rachel ashwell...oh how i love thee.
check out this bed, it's just adorable. she says in her book she loves a bed that looks just as inviting un-made as it does made. and i have to agree with her totally. i just discovered today that she is the one that designs the "shabby chic" line at target, which would explain why i love all of it.

This one is all of the above, but we added the other women. Great Mam-maw Easter, Grandma Cathy, and Me. After the nursing home we went back to Doug and Easter’s to relax. Later that night the rest of the family came over. Greg has two brothers. One has two daughters and the other has three daughters and four sons. So the house was packed! We had some delicious food, great grab bags, and lots of laughs. When the excitement was over, we got everything packed in the Jeep so we could, again, leave first thing in the morning. Caroline was a great traveling baby. Kylie drove 80 on the way home so it only took us 7.5 hours. I couldn’t complain, I was ready to be home too. So after a long weekend of traveling, family, and fun, I’m beat! It’s now 8:30 and it’s the first time I’ve sat down since we got home this afternoon. I usually dread this time of year because it’s so much in one week but it’s always worth it in the end. I’ve married into an excellent family and I’m so thankful to have the Millers and Daniels in my life. They love me like their family and I love them like mine. And that’s what makes it worth it.

is something i'm frequently told by my husband. i wanted to share some pictures of my salon. i love my shop and how everything looks. it's not something everyone can appreciate, but i don't care. it makes me happy. i have a dream of a new salon some day in a building that i own and it will have a completely different look. i'll share that inspiration in another blog.
this is part of my waiting area
this is our check out counter. i absolutely love it. it used to be in my mom's antique shop as her register, and now i have it. it's special and fantastically great!
she's the blonde in the bunch. when she started working with me she had long blonde hair and we cut it off short and dyed it brown. now we've turned her back in the a HOT blonde and cut her some FANTASTIC bangs. she's an amazing stylist with lots of talent. i am so glad to have her in my team. not to mention i love her to death!
here's the brunette! she's so darn cute. she's always the brunette that rocks the platinum blonde chunks. she's had long, short, and a-symmetrical hair. she's currently rocking the "side swipe", but you can't tell from this pic. she's also an amazing stylist with lots of talent. i'm so very happy to have her working with me too. we're very similar in our styles and it's great to have a friend that loves the same things i love and understand that they're cool not weird. i also love her!
i hope you like my salon. it's totally me and it's out there, but hey i love it. i love my job and the girls i work with. i'm so blessed to have found the job i love and the people that make everyday fun. my favorite part of the day is when i spin the chair around and my client says "i LOVE it! thanks maggie!" not only do i make them look great, but i turn their average day into a day where they are confident in themselves. and that's what it's all about.

but i'm going to try! today, i stepped into a store in dectur and it felt like a dream. my dear dear friend casey (www.caseydavis.etsy.com) sells her handmade jewelry there and told me i would love it. after weeks of wanting to go i finally made it! unfortunately i only had 10 mins to look. i was dying over it. it truly is my dream. i want to have a store like this with my sister annie. abbie too, but she's a chiropractor, so that won't happen. i absolutely love my job, but i think this is my dream. mostly because i grew up helping my mom with shows and her shop and i just would LOVE to have a cute store like that. a store that everyone goes to and talks about and always comes to to pick up a gift for their family and friends. a store that people travel from other towns to come and shop. oh my how i want this so bad. ok, so you want to know the store right? it's called tournesol. it's a mother and daughter. they used to have separate shops but now they are combined. it's adorable. they're website is www.tournesolretold.com it doesn't even do the store justice. they had the cutest things from garden to jewelry to candles to papers to baby items. in the words of rachel zoe "ba-nan-as!" "i die." oh goodness. i wish i had my camera to take pictures and share. but believe me it's beautiful.
