How does the old classic
Disney song go?
"a dream is a wish
your heart makes....."
When dreams inch their way ever closer,
to the point where they are
just within your grasp,
how do you respond?
Do you embrace them, or run away?
I've found myself wrestling with this
very question in recent months.
Dreams coming true,
Every ounce of me wants to encourage
and embrace them with a hearty welcome.
But that inner nemesis,
the Greek chorus which resides within
and tells me that I am not good enough,
not smart enough, not savvy enough,
And I run. I hide. I quit.
Yes, sometimes that voice wins.
I find myself stopping,
literally halting in my tracks,
and questioning all that I know
to be true about me.
That I am enough.
So much more than enough.
Not only am I equal to the challenges,
but I am capable of so much more
than I ever imagined.
I then realize that I have
the power to silence those voices,
and ever so tentatively,
I move forward.
Baby steps at first,
more confident strides later on.
Dreams are coming true.
Wishes are becoming reality.
And God is in control.

another FUN photo shoot
at just one of the MANY
delightful, divine and completely darling
shops right here in Fredericksburg, Texas.
This time up at bat....
This shop has a special place in my heart,
as not only have I sold there,
but I think the owners Debbie and Jennifer
are just the bees knees.
401 E. Auguste,
Fredericksburg, TX 78624
Coming soon....new pics from the latest
Carol Hicks Bolton shopping trip to the
brocantes of France!
If you would like professional photos
taken of your shop for use on your website,
Facebook page, blog or in print ads,
please contact me for more info.
Texas Residents only, unless you
plan on paying my air-fare and accommodations. ;-)

Well, hello there,
sweet little neglected blog.
I've missed you.
But my, oh my....
the adventures I've been having
while you've been patiently awaiting
Just look where I was last week.
At a photo shoot for the enchanting
shop in Fredericksburg, Texas,
So while you might not hear from me as often,
I am busier and happier than ever.

Pinch me, it finally happened!
After completing several rounds of photographing my own house,
doing the Q&A with the magazine,
then just sitting tight and for the most part,
keeping my lips zipped,
( damn, that part was HARD )
I can finally let it out...
Our home is featured in the brand new, June 2013 Issue
of Cottages and Bungalows Magazine!
You can find it on newsstands now!
Yep, all the magazine photos are
intentionally a bit blurry...
can't have you reading the whole thing here,
and NOT rushing out
to the newsstand to grab it there, right?
All in all,
I was given four pages where I share
my secrets to successful flea market decorating,
with tips and ideas for anyone wanting to
incorporate a little flea market style
into their own dwellings.
In my excitement to get this project done,
I realized after the fact that I had actually
sent two different sets of very similar images
to the magazine for the issue.
That's why some of the original images I'm sharing
here are very similar, but somewhat different than
the ones in the June Issue.
But here's the exciting part...
the great folks at Beckett Media are going to
do an even MORE extensive feature on our home in
an upcoming issue of Flea Market Decor!
Thank you to the beautiful, kind, and incredibly
talented Editor Jickie Torres for making this happen.
You know that I heart you.
And thanks to all of you,
for taking this tour,
and in a much larger sense, this journey with me.
There's LOTS more to share in this grand
old 103 year old gal we live in,
and I plan on giving y'all all sorts of peeks
in the weeks ahead.
Have a wonderful week!
