Let the Summer Breezes Blow!!

It’s official and I know it to be true, the fire flies have been lighting up my yard at dusk.  Summer is here!  We are rolling at a pretty fast pace in the shop and ready as we can be!  The WI Shop Hop will be ending on Saturday the 25th and the 010“Row by Row” officially started today June 21st.       This is a busy week for us because it is also time for our amazing 46th Spring Green ArtFair.  It is always hot but the goodies on the street make you forget all of that.  My hope is if you haven’t been to this event you will find time to join us.   APT is also going full tilt, there have been lots of theatre goers in and raving over the amazing plays they are seeing.  Spring Green is a lucky town in so many ways and worth your  destination consideration.   Our Row by Row is themed “Home” this year.  Sense our Post House Garden is and has always been the heart of this bustling community and home to Hometown night talent and good food we chose to call it “Hom015etown Night in the Post House Garden”.  You can finish this row like ours and use it as a table runner or add it to your other rows.  Please remember this is only available to Row by Row guests that visit the shop during the summer months s014o you will not see this available on line, I hope this will be an incentive to get acquainted with us.

The summer seasonal decor is trending  lots of new quilts, samplers and Vintage Farmhouse decor to inspire your summer house.  ” Summer Breeze”,designed by Suzanne, is one of those little quilts you can use on your table scapes or on any se016rving station.  Notice the cream ware ice cream or berry bowls, the amazing drink dispenser and what a fun red serving bowl.   if you have the spot we are loving the looks of this Summer House sign. We also have found a great reproduction set of 006old coolers. 

We used them in so many ways at our Grand Olde Flag Gathering last week.  On the right I have filled the medium sized cooler with those amazing Cotton Wreaths.  Please notice the new cash box and the great Leather Moby Dick book boxes.

Last w018eek we officially introduced our exclusive doll beds at our gathering.  They are now available to you , they come unfinished and sell for $60.00.  Linda taught everyone how to paint and antique them and they all looked so professionally done.  It was great fun and so informative for our guests and now that we have so many wonderful patterns available you might want011 to consider this bed and a doll kit for a summer handwork project.  You see “Lolly and Vivian” a pattern designed by Suzanne who was remembering her girls favorite dolls when they were growing up. 

“California Dreaming” in shown on the bed on the right.  This was designed for my trip out to LA this spring.  I have a couple new samplers finished. 

“Bird Song” is a r012eally fun sampler we have available, I hope you are loving it as much as we do.   It is pretty swell and my framer found the perfect antique frame to make it sing..  My next sampler is a reproduct021ion called” Mothers Day”. If you love to stitch and showcase  your collection of antique and reproduction samplers I think this is one for you to think about. It looks old and  its just sweet and pleasing like mothers are supposed to be, it would make a nice009 tribute to your mothers love.   Yes its Summer @133!   There are stars and stripes pillows and  several star quilts to capture your attention like Selma’s “Dunlap Hollow “on the left 022, Suzanne’s new “Golden Rod” is on the right and its so sunny cheerful and bright and a great companion to our Jeanne’s “Bee Fantastic” which I posted in the previous post.   Barb’s “Star Gazing Around the World”  just happens to be our tribute to Tim Holtz’s fabric we find so unique and different, and an old favorite of ours designed by Vickie called 024“Old Glory”.   So many choices but isn’t that what makes a visit to us fun.

Summer at Hollyberry Farm  by Stay Nash is on the mantel and is always worth a second look if you are searching for just that right piece of summer handwork to take to the lake or on vacation! 

Happy Summer!!!  Hope to see you soon!
