Victoria's Antique Warehouse

My dining room is a work in progress. I am happy to say that we actually were able to have Christmas dinner in the Shabby Old House this year.
One of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house is the China Hutch.
I don't have it decorated exactly the way I want it but as you can see I am playing around with what I have there. I am all ears for suggestions.
I purchased this wonderful cabinet from my friend Vickie who is the owner of Victoria's Antique Warehouse in Leesburg Florida.
I will be posting for the next few days on this beautiful shop.
I have been taking pictures of the shop for years now and I have made a scrapbook that is filled with beautiful vinettes and fabulous European antiques.


Meet my friend Vickie. She recently started a blog and you can visit it as well as her website.
www.Victoriasantiquewarehouse.blogspot.com.


Just behind the french door is a warehouse of furniture, mantles, architectural pieces, old doors, French beds and armoires waiting for the masters touch. Her customers can browse the back and she will help you create that unique piece for your home.
Look at this fabulous mantle that has been created.


And then there is the shop. If you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere.
In fact when I visit the shop I always find myself not wanting to leave.
So if you are ever in the neighborhood of Leesburg. This is the shop that you simply must not miss. It is just off the main street and honey it is well worth the trip.

I will show you some more of her wonderful creations tomorrow.
I just may have her create a custom kitchen for me.
I have some great photos of the kitchen cabinets that she is making.
You won't want to miss this.

Your cabinet is great! I love the shop. I am always bringing more stuff home with no where to put it. I bet it would be impossible to leave that shop empty-handed.

Ooo, Becky~ like your fireplace, your hutch is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! It's given me inspiration for another cab I have, which is plain. I have some oval picture frames and I wonder if they'll fit over the doors...

Your friend's shop is divine. Wish I could come for a real visit right now!

...off to find a map...

Your dining room is beautiful! I love your hutch. I also adore your friends shop. I wish I lived near by! I can't wait to see more pictures from there. I bought my paint today to paint my armoire and I am looking forward to starting this coming week.

I could see myself in that shop for hours!! Thanks for visiting my blog, I am a frequent lurker to yours. Your B&B is beautiful and I so wish my bathroom looked like yours!! Using the sideboard for a sink is a fabulous idea.

Hi Becky,

I so envy you for having such a gorgeous white hutch. I would love to own a hutch like that to display all my china on. Maybe someday I will. Thanks for stopping by for a visit earlier today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.... Kim

Hi Becky!

Oh my gosh, I didn't know about this blog of yours!! I kept going back to The Rose Lake one and never saw it updated. Hehe! Remember, I'm a blonde at heart. Love that hutch. It is so gorgeous. I need one of those..I don't own a hutch but it seems teh only reason I would want one is because it's yet another place I can decorate in! Lol!

Hi Becky,
Oh my goodness, that hutch is beautiful!! I do have a question for ya, I can't tell what color your walls are, chocolate or burgandy?? I love it, do you like the darker color on the walls? I have been thinking about chocolate on my walls in the dining rm but I don't know yet. I can't wait to see the cabinets she is making, her store looks like trouble to me (;
