Busy Busy!

 We have busy busy this past week thinking of the future, getting ready for Fall (yes I know already), rearranging for new and excited pieces and items to arrive from market, and cleaning & waxing our old wooden floors…moving and setting this antique French table made it a charming centerpiece for our living area in the shop. Enjoyed mixing the creme and chocolate Vietri dishes together to set this pretty table…
And yes one of our great jugs was used in the center to fill with red tomato vines and herbs to set off the red burlap table topper and linen placemats & napkins. Our wonderfully large & great wooden angel paintings still set the background great pieces!

Jugs & Glass Domes

Pick and choose from our great jug collection…large jugs are a staple for us to create a focal point and centerpiece in a kitchen on an island, on a large table, or to display a collection on top of a buffet or hutch. Great for a seasonal touch with wild green grasses, fall leaves, or leave them plain…these look like they are straight out of an old european kitchen great patina and character!
One of the most interesting pieces that we carry a reproduction glass dome and base…perfect to hold your most unusual treasures. When I was a little girl I found my great aunt's original camera from the early 1900's and many of the old and wonderful photos she took with it in the old barn. A perfect treasure to display under one of these wonderful domes! So use your imagination!
