Roses and Vintage French Wallpaper

I am skipping ahead of myself~but I have lots of photos to edit before I can show you the last day of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ training classes~so I am sharing what happened when I got home from class yesterday.  It was my fifth wedding anniversary and Mr. MD got me two dozen shell pink roses.
In addition, the vintage french wallpaper I ordered for my shop had arrived!
 These papers will be used to line the backs of pretty cabinets in the shop~
 This one has a slight metallic shimmer across the scrolls with pink and white flowers~on a grass cloth background
 This one is pale periwinkle blue with rosettes scattered in Monet-ish  style painting~
Oui Oui~from France!
 Hub's mom isn't the best photographer so we laugh while she tries to steady 
the camera and aim at never seems to work! We were headed out to dinner to celebrate our anniversary.
 try again...
 a little better....
oh no, more crooked....ok, thats a wrap!
Our rings are inscribed Happily Ever After

We have a nice happy life together~
and he's the reason I am able to take this big giant step in life~
Maison Decor, the store!
  Excuse my mushiness~but its true.
Tomorrow I will be back on the horse and headed to the shop~it will be vintage chandies and painting of clocks and filing my sign application and trying to get a handle on the growing inventory! You should see some of the awesome french home accessories I have that just came in~like wonderful zinc drying racks!
Until tomorrow~and don't forget to enter the Darphin French Skin Care line I am hosting~click here if you missed it to enter!

  15. Hi Amy,
    Congratulations on both your store and your wedding anniversary. You have lots of good things going on and I am happy for you!


  16. Congratulations on your store, sounds like you are having a lot of fun. Your anniversary roses are so pretty, love that color.

  17. You should say your MIL is trying to be artistic by taking your pictures crooked (like a lot of bloggers do). lol

    Happy 5th Anniversary. You look like newlyweds. :)

    I've been married over 23 years and we spent 10 years estranged and have just reunited last November. I can appreciate the hard work it takes to make a marriage sturdy. Sometimes it's hard to forget the hurt and move on and sometimes I think of it as a dream.

    Keep on being happy ever after....

  18. Happy Anniversary, Amy! Love that periwinkle wallpaper ~ very pretty!

  19. Romance...blah, blah, bah....
    Happiness...blah, blah, blah....
    I'll be back in 9 days, so get ready!

  20. Great Photo of you guys!!! Very sweet...Roses are Beautiful !!! Love the wall paper too.

  21. You two are just so stinkin' adorable, Amy! Congratulations on your special day! You are so blessed to be married to such a romantic guy. They're hard to find! :) (I think we both got the last two....) lol!

    xoxo laurie

  22. He he, that's a wrap, made me roll around laughing. I am the main photograper in my family and whenever someone take a pic of me it is just like your experience....frustrating but kind of funny too. Happy 5th! Lovely roses too.

  23. Happy anniversary! Beautiful roses and wallpaper. (Betsey's comment cracks me up.)

  24. Happy Anniversary . . . at least she got a nice pic of the lamp!!

  25. Amy,
    You have touched me like no other blogger. Maybe it is your kindmess, or your enthusiasm, or courage for staring your fantasy job, your talent?

    I am delighted you took the AS course and we can talk about the things you are working on for me.
    Is there any of that first wall paper still available and will you share how to order it?
    I have been looking for the
    "sick room" paper and this looks so
    lovely. It is the first one you show- vintage french.

  26. Happy anniversary! I love a good love story. I think it's awesome! Wishing you many many more happy years together!

  27. Congratulations! May this 5th Anniversary be just the beginning of more wonderful years to come :-)

  28. Even though the pictures may be a tad crooked, you two look very "Happily Ever After".....

    Romance... that describes your life right charmingly romantic in your personal and professional life....So great that you are now living out "your fairy tale"...Dreams do come true!

    The roses are incredibly exquisite and so is the wallpaper...Have a wonderful week!

  29. well you are living in a fairytale,but quite honestly i think you both are keepers. its nice in a world so full of darkness and stuff to read along with a true real life great love story. ive got to stop watching soooo much news lol
