Happy Labor Day????

Happy Labor Day??? I don't know about you guy's, but I think Labor Day use to be the working mans holiday. "Holiday" being the key word here. I 'm thinking it's taken on a different meaning. We seem to always use this holiday weekend for some BIG project around the Compound. It always seems like we have to take advantage of the 3 day weekend and get triple done that we would on a regular weekend. Usually it's building something on the "compound" we live on. (That's a story I haven't touched on yet) but I will have to fill you all in on the McCoy compound one of these days!:) This little green house is the latest project on the compound and there is good reason to celebrate ITS FINISHED after nearly two years of weekend building!
Hope you all have a relaxing and safe labor Day and if you are "Laboring" like us remember to sit back and reflect on the fruits of your labor. I know that's the part that we really enjoy when we see what we have accomplished.

White Wednesday

I am really enjoying the white Wednesday challenge (no not remembering how to spell Wednesday) but searching through my pictures to see what I can come up with. I seem to have misplaced my camera, so I am not out snapping anything new at the moment.

I absolutely adore my vintage chandelier with the old original discolored white cardboard candle covers.

At home and at the shop I love to put white flowers in any kind of container, here is some fever few from my garden just stuck in an old vintage tumbler

We love to use lots of ivy's in the store and also at home. Here this is an old french enamel washstand not used for washing any more, but a perfect spot for a California Ivy!

More Fever Few in an old sap bucket with a cute old flashcard stuck in it for some whimsy!

Have a great white wednesday!




This month we have been celebrating our tenth year in business in downtown Sumner. It has been such an intense ride always so busy with gathering one of a kind items and specialty pieces, cleaning, advertising, thinking about whats the next display is going to be etc.etc. I have not really ever taken much time to reflect back on what all my Business partner Kris and I have accomplished over the years until now. We have had some great times, made many wonderful friends , stayed up till the weeee hours of the morning redecorating the store, taken down Halloween one night and having the whole store full of Christmas the next day! It's been a labor of love, alot of blood, sweat and yes some tears, but I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. I am so fortunate to have been able to make a career and earn an income from what I love to do and am so appreciative to all who have helped make Today's Country Store a success. I do not know what the future holds, but I do know that the past has been a beautiful Present!
