Spring has SPRUNG in our little town of Sun Valley

The grass at my house is turning green!!! The pond is flowing, the trees are have tiny little buds everywhere. What a relief, winter is over!!!

This summer is very exciting for me. Kim Seybert who owns one of the most beautiful TABLETOP companies will be coming to our store for a TRUNKSHOW in early August. I can’t wait, not only will she be bring more summer ideas, she will also bringing new fall tabletop. I don’t  want to get ahead of myself, I only want to think of summer, dinner in the patio, birthday parties for friends, romantic dinners and dancing in our fruit orchard… Some of my very favorite pieces from Kim Seybert are her outdoor melamine products, napkins and napkin rings. Most of her pieces and the colors are all about the beauty of nature.

Let me show you some

Happy spring


How can it be that three weeks have slipped through my fingers since the last blog?

I’m told as one gets older a “quickening” of time begins. I do believe that. On my last blink it was mid January and my beautiful grandson had been born. The summer season that I love so much in Sun Valley has passed. The leaves are changing so fast, what was green yesterday is red today and my grandson is now 8 1/2 months old. In the house I have NEST candles burning and a small fire going. I just received an order from Laura Zindel in from the store. She is a naturalist illustrator and has recreated her drawings of insects, birds, frogs and butterflies into unique housewares. These fine ceramics, dinnerware, and gift items are made in her studio just outside of Guilford, Vermont. My favorites are the Bird Mugs and Ant Platter. They’re interesting conversation pieces and perfect for any season especially for our holiday tables.
Take a peek and have a wonderful weekend.
