Bedroom Perk Up

A customer updating a bedroom wanted it clean, simple and interesting...Loved this collection of different and interesting items we worked up above this walnut poster bed. Cream platters, transfer ware lids, and pieces of art. My favorite is this vintage style leather handbag mixed in with a few succulents and white blossoms tucked inside of it...The simple and beautiful bedding finished it off.

 One of our birch wreaths worked up with green ferns, white hydrangea, and green berries...something that is pretty all year round.
Collection of vintage stain glass bottles on this rustic tray on her dresser...just a touch of green to soften it. What a beautiful bedroom and haven for any company that visits her enjoy!

Texture Texture Texture...

 Loving this new display draped and layered in washed velvet and chocolate burlap...stacked with great twisted and wild birch baskets and bowls, woven Indian baskets, carved cedar bowls and art, and rustic green metal baskets.
 These crusted and aged turquoise glass jugs look like they were pulled from a shipwreck...beautiful muted aqua blues and browns. These interesting carved cedar bowls are so rustic and wonderful place one on your coffee table full of black & white photos with one of these great birch basket trays.
 This large birch branch tray holds this glazed green pottery bowl perfectly...filled with pumpkins and green berries for Fall. A perfect centerpiece for a rustic farmhouse table. Add these scraped and colorful wooden candlesticks to the setting and you have one interesting and unique centerpiece for Fall. Place smaller pumpkins on top of the candlesticks for interest and height.
We also love our Navajo Indian Baskets always searching for these as they add a touch of warmth, interest, and texture to any home. Display them on your mantle for Fall or hang a collection on a large wall.

School Days...

Wishing everyone a great week and new school year ahead!

A Picnic Lunch & Thoughtful Surprise

 It's not every day that we get to stop for lunch and if we do it's usually peanut butter crackers and hot coffee! Last week a dear friend and customer surprised us with a beautiful lunch made with love. A wonderful treat! Chicken Salad sandwiches, chilled cucumber mint water, tomato basil mozzarella salad, macerated peaches with ancho-cinnamon sugar, and pineapple mousse. All neatly packed and displayed in a basket wrapped in beautiful polka dot and striped blue ribbon with a blue checked tablecloth.
 What a beautiful display and a special lunch we felt special for a day! She was gracious enough to share her recipes below try them you will love them. Made me realize how thought and taking the time to make everyday life special sometimes is very important and food for the soul! Thanks for lunch!
