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

Does your nest need a little decorating?

Let Feathers and Twigs help!

We have a huge variety of recycled furniture,

homegoods and decor that could help make your 

nest a little "homier" for the holidays.

Like this......


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

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

We have a great selection of last minute

Christmas decorations and emergency presents...

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


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

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

Handmade cards make a gift really special....

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

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

How about something really big

this year for Christmas?

We have some wonderful big items that

have small pricetags. for example -

this wardrobe is very old and very beautiful...

(It has just been marked down $200)

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


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

This not-quite-as-big wardrobe is nice, too.

Wardrobes are great for storing your extra sweaters

and jackets. This one is only $229...

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

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

Big chest of drawers could

come in handy this time of year, too!

These are both on sale for $225...

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


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

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

Here's a huge shelf for some real

storage solutions. This one is now $199

(and we have another one just like it!)

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

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

For kitchen storage, this pie safe

with a wire front might just fit perfectly

in your house. It is only $229...

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



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

How about a big old gas stove to

add some charm and warmth to your kitchen?

This one could be made to work and

is on sale for $425....

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


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

Here's a really big entertainment system

storage cabinet that has a nice fresh

coat of white paint and

"slide out of the way" louvered doors.

It could be yours for $439.....

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

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

If your style is more rustic, this is a

 handmade shelf made from

reclaimed lumber.

You can take it home for $219!


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


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

If you'd like a really big present for Christmas,

you might just have to have this old postal desk

that is marked "New York  1950" on the back.

It is truly a special piece and

is now on sale for $925.....

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

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

If you need  a little extra seating

for the holidays, this tasteful homemade table

could be just the perfect solution.

It is only $499...

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


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

We also just got in another beautiful

island handmade by my husband.....

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

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

Like some big art?

The famous big "Boots" painting

is now on sale for $200....


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


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

The best way to see our huge variety

and great prices is to come in and

check it out in person!

You can enjoy some homemade goodies

(like my mother's famous banana nut bread),

some hot tea and

great old music as you shop.

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

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

This month, we drew Carolyn Berry's name

to win a $25 gift certificate.

Merry Christmas, Carolyn!

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

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


We will be marking things down

regularly to make way for

new stuff for the new year.

And, we'll be open all through

the holidays

except for the 25th and 26th

and the 1st and the 2nd.


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

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


Here's something any woman can appreciate:


Three Wise Women would have.....

Asked for directions.

Arrived on time,

Helped deliver the baby,

Cleaned the stable,

Made a casserole,

Brought practical gifts and

There would be Peace on Earth.


Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Hope to see you soon (and often!)-

Cindy


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

Ashlyn is two and is still too cute,

even if she is picking out her own clothes now!

October Twigs Tales

Posted on October 23, 2011 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (0)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

     We are ready for Halloween!!!  Hope you are, too - but if not.....stop in and see us - we have fun decorations and ideas. Also, we have a good variety of vintage clothes and accessories to help inspire your last minute costume!

         At Feathers and Twigs, we want to help you decorate your nest - either by sharing ideas and suggestions or helping you find just the right item for your home (even if it means sending you to another store!).

            Here are a few quick and easy Halloween ideas I'd like to share....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Isn't this a cute wreath made out of black tulle?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

What a great use for mason jars, candy corn,

and the last of the marigolds!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

How about recycling those milkjugs?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We have your orange and black fashions.....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

And Halloween scented soy candles...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

         We even have a special treat for you!  We will be offering 10% off anything in the store from now until Thanksgiving. The trick is - you have to ask for it!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

                     Olivia is wrapping up her Thanksgiving and Christmas gift baskets. To let you try her yummy goodies, we will be having a "Sweets and Treats" sampling day on Saturday, November the 12th.  Your taste buds will thank you!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

                      Don't let the cold weather dry out your skin! Stock up on Janet's goat milk soap - she has lots of wonderful scents to pick from.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Charlotte is going through her "pear phase" -

(bet you'll want a pair!)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

And Suzie has been making these beautiful terrariums....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I just love the "novel roses" that Justine made

from book pages for these wreaths....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

And now for some of the new goodies we have in...

like this verstile wicker cart

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

a beautiful dresser....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

and this unique red desk....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

a pretty corner cupboard...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We have a variety of mercury glass items....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

and lots of pretty cut glass

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There are so many ways you could use this

great cedar chest....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Or this unusual black sidetable

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

and such a gorgeous fall oil painting!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We pride ourselves on finding unusal items...

