26 days and counting. . .


I ran across this vintage box and could not resist posting it on her to share with my new blogging friends in our beloved south...us Yankee Girls can scrap (junk) too! Come on up to the Country Living show next month and you will see. Can't wait to meet Y'ALL!!!

Ahh...the last days of summer...red, ripe tomatoes, local festivals starting, singing cicadas, apple orchards abundant with fruit and eager visitors wanting to pluck that just right sun-ripened gem. Is summer really almost over? Not for me...I will stretch it out as long as possible, but alas, in the retail world things work a little differently.

And so Fall and Halloween finds are starting to "squirrel" their way into the shop. (Did you like that cheesy symbolism?) Like these golden orchard pears.

Still plenty of time for a late summer gathering though. Fill this vintage thermos with fresh flowers for a one of a kind vase.

Beautiful sunflowers!

Fall berry stems in urn and some beautiful vintage English china.

I love the look of this bleached wood rocker, the finish (or lack of) lends itself to a Scandinavian look.

Darling little drysink cupboard.

A gathering of goods.

A great painted flatwall cupboard.

A fantastic old carpenter's cupboard. Original paint.


Portal mirrors and a lush wreath you could hang now and leave through all the holidays.

Orchard apple stems in sleek cube vase on wine storage table.

Another fireplace fireplace insert with great design.

I found some wonderful mirrors recently, this is just two of them.

A collection of vintage glass pitchers.

Vintage trunk, rug and petite wicker plant stand (not just for plants!)

White flatwall cupboard with doors.

I got the bags today, they are great. I was not paying a lot of attention
the other day and did not realize it was you. Then when I pulled up the site I
saw it was in Thornville and I wondered, then when I got the email after I
place the order I recognized the email and I realized it was you. I love
your site, it is beautiful. Caroline loved the bag and I thought "I am going
to order that for her birthday next month" then I was bad and ordered one for
myself - of course now I can't use mine until I give her hers!
Thanks for your business and I am glad we could give some to you!
