One word with Debra of Acquired Objects

Before I begin with my post I wanted to let you all know that Lisa, a new blogging friend who has a newer blog decided to feature me and my new store and did a brief interview. Hope you will stop over to take a peek. Its always great for a new blogger to get some love.....and I know she would be thrilled to hear from you. Click here to visit me at 16Lstreet blog to say hello after you read all about Debra!

Hi there! This morning I am delighted to have textiles dealer extraordinaire and a blog friend, Debra from Acquired Objects as my guest for One Word today. I am so happy that she is here. Debra lives in beautiful picturesque Vermont on a beautiful property and getting to see life through her eyes is always a huge treat and like a mini virtual getaway for me every time I visit her blog. Not to mention she reminds me of the joy found in the simple pleasures in life, like getting to plan her very own secret garden! She is fortunate to have her business on premise (in a beautifully restored carriage barn nonetheless)  and her things are truly spectacular. If you are not familiar with Debra and her store, Oreillers,  filled with textile treasures from the past then you must visit. I know when I am putting the finishing touches on my living room I will be taking a look at her exquisite antique pillows.

Click here to visit her store (get your bib on for the drooling that will take place)  and click here to visit her beautiful blog. Debra is someone I consider a friend and is I am sure we can all agree, is a  quality person who is supportive, kind and thoughtful. Someone who has very refined taste, a true vision and is a great supportive blog friend to many. We both have goldens, Dylan and Teddy, who could practically be long lost brothers with their "robust" frames and cheery personalities.  It was so great to get to know her better and suffice to say I am as big a fan as I ever was. Hope you too enjoy getting to know a little more about Debra. Thank you for stopping by and thank you Debra for being my guest today!