(what a bottle!)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Need to get "back in the saddle"?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is an amazingly cool

midcentury modern stereo.....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You know you want this old school map!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

                Patty Shiver shared this picture of their new

kitchen island that my husband, Scott,  built.

Looks like it found a good home!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

          Carolyn Cribb took my advice and registered to win our $25 gift certificate everytime she came in -  she increased her odds and won this month! Congratulations, Carolyn!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

       My daughter, Hannah, got married last month and I'd like to share with you these beautiful photos made by Sugarsnap Photography. These are our first two "preview" pictures , and we can't wait to see the rest! We highly recommend their services....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

         That's all for now! Remember to ask for 10%

 off when you come in......

Hope to see you soon!


Cindy

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        Ashlyn dropped in for a visit last week  - she just turned two and is still too cute!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^




September Twig Tales

Posted on September 21, 2011 at 3:20 PM Comments comments (0)

       Ahhhh......fall is finally in the air!

We are loving this cooler weather here at the shop and we think you might, too.

             I like to think of what we do as "finding good homes" for the things we sell. Sometimes we have that "perfect fit" - just what you are looking for at just the right price!

  It makes me happy knowing that special pieces find good homes at your houses where they will be loved and cared for for years to come.  This month I'd like to share with you some of our great items that need "adopting"....

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

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

This gorgeous china cabinet will require a

very special home!

(Or make yours very special)

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

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

This freshly painted buffet would do well in

most any home...

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

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

but  this darling stool might require

just the right home

to fit in with your color scheme.

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

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

        This great trunk could be perfectly at home in a college student's apartment, as well your lake house.

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

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

This  nice footed cast iron tub will require a home that may be getting a new bathroom.

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


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

We have "dogs" for you to take home - like this painting of a pretty retriever..

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

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

a pug on a pillow.....

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

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

a pair of sad eyed hounds

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

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

and a pup made of metal parts!

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

      Oh --- by the way, October is national Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog month, so if you are interested in adding some love to your home by  getting a real pet - check out the ones available at the new and improved Carrollton Animal Shelter!


                    http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/GA38.html

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

But, if you have to stick to the

"easy to care for"

type pet -

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

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

We have cats - the traditional variety.....

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

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

as well as retro styles!

You might like a bunny (in porcelin)...

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

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

Or one in blue glass....

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

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

Or chickies...

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

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

or hens and roosters....

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

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

(which sell very fast!)

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

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

Other barnyard animals include....

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

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

pigs and sheep.....

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

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

and horses and cows, too!

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

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

And of course we have birds!

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

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
fat ones...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
skinny ones...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

ones on purple

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

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

and framed ones, too..

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

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

Rustic birds...

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

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

elegant swans

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

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

and majestic owls

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

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

a pouting parrot

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

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

and even a pair of

pin cushions birds!

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

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

Maybe you are fond of fishes.....

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


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

we have a variety of those....

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

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

to suit any style....

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

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

We can't leave out jungle animals

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

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

and even a pair of mooses (mice?)

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

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

   So come on in and visit us - we want to help you find the perfect items to make your nest a home.

You'll find a wide variety, good prices, and friendly faces.

You might even win the $25 gift certificate that we give away every month - like Kathy Calhoun just did!

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

We've been decorating for fall......

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

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

Come get inspired!

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

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

Hope to see you soon!

Technical Difficulties!

     If you have come to this site and found all my blogs missing, it is because Webs.com is having problems and is still working to resolve them. I hope I can write my September Twig Tales soon - we have lots of good stuff in the store I want to tell you about!

