Personal Shopper





Don't you love a friend
who becomes 
your personal shopper?

My sweet friend, Eric,
works at the antique shop
where our booth is located.

The other day 
when I was in the shop,
he told me something came in 
with one of the other dealers
and he thought
  I might like it.

OMG,
he was right!


Look at this handsome tassel.












The horse
head top
is a heavy
metal,
maybe
spelter?






















For now, the tassel is hanging
on the back of the front door.
Love it! Thanks so much, Eric!


(P.S. If anyone knows where I can buy more of these, please let me know!)

Love that tassel! It's just perfect for you. I love when friends grab that just right something. Every now and again, I'll see the perfect something for my BFF, and instead of snapping a pic and texting it to her, I just snap it up. Thanks for sharing.

What a great friend to present you with such a lovely gift. The tassel is beautiful and it's so perfect for your home!

I love, love the velvet pumpkins in your post below. I have held off of ordering, think I would make some of these (I already have velvet pieces of fabric), but am wondering how it will ever be fit in.

Nice friend for shopping hon...I love that horse head with tassel, that's you pal!... and your riding boots! How did I miss this post, you're a fast one! Great stuff!
The pumpkin tart has a chocolate tart, which is great and the filling is just pumpkin and other sweet things. The recipe came from Martha Stewart book, it is yummy! Thanks for your very appreciated visit my sweet friend. FABBY
