Yesterday I met my friend Christie Repasy in Redlands at the home of friends,
Lori & Jamie Martin. Lori is a lifelong antiques dealer who has passed the passion for Vintage onto her daughter Jamie. Lori has a space in Old Glory Antiques in Redlands and Jamie co-owns a shop named Shabby Chateau in Crestline. Both gals were at Glitterfest across from me and next to Christie.
Driving through the amazing Victorian, Crafstman, Bungalow and Spanish style house lined streets of Old Redlands is worth the trip alone. Amazing homes!
This is the Martin's Home. It sits way back from the street.
The carved details and architectural elements we were drooling over!
The drivway and detached garage was full of antiques for us to shop from.
We even made our way into the attic...up, up, up the old wood stairs we go.
Watch out for ghosts!
Here they are...not the Ghosts...LOL!
I found the girls digging through old petticoats and linens...
Lori has Dreamy stuff EVERYWHERE!
Just Loved the Raspberry color in the dining room.
The kitchen is wide open, Dreamy pale pink with Architectural elements everywhere. The table in the middle is sold and Lori is installing a vintage store counter as the center Island. She is also planning on doing the floor in black and white to compliment the Candy Store Theme!

She said, please make sure you say, my home is still a work in progress.
Please, Christie and I were just in Vintage Heaven!
Christie's Booty she scored...all very pretty and oh so "Christie"
On it's way back to her studio to prepare for Chateau de Fleurs on June 18th/19th.
Okay, so why does my pile look like a pile of "poo" compared to Christie's????
Box of baubles...YUM! Old Lamp parts, Victorian Black Parasols...to be recovered.
A victorian lace dress in perfect condition and Cupcake bags...to go with my new
line of Confection themed Jewels!!!
Seriously, it will look better when I am done with it all.
We spent all day Antiquing...More on that tomorrow!
A beautiful day spent with Three Beautiful friends, "Junktiqueing" together.
Does it get much better than that?
Happy Sunday everyone!
