Karen and Chester doggie are remaining exactly where they have been the last three years -  the shops of Daniel Boone in Hillsborough.  The shop will have a new name  
 Karan's former partner, the incredibly talented Kara and the shop name "Spruce" are relocating to her new shop in Durham.  No doubt you will want to visit there too!

Now come and take a look at some of the gorgeousness going on at "  FETCH"
(cute name huh?!) 

wonderful vintage table in white with breathtaking white chairs...

Karan and her amazing friend Deb demanded that i remove my handbag from the settee for this picture...  they said it looks like I forgot to remove it before I shot the photo... but I decided not to listen to them and leave it on anyway because i'm just as bossy as they are, and i'm doing the blog, and because the soft pink color looks so pretty on this versatile comfy little settee... and hey, don't alot of us just set our handbags down on our cute little settees when we walk in?
 well... that is... if we have a cute little settee like this!

 ok..., ok... here it is with my handbag removed and a yummy pillow - Karan has tons of fabulous pillow covers in the shop right now... 
and this little settee looks good with almost any color!
just look at that wonderful aged chippy paint on the frame

And do you want to see something amazing, that no one else around here has?  Check out these orbs handmade from roots... How cool are these???

Yummy yummy old doors....

...I lOVE this table...

See this fabulous old window - Karen has two this size, and two smaller ones - 
...for now that is... 
i bet they won't last long...
i took the glass out of mine, and used just the frames, but imagine them with an old etched vintage mirror in them flanking your bed, they'd make such a statement

With all the changes going on... there will be tons of new goodies added... so come on by and visit, and watch your emails for a link to the blog so you can see first hand some of the unique and fun things that will be appearing at "FETCH"!
