Vera's Daughter

Hello! 

It's almost Thanksgiving and I don't even know what desserts I'm making yet!










Because I've been busy.




Very busy.




A dear friend and (now) neighbor moved her lovely little home decor store over the last two weeks and I've been helping her. The store, Vera's Daughter, really just moved down the street but it was still quite a task.




The new store at 21127 Mack Ave, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI, reopened November 1 but the official Grand Re-opening/Christmas Open House was yesterday.




I've got lots of random stuff to blog about, but I thought I would just pound you with pictures today.




Some of these pictures were taken back on Oct 31. The rest are from yesterday's open house. 




Did you notice?

Like 4 pictures ago?




I'm selling my pine cone Christmas trees there.

I'm so proud.




There are lots of gorgeous trees . . .




And cool hand made ornaments . . .
















This hanging trellis is much prettier in person.


Isn't everything lovely?





 I'm a little smitten with this mirror...





You may have noticed this tree wrapped in tulle. It's like 600 60 years old and made of paper.  And the picture doesn't quite catch how beautiful it is wrapped up like that.



 There's Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint to buy . . .


And Paint Couture, Country Living, and ReClaim paints.



This is Beckie Kassner, the owner (2nd from left), with some of her supportive friends. 

She is an accomplished faux finisher and furniture painter and offers classes twice each week. There are all kinds of paints, glazes, waxes and oils to play with.


I took this picture because of the reflection, but if you look you can see . . .  I sold some trees!

Whoohoo! I'm famous!

All you Michigan women - get your butts over to Vera's Daughter before Christmas!


More stuff later . . . 

Make something wonderful today!

Karen thanks for this inspiring post! I'm lovin' all these Christmas photos, and it makes me want to go through all my Christmas boxes right now. I love the style of the entire shop and I wish I was closer I'd be there in a heartbeat. How fun to be involved in the move. Good luck to your friend in her new location I'm sure it will be quite the success.

What a beautiful shop! Some very inspiring stuff there. (Hey---if you help someone move a store, can you take the day off from exercising?)

What a lovely shop! And your forest of pine cone trees looks beautiful on the painted dresser! Good luck!

Bliss said...

Well well well.... I have a feeling you have more to offer the shop than only pine cone trees.

Everything looks so pretty and festive, Karen. Your pine cone trees will be gone in no time...you'd better make more! I love that wrapped tree. It really looks like a great shop.

Beautiful shop and I love your trees! Would your friend be willing to share where she got those glittery "merry Christmas" hangings?
