Just a note dear blog friends, that I will be taking a break from blogging for a while to catch up around the house, heal my knee with physical therapy & to take a class I've wanted to take for a long time! HaPpY FaLL! XO
Here is the winner ladies for the fall blog give-a-way......Thanks to all who posted! The number was randomly generated by violets are blue. I will get these goodies out at the beginning of next week. (gotta go slow with the knee this week!) All is well & the surgery was a SNAP! I can't wait for the go-ahead to get back on the treadmill after an all summer long hiatus from the gym. I am going stir crazy sitting still! xo
The number generated was # 26~who happens to be PAINT DIVA!!!! Please email me your address email@example.com & I will get your stash in the mail by monday Congrats to you!

Last but not least.... Do you remember the pink tapestry french chair I picked up & showed you in an earlier post? Well, I am so pleased to say it has been painted a linen white & distressed & I am so happy with the outcome! See for yourself! I am adding a touch of gold with a dry brush for some added elegance when I can get to it. I love the transformation~ what do you think?
After a very busy & very short summer it's back to work in the tuttichic boutique! I am happily adding beautiful vintage finds I've been collecting all summer long. I don't usually mix boutique biz with my blog but... I've been away from boutique work far to long & am so happy to be back at it!
I'll be having knee surgery on the 19th of September, so I'll be taking some time off to recuperate (it's arthroscopic so I should be back on my feet in no time!) My poor knee has gone from bad to worse & it's time to have it fixed. I think I've been limping for so long that one leg is shorter than the other! I miss the gym & I don't like being sidelined (It keeps me from going at warp speed-the only speed I knowLOL! ) A little nervous about it so feel free to say ANYTHING to make me feel better about it! :)
I will be having a FAB beginning of FALL give-a-way towards the end of this week so stay tuned!
