A Little Something New In The Sun Porch & Thanks To You!

If you been a long time follower or are new to the blog you know our sun porch is the gateway to our home. While the interior of my home leans towards the traditional side of decorating, the sun porch leans towards more of an Country French side with a slight twist of Cottage thrown in the mix. The marriage of the two blends beautifully and harmoniously to make me one happy gal.

Fall Touches In The Kitchen

With the rush of trying to get the shop ready for the Open House, (if you missed all of that you can catch up HERE, HERE and HERE), it dawned on me Thanksgiving is less than a week away. I thought I should share the small touches in the kitchen before I break it down and begin putting up the Christmas decor.

Christmas Open House Part 3, The Grand Finale

You folks sure know how to make a girls heart sing. Thanks so much for all of your kind comments about the Open House. I've enjoyed reading the comments on the blog and via email. A few years ago the only way to get the word out about the shop was through the standard form of advertising, now due to social media we can reach thousands if not more. Thank goodness for modern technology huh? Now onto some fun pictures.
The glass snowmen ornaments were a "huge" hit this year. I displayed them on the tree as well as the platter here with a few sprigs of red, mercury glass acorn ornaments and in another part of the shop in a different manner you'll see in just a bit. Don't they put a smile on your face?

Christmas Open House Part 2

Wow! What a weekend we had around the shop. Many many thanks to all that came out this past weekend. The crowd and mood of all that attended were so festive and so up beat, they were all in the mood to shop. The festive moods truly helped me get through this difficult weekend, knowing Mr. P was not here to share. So many many thanks.

Christmas Open House Part 1

It's been a busy couple of weeks around here. Putting the finishing touches on the outside decor, fluffing and tweaking decor inside the list goes on and on. I'll begin by saying this is one of the hardest Open House's I've ever prepared for.

November has rolled into our part of the country beautifully. Yesterday it was a gorgeous 64 degrees. Today the winds are howling.
