Our latest displays:

Yesterday and today we decorated, displayed, re-did the windows to make room for our newest finds. It was so much fun and the time went so fast. Creating new displays is one of the most fun things about working in our store. Customers love to see our latest vignettes (and so do I).
Nothing like redoing displays in the shop to get your mojo going. We had so much fun! It's loads of work but so worth it.

Mixing twigs with dried hydrangeas makes a wonderful statement. I watched Debbi, our decorator extraordinaire, work her magic on the arrangement. She's amazing!

We'll be revamping the whole store: Rehanging chandeliers, adding and moving paintings, pictures and more!

One of my favorite chests is the one below with the large English Blue Willow platter in the drawer. This is a wonderful chest of drawers, turn-of-the-century 1900 with the most wonderful patina - once again, aged to perfection!
Come visit us and check out the entire store. We're painting the cottage in our back garden area and will be decorating and furnishing it later this week.
