"D" is for Decorating Time

"D" is for Decorating Time

Dear Friends,
It's Decorating Time, my favorite part of the process. Once you have collected  your treasures from all the elements of RAW and RE-FIND  it's time to play, yippee. Incorporating collections into a space gives such warmth and sparkle. I love the way a found object speaks to a guest sharing a glimpse into the people who live in the home. I want to share with you today photos of  the Sweet Gang's Decorating Time for this weeks up coming show Raw and Re-Find. The doors open at 10am Thursday. You are gonna love this!

Hope you all have had a chance to enter the Sweet Before and After Contest. If not hurry over to Face Book and upload you photos. The VIP winners will be announced tomorrow afternoon. Good Luck!

Shine Coffee!

This Thursday, February 16th, Shine Coffee will create delicious coffee drinks for you to savor while enjoying your day at Sweet Salvage. They have two espresso bars housed inside a vintage Airstream trailer. You'll find them at events throughout the Phoenix area. They use authentic Italian espresso machines and individually grind each cup. They source their coffee beans locally from a small group of the finest Arizona roasters. Their teas and chai are the most delicious in the land. Their staff are trained baristas who love coffee and want you to enjoy every cup, latte or espresso you drink.  They will also be bringing local pastries -    apple pop tarts, carrot muffins and cinnamon cocoa coffee cake!

We look forward to adding some Shine to your day!

"N" is for Nostalgia

"N" is for Nostalgia

Dear Friends.
"N" is for Nostalgia. One of the reasons people begin collecting is a fondness of an era or childhood memory. It may be a toy, a book, a sign or souvenir from a place they visited, their mother's china or a tool from grandpa's farm. Whatever the reason the item resonates with something inside. Incorporating it into their home reflects who they are. Here are some photos of nostalgia that the Sweet Gang brought in for the Raw and Ref-Find Event.

I look so forward to seeing you this weekend at the Raw and Re-Find Event February 16th thru the 19th.  If you have not entered the Sweet Before and After Contest there's only two days left. The winners will be selected tomorrow afternoon.
