Reclaiming Style

Dear Friends,

Are you ready to have some fun? This month, it's all about sharing with you the Sweet Gang's tips on
Reclaiming Style. Before and after photos, surprise design elements presented by each designer, unique re-purposed home decor, reclaiming, reusing and redoing is the name of the game. We invite you to come play with us. The Reclaiming Style event is February 21st-24th. 

Have you ever wondered how the Sweet Gang puts together each event? How they choose a theme? What their design process is? Where they junk and how they transform their treasures. Have you ever thought, "If only I could be a fly on the wall"? Well, this month, as part of the Reclaiming Style Event, Sweet Salvage has installed a time lapse camera to share the process with you. A true sneak peek, exciting. I can't wait to see the finished video which I will post for all of you. Keep checking back throughout the month for inspiration and tips on how to reclaim your style.

Sweetville, USA

 Dear Friends.
  Oh darling throw on some overalls, buy me a pig, plant me a garden I am moving to Sweetville. If ever I have dreamed of having my own urban farm I now know that dreams can come true if even just for a weekend at Sweet Salvage. I am inspired beyond words by the simple yet beautiful farm life that is so authentically portrayed at this month's Sweet Salvage Green Acres event. The casual elegance of farm style living has me rethinking my addiction to the local market. Fresh produce, farm raised eggs, a large table full of family and friends gathering for the seasons harvest. No television, no computers, no cell phones...okay maybe that's a little to far but my own urban garden here in the heart of town is a wondrous thought. A simple connection to nature amongst the hustle and bustle of modern day life. A retreat into days gone by, oh how inspiring. The Sweet Gang by far this month has created a wonderful atmosphere which invokes a curiosity in me, could I? should I? I know that whether you have ever asked your self about your ability to have an urban farm, have fond childhood memories of country life or even if you're a city folk at heart you will enjoy the bounty of Sweetville this month.

Darling I Love You But Give Me Sweet on 7th Ave

 Dear Friends,
  Oh how I love a little sparkle and bling. The vintage clothing displayed this month has me swooning with delight. I am dreaming of a beautiful dressing room filled with designer gowns, to die for shoes and a glamorous vanity where I could powder my nose under the glistening lights of an amazing chandelier anticipating a romantic night on the town. It is simply enchanting.
Well Park Avenue may be hundreds of miles away but the Sweet Gang has brought the magic of the Big Apple right here. Open, Open, Open if I do say so myself.

Acres of Green

 Dear Friends,
  I am green with garden envy. Beauty surrounds me as I gaze upon the secret gardens created by the Sweet Gang for this month's Green Acres Event, January 17th-20th. French beds that beckon you to relax as you read the latest novel. Farm tables set for entertaining in the finest of farmhouse house style. Architectural elements from around the world who have been aged to perfection. Ornate iron work and patio furniture waiting to be enjoyed on a warm spring night. The possibilities are endless and so inspiring. Here is your first peek.
