Spring is FINALLY Blowing in..

We sure have has some goofy weather. I bought some Lantana in Texas with the thought I would put them in our pots outside. Somewhere… I guess in Arkansas.. we drove right out of Spring. I left a Lowe’s filled with tons of Petunias, Verbenas, Gardenias as well as veggies and herbs and got back up here and the leaves were not even out. Bummer!!

And yesterday.. though the weather was finally warming.. that WIND. I’ve been a bit spoiled here at the shop. We have had Hydrangeas, Hyacinths, Pansys and many other cheery flowers blooming since January. That, combined with the nice ivies, have made for a rather pleaseant diversion from the Winter that was hanging on outside. So now that the weather is finally warming outside, I’m getting ready for Summer. I’ve finally got the stuff I bought at the Cash and Carry out on the floor and now I’m in the mood to start rearranging things.

maybePlates.. we have several nice new ones. Our Dance in the Rain plate is a best seller and now this one is coming in right behind it. A similar sentiment and words of encouragement for a friend or family member. There are four plates in this collection all with nice sentiments. Sit them in a plate stand for individual display or add them to one of our wood or metal plate racks that allow the display of two or three plates either vertical or horizonally.

img_0239_2Another nice new plate is the one on the right. With the recent loss of my Father, the verse has taken on new meaning and is a gentle remider to live each day fully and with no regrets. If tomorrow never comes, do they know  you love them? I’m making sure family and friends know how much they mean to me.

basket1Check out this cute metal basket. I added two pip berry whisps. It will sit real nice on a shelf or table as well as hang on a wall with the wire handle.

Shelves and Textiles

berry-n-twigsThis is the new pattern we have in place mats and curtains. It is called Berry N Twigs. The curtains come in swags and tiers and we also have a nice table runner to go with the place mats.shelf1

Our plates are always popular. I have been asked for other ways to display them beside the plate stands we carry. For the larger plates, we offer several nice hanging iron racks.shelf_2 At the Cash and Carry I found this adorable black plate rack that will hold three 6″ plates horizontally. The finish on the rack is a nice bumpy prim texture that shows off our plates. Here the shelf rack is shown with three of our newer Hearthside plates.

shelf-2aAnother new addition is this shelf. This piece  has a nice, Colonial feel to it. It is  burgundy colored and has a combed texture to the paint. Those screws are for hanging on the wall.. and I can’t wait to get this piece out.

New Arrivials

Another delivery today! My plates from Hearthside came  and we got them all 20080416092511-579862priced and put out. Some favorites are back in stock and we have a few brand new ones. Many of these plates have nice inspirational messages like these from designer Barbara Lloyd  “Once you chose HOPE, everything is possible.”  “Some days there won’t be a song in your heart… SING anyway.” and “Do not be afraid of tomorrow, for GOD is already there.” We also got some fun ones for coffee addicts.

school1Another delivery received this week that we got put out today are wax warmers. We got some of our regular Revere warmers and also some of the Village Warmers. We have been waiting for months to get the Schoolhouse and Church warmers in. Beautiful as an accent in any home, the light bulbs in these warmers quickly melt wax tarts to fragrance your home. If you need wax melts for these or any other warmer, check out our selection Here.

Another item that has been back-ordered and finally in are the Saltbox Night Lights. We recently got our other night lights like the Outhouse, Federal Star, Paul Revere Lamp and Tent Top night lights. To see all our night lights see Here.
