Memorial Day 2015

Today is the day we as a country set aside to honor those men and women who have served our country in war and in peace.  We especially wish to thank publicly those who made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives for men, women and children they do not know on a personal level.  Through their brave service they are responsible for our country’s freedom.  Thank you one and all!

New things in the shop lately!

We have neglected to show you some of our latest finds so I will remedy that right now!

First up – this is not an original idea but the hubby did a terrific job of assembling it when I gave him the pieces, the wheel courtesy of a friend of ours who found several out junkin’!  I knew there was a great use for those old lamp bases I have been collecting too….

~SOLD!~

Terrific for picture or card display -  jewelry too

Miss Sophia painted this MCM 4 drawer dresser in Freedom Road by APC and left the top and the separator pieces dark stained.  Cool new hardware adds to its charm!

And these pieces are courtesy of our newest  vendors – Miss Madelle and Miss Nora

Hmmm...can you tell our newest color love?

A new buffet, a new dresser, a new dining set

New things in the shop and we’d love to share them with you!

First up is a lovely long dresser – maker unknown unfortunately.  Miss Evie painted her in APC’s Homeplate and then added new hardware to dress her up (I heard the original was UGLY!)

Fresh coat of APC's Homeplate and new hardware!

Originally made by White Furniture Company, this lovely buffet is painted in APC’s Freedom Road.  The white knobs are new, the rest original.  Sorry for the porch angle!

This set was a marriage made in Heaven!  A newer table with four vintage chairs (could the match be any better-I think not) and new upholstery – didn’t last 24 hours!

~SOLD!~

Lovely - didn't even get the chance to decorate it!

What a Lamp!

I have to share this with you for two reasons – one, I ADORE the color and two, I love the components!  Look closely at the second picture.  It took me a few minutes to recognize those aluminum tumblers…on a black lucite base…with clear lucite discs separating the tumblers….sigh!

Easter Greetings!

I love vintage Easter postcards and have quite a few.  I have also sold quite a few over the years.  This one is one of the most interesting I have found.  Addressed to Miss Walls from Charley H,  it is a true penny postcard.  It must have been hand delivered because it was not sent through the mail.

Happy Easter to All of you – enjoy your day!

Two weeks have flown by – again!

The past two weeks have been filled with grandchildren, days at the shop, days preparing furniture for the shop and life in general!  We are all well and healthy and grateful for our blessings!  Blogging seems to have fallen to the bottom of the list – I apologize!

There are new things in the shop and things that have left already so I had better share the new items while they are here!!
