From the Backyard

Today my good friend Flo asked me to come over to the home of Bill and Linda, her son and his wife. She wanted me to take pictures of this amazing backyard transformation. I recall lots of grass and bye-bye! No more grass to cut. All beautiful pavers and landscaping. Bill is a landscaper. Do ya think? They would like to enter his works in Birds and Blooms magazine. Beauty in your own backyard. This is just a sneak peak of just some pics that I like. Good luck guys.

New Arrival

This very funky cafe table and chairs just screams modern. It is actually a prototype that Ethan Allen came up with. This ain't your grandma's breakfast table.! Very "avant garde".

New Arrival

There is nothing like a piece of Hitchcock furniture. Just talk to the people that collect it. It is unmistakable. The color of this dry sink and matching chair is perfect for Fall decorating. Use plenty of natural textures. Seasonal fruits and gourds. Display your collections . Set a historical tone. Give a Colonial space a little dash with a decoy resting in a bed of greens. A sure conversation piece.

Forget The Jewels

Can you say F A B U L O U S ? This woven coverlet came to us today. So appropriate for the pencil post bed. It was born in the 1800's! What a masterful pattern and glorious colors. For all the collectors this is a winner.

My Kind of Town

Today a good friend to Home Again invited my friend Diana and me to attend a private showing of an estate sale he is conducting. It was in historic downtown Lewisburg. The house was pure colonial circa 1800. I have not visited that town since the 1980's when my son was 16 years old and took the prestigious Governor's Award for the Arts in photography. He spent a summer cession at Bucknell. The town is still charming. The shops are lots of fun! I wish Luzerne would adopt some of this charm. Here are some photos that caught my eye.
These are some of the pieces that caught my eye. I especially loved the cellar and these prim pieces. You can just picture the school master teaching at this desk in the 1800's. The house is being refurbished and this will become a pub!

A New Angle

Trying out my son's new wide angle lens, it puts the shoppe in a new perspective. Amazing! I think I need to get me one of these.

Hot Dog Charlie!

This is Charlie the mooching squirrel. He lives next door. Here he waits patiently for a hot dog from the homeowner. This routine has been going on all summer. He sits perfectly still in this spot, then at the appropriate moment moves in to claim his booty. Sorry, I missed a photo of Charlie carting off his dinner.
