I'm In!!!

Well, I made it, but not without lot's of help. My hubbs and son-in-law, Chris;
my two trusty sidekicks, did the hard work.
I still have more things to bring in, but at least I'm there.

This is the first time I've moved into a space
 that I didn't bring enough stuff to fill it up.

So I still need to put a few more tubs together of smalls,
and bring in a few more prints.

The huge architectural window piece has been in my garage for a year or two.
I thought it made a good statement sitting there in the middle.

that was sooooo much fun,
and I have the scar to prove it!

I had the wicker settee in my Dining Room,
but it's time to let it go.
I traded it out for a church pew that I recently painted white.

Here's lookin' at ya!

If you live in the area, Relics is a lot of fun.
Located on West Battlefield and Kansas Expressway.
10-6 M-F,
12-6 Sunday.

The new Tea Room is scheduled for late Spring.
(can't wait!)

Hope you all had a good weekend,
I've been a bum today.

love ya,

  12. Hi Debra,
    It all looks so great..I am in CA and have been following you for awhile now as you live close to my Mom...she lives in Buffalo about 45 minutes away, she would like to get into a small space somewhere like a 5x7 or so...we are called Tattered Goods and we do what we call industrial/cottage decor as well as our dish towels and pillows that we offer at retail and wholesale and many other things. My Mom is here in Ca now and will be back home in MO April 1st. I would love to get the 2 of you together so she can find the hot spots to be and such as we are needing/wanting to have a booth in Springfield or the Ozark area...check us out at or email us at

I can see it hanging on someones porch... oh and one of those zinc tables from your last post too! Have fun fluffing! Theresa xoxo

  35. That arched piece is wonderful and certainly makes a statement! I have no doubt that in just a few weeks, you'll be lamenting not having enough room instead of stuff. 'Course that really won't be a'll be flying out as fast as you bring it in!

  39. Deb it looks wonderful! We heard about Relics from Ruthie and it sounds so exciting. We hope to make it back to Springfield this spring. Maybe to look for a home....we'll see what God has planned. Say "Hello" to Melony and Brian for us. It's been several years since we have seen them. You all look like your doing fabulous! May God continue to bless as you look to him for all things. Blessings, Judy and Sara

  46. Hi Debra,
    I know it's hard work putting together a booth, but isn't it wonderful when you can stand back and look at how pretty it is.
    It looks wonderful and I love your backdrop of burlap walls. Everything looks wonderful and my guess is you will be filling it up again next week.


  47. Great looking blog. I wish I was close enough to shop. Glad I found you. By the way, I have a contest giveaway on my blog you might find fun. Take a look.

  48. Please tell me you did not lift the tea cart. You will fill up the space in no time at all. I am on a gardening binge and feel like I have been thrown down the stairs. loveya♥t

  49. What fun, Debra!! You are going to be so busy in that awesome booth! It looks just wonderful!!!!

    xoxo laurie

  55. Debra,
    It looks lovely. Can't wait to see even more goodies in it.
    Love the simplicity of the bird picture right in middle of old frame. Is it glued on edges??

  56. Debra, it looks great..I will watch for you as I am stocking at Relics. Hope to see you soon.

  57. Quality, not quantity, it all looks so good. I only wish I lived closer, I'd be a loyal customer. You'll be constantly busy with re-stocking. It all looks fabulous.

  58. Lookin good Debra! Doesn't it feel good to get it all organized and out of your house? I sometimes wish i had a bigger space, but i don't want to get in over my head and this size is easy to manage.

    Take care my friend.
