How Does Such a Mess.....
We make such messes when we refinish!.....
It makes me wonder how we turn messes into pretty things!
We are two sisters that have found joy in many endeavors over the years which include wholesale floral design, floral designs for weddings and for the past 10 years have passionately settled on the love of restoring vintage furniture from the 1920s-40s back to perfect condition. We lovingly restore each piece, adding our special embellishments and crystal knobs. Our furniture is one-of-a kind, functional pieces of art to use for many years to come!

Our Favorite Poem of the Season
Asking for Roses A house that lacks, seemingly, mistress and master,
With doors that none but the wind ever closes,
Its floor all littered with glass and with plaster;
It stands in a garden of old-fashioned roses.
I pass by that way in the gloaming with Mary;
'I wonder,' I say, 'who the owner of those is.'
'Oh, no one you know,' she answers me airy,
'But one we must ask if we want any roses.'
So we must join hands in the dew coming coldly
There in the hush of the wood that reposes,
And turn and go up to the open door boldly,
And knock to the echoes as beggars for roses.
'Pray, are you within there, Mistress Who-were-you?'
'Tis Mary that speaks and our errand discloses.
'Pray, are you within there? Bestir you, bestir you!
'Tis summer again; there's two come for roses.
'A word with you, that of the singer recalling--
Old Herrick: a saying that every maid knows is
A flower unplucked is but left to the falling,
And nothing is gained by not gathering roses.'
We do not loosen our hands' intertwining
(Not caring so very much what she supposes),
There when she comes on us mistily shining
And grants us by silence the boon of her roses. Robert Frost
Yes, it's me! Linda
Just adding a face, I'm one of the sisters! It's always nice to know who you are visiting!
