Fixer Upper Style

Do any of you watch the show Fixer Upper on HGTV?  It's my favorite home renovation show.  The couple that host it are Chip and Joanna Gaines.  They are talented, fun and on top of the have a great testimony of putting faith and family first in their lives.
I love Joanna's style because of it's homey, comfortable look.  She takes old things, puts them into a new place and gives them new life!
Because I like that look, you know I like wandering around antique stores and flea markets. 
I was excited when I heard that Liz Marie, of Liz Marie Blog was opening a store about 15 minutes from my home. She has a style that is a lot like Joanna Gaines.  Liz has a huge following on her blog and has been featured in Country Living Magazine.  She grew up nearby and has recently moved back after her husband finished his military career.
The Grand Opening of the store was Thursday - Saturday.  Heather and I decided we needed to check it out on Friday.

Isn't this a cute storefront?  I like the name of the store too.





 As you can see the store was full of people.



These are my purchases. The frame has glass in it, so you can write messages with a dry erase marker and then just wipe it off.  The wooded box is just cute to set out, and I always like ironstone dishes.

We had fun and will be back!

Thanks for posting Liz Marie's site. I put it on my feed. I have Chip and Jo on my feed too. I have watched all their shows. I like her style too.

I like the things you bought at Liz Marie. So you like ironstone. You probably like only white. I would give you a yellow set if you lived nearby. I need to get rid of dishes.

Your finds are wonderful. I would have loved wandering that store with you and Heather. Then I would have needed a snack and coffee, haaaahha ... xoxo

I do watch the show, Fixer Uppers, from time to time and enjoy it a lot. The woman is a very talented designer and decorator and I love the style. Looks like the store opened by Liz Marie is off to a roaring start! Enjoy your purchases.

Looks like you found some new treasures. I love rambling around stores like this to see what's hidden treasure I can find.

Chip and Joanne are a breath of fresh air. A safe place on TV.
I love these kind of stores.I wish we had more in our area.

I've never seen the show but I'll look out for it next time I'm in the States. Although it's not my look, I'm not really into rustic stuff I do enjoy the talent and creativity behind the work.

My favorite decorating show as well Mari. I also enjoy Tarek and Christina on Flip or Flop. Christina has a real eye for what works in decorating a flip house. I am trying not to buy anything except things for our proposed farm house. I really have enough decorating items that I should be able to do minimal buying of knick knacks and I can spend my money on furniture.

Also, I agree about the Gaine's; they are amazing. Love that they share their belief's in God. :)

I love Chip and Joanna and their show also. You and Heather must have had a great time looking around at this shop. I adore your purchases. You'll have to share with us the next time you go. By the way, it was 9 degrees when I woke this a.m.!!!

I love "Fixer Upper" too! And I can watch it on youtube here in Argentina :)
You'll have to let me know what town "The Found Cottage" is in so I can check it out this summer when we are back in the states. Looks like fun!
