The Long Hot Summer

Yes, we are in the "thick of it", as the old Texans would say. With 100 degree weather every day now, it's time to get out and smell the roses. I'm not quite sure how we have managed to find the merchandise but we have added several key pieces to our inventory. One of my favorites is the velvet settee. Can anyone tell me why old velvet attracts me like it does??? I love it all and can't get enough of it. I managed to score on a sweet little Italian chandelier too.
To think Warrenton is just around the corner is making me nervous. HEEELLLLLPPPP!!!
Sure hope it cools off by then.

Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa.../Tooting our Horn!

Yes,Virginia, there IS a Santa.. and he brought us a bounty of merchandise this week!! Just look at the Cool Stuff! From Vintage Christmas to Industrial, to hotel silver, buttons galore, sconces, jewelry, glassware, mirrors... we got it all this week from our secret source (that would be Alan, not really Santa). I guess Christmas IS also in July!
