Christmas 2013

We did our first Christmas display at Monticello yesterday as it is coming! Christmas is coming! This display has a woodland theme to it with handblown insect ornaments, English hedgehog and fox mugs and a wonderful wooden chopping block (what a fun gift that would be). You have to stop in and smell the balsam and cedar candles - like talking a walk through the forest.  So get on up to Monticello to see it for yourself. Don't forget that the Monticello Christmas show opens on Nov.22 at 8:00am.  It is not to be missed as the displays are so wonderful and full of vintage treasures. We will be doing our second display on Dec.1 in the front window! Think ice and snow and silver! So have a warm, family oriented Thanksgiving and remember to donate what you can to the people in the Phillipines to help their recovery. Mary and Sara

Be Thankful

Halloween candy has not even been all consumed by all the little goblins and yet today we switched out our booth to a most wonderful holiday - Thanksgiving!  A primitive table with all wooden pegs and hand carved legs displays a lovely set of antique Royal Copenhagen Golden Basket dishes.  Add in dried grains, dried hydranges and turkey candles and you have set your table.  Velvet pumpkins, jeweled picture frames and a linen upholstered bench complete the look. So get into Monticello soon for some inspiration and remember to be thankful for all you have.... Mary and Sara
