Sister's Garden...







New pieces to behold...where does she come up with all these goodies??? This blue cupboard is just to die for. A very tall piece, perhaps a chimney cupboard, but it has all the chips in just the right places...did you ever think we would covet such wonderful, decrepit old pieces...
Barb pulls out all the stops when doing special occasions...like Christmas, usually the first week of December, the shops are just magical...the days are shorter and the dark time just requires special lighting effects and you will see them here. With huge red paper balls draping the windows, we get a glimpse of the Christmas glitz that will soon be decorating our homes.

Both stores right now are just filled to the brim with new stuff and gifts galore for the coming season. The farm setting on the front porch of Bloom just makes you want to settle right in to the farm, with bits and pieces of the past. This huge old Purple Martin condo would look so cool gracing your yard or the top of a gazebo, whether occupied or not, the charm is all that matters.

Another wonderful old painted work table is filled with treasures...look close and you will see the woodsy drapings of 'The Wild Thing' jewelry gracing this weathered old piece. Soaps of all scents, the latest issue of Romantic Homes and many more treasures to satisfy the urge for gifting.
This silver just screams Gothic, well worn, it's silver splendor a thing of the past, but a thing of beauty and art...it's function still ready at the will of the owner...if you dare...
Come visit us at Sister's Garden and experience the splendor of the seasons to come...and Deb, not to worry...all of us that are lucky enough to live in the country will experience the glimpse of our intrepid, lil' furry harvesters...the country mouse...the fearless master of packing it all in for the winter...storing for the long cold that will soon to be upon us...what a splendid home he has indeed.

Your pictures look great. I had my plans all made for decorating my space at Leola's but now I want to go out & find all new things. Oh, I almost forgot, I'm out of money. Anyway, it really makes me want to come to Sisters for a "fix". You're jewelry is wonderful. I loved the barn. Have a great weekend. Jan
