The big counter move & a giveaway

We have an update on one of our most noticeable shop change today --- the lobby has been rearranged!

If you stick through this post about the lobby update, we also are doing our Giveaway Monday feature.  We've picked a few happy spring items from our online store and we're ready to give one away. 

Entering is easy-peasy...

A few weeks of planning & a few months of waiting, and the giant counter is now moved!  Here is a before picture of the counter move.  The space to the left of the old counter was cleared out & Anne moved to the main lobby area.  The empty area in this picture is where the counter needed to move.

The counter was moved over, giving shoppers more room to enter the shop.

We now have a larger area for customers to check out.

Scanning around....the area where the old counter was, is now replaced by our snack & coffee station.  Our wildebeest still greets everyone.  We may have to move him up a little more after he took a bite out of a tall man's head this weekend.

Anne is filling her new lobby space with lots of treasures...

A neat factory cart with antique books in Anne's new space. 

Anne added a home made garden pergola to her space and draped these lovely curtains on the wall.  Anne has started to bring in some of her garden items to the shop.  Some new finds include these giant urn planters.


Thanks for bearing with us through the lobby update.  It really is exciting {for us at least}.

  43. I can imagine putting the Petites Fleurs set filled with flowers and greenery on my living room mantle as part of a spring composition. I'd add ceramic rabbits, boxwood topiaries, and silver and crystal candle holders, with some mossy stones thrown in for good measure.

I can see it first filled with the daffodils that pop up 1st in my garden...then with tulips...then with my peonies...and all those in between times with my ever-in-bloom pink Knock Out Roses! Then hydrangeas too -- (even dried ones when fall comes ;-). Oh Wait -- would have to go find/pick some Queen Anne's Lace in the countryside somewhere(...on my way to Luckett's :-) LOL. I would put in my conservatory and move around from one place to another as the spirit moves me so I could enjoy everyday!

  62. I love the charming vase set. My grandmother used to have something like it when I was a little girl. I love to go out into my yard and find things to put in vases each weekend. Sometimes they are just leaves or branches (I love quince branches when budding)...but our daffodils are starting to pop up and they remind me that I have other surprises waiting in my yard for me this spring and summer! Love your store!

  67. Love the Petite Fleurs vase set. I can imagine an array of different spring flowers in the vases throughout the Spring season sitting in my kitchen window. But most of all I always have Mother's Day dinner at my home and I would use it for the centerpiece with the Lilies of the Valley from my garden in them.
    Thanks for the chance!
