The photo above I took one evening in March while sitting on the dock at the winery. I took this with my phone and used no filters...this is exactly as it appeared to the naked eye. It was like no other sunset I've ever witnessed...Gulf Coast sunsets couldn't hold a candle to this Ohio beauty! It was stunning. Deep Purple's song come to life..."smoke on the water, fire in the sky."
In all of this urban farmhouse has taken a back burner. I suffered my 4th (and hopefully final) broken foot bone earlier this year so I'm scaling back on carrying, lifting, buying heavy things. You all know how much I LOVE the heavy, cool garden stuff! I'll never get over my love of old, cast iron urns. And big honkin' farm tables...they're the bomb. Any way...long story short. I'm no longer doing the Country Living Magazine fair and will miss all of you terribly! I can't thank you enough for all of your support and kind words over the years there. You truly made it the extraordinary experience that it was and I treasure all of those memories.
I am, however, participating in the incredible Rural Society Antiques & Garden Show in Mount Vernon, Ohio. A show VERY similar to Country Living without the crowd and on the most beautiful Ohio farm! Juried dealers set up in the top and lower levels of a 100 year old bank barn, under tents near the greenhouse and myself in the former Milkhouse. The show is always the first Saturday in May and October...so between sampling wine I'm buying and squirreling away for the fall show. Mark your calendar! Hope to see you there! Thank you all again for your support over the years, couldn't do it without you.

Just dropped off merchandise at Grandview Mercantile in Columbus, Ohio's Short North arts district. Its pouring down rain outside so I decided to take a few minutes and just walk around the store and window shop if you will. The dealers here never cease to amaze me. They find the most amazing pieces, iconic pieces. I brought you along on my walk that you could see as well. If you're interested in any of these pieces all the Mercantile at 614.421.7000. Only the first picture is from my booth the rest are from dealers throughout the store so I have no idea what their prices are on items. Enjoy! And hope to see you Friday Saturday and Sunday at the March Vintage and Made Market at Feather Your Nest in Pickerington!

motorcycle owners reluctantly garage their iron pony until the first
signs of spring arrive a few months down the road (pun intended). Some
“roads scholars” have found a way to incorporate their passion into
their urban decor and bring their bike right into their living room. No,
not literally, but artfully yes.
