Closed Today ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

the Shop here at the farm will be 
today (friday)

I will be taking the day to finish my little 'creative space' ~
and celebrate my BDAY!

Peter & I went to purchase a new rug for the redux last night ~
on our way, we shopped stopped at Joan & Art's house
(antiques dealers & best friends)

I say SHOPPED there, 
because if you need it and can't find it anywhere else, 
chances are that Miss Joanie has it! and she usually has 'it' squirreled away in her home somewhere.
Their home btw, is a showcase for everything the pair love and collect.
I am threatening her with a visit from me with my camera so you can all 'visit' her via my blog ~

They sell their goods at:

Duke's Antiques Mall
30 Pinnacle Ln, Lexington, VA 24450
(540) 463-9511
  • under the name "Olde Rectory Antiques"

    Joan specializes in Vintage, Antique & Primitive items ~ she always has unique offerings and she holds a wonderful eye for the unique
    You may have met her here at our Gathering show last September.

    ANYHOOOOOO long-story-short,
    I bought a pair of decorative iron shelf brackets from her ~ so Peter can make that shelf above my desk to hold those tins!!!
    We purchased the new rug ~ too (not from Joan)
    from of all places Walmart! 
    it is a 5' x 7' 6" ~ from Better Homes and Gardens and
    has a nice vintage/faded look to it, and incorporates the colors I'm looking for now for this room.

    I will share pics soon ~ perhaps this evening!!!!!

    Have a beautiful day my friends ~
    remember that YOU are all gifts to me!!!

  • * Blessed be *
