Rachel Ashwell... Shabby Chic Book Signing!!!

The Shabby girls..or shall I say The Shabby Queen with The Shabby Girl..

Rachel Ashwell... is a dream come true
I have been a Shabby Chic fan for over 17 years. I think most of us know what Shabby Chic is & how Rachel's beautiful dreamy style
transformed our interiors & changed the world of flea market shopping... I can go on & on about how much I love her style but what is more important is the woman who created all of this incredible beauty is just as beautiful as a person..I was honored to spend some time talking with her... and must say I was enamored listening to her as she gave her book presentation.. she is beautiful, down to earth, spiritual, & a little Shabby in a good way...wearing a pretty pink vintage top, faded jeans...worn out leather belt...sueded mutted out boots...crumpled big white leather bag.... Thank you Rachel for such a special time!!! You MUST own her new book for your collection it is a treasure just like her!!!! xooxoo Shabby Girl Laura



The Book Center ladies are super sweet & helpful... thank you for all your help ladies & saving me a seat in the first row...
lots of construction going on here.. a little Shabby road...
Oh this is the table? where is the beautiful Shabby Table covering?????


Oh there ya go... Rachel giving her heart felt book presentation... she is just beautiful!!!
Rachel getting ready for her book signing... love this table covering you can purchase it at her store....
I will always treasure Rachel's New Book for many years to come & will past it on to my daughter.... xooxxo Shabby Girl forever Laura

Dearest gorgeous Laura,

I feel so bad, I haven't been to visit you for a while, but the lovely thing is when ever I do visit your always doing such wonderful things.

You look so beautiful with Rachel Ashwell, you could be sisters.

I love your new ad and I have recently been introduced to Fifi as well, I think she is fantastic. What an incredible creative person she is.

I'm starting to think that your all a pretty creative bunch over there in the States. One day I am going to come over and join you.

Wishing you a wonderful week.

xxxx Coty
