My Holiday Shop...and a fantastic giveaway!



  Last weekend, Jenny and I opened up our newly renovated garage to the public for our first holiday shop. It was a dream location (steps away from our home!) and we filled it with items from our personal collection of antiques, our home decor collection, freshly made wreaths, back issues of our magazine, and more! We met and reconnected with so many wonderful friends; it was truly a pleasure to share the story and origin of each piece and see them off to good, new homes.

Among the items featured in our sale:

Cakestands:


Beautiful containers and vessels of varying vintage:




Holiday greenery, cuttings, and plants:





Past issues of the magazine:


Pillows and textiles - vintage and reproduction:




 Gorgeous vases, lamps, fretwork wall hangings, mirrors, and more!





What strikes your fancy?

In the spirit of the holiday, we are giving away some very special  prizes: two sets of jelly glasses and one of our gorgeous Canterbury cakestands:

  13. Saw the inspiration for your jelly glasses in the Old Sturbridge Village Glass house. The id tag said 1820, I think. The glass was a wee bit thicker, but the overall size and design were exactly the same. Good job!!

  52. Okay so I went for eclectic and instead I got a mishmosh mess. My husband patiently shakes his head at my design ideas. I am still hoping that one day it might click, I'll get that style sense my mother has a knack for. Until then I will look to your blog for inspiration! Your ideas are amazing, what's your secret?
