Rachel is B-A-C-K

Hot diggity dog – I received my copy of Rachel Ashwell’s latest book – Shabby Chic Interiors; My Rooms, Treasures and Trinkets. Tiffany of Shabby Scraps received hers recently, and seems to love it as much as I do. I’ve just turned the pages quickly on my first once through. It is a gorgeous endeavor, and by the time I hit the last two chapters – Behind the Scenes and Details, I was even more enthralled. This is a book you want to own.

And more good news – I found out from reading Rachel’s latest blog posting on Shabby Chic, that she opened Shabby Chic Couture on September 12 at the original location of her very first store in Santa Monica. Her blog entries sharing the business challenges she has endured are truly poignant. I so admire her vision, perseverance and honesty.

Oh I'm dying to get my hands on that book...I'm gonna have to try and make it to the bookstore so I can pick one up! I'm so glad she seems to be bouncing back, she really is a style icon :)
