It's Christmas & To Eleanor's House We Go

Our friends Eleanor and Bill have two splendid homes and love to decorate for Christmas. One is a ranch near Granbury and the other is right near us in Plano.

Fortunately, Eleanor is really fun and loves to decorate.

Especially at Christmas time!!

Take a look at the photos. Eleanor, her daughter Deborah and I (Gina) went to town with all the fabulous items that Eleanor stores away for this time of the year.

What is my favorite?

Possibly the server with an array of compotes and dishes containing all kinds of Christmas "goodies" Credit must be given to Eleanor and her decorator friend Barbara White for the basics already in place at the home. We just bought "snow" and went to town.

We'd love your comments on what is your favorite vignette.

Estate Sale is Ready to Go

Like many estates, the more we dig the more we find. This sale was no exception. The past few days we intense with the finding of antique dolls, jewelry, Tiffany, Lalique, sterling, and after realizing there seemed to be multiples, we counted 50 throw pillows and 5 couches. One can never have enough couches or pillows,,, "I guess". We also have CHAIRS! One set of 8 fabulous painted Chinese Chippendale style and one set of 6 extremely fine carved shieldback mahogany chairs. This has actually been an enjoyable challenge with the greatist family to do work for. It has been a pleasure to see such a caring and friendly unit. I must say that I have had the pleasure of meeting about a dozen family members that have all gotten along and all been extremely pleasant. It looks as though the weather is also going to be pleasant. There are alot of fine antiques and fine furniture at this sale. Our hours will be Friday from 9am to 5pm. Saturday we will open at 9am with a 25% discount. We may be eventually going to 50% off depending on the crowd. We will be closing at 4pm on Saturday. Please bring cash and a strong back. We will do our best to help.
Thanks and hope to see you there. For photos click on the attached web page at
