Home Style @133!

As a retailer this is a   exciting time of the year.  The air is changing, and the Home Style Goods for the season are arriving and our “New Fall Quilt Collection” is all jelling together We have an opportunity to really make our first annual Expo Open House memorable in oh so many ways.  I hope if you are visiting during the Expo you will think of us.  We will have our SchoolRoom Open to the public (Tuesday September 8th-Saturday September 12th).  It is going to be a showroom filled with our inspiration for the new season.  Hours will be extended to 6PM during the week and 5014PM on Saturday.  Remember our quilt numbers are always limited so if you want to be sure that you get a favorite don’t wait too long because they will also go on line to our audience in cyber space001.  I will try and give a blog preview on Monday.  At this time I am still hopeful I will be able to offer you a great opportunity to purchase our quilt and cross-stitch models.  We will have treats too so make us a destination when you come to the Expo in three weeks. 

Just Arrived:  The most wonderful Metal Folk Art Turkeys.  They sell for $145.00 and I know this will be  a treasure like no other.  I bought a big metal Tom similar to to this one last fall and he has never gone away.  He greets all my guests at the front door and has been a source a great conversation through out the year. 020

We have been talking about cutting up the new Stacy West fall prints for a few weeks and to021day was the day that we got to it.  Krista cut 2 yards of  the random fall colored prints from this line and packaged them for your fall piecing. These little bundles are priced at $25.00.  You will get at least two shirtings packaged with your bundles. I have a few pictures of Riverbanks to share with you, so many of you have been asking so this is what I have.  The kitche012n is close to being finished just waiting for the tile behind the cook top and the hood over the cook top. As you can see I love things pretty neutral and calming and feel this is it for me.  I am not a white girl but latte works with my favorite crab apple and Lancaster white.  The dark cabinets are caraway knotty alder.  I have pops of 014grey throughout the house.  We finally have my dining area lit.  I can get this light from my favorite company.  I have had it for so many months.  Reed was not sure but “He likes it”!  Why can’t he trust me on these things?  I bought this great old Antiques sign from my friend Ruth knowing I ha019d a perfect spot.  It is made for the spot.  She would approve.  We have several areas for good conversation and relaxing, it will be wild when the family arrives but I can ha017rdly wait to christen it.   I love this peaceful view, I have a small table by the window where I write and think.  It is swell just have not had more than half hour to sit there.  It will happen I just don’t know when.   This is enough, thank you for the interest in this love story with a house that has lasted for Reed and I for over 30 years.
