New Stuff...

Barb has such a splendid flair for drawing you in to her web of decorating dreams. Everyone that is involved in the web-weaving brings their own special mark to the realm of Sister's Garden. I recall 15 years ago, there was this booth in an antique mall that had the greatest stuff and it was displayed so creatively. I bought lots of stuff from the gal back then. Then I heard that she opened her own shop...OH MY GAWD!!! Where is she? I'll never forget the first time my sweet friend Cathie C. This Girls Art and I went to Barb's newly opened shop...we were just floored. Everything we saw at the shop was right out of Victoria magazine, Country Living, Country Home, Romantic was all there. What a treasure and 15+ years, it is still going that is a testament to great skill and passion...Sister'Garden...a must see...

So here we are with a wonderful pale, mint green, Victorian dresser and mirror, the perfect palette of mint chips and dings, a decorator's dream. Then we have a STUNNING walnut chest with mirror. If you are Victorian at heart, this is a splendid piece of rare beauty. Then on to a wonderful black built-in filled to capacity with mercury glass baubles, a maroon velvet chair glowing in the brilliant autumn sun and last, but not least the vision at the top of the stairs at Bloom, a study in pink...glowing in crystal and glass, you must see this display close up to see the product in all it's finery.

Again Barb and the girls have mixed a study in texture for your pleasure, now remember, these items usually don't last long as the intrepid buyers that frequent the shop know...if you like it, you better be first in the doors or you will be long drooling over pictures of past beauties...see ya at the event...

I'm so into white. And black. With a little red thrown in. When I see natural wood furniture, all I can think of (much to DH's horror) is what it would look like all while and chippy. But if it's black, it must be smooth and perfect. And the red, well it's just there for whimsy!

I'm always intrigued with old stuff. Whenever I get the luxury of time I take a stroll and wander in antique shops not really to buy but to be there to examine and to be connected with things from times gone.

There's always that strange feeling I get when I hold, say an antique lamp, in an antique store. As if this objects have a soul, and they have stories to tell in the marks left by the past in them.

I love to read second hand books, I always get surprises in the pages finding things and words from previous owner of the book. When I buy and read new books, I'm often tempted to write notes and my thoughts in the sides of the pages - some drafts of my poems were even written in the book pages.

The marks we left on the things we own are messages we send to our future, and if our possessions for some reasons go to other hands, perhaps we also let them take a peek of our souls.

I wish you well.
