What makes your heart flutter?

One of the greatest joys of owning two antique and gift stores is the treasure hunt ! When pursuing the hunt you never know how things are going to go. I find myself thinking back to when I was a little girl fishing with my dad. One thing that has always been the same since I was born - I love to talk-love to communicate. My dad would often have to say--shhhhh Stacey-be quiet and patient and the catch will come to you. Sometimes we caught allot and sometimes we caught few but we almost ALWAYS caught something. Treasure hunting is so the same. The curiousity always builds such excitement within me-will I find lots or will I find few??? Oh my gosh has this last week and a half been THE BIG CATCH! It has been a blast ! From a couple of great estate sales to an auction that simply left me squealing I have so remembered how fun it was to be that little girl that came home with a stringer full of a big catch...I just love my life-my dad would be proud even though I still can't be quiet ! :>)
The cream of this current crop is a gorgeous set of French Empire bedroom furniture ! (even though I must admit my secret-the old fish stringer loaded with old rusty keys made my heart flutter the very most )
So do share...what are your favorite finds of late-what makes your heart flutter?
Come out to the Hen House and Roost and check out the recent finds-you will not be disappointed !



  1. Is the above piece still available in your store? I am looking for a piece for my daughter's nursery and this looks precious!

  2. Amanda,

    The blue chest has sold but the French Empire piece is still available. We do have a new piece in the store that is similiar in size and color to the blue chest. Just let me know could email you more pictures.
    Thanks Stacey

  3. Hi Stacey,

    Thanks for the quick response! The piece I was looking at looks kind of white/pink...are we talking about the same one? And yes, I'd love if you could send me pictures of the chest you currently have! Thanks so much!


  4. Amanda,

    I am not sure if we are talking about the same piece of furniture. I am enclosing my email. If you will send me an email describing the kind of things you may be looking for and I will email you some pictures.
    Thanks Stacey
