We have some new fun beauties gracing the garden!
This one is a rare find...an antique lead fountain with the plumbing in tact.

This Paris beauty named Coco is loving the new bottle wreaths from Europe. We put roses in them for her, but they can hold anything you want....from pens or crayons to buttons or marbles. They come in two sizes and make great gifts for the creative decorator.

Roses and Rust Event was Magical!

We were so relieved to have sunshine last weekend for the Roses & Rust Vintage Home & Garden Market, after sweating it out with days of rain the week before. It is beautiful at the Gover Ranch Events Garden, and a perfect venue for the Show...complete with rose gardens, meandering walkways, lovely lawns, gazebos, pergolas, and benches to sit and take in the beauty.

Our booth was not photographed by anyone I know of yet, so if you happened to take a picture, let me post it.

I was the official "nurturer" of the vendors, so I was busy most of the day serving wine, cheese and crackers.

There was so much creativity surrounding us, it was hard not to be inspired!

Our Pumpkin booth was created by Amber Boddy, with the help of Jessica and Sarah.

It was well worth all the work putting on this event!

Our booth at the BH Show

Brenda flew in from Switzerland and LizAnne from Cape Town, S. Africa, in time to help Lynni set up and 'woman' the booth at the Burlap Harlot Show last weekend.

T'was such fun!!

It was an amazing experience being in a building with so much creativity in the air, with all the vendors displaying their items in beautiful style.

In our booth, we hung 3 vintage rolls of player piano paper for a backdrop. They were a hit! We sold every roll we brought to the show.

The little cut-out dots and slits look fanciful on the stained paper. The the words to the songs are cut into the paper as well. It is a kick to read from the bottom up.

Several people who bought rolls are using them for wall paper.

We still have more left at the Cottage for sale, and we will be bringing some to Roses and Rust next Saturday.

News for you gardeners

Spring is around the corner and I am getting itchy to pull weeds and pick flowers.
We finally have picked up all the leaves from the trees in the garden area so the vignettes are visible.

We now have the greatest Flower Vases! They are actually collapsible & are great for travel, hospitals, office or home because they DO NOT BREAK. They are vinyl, I think, and fold up neatly for packing in your car, purse, suitcase or whatever. Now, when you are out visiting gardens you can instantly create a bouquet. They come in 2 sizes and three colors; clear, blue & pink.
Come in and see them before they sell out....they are very reasonably priced.

Our shipment from "Nawlins" has arrived!

We are having a blast re-decorating with all the FAB French finds!
