Hello!


Can you believe this amazing sleeping porch Cindy has created on our porch at the store? She had this whole little idea in her head and finally it has come to fruition ~ The curtains and the quilt were my big contribution to the "look"!



Who in the world had this hour-glass figure? Apparently this was before fast-food!



Hello you sweet bloggy friends! I've been way too caught up with things at the store and just haven't gotten around to posting. I love to check on all of your blogs and read about what's new in your lives and also see what you've been creating!



I've been working on a few art projects again for the shop and will take photos as soon as they are finished. One that I did finish is in the store now and is a much larger version of the dress form I made last week. I think she would be lovely in someone's sewing room or even bedroom displaying a collection of necklaces! I've placed a pin cushion in the opening of the neck and trimmed it with antique lace and buttons. Our big Geranium Festival is coming up in about a month and we are trying so hard to get the store ready. It's our big chance to "show off" to many visitors who may not have been to our store before or think antique stores are stuffy old places. We have so many great things that there is usually something for everyone.



But anyway, my goal as well as Cindy's goal is to make and find as many cool things to go into the store this next month as we possibly can. I'll try to take plenty of photos of all that we are doing and as always, I update our store's blog every Thursday night so Friday mornings there will be pictures of all that is new on that blog. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for ALL the kind comments about The Plum Tree!!

Oh I just love that sleeping porch. I could easily sleep there on a warm summer's evening. I want it but it's never ever warm enough here!!!

That is just so lovely, looks like a place to curl up with your favorite book, a glass of sweet tea, and while away the hours.

I could dream good dreams on that porch! Sweet!

BeachysCapeCodCupboard said...

What a beautiful porch!!! I've always wanted a porch, but you don't see too many Cape style houses out this way with porches on the front. We have to opt for a deck out back, but I'd much rather have your darling "sleeping porch"!
