We are snowed in today and expect to get up to 30" of snow by the time it ends tomorrow or Saturday!
Now isn't this an interesting dressform? It is wire and is adjustable there is a cloth measuring tape that woven through it. Any suggestions as to how to use this?
Here is a cute little cupboard that I bought for the shoppe. But right know it is housing some of my wool and felting supplies, and as you can see Alex has found a cozy spot on top!
This is my favorite new/old find. I'm not sure how old it is but it has the great peely paint look. As I was going through some of the catalogs to place orders for the shoppe I saw similar reproductions for more money than I paid for this! I love it!
The problem now is that I have all these "props" in my house and have decorated with them I won't want to give them up for the shoppe!
In the fall, John and Kim Whritner plan to open The Sheep's Nest on their sheep farm located at the far east end of the village.
"We are building a cottage on our property to replicate an old English cottage. We will offer yarn products made from the wool of the sheep we raise. We will also showcase home decor with a European flair," she said. "My husband is a carpenter, and we will also have a kitchen showroom. I plan to have studio space where people can come to create, whether it is knitting or scrapbooking. All the things I love I am trying to bring together."
The Sheep's Nest will also sell items produced from local farmers and craftspeople. Whritner has joined many other business owners and residents on the village economic development committee. She said the book village is a great start, and "now we need other businesses to open up that will compliment the book shops."
