Coming soon..


My new and improved blog with this new blog banner. The work of susie q at eye spy, it’s nearing completion and will be live just about the time I’m ready to start blogging in earnest again.

I’ve been spinning my wheels in attempts to get something going at Casa Blanca, between traveling and family visiting, and I feel discombobulated and spazzzed out where decorating is concerned. I haven’t taken the time to start any projects, and Lord knows, they’re stacked up around here like dead flies. Focus Melissa, focus!

And then there’s this

console 010

It’s a long story and another project that got plopped down in my dining room, where it can not stay! I would like to see it refinished because it is a beautiful piece and BIG. Big and beautiful – but not for my house.

Neither is this


But I would like to snatch it up from the thrifty store and refinish it! It’s BIG and solid wood, with fantastic hardware. It could be a true beauty. For someone. And for 114$ I think it’s cheap! I hated to leave it behind and may have to go back for it. 

I’ve been yammering on about a store for many years now and that’s why I keep collecting – it’s all for the store! One of these days………


  1. OOo so excited to see the blog makeover!

    And YES to the store. I'll help you scour deals in the northern states.

  2. Love your new blog look. As the purveyor of a small booth myself (with Bri), I wish you all the luck in the world. We're actually about to hang it up, but have another venture in mind.

    I'm actually looking for a campaign-style dresser/chest to use as a basement credenza. It's so hard to pass up a good deal though, so I feel your pain!

  3. Kewl! Totally diggin' the new header, babe.
    And that desk...wowee.
    Cheers, Alcira


What you got for me?
