I was invited to one of my friends baby shower in Douglasville, Ga. Lately I am surrounded by expecting, and new moms. I wonder if I am next, lol!!! Anyways, I got to the house where the baby shower was taking place, and Oh My! what a surprise. Instead of being super exited by the party and the whole baby vibe, I was astonished to what I was seeing. I felt I was in a movie set for Moulin Rouge, or a Dita Von Teese burlesque show.
This home was magical. I felt in a different time, like I went back to 1920’s or to a French cabaret, in a good way. The whole house had such an intense energy that you couldn’t ignore. From feathers, to pearls, intense red walls and ceilings, all kinds of jewelry, paintings, fabrics, antique doors and floors, gorgeous bathrooms, chandeliers, wall papers, hats, furs, mirrors…. I was enchanted by this magical place. I felt like in a candy store, I wanted to dress up and play like a little girl.
While everyone was enjoying the baby shower games, I was taking pictures and submerging myself in this wonderland. I must say I felt a little bit ashamed of myself because I did not pay much attention to the party. Instead I sat with the owner of the house and chatted with her for a long time. Off course I had to ask her: Where did you get all of this stuff from? she laughed and said, let me tell you my secret dear: Goodwill and some antique fairs.
I must say that I already knew about Goodwill, but know I am definitely doing most of my shopping there!!!!
