Look what I found at Elizabeth & Co.!

I just love hearing that a customer is enjoying something that they found at Elizabeth & Co. in their home. And I'm especially tickled when they send pictures! This week I received an update from Emily. She had requested a double dresser in coral a few months ago.
 
 
So first there was a crazy little adventure in the snow searching for a double dresser.
 
 
And because it was winter, painting outside was not an option.
 
 
Emily was planning a coral and gray nursery and she chose this yummy shade called Coral Expression.
 

And Emily knew she wanted a touch of gold on the hardware.


You can read all the details about the dresser transformation here, but now let's get to the good stuff - baby and nursery pictures!
 
Sweet little Lydia Rose arrived in May!
She is so beautiful!!!
 
 
And here is her gorgeous nursery in coral and gray!
Love the touches of gold - very sophisticated!
 
 
When I received these photos by email, I didn't even notice tiny Lydia in the glider!


I just love the sprinkle of gold dots over the crib!
This is a charming room that will grow with Lydia!


Huge congratulation to Emily and her beautiful family!
It was an honor to be a part of welcoming baby Lydia home!

*If you have something from Elizabeth & Co. in your home and would like to share, just send me a photo. It will totally make my day!

We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend for our summer tag sale. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to visit us! This week I'm boycotting the garage and looking forward to catching up on my real life and playing in the gardens. Now let's see what you've been up to lately ...

I love this gorgeous dining room reveal from Being Bianca!


Cindy from DIY Beautify shared her beautifully refinished dining room table!


Tuula from The Thrifty Rebel is in the middle of a bedroom make-over and this wonderful sleigh bed makes a great focal point!


And I love the fairy tale feel of this bed that Kathleen from Between Blue and Yellow painted for her daughter's room!
 

Such sweet details and curves!


How pretty and sophisticated is this grey French Provincial dresser from Danielle at The Painted Willows!


This Jadeite collection from My Thrift Store Addiction is so beautifully displayed!

Summer Wreaths

It's tag sale week here at Elizabeth & Co. and that means a whole new batch of wreaths!
 

I started out making wreaths to decorate our little house. I didn't even put sale tags on them. But when people kept asking to buy them, I realized I needed make a few more. Now seasonal wreaths are a tradition at all of our sales!


I love making wreaths. I find it really fun and relaxing!
Custom orders are welcome. I've even made wreaths for weddings!

 
Here's a look at some of the wreaths I made this time around!






 


We had an awesome opening day yesterday! But don't worry, the house is still chock full of vintage goodness. And a highlight of the summer sale is our huge yard sale in the back yard!
 
We'll be open ...
 
Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM
Saturday from 9 AM to 4 PM
 
Complete details are on the sidebar. Sure hope you can join us!

Be Inspired Features and Link Party #126

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!
 
Elizabeth and Co.

It's tag sale week here at Elizabeth & Co. and I'm feeling a little frazzled! I guess no matter how much time I have, I always think I can fit in one or two more projects. I think it's time to take a deep breath and just stop already! So let's see what you've been up to .....

Danielle from Finding Silver Pennies knows that I have a serious crush on her charming coastal home!


This is Danielle's beautiful sunroom reveal. I love the fresh classic simplicity!


The perfect spot for a lovely brunch and enjoying the sea breeze!


How beautiful and sophisticated is this home office from Amy at The Blissful Bee!


Gorgeous, right?


If you are interested in trying milk paint, then you really should check out this comprehensive guide from Reeves at The Weathered Door!


Reeves used milk paint on this gorgeous mustard empire dresser!


Love all the details on this pretty dresser transformation from Victoria's Vintage Designs!


Lauren from Bless'er House shared her tips for creating a beautiful gallery wall!


Barbara from Twenty One Rosemary Lane turned a worn and weary playroom into a beautiful and serene guest room!


Painted upholstery always sounds kind of crazy, but just look at the result from Shanna from Restoration Redoux!


At last week's party, Elisha from Pneumatic Addict Furniture shared her tips for darkening cabinets without stripping the existing finish. Now those cabinets have an amazing DIY concrete counter top!


I think everyone loves popsicles in the summertime. Bonnie from The Pin Junkie shared her homemade strawberry fruit bar recipe!


And Anjana from At The Corner Of Happy And Harried shared her recipe for creamy orange popsicles - yum!
