Fall is in the Air . . .

Fall is in the air . . . . .well, not necessarily here in southeast texas, but it IS HERE at the cottage. Pictured below are some of the great fall/Thanksgiving items we have on display:

We also have a great fall landscape oil painting:

And a couple turkey platters:

We are also stock full of items that we brought back from Round Top:

This is a great old radio cabinet that Mandy distressed and added old sheet music to where the speaker used to be. It opens up in three places! Top, drop front, and lower door drops down too.
Come check out all our special items on display . . . . they won't be there long as we will start preparing for our Christmas Open House in another week.

Which reminds me: The Cottage will be closed from Monday, November 1st through Thursday in preparation for our annual Christmas Open House and Antiques on the Lawn. Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 6th at 9:00 am. Sneak preview coming soon . . . .

Ready for the Ball

We picked up these chairs a while back...Marci gave in after I said over and over again that I loved them....Honestly...they were pretty sad!!! The fabric, not only being extremely retro, was quite worn...to threads...with no padding....faded....I know...you are saying "what were YOU thinking?" But...
I think they turned out "oh so chic" with their drop cloth dress and their new shabby, white washed make up on the frame....yes...these girls are ready for the ball now!!!

We are getting ready for our Christmas Open House Weekend coming up the first weekend in November...mark your calendars...more info to come soon!!!

Enjoy our fabulous weather here in South Texas...I personally will be glad when the ragweed starts to settle down then my nose can get back to normal...whatever normal is!!!

Another Week...Poof!!!!

Yes, we are back from The Round Top Antiques Week where we set up at LaBahia. We had a fantastic time!!! It was 900 degrees on set up day but after that a cool front come through and the weather was PER.FECT.!!!! Here is a little slide show of our booth. Of course, it morphed and changed throughout the week as pretties were sold and new ones were moved in....

Here is me and my honey, Troy, in the "outhouse" at the Junk Gypsy Prom. The Prom is the greatest people watching you will ever do!!!!

The John Evans Band is always entertaining.....

Marci and I, along with our strapping, furniture lugging husbands, started transforming the cottage once again...We moved in some pieces that we have kept hidden for a little while :-)

Come on by and see us...Now that it is a little cooler the coffee will be brewing!!!
