  9. Dearest Jacki ~

    What a lovely feast for the eyes here at you HOME...such a pleasure to catch up and fill my mind with such prettiness! You always find the best of the best!

    As you know, we returned from Laguna a few days ago, and it was an incredible trip! Perfect weather and divine beach all while McDreamy indulged in his artist workshop. Now, we are heading to the wine country (for work), but we will definitely throw in a little fun too!

    No doubt you are enjoying the changing of the seasons...believe it or not, I'm already thinking of the holidays! Yikes, this scares me!


  10. merci pour ces ambiances

    Bonne journée Jackie

  17. What lovely romantic softness, looking straight out of 'I Capture the Castle', where I can imagine you wafting around ever so slightly eccentrically with a Top Hat and a polished silver plater of the Finest Macaroons.

  18. Gloriously shabby Jackie - I love that blue door with the fancy key thingy. And how miniscule is that mannequins waist?! Hope you had a wee sleep in this morning! xx

  24. Dear Jacqueline, I love these 'shabby' images. Country house shabby chic could well describe both my house and my apartment although I sometimes find it problematic to know where the shabby finishes and the chic begins. I love the peeling plaster that I see elsewhere but I somehow cannot live with it, and the decorator has to be summoned at the slightest crack in the paintwork.

  25. You always find the best pics. I don't know where you get them from! Loving those shabby tables. I am hoping that whatever bug I had is done with. I have missed coming and visiting you so much!

  26. I love that mirror over the bathtub !

  27. once again....
    you freak me out with your amazing images.


  28. Hi Jackie! WOW, what a perfect grouping of gorgeous pictures!!! LOVE them all!

    Hope you are well!

    Hugs ~

    Before I forget, I saw your wonderful summer holiday photos... we also went to Cinque Terre this summer (stayed in Monterosso for 12 days at Villa Montale, which was once owed by the famous and noble prize winning poet, Eugenio Montale) ... then spent 4 days in Florence.
    I think you also did the Amalfi coast the previous summer, like us!
    I wonder if we choose the same destination next year ... lets wait and see...

    Many hugs and kisses

    Your shabby images are stunning. I love the layers of colors and patina. You have a great eye for beauty!



  64. What absolute beauty! Love all the images, but the first is my favorite.


  65. Very delectable shabby Jackie.....Happy Sunday, xv.

  66. you get me so much inspiration, very beautiful. Worn-out furniture from the past is always beautiful, the hard-cleaner more beautiful.
    I am always glad when you're vicit me, Jackie, just so you know.
    Many varm hugs to you/Ingela

  67. Such an inspirational post...I want it all. I am dreaming of a small stone cottage, on a river near Oxford (studied there for two and it was love at first sight), its walls and roof covered in damask roses, a huge fireplace and these beautiful time worn pieces...

  68. Just gorgeous Jackie, you always have the most delightfully inspiring images!! Best wishes for a wonderful week..,

    Jeanne xx

  69. Great photo choices, Jackie! xo

  70. Haha, as usual, I want it all =)!!!
    Why can´t I have it?

    I´ll try to make my home really shabby, when the new building is done.
    I´m hoping for the kitchen to be done for christmas =P!

    Glad you didn´t miss my giveaway and crossing my fingers ;)!

    Have a nice evening!

  71. Wow, I’m exhausted from the intense scrolling down and reading all your comments. Thank you so much for your kind words and support. When I come to look at your blog, I’m am transformed by your lovely world, great eye, and feeling for the romantic. You are a rare jewel Jackie and I am so happy to consider you a friend in this sometimes crazy world. Thanks for transporting me to a frothy, lacy space...Cynthia

  75. I'm so glad this is still in style! I haven't visited in a while. I hope everything is well with you! Jennifer:)

  76. OPPS...I posted about the blue and the white doors, handles, locks and lace, etc..with the wrong set of images....but all the same these SHABBY things are beyond DELIGHTFUL...way beyond.

    I am going back to look at each again...and re-absorb the pleasure of the sight of them.
