Hard Work, Many Hands, Beautiful Results – 1920’s inspired shoot

Almost a year ago now, in June 2013, I put together a styled shoot showcasing inventory from Borrowed, the talents of some local vendors and the free and donated services of some beautiful models, a barn location, a cottage and property, some muscle and some co-ordination help.

Who knew how much work it would be or that it would take me almost a year to share it?    The barn is gone now, torn down which makes it all the more special to have this remembrance.

Eclectic Seating – New for 2014

This season I am excited to offer eclectic seating for ceremony sites and receptions.  While I have always had a selection of chairs, benches and pews, I have expanded the numbers and I’m offering package pricing.  Just tell me the number you need to seat and whether or not you want a mix and match of everything, or chairs only, and I’ll put together the perfect combination for your space.

This pricing will be $4 per chair/$5 per seat on bench or pew.   There are 150 chairs available, seating for 26 on pews and another 10 on benches.  And of course I now have the 12 matching 12 foot pews with seating for approximately 85.

Here are pictures of a couple of sets ups to fuel your imagination!  (all chairs, benches, pews are not pictured)

Maybe you’re not a country music fan, but I am.   Die. Hard.  I go to concerts whenever and wherever I can.  I sing and play guitar.  I buy downloads of songs and for about five years I purchased every single issue of Country Weekly.  When I decided I wanted to train for and run a full marathon, it was the Country Music Marathon in Nashville that my sister, brother-in-law and I completed.  So this quote from a Garth Brooks (yes I have seen him in concert) song was just the ticket to describe my latest yard sale find.  Two perfect roseback side chairs.  Of course they didn’t look quite like this when purchased, but with a little TLC, some new fabric and the talent of Karen Stanley Hamilton (upholstery expert) they are all prettied up and ready to go.  I can hear them singing to each other now:    “So draw the curtain, honey turn the lights down low.  We’ll find some country music on the radio”.  Wait a second, now they’re dancing.   ALL the chairs are dancing.    And just like that there’s a party happening in the shop.
