Garden Party

Please join us this weekend for our annual
Spring Open House
Friday & Saturday 10-6 • Sunday 12-5
April 11, 12 & 13

Take a look at what we have ready for you:
Just a few pics of Deb's new goods from Round Top-Giant antique birdcage from India

An old jewelry display holds dried florals.

Tiny grammar pictures and old lock plates from the fields of Warrenton.

An old portrait tin rests inside a damask French style satin tufted chair.

Two matching ticking pillows (found 6 hours from each other) inside an old porch swing.

A velvet Victorian photo holder from Marburger.

Plastic and metals letters buried in a field at Warrenton.

One of my favorite finds: Old bird decoys painted silver with a bit of glitter.

Dusty beaded necklaces in various sea glass colors found outside Zapp Hall.

These chalky composer figures from French Vanilla at Marburger Farms.

New Katie Brown designs and other garden accessories:I stopped in my tracks when I discovered Katie Brown's designs
at the last Atlanta market: Halter style garden aprons, galvanized walkway tea light cones,
burlap tablecloths, floppy canvas hats and willow fencing sections.

Another one of my late night paper projects: old album pages used to frame flashcard style signage.

These rubber mats printed with old barnwood have everyone fooled it is the real thing.

My new favorite item above: Hand cut plant markers. (But think of all the other possibilities!)

Succulent plant candles, large and small.

Another favorite item: Our Spoondelier! Hang from a tree outside or electrify for the kitchen.

This wonderful yard long was found on my trip but the new linen bedding just arrived in time for Spring. A great match.

This new style of slipcover chair also just arrived and this is my new favorite fabric of the moment.

We always have something white:Our giant patio umbrella fit perfectly inside this antique wicker dress form!
Now that's a centerpiece. White paper butterflies hang from the umbrella skeleton.

This new antique French sofa just arrived from the upholsterer- covered in a hemp-like fabric with exposed tacks.

These waffle towels with crochet edges are our customers favorite.

I also love these china cups made to look dented. Great for an informal flower arrangement.

Tons of butter pats also found on my trip. A friend of mine collects these and has a giant urn full- the colors are amazing!

And loads of new jewelry have also arrived (lots of old too!)
I wrote about this jewelry line two years ago when I went to the New York show and finally invested in it.
Wonderful, dark metals, irregular pearls and thin rings.

Hope to see you!
