Got Lamps ???

Sure do !!! I have received a large shipment of eighteen lamps . They very in size from a small tea box lamp to table lamps in interesting shapes. My husband stopped by the store when I was unpacking and loved the Monroe lamp. It is a red canister with wheat painted on the side. I matched it up with a black shade and it looks very sharp.

Not only did the lamps come in but the rest of the textile order among which are pillows and new coverlets. I will be unpacking the boxes of signs today also. The storeroom is crammed with boxes and I am working feverishly to get everything into the store.

Textiles Just Arrived!!

Textiles and more on their way. Coverlets, blankets, table squares and throws are stacked on the table while I was pricing them but now they are tucked into their cupboard for easy viewing. Some of the coverlets are a summer weight making them a little lighter. Next week the coordinating pillows will arrive .

Kitchen Cupboard

At one time this butter yellow kitchen cupboard was a dream come true for the homemaker that had it in her kitchen. I love all the drawers at the bottom for ideal storage. The cupboard also boasts four bread boards that slide out. If the double doors are opened at the top two short bread boards will be exposed. The other two are under the work surface. Imagine her delight to be able to have all that "modern" convenience.

I had every intention of having a post up for the fourth to salute our country but time has just flown by for us. Our family enjoyed the tradition of drinking lemonade from the old family churn on July 4th. It is a time that we remember our family and our country. The grandsons now look forward to sharing the experience . Of course what they really enjoyed was the homemade ice cream.
