I hope all of you are busy enjoying the wonders of this season. We have been so busy that we realized today that we haven't changed our Thankgiving photos or done a new blog. So today I am doing a short blog just to get the Christmas season up on our blog.
Will add more soon!

We have found ourselves very busy this fall and here we are at Thanksgiving already. Tomorrow we make our trek up north for our Thanksgiving feast with CJ's family on Thursday.

As we think about being thankful we can't not help but think of the many clients, friends and family that have supported us this past year in so many ways. We are grateful for each and everyone of you.

We are busy like elves in our studio and work shop getting much ready for our spaces at Bluedoor and Then and Now. CJ is doing a few last minute project for design clients. When we get back from Thanksgiving we will have more to share with you about our various projects and finds.

In the meantime may all of you have a wonderful time this Thanksgiving and coming holiday season.

Holiday Shopping and Supporting Local

We have been gearing up for the holidays with lots of vintage finds and new handmades for the holiday season. Tomorrow we are making a trip up north to restock at Then and Now. Then I we need to come back and work on product until we take a break again next week and head back up north for Thanksgiving with CJ's family and another load of goodies for Then and Now.
If you haven't been to Bluedoor here in Grand Rapids lately you have got to stop by and check things out. Christmas is beginning to make a big appearance at the store. We really feel like our space has never looked better. We have a new dealer across from us at Bluedoor who's look dovetails very nicely with us.
The last show we did was Beneath the Wreath about a week and a half ago. The show exceeded our expections and we loved the many new local shoppers we meet and introduced to Bluedoor. We value all of you who show up for our shows and patronize our spaces in Petoskey and Grand Rapids. Supporting local artists, antique dealers, local people who creat product and services is such an important way we can all support our ecomony and neighbors who are trying to make a living. So take the pledge with us to shop small, spend local, eat local, and enjoy local!
