Fun Game/Activity Room

Yesterday we got to pull together a fun game/activity room for three great kids. This antique bed was the customers bed as a little girl so it was transformed into more of a daybed/large sofa for the kids to read and watch movies from. Yet still usable for guest when they visit....
 We hung these bright red shutters on each side of the windows and hung these fun chevron lanterns and intertwined with our wide burlap ribbon as a fun and easy window treatment....
Antique gameboards were hung on the walls giving it a fun touch..metal library ladder works perfect to hold games and dvds in metal wire baskets....

This area on opposite wall is nearly finished working on large sepia toned portraits of each child to hang on either side of distressed turquoise mirror...Fun foosball table was being assembled to go in room and they are working on mounting a large flat screen on wall. Such a fun room!

Large Wide Burlap Ribbon

Loving this large and extra wide burlap handy for a variety of projects it is beautiful looped on a Fall door wreath or basket, intertwined on a Fall table, or used for window treatments or curtain tie backs. Even great to hang prints or paintings from...softens and gives interest to an area.

Green succulents mixed with Fall Leaves

This fresh display reminds me of the final evenings outside before winter sets in. Loving these bright green succulents mixed with Fall leaves and the small white washed greenhouse full of them. Today I brought home one of these fun striped tablecloths to work up on my table on my deck. Planning on stacking freshly picked pumpkins and concrete figures together as the centerpiece should be a beautiful day!

Mercury Glass Pedestals, Copper Mercury Jugs & Mercury Pinecones

 Worked on this display today with aged silver mercury pedestals in large and small sizes....Mercury bowl pedestals which are so neat to hold pillar candles. Will be beautiful for the holiday seasons on the way...great white-washed flat pillar pedestals are so neat to add height to a display or to put a cloche on.
 A close up of the large mercury pedestal and jeweled bird boxes. Love love these large copper mercury jugs would be a fabulous collection together in a bookcase or on a fireplace mantle. New wonderful wide burlap ribbon is in...tie it to a door basket or loop above a painting neat ribbon to work with.
Our old wooden angel paintings are in the background and in the front is one of our new pieces aged and hand finished Virgin Mary. We think she would be beautiful for Christmas wrapped in greenery as a centerpiece on a mantle or table. She would be beautiful anywhere her antiqued gold crown can be removed.

Jugs & Jars

Loving all the great jars and jugs arriving in....rustic and old looking gilded with gold and silver. Mercury glass jars in silver and copper are beautiful to display anywhere in your home. Cast iron mice are back in so cute to display on a hutch in your kitchen...New items arriving weekly!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake
One of our favorite recipes perfect for a Saturday morning with freshly ground cinnamon toddy coffee!
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups granulated sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 - 13 oz. jar Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam, stirred well (We carry this at the store)


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 10” bundt pan and lightly dust the inside with flour.
Sift together and set aside the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a mixer, or by hand, cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, blending well, and then add sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Gradually fold in flour, baking powder, and salt into creamed mixture until just blended.
Reserve 1/2 cup of batter and mix with 3/4 of the jar of blueberry jam.
Pour 3/4 remaining batter into the prepared pan, smoothing to the edges and creating a slight "trough" with a spatula.
Gently spoon the blueberry mix into the batter "trough", being careful not to touch the side of the pan.
Spread the remaining batter over the jam and smooth the top.
Set pan on middle rack in the oven and bake for about 60 minutes, or until the sides of the cake pull away from the pan and a cake tester (or toothpick) inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes. Turn onto a plate, sprinkle with confectioners sugar, drizzle with remaining jam and enjoy!
