What's Inside

Gotta have one: Faux Bois Welcome Mat

Greetings everyone!
Earlier this month I left the store for 10 days to shop the Atlanta Gift Show. I decided to drive the van so I could bring back some well-needed antiques for all of you. When I returned it was obvious the store was going through a fun transition from Winter to Spring- with a major stop on Valentines Day. We had many large items leave during our Makeover Sale and while we are waiting on a truck of new slipcovered furniture, newer gifts and decor are in their place. It may still be 30 degrees outside but we are not waiting on Mother Nature to lift our spirits with a touch of green, birds or flowers- we are doing the work for her right now!

Take a look at some of the items just in:

I brought back 18 Antique Millinery Flowers which are perfect for softening any vignette in your home (or to wear!) Also shown, Initial 'B' Embroidered Pillowcases and our best selling Fresh Linen Sachets.

Lovely McCoy Pots and other matte finish vessels to add to your collection.

Piles of linens and lace: Tablecloths, Runners, Mantle Scarves and Huck Towels.

Wooden eggs with bird prints. Perfect for the lonely egg cup.

Rustic Painted Work Table

My new favorite technique: Graphic prints transferred onto burlap frames.

It took me forever to get these made, now a Curious Sofa exclusive: Heavy Dripping Candles only in white.

Chandelier Umbrella

Soldered Crystal Cross Necklace on ruffled elastic ribbon.

China Aphrodisiac Plate and Love Potion Vase shown with Antique Sheet Music.

Large Antique Sterling Silver Locket

Just in, a pair of amazing velvet chairs.

Love is a gamble! Valentine Bingo Cards.

Recycled Sofa Table made from salvaged wainscot bead board.

Amelie Blue Drinking Glasses.

Just in: Crochet Towels (also in cream), Tiny Botanical Herbs, Butterfly Mug.

WOW- Laugh-In had nothing on us! Enamel Vintage Pins- for your hat, purse or jacket.
