Selling our home

It is time to sell this wonderful 100 year old house and move up closer to Portland to be closer to our children and my new business - Repent Antiques.  We have had many fun times with great memories in this lovely home. I will miss her but we leave her in good condition with a new roof and recent paint job. There are  3 bedrooms in the house and a guest cottage with a bedroom, bathroom and loft. It has a great shop, a greenhouse, a garden shed and underground sprinklers.  I would take all my mature Old English rose bushes with me but am told they must stay...We have chosen Windermere Real Estate with a wonderful broker - Deanna Gillett - her cell is 541-915-9759 if you want to come take a look.  I am not looking forward to the actual move but am ready for a change.  So if you know anyone looking for a great small town and a quiet lifestyle - give Deanna a call. She has lived in Cottage Grove herself a long time.  And now the hard part - finding a new home....   Mary

The Bees Knees!

We are still having fun with our bee display and added some new treasures. The wonderful pine hutch sold so we put in a nice darker hutch with shelves and drawers.  Come see all the new treasures and get 10% off during Monticello's Anniversary sale....

Bee Happy!

Today we did a complete change over at our booth in Monticello.
Seems easier than having to clean = take it all away and start over!
It is alot of work but so satisfying when you are done... So Bees are
the theme and we had yellow bee pendants swaged from above. Straw bee
skeps and bee lotion and soaps are piled everywhere.  We even had a swarm
of bees on the wall. The nine foot Scandinavian pine bench is a one of a
kind antique.  The pine table made out of an old door is so perfect.  My
favorite is the large pine amoire with a multi pane front and generous shelves
inside - hope it does not sell;-) So come on in and see our new bee display. 
I have to say thank you to Sierra (my talented daughter -in -law) and my hubby
Bob for all their help and patience today.  We done good and had fun doing it..
win - win!! Come see what the buzz is all about....Happy Spring!  Mary
