My Home


This is a collection of pictures I’ve taken of my home over the years. I tried to put the most recent at the top! It’s always a “work in progress.” I don’t think I’ll ever finish! Just when it’s perfect, my desires and ideas evolve…

We are working on a renovation in our master bedroom right now and it’s coming together amazingly. A couple more weeks and I’ll make the big reveal!

This Week’s Arrivals


The first week at A Vintage Affair has been a great success! I dropped in on Friday and the shop was buzzing with customers! Already several pieces were sold and some were on hold while patrons and designers measured and considered. I’m so pleased! It’s been like I’ve re-awakened after a long period of hibernation. I’m feeling inspired as the weather warms and decorating the house for spring fills my thoughts! The feedback and interactions with my customers are so rewarding. It’s nice to hear the joy when someone finds that special piece they’ve been searching for. I’m right back considering and wondering “What am I going to bring the following week!!”

Thinking about how the weeks roll around, I thought I would try to post all the new arrivals on the webite and blog on Saturdays. Those items going to A Vintage Affair will be delivered  on Sunday morning. Speaking of, A Vintage Affair has decided to open on Sundays from 12noon to 4pm starting this March 11th. This is a great thing! Not only is it free parking, but Sundays are good to do favorite laid back stuff….like shopping! Yay!

Here are this week’s arrivals. Prices and details on the website (click on “Go Treasure Hunting” at the top or The Honey B’s Logo in the lower right hand column).



Have a great week…I’ll be busy, busy getting more great furniture items prepared! Thanks for sharing and I love your comments!


Honey B’s Moving Day!


Good day everyone! Monday, March 5th is the day my shop, Honey B’s at Home launches for 2012! I’ve got great things happening….buying trips, new digs, new ideas, crafts, upholstering, painting projects and travel plans to Paris! All that is positive and fun! I think it’s going to be a great year!

I’m excited to have made a connection with “A Vintage Affair” a fabulous pop-up vintage clothing shop in the design district of Calgary! Honey B’s items are going to be available for purchase during regular business hours now. It’s been sometimes difficult to have the availability for some of my customers to come and see my showroom at home, so this is the perfect solution to solve all the complications that come with it. Come and see my stock at A Vintage Affair, you don’t want to miss a minute of this great shopping experience. Vintage clothing, jewellery & accessories are their specialty. They are located at 638 – 11th Avenue S.W. Calgary, Alberta (right on the corner) and the hours are: Monday thru Saturday 10am – 5:30pm. Telephone: (403) 835-6697

Sunday, March 4th was our official “move-in” day for Honey Bs and we had so much fun! I am really happy to be affiliated with Theresa and Bonnie, they are most gracious, kind, accommodating and friendly…I can’t say enough about how wonderful they are. The store is absolutely fabulous with quality clothing from the 50’s and 60’s. It’s a trip down nostalgic lane. The dresses, jewelry and accessories are to die for! Here are a few photos of our moving adventure!

First arrivals of Honey B’s items

These are just a few of the pieces that have moved into A Vintage Affair. I’ve got oodles of other really, really nice finds that I can’t wait to get to and transform. I have to say, the years of doing this type of thing has really paid off in my skills…I’ve never enjoyed it as much as I do now! The quality, beauty and lasting finishes have stepped up a notch and I’m having more fun than ever!

Check the “Store” for a look see! Have a fantastic week and I’ll have more to post next week!  Barb
