~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here it comes.....ready or not!  Christmas

is on its way and we have "decked our halls"

with lots of recycled holiday

goodies, decor, furniture, and more!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You"ll find glitter and baubles.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

trees made of metal....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  and primitive wood trees

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and stars...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Snow village houses.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

red shiny and silver....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

turqouise and blue -

with the beach in a ball!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even Santa's glasses

adorning a vintage tree.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These little gourd snowmen

are made locally.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have lots of locally made goodies like...

a variety of twig framed original photos by

Laura Heilman from Roopville..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and cards printed from the original

artwork of local artist,

Sally Jones.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ronda Robinson made up

a beautiful selection of pottery ornaments....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My daughter, Hannah, is felting again -

she's made felt covered soap and

these darling little felt acorns....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My other daughter, Jessie,

has been busy creating these

wonderful wreaths from

vintage books and music....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My employee ("daughter"), Laura,

made darling feather fascinators....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And I even got to have some fun myself and

made these soy teacup candles that

smell like hot holiday drinks

(like mulled cider and peppermint tea).....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mandy Roach brought in some

of her pretty new artwork.

Of course, I love the birds best...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And with our usual fun fare like

Janet's goatmilk soap,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Olivia's jellies and preserves,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and Charlotte's everchanging

masterpieces -

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why would you need to shop anywhere else?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We even have a good variety of

new (old) furniture...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


(a rare pair of twin beds)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And a light  fixture that

we have dubbed our

"redneck chandelier"...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Plus, you can feel good knowing

that you shopped "green" -

buying American,  recycled treasures

and supporting our local economy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

We will be taking more

vintage consignment furniture

after the holidays -

 remember us when you are

rearranging to make room for

your new Christmas stuff.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The winner of our $25 gift certificate

this month is Michael Avery

and I forgot to announce

last month's - Jamie Townsend!

Congratulations!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you can't find the perfect present,

remember we have gift certificates....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Or, just come in and pet Morris!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have a Merry Christmas!

Cindy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope you make lots of

wonderful Christmas memories -

here's one of mine.....

Her spirit lives on.....




 

 


 

 

November Twig Tales

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We've had a beautiful fall, a taste of winter

and now Thanksgiving is around the corner.

We have so much to be thankful for.

I am personally thankful that

my daughter just got married

to a wonderful guy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now  I can think about things other than

wedding plans.....like our Christmas



We would love for you to join us on Thursday,

Friday, or Saturday - the 15th, 16th and 17th for lots

of fun, food and Christmas decor.  There will be taste

testing of Olivia's goodies, special jewelry sales,

a new line of candles, and lots of great deals!

We will stay late (9:00) on Thursday night so you

can come after dinner and take your time and browse.

Be sure and mark your calendar!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So maybe you need a few things for your

Thanksgiving get together?

We have a wide variety of tables...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and chairs...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and other things you might need

for Thanksgiving...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(What a cool set of retro dishes!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are also thankful for our wonderful customers.

You make our store possible, interesting, and fun.

Like Bill and Tura Anthony and their pups.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am thankful, too, for our dealers and consignors.

They give Feathers and Twigs

the variety that insures

 that you never know what you'll find

when you come in!

Charlotte keeps things interesting with her

ever changing artwork.

A sample of her latest scene

in her new style.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My friend, Carol Walker, is now in charge

of the Carroll County Animal Shelter.

She is an energetic, dedicated animal lover who is

making positive changes for our county's

homeless animals. Let's help her out!

You can get a great deal on this kitty litter

and the CCAS will get the proceeds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, we are collecting old towels and blankets

to help make the cat and dog "nests" a little cozier. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To lure you in to see our Christmas treasures,

I want to share a few "sneak peeks".

After all - it is Christmas and

the time of year for surprises!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, come see us! Please remember the

Christmas Open House on the 15th, 16th, and 17th

and invite your friends and family.....

