Summer's Beauty

Our St. Francis is tucked behind bright sunflowers and sitting on one of our antique tulip crates...love the large wooden rosary surrounding him with a collection of cloches.

Getting Ready For Fall...

 We are getting ready for a new season and gradually "Falling" up the shop...some people are looking forward to a new season and others are sad that Summer is going by so fast!
 Love this cast iron garden bench and table filled with these great wicker bee skeps, wicker picnic baskets, leather wicker gathering baskets, and large hand thrown glazed bowls and pedestals...

Each one of these pottery pieces start as simple lumps of red clay before talented artisans shape each one using a traditional potter's wheel. Nature-inspired glaze colors are applied by hand before high firing in ovens similar to those used for centuries. Characteristics of handcrafted work can be seen in the shapes, finished and slight color variations-making each piece a unique work of art.
Above is the very large orchard bowls…love love these! We were brainstorming about what you could do with these great bowls-we could see them filled with green apples for Spring & pumpkins for Fall….potatoes in a kitchen underneath an island…under a large coffee table filled with books-or displayed on top of a coffee table. Use your imagination! If you appreciate hand thrown pottery you will love taking a look at these...
 These oversized golden brown amber jars are so pretty for Fall one my favorite things! I can see a collection of them on a large coffee table or the center of a dining table filled with large lighted candles...

These is nothing prettier than a Fall garden looking forward to it...

Unusual Items for Your Home!

This large turquoise jug is stuffed full of bright orange, yellow, and burnt red sunflowers for late Summer and early Fall...don't you love sunflowers??
One of my favorite pieces that is hand painted and wonderful...Katmandu, the capital city of Nepal, is home to many skilled artisans. This piece is hand crafted and hand painted by these artist. The colors on this cabinet are original. Due to their bleak surroundings the people of Katmandu prefer radiant colors which are highlighted in these select pieces we receive in....
This great little piece can roll around to your convenience...it's brushed metal finish and sleek design would fit just about anywhere. A great piece to stack dishes on or even a collection of beautiful books...it has many possibilities! $146.95

The BEST Traditional Mexican Vanilla...

Our Traditional line of Mexican vanilla extract is the best of what you can find in Mexico. The Canosa family, who produces our vanilla exclusively, has been winning the Gold Medal of Honor award in Mexico for 30 years running. Both the Traditional & Pure Mexican Vanillas are all natural, produced in Mexico using only the highest grade, single sourced, Mexican vanilla beans. Our Mexican vanilla is never blended with another grade or type of bean – it is the absolute best vanilla available in Mexico.

"Aren't "Homecomings" the best! They are at our house. Dad always said, "Where there's heart room, there's house room." Many a homecoming at our house has been celebrated with our favorite family recipe of Chocolate Chip Cookies."
What a great gift the vanilla would make tied together with the Chocolate Chip Cookies mix or Aunt Carolyn's Brownies with Chocolate Vanilla Frosting!
The Traditional variety is perfect for all your daily uses, such as cookies, pancakes, french toast, waffles, oatmeal, ice cream, coffee, cakes, brownies, whip cream, smoothies – you get the idea! It has a very low alcohol content (just 10%), which makes the Traditional vanilla much more versatile, and can be used for anything that calls for vanilla.
 Aunt Carolyn is a classy lady who can cook. And wow, can she cook! With her gorgeous green eyes and dancing dimples, she is a marvel in the kitchen. Her brownies are famous from one end of the Wasatch front to the other. Aunt Carolyn's home is constantly full of family, friends, and neighbors, and no one ever leaves hungry. Of all her wonderful kitchen creations, we
think Aunt Carolyn's Brownies with Chocolate Vanilla Frosting are the best.
This Traditional Mexican Vanilla is a top pick of Traditional Home Magazine’s Cooking School, has been featured on Martha Stewart’s Cup Cake Show, Cooking with the Neely's, Better Homes and Gardens, and Throw Down with Bobby Flay. The Vanilla Bean Paste is very popular right now with many cooks! Wonderful for Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, whipping cream or frosting, or to add a boost of flavor and beautiful flecks of vanilla to your favorite cookie recipe.
