Santa has come to our booth in Monticello. We did a traditional red and white Christmas with a garden twist! There are lots of lemon cyprus topiaries and rosemary trees to brighten and scent any room in your home for the season. There are two large vintage watering cans - one is a red Hawes from England. Fill it with holly on your front porch for a grand welcome! There are vintage red paper bells to hang and Balsam and Cedar candles to scent the air. I love the large white snowflake stars that light up - Silent Night style. I even made simple stockings from some vintage kitchen curtains and they hang from the white mantel from an assortment of sad irons. So the Monticello Christmas Show starts on this Friday. Get in to see the magic and enjoy the show. Repent Antiques is up front in our regular booth as I decided not to be in the show because of our pending move. We are awaiting word from the underwriter so that we may sign and start hauling! Have yourself a grand Thanksgiving full of family, friends and good food. We will do the same.

We have been busy collecting and making items for the upcoming Fall show that opens on Friday, September 5 at 8:00am. The shows are put on in the back portion of Monticello and are a delight to see. Each invited dealer does some creative magic with their space. So put it on your calenders and come see for yourself.

I love the flag! It represents so much about our country and the sacrifices so many people have made to keep us free! We have alot of vintage flags for sale in this display. And we have some wonderful WW1 ephemera in this display - from a Welcome Home banner that was hung on doors in 1919 to alot of Red Cross items. There is a program of songs and poems to welcome home the troops and alot of war bond ads too. There are 30" and 55" fabric banners to hang inside or outside and a wonderful 80" long narrow flag to use down the center of your table. So come down and enjoy the display and get some decorations to show your pride too! Sara and Bob did this display for me as I am still recovering from my knee replacement. I so appreciate my family helping me as I get my strength back. Happy Fourth of July and long may she wave! Happy Birthday America!

The back wall is a wonderful six foot gate with a c.1910 scale on the counter. The ferns add just the right color to pull it all together! So the Home and Garden show is still going strong with new displays in all parts of the store. Come in and buy some seeds!
