One week ago, I shared a little
sneak peek from my photo shoot
at Timeless Menagerie / The Shopkeeper's Inn
for the current issue of
Where Women Create Business.
The subject of the feature is
my wonderfully talented and beautiful friend,
Lori Smithers. And Bitsy. Mustn't forget Bitsy...
First I'll share the photos from the
gorgeous upstairs B&B ( The Shopkeeper's Inn ),
followed by some shop photos ( Timeless Menagerie ).
Many thanks to Jo Packham, Brandy Shay,
and Lori herself for making this project
a joy from start to finish!
Right on West Main, here in Fredericksburg, Texas.
Shop downstairs, lodging upstairs.
You can find Lori's shop HERE
One of the gorgeous bedrooms.
Lori decorated The Shopkeeper's Inn with
a mixture of antiques and new pieces and linens
from Rachel Ashwell's collections.
Who doesn't love a transom window?
Each room has a distinct character all its own.
Many of the antique pieces have been
refinished and painted using Annie Sloan Chalk Paints,
which Lori stocks in the shop downstairs.
Above, a fab example of a grand old piece
given new life via Annie Sloan paint.
Lori and the gals at Timeless Menagerie
teach Annie Sloan workshops on a regular basis.

Nothing but the best!
You know you're in Texas.....
And then some photos of Lori in her office
downstairs inside the shop.
CEO of all things magical and wonderous, Bitsy.

So much beauty!
And speaking of beauty....
Lori's precious Frenchie, Bitsy.
And nobody but nobody ever made a Rachel Ashwell
sofa look this darn good.

So thank you for taking a peek
at the latest issue of
Where Women Create Business!
I've completed two more shoots for Stampington,
another for Where Women Create Business,
one for Where Women Create, and an upcoming one
for Where Women Cook. These are all exceptionally
high quality publications, produced with love by a group
of folks who genuinely love
seeing women succeed and shine.
Back soon with news about another magazine feature,
