Happiness is a Choice

Mirror in Entry Hall

What a wonderful time of the year!!!!  I hope each and everyone of you have the most wonderful Christmas and the New Year brings you more happiness than you have ever known. Happiness is a choice!!  Billy and I  have chosen to take what God has permitted us to use and be happy and content with His blessings.

A Touch of Christmas

Just a touch of Christmas but enough to remind you of our" Christmas Open House" which is coming up.  On Dec. 2, which is on a Thursday, we will open promptly at 10 a.m. Shown in this picture are some pillows from our bedding line and a wonderful pair of old freestanding windows that you will  love.  The windows are white on the reverse side and have wonderful wavy glass in the panes. There is another window that goes with these and any of the windows can be bought separately.  Hopefully we will have more inspirations to help you with your Christmas decorating. The house is full of surprises to help you get ready for a fun holiday.

We feel blessed to be in a business where our customers become our friends.  That is the reason we open our home during the holidays  to our "old and new" friends.  See you soon!!

The Thrill of Christmas

I know ----we haven't had Thanksgiving yet but I am so excited about our Christmas Show I can't keep it to 
myself!!!! We are doing a completely different look for this show and I know you are going to enjoy seeing some new ideas. We will keep you posted on how things are progressing and also show you a few pictures as we get closer.  The show will be on Dec. 2 and as you well know it is always on a Thursday.  Get the date on your calendar and invite your friends. Let me know if you need directions.

Black and White

We are very slow learners!!! This is our first post where we have scanned a photo and then inserted it into our blog.  I know that sounds fairly simple to most people but to us that is a big accomplishment.

Another big accomplishment is being able to get everything ready for the upcoming Marburger Show.  We are just about ready and are really looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful displays that all of the vendors have worked on so long and hard.  Believe me there is not other place you will be able to see so much inspiration.

The photo above is of our family room when it was done completely in white with just a touch of black.  One of my favorites.  I hope you can tell a little about it. Our Christmas show is in the back of my mind.  I already have ideas on what we will be doing so just put EARLY Dec. on your calendar and I will post a date as soon as we return from Marburger.  Hope to see you there.  Tent A, Booth Aa7

It is common knowledge that decorating styles reflect the inner feelings of a person. I have learned that it is possible, by simply viewing a shop or a room, that  you can leave knowing something about the person that decorated it without even talking to them.  I have missed some but most of the time I am pretty close. I think it is really neat to be able to express your feelings and emotions and even your passion by decorating and designing a group of items. I will give you a little hint how the picture above reflects my personality!! The reflection  showing  more than one side of the garden statue brings to my mind  how important  it is to acknowledge that all people have their own way of showing their creative abilities.

Summer Interior

The art of selecting a room for summer furniture is to select a room that has a lot of sunshine. This garden table is on the west side of my home and the sunshine pours in the triple windows where the table is placed.  I love using garden furniture as interior furnishings.

We will have rooms set up on the outside as well as our inside garden rooms for our "Late Show" which will be on Saturday, Aug. 28.  We have awesome vendors that most certainly have loads of garden furniture. The show starts at 9:30 a m.  Come have fun with us.  Call for directions. Telephone number is on the home page.

Late White Wednesday

This is the first time I have been able to do a post for "White Wednesday" and although I am a little late getting it up I am thrilled to say "It Worked"  We have just revamped our blog site and will be struggling to learn all the details of what makes the blogging world such a fun place to be. This is part of our bedding line and a more detailed information page is on our website. Take a look.  We will be working on that site in the
next few days. Thanks for visiting with us and I want to take this opportunity to thank Theresa with Garden Antiques for all of her many tips.  She is a sweetheart in case you didn't already know that.

Waiting for the Next Show ?

I know it seems as if we are having another show soon after our regular spring show but if you remember it rained really hard during our last show and a lot of people didn't get to come. I did make a promise to some of those people we would have another show real soon and the WAITING is now over so here it is.


SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 9:30 a.m.

The main attraction will be the vendors listed above. The barn and also the house will be open and food and drinks will be available for purchase. Feel free to call for directions. 903.984.1487