Hope to see you then,

Cindy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That precious grandchild would love this

vintage kid's rocker....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A pair of girly wicker chairs.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And this pretty toile wingback....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An adorable desk chair...

Even a chair with a tie seat!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We also have barstools like

these rattan ones....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and this great set of four mid-century style stools....

(wouldn't these look great in a beach house?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of the beach....if you are missing it,

maybe one of Charlotte's beach paintings might help.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She brings in new painting daily.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In fact, we get lots of new stuff daily.

Like this great old, working typewriter.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And a huge collection of artglass..

(here's a small sampling)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And a collection of wonderful old postcards .....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Besides our beeswax candles,

we are now carrying

Michael's delicious sourwood honey

from the north Georgia mountains....

July Twig Tales

Posted on July 3, 2012 at 5:25 PM Comments comments (0)

HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

         Hope you are having fun celebrating our country's independence today. We are so lucky to live where we are free to make our own life choices - one of which is where we choose to shop.

                         We want you to shop at Feathers and Twigs!  Not only is this a thrifty choice  - you will also be helping planet earth by recycling homegoods.

          All of our inventory has been "previously loved", but still has lots of great years of use left.

Why buy new when old is so much better?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

         Jamie Townsend will get to shop for free this month! She is the lucky winner of our drawing for a $25 gift certificate.

                You can be lucky, too - just register to win every time you come in!

Also, every Thursday in July you can get 10% off everything in the store!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is a sampling of what you might find

when you stop in....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have two of these amazing teak benches!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A beautiful painted dining set.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lots of "beachy" finds.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A pretty little handmade table........

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This cool old cash register.......

(it works!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A beautiful vintage sofa....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lots of painted little black tables....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And this gorgeous "quilt art"!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have a new name for our side room.

It is now the FIY room -full of things you can "fix yourself".

     All you pintrest people can find just what you need for your next creative idea!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have old doors, windows, mantels,

and furniture that could use some loving attention.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And to inspire you to DIY,  here are a few before and afters....

      These first ones were sent to me by a customer, Sarah Butts (thanks Sarah!). She bought some ugly tables from us and saw potential in them that even I couldn't see! Look  how her creativity transformed them into beautiful tables for her new apartment......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pretty impressive, huh?

Here are some more amazing make-overs. These were done by our very own Laura Boldt, who works in the store. She's pretty talented .......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

         Our very own Charlotte Scarce is also skilled in the recycling department. You'll have to come visit to see some of her cool furniture makeovers. She is also a talented artist and has added a few things to her repertoire.

             Her polka dot fish are flying (swimming?)out of the store.......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    She's trying out a new "folk art" style. What do you think?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Come see the rest of our ever-changing , interesting stuff at the store. I bet you'll find something you love!

Hope to see you soon -

We are having a big

how much you can save.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You can take over $65 off the price of

this pretty black hutch!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Taking 20% off this gorgeous dresser

would make it  $200, instead of $250!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And get a deal on this fun swing -
you'll save almost $50!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This sale will last two days only,
so now is the time to get

out of reclaimed wood.

Isn't this farm table beautiful?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This sofa/tv/entry table is great, too...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I  bet you could find a spot for this

pretty green plant stand...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are all dressed up for spring

with pretty things for your table.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And for your garden or porch....

This month our gift certificate winner

is a customer who registers every time she

comes in (and it finally paid off!).

Congratulations to Wakeelah Rashed!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     I want to thank all of you who shared your condolences after the death of my sister. Last weekend we celebrated her life with a big party and it was such a wonderful way to say good bye to her. It was so heartwarming to see how many people loved her and how much she influenced those around her. As part of our committment to honor her life, my family is making an effort to carry a little "Susan" with us on a daily basis. That means we live in the moment, keep a childlike sense of wonder at the world around us, be more playful, have more fun, and generally just be silly sometimes. My mother got into this spirit after the service and showed where Susan may have learned her flair for the dramatic with this great pose....

