray! I looked for a site where you could upload a photo to "paint" it different colors, but didn't see one that was for "dummies", me, not you!
love ya, you naughty girl!

Miranda said...

Yay!! So excited for you. I love White on White homes. They are charming. We did our dream home in all white. The painter and framers thought I was nuts. Little did they know how awesome it would turn out. I just posted pics on my blog if you're interested.

Your booth looks great. I love the rose pillow. I'm looking for something like that for my daughters bed.

Miranda said...

Oh, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name Transom Manor. So regal.

Rose Garden Romantic said...

You booth looks lovely, Anne! So glad to hear you got a primo downstairs spot now! Happy to hear the house news, too! I love that house and those transom windows are wonderful!! I sure do love old houses and how great that the inside is updated and ready for move in!!

Sue (Vintage Rescue) said...

LOCATION, indeed. It *always* pays to move to the main level of an antique store/mall. And my fingers are crossed on either of your dream homes. They look fab!

TinyBear said...

Hi Anne,
I was just thinking about my booth this morning how it needs an overhaul! Yours has inspired me with some ideas. I love how you use the darks and lights together and of course, all your beautiful things for sale.

I'm happy for you about the house. I hope everything goes well and that you are soon the new owner of Transom Manor!


Polly said...

Second time seeing these photos, I noticed the flagstone that!! I hope everything works out....just as it is supposed to!!

You will have a blast working on your new house!!

Lululiz said...

I don't know why you are not loving your booth yet, I think it looks fabulous and if I wasn't a few thousand miles away, I'd love to shop there!

Everything crossed for this property. It really is a charming place and I have a good feeling about this one.

Parisienne Farmgirl said...

OMG! That house is SO DARLING! You are so excited OR WHAT!!! Gonna email you with a question about your shop - hoping your email is on your sidebar.

Anne said...

Anne, I think this cottage is just fabulous! In my mind, it's even better than the other one-- more quaint, and those transoms are the icing on the cake. I love how your booth looks. It would surely draw me in, with all the layers of things tucked here and there. I hope all goes well with the new home.

Your posts are always a treat to read; you come across as so authentic and approachable. These are 2 qualities I admire.

Shelia said...

Hi Anne! Oh, your booth is gawgeous! You have the touch, honey! I'm sorry you've had grieve over the Dream House. But I did go down and look at house #2! It's absolutely darling! And how wonderful the bathrooms and kitchen are so nice. There's even little glass knobs on the cabinets! :) God does know what is right for you! I did pray for you and the Dream House, but this little cottage really looks more like you! Can't wait to hear the rest of the story.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cassie Shella said...

Alrighty Anne, I can hear (read) your excitement all the way to Louisiana...YAY!

I love the name Transom's's so's so's so REFINED. You's so YOU! :)

Your excitement is so contagious.
Yesterday I was jumping around and singing "Anne's buying a house in Fredricksburg, Anne's buying a house in Fredricksburg!!!" The Man turned around and looked at me and said..."Who is Anne?"
I was floored.
Like mouth wide open floored.
Like WHO don't know who Anne is?
THE Fiona & Twig.
I looked at him with that "crazy" look.
I walked off.
who don't know who ANNE is...hmpf!

Libbie said...

I have been by a few tims to try to read your latest house news...everytime to called away by kids screaming or something! I can't believe I got through it! But then I wrote a long note & when I went to post I realized I was on my sisters computer (Rach) & that it was going to post under her now here I am finally hopefully doing it right :)

What a cute home! I love how you photoshopped that lil baby!!! Adorable! I love how you can see the future :) I can't wait to hear that everything went well!!!

Oh & that artwork on todays post from te class you attended...AMAZING! I felt like I was there :) great pics Anne!

I'll be stalking you & that lil house as I love to do to you :)

Love Lib

Privet and Holly said...

Anne, I'm late to the party, as usual....
{It's all that LIFE stuff getting in the way!}
But I had a few minutes this afternoon to visit
and I couldn't leave without saying YAHOOOOOOO!
I love this sweet house! So, even though I'm like, comment #76, I hope that you will scroll down this far and know that I am holding you and this wonderful new chapter of your life close to my heart. Crossing my fingers that all of the i's get dotted and the t's crossed before the weekend is out! xx Suzanne

Janet said...

your space looks adorable :) wow! the house really shines up with a fresh coat of paint! fingers and toes crossed!

Tarnished Rose said...

I didn't know you got a primo space! Must have missed that, sorry, or I would have sent congratulations sooner. That's my dream, when I retire in 14 years (& counting LOL) to have my own booth space around where I live. I'm already doing research and learning all I can so when retirement arrives, I'm ready. I plan on traveling to all the cool flea markets, estate sales, and antique weekends I can (as soon as I can figure out how to drive more than an hour without getting sleepy!). Congrats again!


Debby said...

I am lovin' your booth, looks fabulous and full of so many beautiful things. Good luck with the house.
