A New Start....2011




We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
And its first chapter is New Year's Day.


~Edith Lovejoy Pierce



This has long been a favorite of mine as I realize that, yes, I write each chapter of my life. Here's to writing a best seller!!!

Have a Pheasant Season!

Greta came in the shop one day and we were having our nice little conversation when all of a sudden she spots the vintage pheasant taxidermy on top of one of our cupboards. After cursing me soundly, she explains that now she will have to redo her entire Christmas tree and feature this fellow (instead of her owl). She pays and trots off, pheasant tucked under arm.
Several weeks later, she emails these pictures and I just had to share.


Holy Moses, can you believe this??




Time and time again, I'm told that I "just have so much talent" in the decorating realm. Well I'm here to say that I have nothing on my customers !!
My own scrawny, little Charlie Brown tree is currently only dressed in lights.
( I'm just positive I'll get around to adding those bells & whistles here in the next two days! Uh-huh)
Thanks for sending the pictures, Greta! I love seeing what magic people weave with purchases from good goods.
Oh and......3 shopping days 'til Christmas...
Enjoy,
Cheri

Delightful objects to give.........

OK. More boxes have been arriving and although they are not all unpacked as yet....thought I should show you something new!

Lots of scarves


Darling wee cages, books and our favorite clips were in stock finally!


Fun stone coasters showing the construction of the Eiffel Tower.



Our ridiculously popular candles are restocked. They are selling fast, again!

There are new wire baskets, number key chains, signs, notepads, wire frames, our beloved dragonflies, cloches, simple iron candlesticks--that's just off the top of my head. I promise to post more as we get it out.

Take care-

I wanted to post some pictures from the shop and one of our recent open houses. The quality isn't the best as they were all taken with my phone. Hmmmmm- I guess you'll have to come in for a better look..............!























Enjoy the weather and its ability to force us to slow down!!
Best,
Cheri