      Hopefully, this hot summer will be winding down soon. With fall on the way, I get the urge to
clean out and get organized ( not that I really
 do it!) .For some inspiration to  reorganize and redecorate your home, stop in and check out our "previously loved" inventory. We are the perfect
place for college sutdents to find what they need
for their new apartments. Buying used homegoods
is not only a wonderful way to recycle, it also is
a great way to save money!
       This month I want to share a sampling of just how much money you can save by shopping at
Feathers and Twigs.....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Our comfy tee shirts are only $5!

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

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

We have this beautiful old chest of drawers for $99...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and this retro desk and chair set is just $95!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can get four of these chairs for $100..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and any one of thses pieces for just $50.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What a cute little lamp and shade for $15!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And where else could you find this
"peach" table
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
complete with its own pit?
(for $59)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     We have this pretty little oak rocker for 45

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and this shabbied up white one for only 59!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Even our artwork by local artist, Charlotte Scarce,
is very affordable - you can purchase a piece of her
folkart style begining at $16......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
this big floral is under$100!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How about this cute birdhouse for $16?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Or this smaller one for 12?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This great rooster doorstop is only $15!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A pair of retro kitties for $9  !!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We have this beautiful green set of dishes -
a full service for eight for $69...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and this tablecloth that looks nice
with it for only 15...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Our framed art is reasonably priced, as well -
this gorgeous scene is only $42...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These cute handmade cards are cheaper than storebought ones!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We've just gotten in lots of pretty new
french country style decor....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If you still need more to lure you in for a  visit, then let me remind you that we are located in a cool old mill building that has tons of character and is even unairconditioned (which just adds to the old ambience). My mother, Eris, bakes goodies to give away on a regular basis, as well as sharing her homegrown  produce. We have  free books and magazines and give away a $25 gift certificate every month. This month the winner is..... Laura Camper!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So please stop by (we are at 506 Maple Street if you haven't found us yet) and go back to a simplier, less expensive time. You may just want to stay a while!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hope to see you soon!
Cindy

July Twig Tales

Posted on July 21, 2011 at 10:42 PM Comments comments (0)


                It's another heatwave and we are working up a sweat at Feathers and Twigs! Interestingly enough, July seems to be our busiest month of the year. You must all be staying inside and cleaning and redecorating (except, of course, for getting out and shopping).

I've been so busy selling and pricing new stuff, I almost forgot to do the July newsletter!

I think I will start out this time with the winner of this month's $25  gift certificate...........................it is Jane Lovvorn! Congratulations, Jane and all you folks who read the sign in the entryway - you get 10% off your purchase just by asking for it.  This will be going on until the end of July, so come take advantage of it!

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

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

Instead of selling things in the store, I like to think of what we do as "finding good homes" for all our "previously loved" items.

In fact, sometimes with special items, I almost want to refuse a sale if I don't think it will be truly appreciated by its new  owner!

But, most of the time, we sell our stuff to really good homes where it is  loved and given a second chance to be something really beautiful. I am so happy to get pictures from customers showing what they bought from us in a new home - looking so much happier!

For example, Kendra Knowles shared this before and after of one of the two nightstands she purchased. What a difference some paint and new knobs make!

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

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

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

Jen and Tim Houck had my husband build this island to fit their kitchen. Then, Jen bought these stools from us and recovered them herself.

Don't they look great?

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

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

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

(By the way, she bought  four stools and decided she only needs two, so if you are interested in two cute retro stools.....)


Stephanie Norton enjoys decorating and redecorating her loft apartment. Here is an example of how she used a bench she bought from Feathers and Twigs to add character to  her bathroom.

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

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

    Some of you may remember this archectectural piece we had hanging in the store for quite a while. Betty Newsome bought it and gave it new life as a headboard. I think it looks gorgeous!

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




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

We have lots of new things waiting to find their perfect owner! Some of these will take just the right person to appreciate them.

Like  a pair of director chairs with the letter "W"...

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

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

Or this crazy "horse" clock!

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

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

Someone who really loves yellow and red will want this handy little kitchen cupboard.....

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

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

It will take a pretty big kitchen to accommodate this beautiful, big island.....

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

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

Like roosters? You will love this huge set of dishes!

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

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

Only a person with a garden could appreciate these darling,  handmade vegetable picking

aprons......

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

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

And I guess you'll need a beach house to properly display some of Charlotte's new beach scenery..........(or maybe not!)

