We am closing in on the deadline for the opening of the Designer Show house that we are involved in. The Showhouse is to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Holland, called "Home for the Holidays" it will open Nov. 13 and run the 28th and be open for private parties Nov 27- Dec 12. The address is 720 Goldenrod, Holland, Michigan. (for those of you who use GPS!)
Behind the scenes right now Doug Taylor had been painting our space, the upstairs north guest bedroom and bath. Kim Beckman from the Homestead Shop is reupholstering an antique chair, Shari Burmeister of Workroom II is crafting delightful lamps shades, Connie Maitland is creating Christmas majic, Elizabeth Austin of Elizabeth Austin Fine Lines formerly Devries and Doornbos of Holland has loaned us the greatest Pine Cone Hill bedding that I will combine with some other really great antique quilts from the 30's and 40's along with vintage 1960's sheets & vintage draperies. Dan is creating and painting furniture. Susan & Barry from The Shade Shop are donating curtain rods. So it's all coming together and I can't wait for you ALL to see it! Most everything in our space will be for sale so it can be a shopping extravaganza too. It's going to be fun!!! Hope to see you all there!