Susan does live on!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope to see you in the store soon!


Cindy


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ashlyn is now a very shy little girl -

hope this stage won't las too long!

March Twigs Tales

Posted on March 22, 2012 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It has officially arrived, but has unofficially

been here for some time. It followed the "winter that wasn't" (to quote a cutomer).

               Nevertheless, nature is putting on a quite a show and Easter is fast approaching. Time to spring clean and freshen up your nest - and where better to find what you need than Feathers and Twigs?

We have all kinds of new (old) stuff , wonderful local  artwork, locally made jams and jellies, antique dishes and glasswear, vintage Easter hats and gloves, Easter baskets, spring wreaths and so much more! Please include us on your next outing - you could go for a ride to  see all the spring blooms and then browse around Feathers and Twigs,  as well as all the other fun places to shop in our area. Be sure and ask for one of our new antiquing brochures that will direct you to a day's worth of great shopping  around west Georgia.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's a sampling of some of our new goodies......

How about a newly spruced up patio set?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Newly built benches that are primed

and ready to paint some bright, spring color

(they can also be shelves when stacked!).....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A simply gorgeous shabbied white buffet...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A variety of wicker for your porch or patio...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(we have two of these.....)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is that time of year when you put away

your winter clothes and blankets -

do you need more storage space?

Here are a few ideas...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This little cabinet could fit in

anywhere in your house!.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have lots of dressers and chests of drawers...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is an amazing jewelry/lingerie chest...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trunks and chests are great for storage

(we have quite a few).......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This homemade old door halltree with

a storage bench could come in handy, too...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The same craftsman made

this (also handy) primitive looking shelf

with a glass door......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And he built this great coffee table...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Somtimes we find things but aren't able to find

their rightful owners.

I am going to try posting these "lost and found" items

and see what happens....

We had a three legged shelf that

someone bought as is - later I found the fourth leg!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A lady who bought a rocker with

gold seat (we think) left this nice raincoat .....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

           Just as the seasons change and spring's rebirth is a part of the circle of life, death is also a part of it all. My family has just experienced this with the unexpected passing of my sister, Susan. We have all been so sad to have to let her go, but we are finding ways to honor her memory and her spirit. She was the most upbeat, happy, alive-in-the-moment person I have ever known. She was a "starving artist" and never had material riches. She was also the richest person I have ever known. She only shopped at thrift stores and LOVED Feathers and Twigs. She recycled everything (mostly out of necessity, but also in her artistic way). It will be hard to throw away all the Christmas wrapping paper this year, as she loved flattening out and saving all the "best" paper to use again next year! So, while she leaves a small carbon footprint, she leaves huge footprints on the hearts of all who knew her. This picture is from last year on my birthday (she had made me a Feathers and Twigs scrapbook).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It has been hard to write this newsletter, knowing that  my biggest fan won't be here to read it, to comment, and to even make copies of it ! But, I'd love to keep her spirit alive by suggesting that you make an effort to enjoy every minute of every day and focus on what you have (versus what you don't have!). We may be in a recession, but there is still beauty and wonder all around us - Susan saw it every day and we can all learn from that. I found this Anne Frank quote in Susan's sketchbook -

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy." That about sums Susan up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She was a wonderful big sister!

We are having a "Celebration of her Life" Memorial and Art Show on her birthday, April 7th. If you knew her and would like to attend, just ask and I'll give you the details.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This month's winner

of our $25 gift certificate is .......

Nicole Chapman!

Everyone else - be sure and register to win

every time you come in!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope to see you soon!

Happy Valentine's Day!


Hope there is lots of love in your nest today!



♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, hope you love  your nest.

If you'd like to  re-feather it  and

make it something a little more lovable.....

come see what we have at Feathers and Twigs.

We think you will find items that are unique and special -

just like you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Where else could you find these clay

Adam and Eve figurines?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 a vintage autoharp,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Or a vintage "chickie" lamp with burlap shade?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You could certainly "personlize" your home with this hand-carved Indian head statue.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your table would be really "special"

if you set it with vintage daisy dinnerware...