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

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

Got fruit?

(Retro ceramic fruit that is!)

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

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

So, come on inand "adopt" your own something special!


       And, speaking of "adopting", the Carrollton Animal Shelter has been having a special this month, as well.    All their dogs are $40 and cats are just $20 - completely ready to go with all their shots and spaying or neutering ! If you have been considering a new pet, this might just be the perfect time - hurry, though - just one week left!

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

Hope to see you  soon!

Cindy

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

We haven't seen cute little Ashlyn this month, but we did get a picture of this cute kitty shopping in the store!

You know it is summer when the zinnias are blooming! Even if it hasn't "officially" started, it sure feels like it. Hope you are enjoying your summer and are doing a little "nest fluffing". Even if you aren't redecorating on  a big scale, you can do little things that give your home a new look and feel. Usually, I feature "big" pieces of furniture that require big changes to use them. It's too hot to do anything that strenuous! Check out all these "little" treasures we have that could be just what you need to make your house a  home (or a nest!)....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Seashell stuff is nice this time of year...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As is a Charlotte shrimp painting!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How about a toilet seat mermaid?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pottery is always pleasing......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And wicker is wonderful.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can decorate with quilts any time of the year
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And plates can perk up a place!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some people like a few chickens scattered around....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Others might fancy some peacocks!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We are especially partial to birds
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and nests...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and more nests...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and more birds!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can mix it all up!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We have two great old cotton baskets right now....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                                                                               

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and lots of other baskets, too.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It would be easy to find a place to
put this little wrought iron set.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And who doesn't have room for
one more chest of drawers?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We  could all use more storage!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We have a little of everything...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
from old working sewing machines,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
to cool, retro fabric
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and super old mammy dolls,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
hanging macrame tables,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
great gifts for dad like this
handmade wood putter and practice putting hole,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fourth of July decorations,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and picnic supplies -
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We even have a bathroom sink!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A special new addition is Cassie Littleton's line of handmade cards - they are so special and the price is the same or less than store bought ones!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She also makes these confetti crayons  -
recycled crayons that your kids will love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 This month we have our first male winner
of the $25 gift certificate - Kurt Kimmons!
Congratulations to him!

               So, April showers brought May flowers and tornadoes and hot weather and cool weather ..........
and some hot deals on some cool recycled homegoods here at Feathers and Twigs! Hopefully, you are a regular customer and you already know about our wide variety of wonderful furniture and home decor. If not, come see us soon! Here is a sneak preview of some of our latest goodies....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tori just brought in some new
"summer scented" soy candles.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here's a beautiful old wicker sofa
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and a lovely Hollywood Regency style one
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
which might look good with
 a pair of beautiful black sidetables like this one.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What a great pair of burgandy

velour chairs (with matching ottomans)!

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

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You could "mix things up" a little
with this retro modern chair
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and/or a traditional one like this.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We've just gotten in a variety of very nice modern,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
vintage,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and traditional artwork.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Charlotte is "mixing up" her artwork with some fruit
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and flowers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
along with her famous "beachy" work.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Charlsie has brought in some
 pretty new work to go with
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
her special nests - framed with reclaimed wood
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and painted on pillows!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mandy has branched out, too,
from her popular bird prints to   
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
colorful oil paintings
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
with lots of bright colors.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Scott has diversified, as well, from building
perfect farm tables to kitchen islands.
He even takes special orders!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And Christopher has gone painting crazy!
He does beautiful work on chests,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
dressers,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
nightstands,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 tables and more.
He'll even do custom work just for you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So come on in to get your "retail therapy"
and some of Eris' yummy cookies,
brownies, or banana nut bread.
You might just find anything -
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
from a vintage Schwinn bicycle
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
to a giant boot painting
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
to a wild and wonderful
flower arrangement like this one!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And if you register,
          you might even get lucky like Allie
      Manzo did this month and win
  the $25 gift certificate! 
                                               Congratulations, Allie!                               
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You could even be extra, extra lucky
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and see Ashlyn
on one of her rare visits
( we miss her!)
or

 Granny in a clown suit!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
See you soon?
Cindy
