Spring has Sprung

It’s been a busy, busy, winter, but Spring has finally sprung in the Shenandoah Valley! The redbud trees are in full-on beautiful magenta bloom, with dogwood as a snowy white backdrop. It is the absolutely perfect time to drive down Route 11 (or up!). The Valley is dressed for a party, but you better hurry, the show lasts just a short time!

If you’ve been following my website, you have probably noticed A LOT of furniture marked with big bold red ‘SOLD’s. It must have been the wonderfully warm days of February that got folks out & antiquing with a vengeance! We’re having fun trying to find replacement pieces for all the great things that have found new homes. I just posted a nice, almost 5 foot (shy 2″), local farm table from the Forestville area in south central Shenandoah County, Virginia. It wears an old apple green paint & has a drawer almost 40″ deep. In the workshop, awaiting some gentle restoration, are two cupboards, one in a great dark electric blue! It will be a couple weeks or so before they are both in the shop, so keep watching the ‘Furniture’ page.

In the meantime, hop in your car & come visit the Valley!
