We have to mention the bridal dress gracing the bed below. This was the stunning 1950's bride that wore this. The veil was made by the Kay Ragan shop of Wilkes-Barre. Anyone who grew up in this area in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's knows this exclusive dress shop of the era. My prom dress came from there and I felt like royalty! Her dress came from NYC, Joel of Murray Hamburger. These gowns of that period are magnificent. The veil could not be displayed being so fragile.
The Melbourne. From the Renaissance, as wealth and luxury spread over Europe, there developed a style in Italy known as the Baroque. Although more dignified in character, it showed a strong French influence. This style describes well lavish suite with its gracefully outlined mirror frame and bed panels. Walnut panels and all drawers have oak bottoms, sides, and backs. The hardware of Old French Finish harmonizes perfectly in color and design. As we were photographing these pieces the two dressers sold!

I can hardly believe it is that time of year again. I picked the pumpkins and gourds from my garden for the occasion. They will grace the front of the shoppe in my old painted wheelbarrow. I'm very proud of these little guys! So let the Fall begin!
