A Vision Of A Not Too Shabby Life

One of my fav Shops to visit because I KNOW I'll always find something special to take Home is "Not Too Shabby"  in Phoenix.  Proprietor Kim Rawlins is not only fun *as you can see by the adorable photo* and has a knack for discovering the most fabulous finds across the world to bring back to the Shop, but also of displaying them in the most beautiful and inspiring ways.  It is always a delight to visit and discover a new old Treasure to add to feathering my Nest, I could walk around this large Shop for hours and yet keep finding something I missed, so I know I'll have to come back again and again.   And don't think you will only find one style of decor, lighting and fashions here... certainly they have a wealth of beautiful chippy Shabby Chic Style... but there is an eclectic mix that will suit almost any taste... French, Industrial, Retro, Junk Market Style, Shabby Glam, Victorian, Bohemian, Country, Loft Style, Garden Style, New Orleans Style, Architectural Salvage, Paris Apartment, Romantic, Exotic, Vintage... you fill in the blank, because you are likely to find just what you're looking for... and even some things you weren't looking for and realize you can't live without! *wink* So sit back and let me take you on my latest forray to this vision of a Not Too Shabby Life... and if you come back tomorrow we'll finish our tour, because it is simply far too much to take in with just one visit... so follow me down the Rabbit Hole... and bring your U-Haul because you're probably going to need it *wink*... as we enter the enchanting World of Not Too Shabby... Dawn... The Bohemian


  1. A mon tour de te souhaiter une bonne année 2011.
