Do You Hear the Rustling Leaves?

Now I realize that autumn actually started yesterday at two something pm but today is the first full day of fall. Don't you just love it? It's one of my four favorite seasons.

We are continuing to add wonderful things to the store so if you've already been here, you need to know that "new" items are already finding themselves on display. Perhaps it would be a good idea to make another trip down here to see if we've aquired something else that would look great somewhere in one of your displays. Look at this great restaurant-ware.

You want to know something? These are some of the best candles that you can buy anywhere. Very sensual and exclusive.

What an ideal romantic addition to add to that special ambiance.

Did you see this great button collection? I love the muted colors! Were you looking for something else? I sure love this frame. What do you think?

Before we part ways this evening, I want to remind you of the tea side of this enterprise. There are always going to be specially created treats for you to enjoy. Look at the smiles on these faces.

This could be you !

With Humble Thanks

I want to offer a great big and heartfelt thank-you to all of you who made the effort to come on out to visit us on our grand opening. I can say with all honesty that we felt it to be a total success. We could never have said that without all of the people who chose to put aside other priorities and make the effort to come join us in this celebration. It was so wonderful to have the chance meet each of you and welcome you to our store.

We were pleased with everyone who asked about our menu and decided to make it a part of this blog. Please note that you can now click on the menu image and it will take you to a viewable menu. We are proud of our selections and we hope that you will come back by and enjoy them frequently. Don't hesitate to offer your opinions. We welcome feedback and especially love the positive strokes that many of you have been so generous with thus far.

The Time Is Drawing Near!

Even though we open in a couple of days, we still took the time to hunt for treasures at the Coburg Antique Fair.

We knew from experience that Coburg is an event which is always potentially fruitful and we were not disappointed with our finds. You can expect to discover and possibly own many of the items we uncovered for you today.

Let me just interject a little parenthetical statement here. We really enjoyed seeing so many of our friends at Coburg today and appreciated hearing the encouraging comments regarding this endeavour of ours. We are truly looking forward to your visits to our store and we will strive to make each of them unique and exciting for you.

After a full day in Coburg, we headed back to the store to continue our efforts to make opening day a success. As you can imagine, not all of the preparations are as exciting as designing and decorating the fun little vignettes that we are preparing for you.

Fortunately, there has been some help from friends and family to get us to where we hope to be on Tuesday.

We don't want to spoil it for you by showing you the completed rooms. So instead we will show you a few little areas, hoping you will stop in for a visit. Please enjoy these images with the anticipation that the reality is going to be even better than what you see here.

Thanks again for stopping by and we truly hope to see you passing through our doors this week!

A Family Affair

Wow this has been a busy week!

Fortunately, we are supported by a lot of love and family.

Our new cottage has been cleared out and we have been able to paint and touch up each of the rooms.

The work force has been diligently attending to business.

Here's Marv doing great work.

Fortunately, he is highly skilled at making things look beautiful.

Oh yes, and Miss Gracie and her assistant are also attending to some important painting details.

Not to be out done, Aaron is adding his talents to the project.

If it weren't for all of the additional help this project would be far more work and much less rewarding!

We continue getting in more new and old merchandise.

Things are starting to come together and it is so exciting.

We are looking forward to opening our doors and showing you everything we've been working on.
