Christmas at the Shop!

Finally got a gazillion pics uploaded tonight and thought that if I am going to share any of the shop at Christmas time with you I better get to it!
Enjoy browsing!
Double sided street sign...how appropriate for this time of year huh?

Apothecary was a recent find! I am loving this and plan on making room for it in my office after the holidays are over.


ho ho ho

Wanna to know something neat? This big old cupboard is actually Steven Spieburg's! It belongs to my landlords now but for those of you that don't know, the movie The Color Purple was filmed in Marshville (where my shop is located). My shop was actually the General Store in the movie! If you were to go watch the movie right now, you would see my shop~ the front porch~ everything! Oprah has been in my shop! Sure wish I had had it back then!! Sure wish she'd come back! Anyway back to the cupboard....Steven had two of these built as props for the movie and only one survived. It's a love/ hate relationship with the thing. It holds a TON, it weighs a TON, I can't ever move it and nothing ever sold from the bottom shelves. I just added the burlap a few weeks ago and I am loving it right now. However, there are those days I would love to call Spielburg and ask him to come pick it up!


words to live by!
NEW beeswax candles just arrived!
One of the most popular displays this year! Nothing moves on this old bike except the kickstand...kind of!
old sled never looked so good!

Gi~gundeous birdhouse


Perfect wreath to display all winter long

Canisters to store all kinds of cookies!


Hope you enjoyed your tour.
May you all be blessed with
Wynter Tyme Blessings! :0)

Now just how far is it from Dallas? Great stuff.
That cabinet is the bomb.com! How can you put a price on something that pays for itself.
I love that bike too. You could just call it a junker's version of a stationary bicycle! LOL

It's official! I've got to plan a trip to Tennessee so Connie and I can come visit the shop in the spring! Absolutely adorable - everything. She had told me about the bike and she was right, I can see why it's a favorite. Thanks for sharing and have a happy holiday, Dawn

After seeing the bike in your shop I copied the idea for the Christmas decorations at The Breeze Inn on Tybee Island. Found an old bike at the Tybee Dump, painted a basket lime green and wired it on, wrapped it with white lights and leaned against our picket fence--crowning Tybee Touch was the Budweiser box in the basket. And we won a decorating award. So thanks for the idea!
