Is it Fall?

Hi All!

On Sunday I asked on Instagram if it was too soon to put Fall in the shop.

As you can imagine, I received yes and no's.  More no's, but still I struggle.

The girls return to school tomorrow and that usually signals Fall is coming.

So what did I decide?

I'm giving it another week or so.  Attempting to delay until closer to Labor Day.

But that can still change!

Instead, I brought some fresh treasures in to the shop-season neutral.

This windmill clock is truly ah-mazing!

Light weight to hang and uses 1 AA battery.  A farmhouse must have!

New lighting is in the shop!  This chandi is magnificent and will certainly glam up your space.

Our lighting is plug in ready or can be hard wired.  In our ancient building, we prefer plug in.

We have restocked your favorites and I snuck in a yummy Fall scent.

Our jewelry lines are super popular and I added to it with these sweet bracelets.  These are our school colors, but we have 10 different colors.

As much as we love the lake & summer, we are clearing out all remaining goodies. 
Signs, gifts, decor & more. 

NOW 40% off! 

If you're still in summer mode - stock up.  If you're a sale shopper, grab it for next year.  
Either way-it needs to go!

Enjoy the day & pop in:
Wednesday-Friday 10:00-3:00
Saturday 10:00-4:00

Rustic Dresser

Hi All!

I hope y'all had a great weekend!  Were you riveted by the Olympics?  Isn't gymnastics awesome?  Swimming is fantastic and I even watched cycling and other random competitions.

Of course I watched with a paint brush in my hand.  Multi-tasking at its best.

We sent some beauties to their forever homes...

A favorite of mine. 

That leaves some holes in our little shop. Since I'm a hoarder, I pulled some beauties and got busy.

This rustic beauty will debut Wednesday in the shop.

Finished with Maison Blanche Mushroom on the shell, Coffee Bean on top, Ivory and a few touches of other colors on the drawers.  A mix of waxes completes the look.

This was a fun one with a unique result.

Y'all are keeping me busy and I'm loving every minute of it!

See you Wednesday 10:00-3:00.

Our Barn

August?      When did that happen?

This summer is a blur. Our days at the lake without an alarm clock, rarely getting in the car and reading book after book, have been replaced with a 5:00 am wake up call, two-a-day practices and math homework.  Yuck!

The good news about spending time at home is we are accomplishing a lot!

Hubby and I spent some time cleaning out our small barn.

We picked up some windows on our travels and Hubby installed them.  This is a life saver, it creates a cross breeze and makes it quite pleasant.

We painted the interior wood walls.

Last Fall, we insulated and installed tongue & groove boards to the ceiling.  We glammed it up with a pair of chandi's.

Last week, Hubby sanded the gunk from the wood floors. 100+ years of gunk covered beautiful flooring.

We power washed the floors as well.  Now you can see the beauty.

So our little barn is our newest hangout area.  A TV, fridge, lounge area, eating area will keep us occupied.

Additional updates will come, but for now, we love it!

A Restyled Shop

Our little shop has been rockin'!  Thank you so much for supporting our business-
we are so very grateful!

With a busy few weeks, I was able to restyle the shop again yesterday.

Restyled buffet is just beautiful. Two - tone with Maison Blanche Mushroom and Ivory.

Fabulous barn door, restyled desk and coffee table.

Hometown signs and furnishings

Lots of Lake and Beach goodies now on sale.  
The armoire is pretty cool and would be fantastic with a restyle.

Our new jewelry lines have been extremely popular.  
We have expanded the area and gave it a much needed restyle.

This coffee table or bench has been restyled with a Restoration Hardware barn wood finish.  Another beauty I struggle to part with.

Wednesday 10:00-3:00
Thursday 10:00-3:00 & 6:00-8:00
Friday 10:00-3:00
Saturday 10:00-4:00

Hope to see you soon!

The Restyled Shop

Hi All,

I am popping in before restyling a bit to show you some beauties.  We have had an amazing few weeks & I'm unbelievably thankful and excited!

I'm excited to continue to restyle the shop and bring in fabulous finds and treasures.

This table is a beauty! The detail is divine.  Finished with Maison Blanche products, she is now in the shop!

We have one clock left. These have been so popular!

You hopefully saw my pickin' prize.

If you don't own an olive bucket, you're missing out! Very Farmhouse chic.  Joanna Gaines will tell you-it's a must have.

Oh la la.  I restyled this pine beauty with layers of Maison Blanche paints and waxes.  I never showed it off and now she's in her forever home.

Jewelry has been wildly popular.  We brought in lots of new designs this week too.
Great statement pieces and/or gifts.

I can't share everything in a single post. More to come.

Shop is open:
Wednesday 10:00-3:00
Thursday 10:00-3:00 & 6:00-8:00

Unbelievable Find

We recently spent a few weeks at the lake.  In addition to the R&R, quality time with dear friends & family, I did some pickin'.

I've been pickin' here for nearly 9 years.  I have my spots and they rarely disappoint.

This was part of my haul.

While I love each piece for different reasons, the standout on this trip was …

This 1800's cubbard is truly AMAZING with its layers of paint, square nail heads, unique locks, imperfections due to being well loved and its abundance of storage.

It is unbelievable. 

We cleaned it up, made small repairs and sprayed her to preserve the magnificent paint layers.

She landed in the shop this week. As you can imagine, it required a complete shop restyle.  
But it was totally worth the work!

I hope you'll pop in the shop to see this beauty, and lots more.

Wednesday - Friday 10:00-3:00
Saturday 10:00-4:00