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        Your home's personality would light up

with this "one of a kind"  tramp art lamp

        (made of popsicle sticks and marbles!)....

 

  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why  have a "cookie-cutter" home

when you could make it unique with antique trunks....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

unique artwork like this

colored gravel mosaic...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Charlotte Scarce's special works of art....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a seventies sailboat painting....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

or even a set of four vintage framed airplane prints?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nothing says "unique" quite like

a retro ceramic lemon tree!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Which would go well with

vintage crewel and needlepoint pillows....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then you could always add a little interest

with retro radios and clocks,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

vintage typewriters,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

or an old camera...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You could be the only one on your block

with recycled album flowers in your garden...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

or a glass art sculpture votive holder...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

or your very own herd of goats!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Maybe you have a unique fashion sense -

if so, you should love our selection of

vintage clothes and assessories.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You can even "make your own"

with one of our vintage patterns for only $1!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some of our goods come with

interesting stories...

like this darling doll bed that

a consignor found under the Christmas tree

as a child  in the forties!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some of what we have is not only

beautiful and unique, but useful as well!

My brother-in-law hand dips these candles

with the wax from his bees....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Justine makes beautiful "novel roses"

like these on this wreath....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And my husband has just built this

wonderful table that would be perfect

for your large screen TV and assessories......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We just got in this very unique

and gorgeous armoire/bar/cabinet

that has a myriad  of uses.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

 this wonderful old "swan neck" sofa...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and this recently recovered charming bench....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If nothing else, at least you can be unique

with a vintage trash can!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The truth is, all of you, are unique and special people

(and that is why you shop here!).

We love to find fun things you

might like for your nest/home.

Thanks so much for supporting

Feathers and Twigs with your patronage.

We ♥ you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope to see you soon!


Cindy

P.S.S. - A picture of one

very special little girl...

Welcome 2012 -  may it be a wonderful year !

We are looking forward to another great year at Feathers and Twigs - meeting new people, watching  treasures come in and then go out to their new homes , learning creative new ideas for old things,  hearing  decorating success stories and saving and making money for everyone - it is a very rewarding business!

       We are starting out the year with some great  new items like this sewing machine base with a newly built wood top.......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A comfy little chaise lounge....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And this soft Italian leather armchair...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have this gorgeous old (freshly painted)

table and six chairs.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We also have a few items freshly painted

this lively "spring" green......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This pretty gold dresser needs a good home

(and has been recently marked down).........

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have a new gardening section to get you thinking ahead to spring.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Charlotte is her "marsh phase"....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pretty, huh?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And Scott has completed another of his

super sturdy, beautiful  kitchen islands....

(remember - he can do special orders!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Golfers will love his putting practice holes

and handmade putters...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can't believe that this adorable piece

is still here...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(By the way - Angelia Sprewell won the

gift certificate this month)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This zebra striped chair won't be here long.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Check out our newly reorganized jewelry section...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have all kinds of stuff you'll love....

like lamps....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

framed artwork....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

fiestaware....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 vintage sheet music....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

old mantles and doors...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

real shabby chic....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and even handpainted, recycled bottles

for hummingbird feeders!

(I hear the hummers will be back in March?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We've started thinking about Valentine's Day.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you've started thinking about decorating

for St. Valentine's,

here are a few ideas I found that

you might like......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A burlap pillow like this could be used

all year long - you can buy burlap

and pillow forms next door

at the Fabric Peddler,

or you can buy a premade one from us!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is amazing what you can do

with rose petals...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And branches....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And old windows...

(we have plenty of these to pick from)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and picture frames and old vases....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just have fun!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We would LOVE for you to do your shopping with us!

And while you are here,

be sure and check out the everchanging

1/2 price table.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and warm up with a cup of hot Russian tea...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope to see you soon!


Cindy
