Our featured artist is Lorraine Spenle' who owns the shop RUFFLES AND ROSES located at 1652 Main Street in Chatham MA 02669

and her phone is 508 945 5955 at her shop. As you can see her shop is filled with romantic linens and furniture and lovely objects for the home. She was featured in ROMANTIC HOMES with a seven page spread and when you look at these wonderful photographs you can see why.

Lorraine has been collecting for years and displayed and sold her offerings in group shops renting space for a long time but one day she spotted this precious shop and dove right in and it has been a great success. Lorraine has had a wonderful time decorating her beautiful shop and it shows.

Lorraine inherited some beautiful linens and other vintage goods from her grandmere' who had Rachel Ashwell's style long before Rachel was an every day name in decorating.

I love Lorraine's decorating and her beautiful array of lovely items. I hope you enjoy the photographs. If you should see something that captures your heart be sure to contact Lorraine. I know she would be delighted to hear from you and please leave a comment in my blog.

Hi Pat, wonderful feature of Lorraine and her shop. I could really enjoy shopping there. I love the flower bed and each display is so inviting.

I have also shared your giveaway trays. Thanks again, I love them and they look wonderful in my kitchen. Have a great weekend.

What a lovely and charming shop! Thank you for sharing it.

I have tagged you for a meme. There's no pressure. It's an invitation just for fun and to get to know you. You may refuse if you're not up to doing it. If you've already done it, please show me where it is, or you can do it again if you want to.

Hi Pat,
Thank you for stopping by my blog (at Nest to Keep) and for inviting me to yours. I love all of your pictures, and your featured artist one is lovely! And okay, now it's my turn to be jealous! :) I love Lorraine's shop, and would love to live near it!

Isn't blogging great? Otherwise we would never know such kind people and fantastic shops existed!
I'll be sure to pop in again soon! :)
