We had an awesome weekend for both stores.
It warms our heart that so many customers
came out to support us.
Many even told us to keep the change...
which I did not do, however a generous gesture.
Today I wanted to show you more
of my bedroom redo.
I added my faux fern plant inside this hornbeam.
Hornbeam is a hardwood tree.
It grows in most parts of the U.S.
It was mainly used for tool handles,
walking sticks and hollowed out to hold
potatoes, corn other food stuff.
Let's say it was a pioneers pantry.
No matter what time of day,
I could not get a really good pic
of this corner.
My antique rocking horse sits on top
of this chippy creamy white cabinet.
The coverlet is an overshot pattern.
Overshot patterns began as a way
for weavers to express themselves
with more intricate designs.
With these types of patterns,
coverlets could be sewn together
to make larger ones.
Did you know weavers of their time
were men only?
Again so sorry for the poor pic.
While working at the gift shop
in between customers,
I was able to hook some small
Autumn items which will be sold
at the store.
Will show you once steamed,
binded and put together.
Wonderful Autumn colors!
Well off to the back room
to go to work.
Happy first day of June!
Pre Summer Blessings To All!
