Prints for Child's Room

Hope you all had a really awesome Thanksgiving with family and friends!
It was really cold here so we had a roaring fire and hot cider - very cozy.
I totally skipped the black friday madness and decided to get a few
of our prints up on our site instead.
(probably should at least get dressed though!)I keep going out in the studio
(which is only heated by a gas fireplace that IS NOT ON today)
to take pictures. Have to come in every 4 or 5 minutes
to warm up my hands!  

We have some cute new ones though - thought you'd want to see them.
They are of some of our most popular sayings on our site.
 Printed them in color on some wonderful
matte finish smooth 60 lb photo paper
 and I think they look GREAT!
Here are a few...will be adding more as my hands thaw out! :)

Spokane Studio Open House

Thanks to all of you that came out for our studio open house this last weekend in Spokane.  We had a great response and loved meeting so many new fans!  The studio is looking great all Christmas'd up with lights and banners and greenery!  Smells good too! 

 The fire will be going next Saturday, Nov. 30 from 11-3,  as we will be open for "Small Business Saturday" but ONLY the SPOKANE studio - not our Webster Groves as Jan and her crew are all going to be with family for the weekend. 

 Bring a friend and come on by to enjoy some hot cider and home decor like you've never seen before ANYWHERE!!

Hello October!

I have no idea where September went.  
I barely knew she was around and then she just up and disappeared on me.  
But, ah, October...with her cool nights, changing leaves and ripe glad she is here. 
 I hear there is a remake of the popular "Anne of Green Gables" in the works.  
She said it well...

Hope you have a great one!!

Just in time for weekend shopping...

I am SO ready for the weekend even though it probably involves me fixing a flat tire and replacing a belt on the rider mower!  I'm hoping I can bribe a "still home for the summer" teenager to do it for some chocolate chip cookies though...wish me luck.
I've been designing a lot this last week or so.  
Here are just a few of our newest designs I've come up with for your weekend shopping pleasure.

Shameless pitch - The Inn at Oaklawn Farms

I am going to make a shameless pitch for my brother's new business adventure.
He recently purchased this gorgeous old manse in Carrollton, GA,
The Inn at Oak Lawn Farms.

Carrollton, GA is about 45 minutes SW of Atlanta.  If you live in the area or know anyone who does - this is an amazing place for weddings, 
private parties or corporate events.

My brother has been working tirelessly since May to get the place back up and running to host events.
My husband, Jim, and I spent a few days this summer helping him out.
When we arrived, the amount of work seemed overwhelming,
but I had a blast!
We cleaned, did many projects, and moved around A LOT of furniture and decor to give it a fresh look.  
At the end of my three days there,
I was truly in love and obsessed with this place!  
It is loaded with character and grace!
The history of this property alone is incredible!
Here is a small teaser:

Of course, we had to add a touch of Old Barn Rescue Company!
-Adonna designed a new sign for the entrance
(the sign is not quite complete - but it will be amazing!):

-Here is the newly designed name created by Adonna and displayed on the front of the home:

-And here are a few of our windows now displayed and on sale throughout the home:

Oaklawn Farms truly is a beautiful place inside and out.  
They are hosting their first official Open House with Simply Catering 
Sunday, August 25th from 6-8 pm.  
This is the perfect opportunity to sample great food and see this special event venue!

You can follow them on Facebook or go to their website for more information:
