Rachel is turning on the lights !




As soon as the new Rachel Ashwell book came out..... I rushed to the bookstore in Portsmouth NH, expecting a huge Ashwell display greeting me as I came thru the front door.

Did not happen.

I went to the desk and asked for the location of the new Rachel Ashwell book....

"Who?" asked the lady at the counter.

I was aghast... but then my husband had just asked me the same question... oh well it was not gonna dampen my spirit...

As I repeated my request, the counterlady began typing on the computer and responded.... "all I see is a book titled Shabby CHICK Interiors and it is back-ordered until October 3. Would you like for us to call you when it comes in?"

I still don't have my copy of the book yet...

but today I received a mass email from Rachel ... letting me know that she is turning on the lights at her 2 original stores. The store in Santa Monica re-opened Sept 12!

here is a link to her blog with the details.

I am a huge fan of Rachel's design and have used her philosophy in making our house a home.
Today I am so happy to hear of her return and wish her success.

Your kitchen is looking fantastic! What a huge project that is. We do have soapstone counters and absolutely love them! They're pretty indestructible and I love that I don't have to be fussy with them. We oil them as we please, but they look fine in between oilings too. Usually, I oil before company comes or when I do a big house cleaning. Thanks for stopping by my blog :). I always appreciate your comments.

Diana,
Lovelovelove the kitchen renovation! Especially the aqua dining chairs -- wow! Then I noticed you painted them white, and I like them even better. Adds another touch of casualness and comfort.
Thanks for coming over and adding an understanding comment. Only mothers can understand those things! :) I'll keep checking in with you and the renovations.
