It sure was sad for me (and I'm sure many, many other ladies) to hear that Shabby Chic is no more. I never did have a chance to visit one of Rachel Ashwell's stores. It has been a dream of mine to visit the US to visit all the shops and flea markets I've been seeing on TV for years and I know that my first stop would have been to visit a Shabby Chic store! Unfortunately that isn't going to happen now.
What I will miss most is the absolutely gorgeous Shabby Chic fabrics. I have had so much Shabby Chic fabric over the last few years and I know I'll never see any as gorgeous as those.
I suppose the only thing now we have to look forward to is Rachel Ashwell's new book which I'm sure is going to be fabulous. I don't know much about it yet, but I'm certain I'll just have to buy it the moment it comes out in September this year!
