And so it begins! My first novel is published and I am officially a blogger. I hope some of you have seen the book, Shabby Chic at Heart, if not, give it a go! Check out the novel’s Pinterest page to get a glimpse of the characters and the fab shabby chic design in the novel. http://www.pinterest.com/kirstenfullmer/shabby-chic-at-heart/
Writing it was a journey I never expected, which caused me to fall head over heels in love with my characters. I was entertained and thrilled with their antics daily. My daughter thought I was crazy and kept telling me that they weren’t real people. I beg to differ, they just live in a different universe.
Of course I want to discuss my novels, but I also want to talk shabby chic of all sorts as well. Do you shop flea markets? Thrift stores? Boutiques?
I first fell in love with shabby chic and vintage junk hunting when I lived in Tampa Florida. The area of town known as South Tampa is boutique mecca, and I mean every type of boutique. Furniture, clothing, baby gear, gardening, junk both old and new, fabulousness in every form. Some smart person set up a cigar shop and lounge next to three boutiques. How lovely! You can hunt through shops in peace for hours and the hubby is happy on the way home. Brilliant I say!
I’ve sent years filling my house with fabulous re-loved pieces, ruining my clothes with paint smears and filling room after room, wall after wall, then I moved on to renting boutique space, which was just far too fun.
Check out these links to some of my favorite Boutiques in Tampa.
Much to my husband’s relief I now write about saving junk, leaving him room to walk through the house and park in the garage. Not to say I don’t hit flea markets on my way to get groceries, or drag him through thrift stores, but for the most part he just has to ask me things four times before I look up from my alternate Shabby Chic reality, and he’s okay with that.
So here we go… BLOG with me!
