About two months ago Home Again commissioned Keystone Heirlooms to make six pieces of furniture. They included three bookcases, barn red, moss green and our favorite black all in a prim finish. Also two sleigh benches that can actually store things and one potting table. Our Amish friends delivered this load last night around eight o'clock and it was a real family affair! It was wonderful getting to know these people and the beautiful "well behaved" children. Using heirlooms from family members that you cherish is a great way to decorate. But sometimes we don't have that honor. So let Keystone Heirlooms create these for you and start your own tradition. All of the pieces can be done in northern pine, maple or cherry. Also there is a fantastic selection of stains if you don't care for painted furniture.

This beautiful mahogany breakfront and coffee table is by none other than The Kittinger Furniture Company of days gone by when it comes to quality. Very traditional but still deserves the fireworks I'm about to give it. These furniture makers are few and far between. This quality today would cost a "house and a lot!"

This is a real treasure. Any prince or princess would be honored to start life in this handmade piece made by the Amish in Lancaster. It is fashioned after the older cradles and made of solid oak. It would also be an ideal storage spot for a little girl's doll collection. A must see.
The quilted bedding gracing this wonderful black prim finish pencil post bed from American Heritage is called Primitive Star by the Victorian Heart Co. The colors are dark burgundy, cream and tan all 100% cotton fabric. VHC's Fall catalog preview has arrived and the colors are spectacular! Also this is shown in Country Sampler Magazine.

This darling settee arrived today. It just screamed girly-girl! Picture it underneath a sunny window and taking center stage in a soothing bedroom retreat, a cottage foyer or a cozy enclosed porch. Maybe under a gauzy canopy heaped with flower-strewn pillows inviting daydreams.
