~ A Merry Little Christmas ~

Yet again another Christmas season is upon us. Thankful for the chill in the air after the long hot summer. Finally got a little wind under my wings and dragged in the white shabby tree. Not too big on fancy ornaments this year so I simply added little treasures from the house to adorn the tree...

Items that say "HELLO!".....

Available on Etsy

There is nothing like bringing into your home those special pieces that simply speak to you and your family/friends. Our home is filled with many treasures that evoke timeworn beauty, elegance, and a need to say "Hello!" as you pass by or stand in front of them to admire their lovely features. The holidays are fast approaching as is the task of finding those select gifts for your loved ones. Through our searches, it is my and my daughter's pleasure to bring forth beautiful pieces that would make fabulous holiday gifts for yourself or those on your shopping list. Feel free to visit us at the Lonestar Antique Mall in Haltom City, Tx (the mall is currently having their Mall-wide anniversary sale!) or stop by our wonderful Etsy shops:

Not Just Another Pretty Face.....

Not just another pretty face..... about 2 beautiful faces. Let me introduce everyone to 'Alexander' and 'Calypso' - the two newest OOAK taxidermy creations by my daughter. Both can be found here:
***NOTE: These beauties are currently housed at the Dallas, Tx "Curiosities" shop located near Abrahm's Rd. and Hwy 30. Both are on consignment and still available at this time ( as well as in the Etsy shop while they last). Thank you!

Snap! Snap! Snap!

Just felt like snapping a few photos of the full booth at Lonestar. Nothing like being in the cool air conditioning as we are finally starting to enter the Texas summer heat! UGH!

Booth Bliss

Well, the booth at Lone Star is certainly brimming with lots of goodies. Not in the most organized of ways as of now but changes are soon to come in the booth!!! Just two magazines left of Jeanne d'Arc Living. Most booths at Lone Star are still having sales as is ours, so please come on by and have a look at all the wonderful goodies throughout the store!

~ French Nordic Chills ~

Well, the wonderful Jeanne D'Arc Living magazines arrived in the mail yesterday. How exciting to open up the boxes all the way from Denmark. To smell that wonderful new book odor. To view upon the lovely pages without advertisements! To have my daughter take them to Lone Star this afternoon only to have the special edition book sell out within a 2 hour time span. The magazine has created a book entitled 'Brilliant REUSE ', filled with their last years most memorable pictures and creative ideas. The magazines are filled with beautiful summer ideas and Scandinavian chic. Unfortunately, the April magazines are now sold out through the company as they only publish a limited quantity in English. I have pre-ordered for June but they will not arrive for 3 weeks.

Grab your 5th edition JDL magazine for May while you can, as this is all that is left at my Lone Star booth.
 ~ Going, going, gone...~
 ~ Hurry ladies!!!! Run while you can...~
 ~ Oh Deer ! That lady took the last book!!! Said she gots chills looking at the first page! ~

~ Jeanne D'Arc Has Arrived ~

It has been quite a while since my last blog. I am excited to announce that I have decided to offer Jeanne D'Arc magazines and products in my booth at Lone Star Antiques. If you have never heard of this magazine, you are in for a fabulous treat !!! Originating in Denmark, this magazine has been around for a while in Europe. Now the company is offering their products to the United States. I am posting some pics from last months magazine. Believe me when I say every magazine is gorgeous! I have a special place for mine so they do not get messed up. They are $13.95 each and worth every cent. If you love shabby Gustavian white on white this is the book for you. They are expanding their items to clothes and linens, but with the shipping and customs charges from Europe it may be something I will pursue in the future if they open up a base here in the states.

To ALL the Single Ladies.... Here's Looking at You!

Greetings! My name is Presley (or "Poo-Poo Face" as my mom likes to call me, because I like to have my nose in everything)! This is me right after being told I was about to go for a walk! I am a handsome bachelor and consider myself a loving and distinguished gentleman! I blend in very well to a home full of creamy shabby vintage goodies! Tata!

Around the House

2 very neat primitive wood carnival-type horses just acquired.
These beauties will be on their way to LoneStar very shortly!

Sometimes it seems so nice to take a moment and reflect upon the treasures lovingly displayed around one's home. Quite difficult it has become to acquire many of the items one has previously been able to (both easily and/or inexpensively)! These are just a few images of beautiful items that made their way into our collection! Enjoy!
