What is Shabby 365?

This blog is for lovers of all things shabby, vintage, Paris flea market, french country, tattered, torn and worn. I will be submitting a photo (or photos) every day for a whole year that remind me of the shabby way of life...plus a few of my favorite things that are not so shabby....like faces and places of those I love:-) I enjoy photography and would like to learn to use my camera once and for all so what better way, right? Some of the photos will be by me but when I find something so irresistible by someone else, I will definitely share it. Who knows...maybe I'll post more than one a day. Just think...after one year, I will have a gorgeous coffee table book. This might end up being a labor of love that appeals to me and only me, I know that. But if you want to take a peek once in awhile, I'd love that too! There will be very little writing...mostly stories told in pictures...so if this is something that appeals to you, come along with me on a journey into shabbiness. Suzanne

Day 1...Beautiful Bottles

I think these are called cross bottles but I'm not sure. I've been eyeing these at Anthropologie, my favorite store but never did buy them. I think they were around $20+ but I don't remember for sure. But when I saw them on Saturday at Homegoods for $9...I was so excited!!! I LOVE HOMEGOODS!:-)
