SMITTEN!!! The photos are FINALLY here!


Our beautiful room at
here in Fredericksburg, Texas
is stocked to the brim and ready for shoppers!

The store will be opening this week,
on Thursday,
but I was down at the shop snapping away
Sunday afternoon just to give all of you
a preview!

This post is packed full of photos,
so I'll let them do most of the talking....

There's no "my side of the room"
or "her side of the room".
All our stuff is happily intermingled,
as I think our styles complement each other quite well.

And I'm even selling my vintage scale which made
the cover of Artful Blogging magazine!

 I'm a contributor to the wonderful magazine
FOLK, so you can always be assured of
finding a copy at our shop.

{ goodbye birdcage...SOLD! }

And of course, I'm fortunate enough to be 
sharing this room with my good friend Shannon of

{ goodbye sweet pink and yellow chairs of mine...sold right away! }

{ goodbye beautiful watering can of mine...SOLD! }

{ goodbye colorful frame of mine...SOLD! }

 'Tis all for now!
Our space here at Smitten will constantly
be evolving, with new treasures being brought in weekly.

I'm sorry to say that we cannot ship items,
so you'll just have to make the trip to Fredericksburg
and shop the store in person.
I'll look forward to seeing you!

401 E Auguste and S Washington
Fredericksburg, Texas

 More photos of the rest of this lovely shop
to come in the days ahead!

And many thanks to
Jennifer, Debbie and Paula
for allowing us to be a part
of this wonderful adventure!

On the agenda this weekend...
junking and restocking galore
at Fredericksburg Trade Days!
Maybe I'll see you there!

Have a great week!
