Church Interior "After" Photos

As promised... I wanted to share with you some of the "after" photos
 of the church interior. We have eight shops leased now and another eight to go.
 I love the way it is all coming together.

This is our "Blessing Tree" that is in the entry of the church. It is the first thing you see when you come in. Visitors who make a donation of $1 can write something that they are thankful for on a card and hang it on the tree. All of the donations are given to Tri Lakes Cares, a local charity.

This is our self serve potpourri bar. You can scoop your own, or pick up a pre-packaged sachet in an organza bag. I found this great old, rusty sink and cut a hole in the top of an old buffet that I found on Craigslist. 

We have a nice seating area in front of the counter where you can help
yourself to  a cup of coffee or tea.

This is "Petticoats and Patina", one of my shops. It is full of really fun clothing and western boots. My husband built the aspen wall that you see in the background.

I have a new addiction appreciation for beautiful boots! That may explain why 
there are no size nines in the shop. Ha Ha!

This i"Dwell" which has a very urban farmhouse style. I LOVE the
old windmill blades!

"Cottage Chic" is such a fun little shop. I love this style, and if I ever am
lucky enough to have a little cottage by the water, this is what it will look like.

I know you are all wondering where  the "whites" are...."Belle Blanc"
(lovely whites) is full of nothing but. It is everyone's favorite shop.
It has three windows and a mantel, and makes you just want to lie down
 on the fluffy antique bed.

 This shop is still under construction but I just had to give you a sneak peek.
It is called "Stella's" and it is a journey back to the elegant
920s, 30s, and 40s. The clothing line is flirty and fun with cloche hats,
feathered headbands, and ruffled leggings. The shop is decorated like
 Stella's dressing room might have looked.

Here is our bit of bling. It looks so pretty when you see it at night from the
outside. The frame of the beautiful church window and the lighted tree
 and chandelier sparkling inside. I wanted to take a photo from the outside,
but we have had evening thunderstorms everyday for the past week.

Thank you so much for stopping in, I hope you have enjoyed this little tour. 
If you are ever in Colorado, I would love to have you stop by for a visit.
I will be joining Kathleen's White Wednesday at Faded Charm
Be sure to head over there for lots of creative inspiration.
