Shabby christmas

Wishing I was in New York today, two of my friends have been there in the last month and it makes me jealous! Its just so christmasy there. When we go I always drag the boy to the Shabby Chic store at 83 Wooster St. I could spend a whole day in there soaking up inspiration from the beautiful interior and displays, happily spending too much money, wishing it was my own shop. I know he secretly loves being surrounded by faded chintz and all that girly stuff (poor man).
I am also extra upset about missing the traveling collection of restored vintage prom dresses that were to eventually be sold in the New York Shabby chic store. And if I lived alone the bed linen below would have to be mine. I won't inflict that on him tho! I am a lucky girl I pretty much have the apartment how I like and he never made me suffer any kind of bachelor style decor : )
I just keep him quiet with a big flat screen TV and the remote controls (which never leave his hands!)

Oh it is a fun shop, its so pale and calming, like a faded floral heaven, just looking at it online is not enough I can't wait to go back to NYC so I can go in!

Thanks for your comment : )
