Spring has Sprung!
It has been so nice having the sun around and watching the trees bloom, daffodils pop and
tulips prepare to make their big debut in the Skagit Valley .
This is a picture I took today of a patch of 'Snow Drops' in my yard.
A sure sign of Spring!!
This darling table and four chairs just arrived at Poppyseeds. The antique table is solid walnut and has a cottage white shabby finish. The four chairs are very chic in blue and white fabric!

Meet our Landlord Myron - aka Mayor of Sidley Lake

We would like you to introduce you to our landlord Myron. Yesterday we were lucky to receive a tug boat tow rope from his collection. Myron thinks this would be a perfect gift for someones sweetheart on Valentines Day. We think this 60' rope would make a nice swagged fence or beach decor (not sure if it is appropriate for Valentines Day however.......)

You can expect to see more of Myron's treasures showing up throughout the year. There is rumor of a darling red pump organ and a vintage soda fountain... Stay tuned!!

Someone's Trash is Someone's Treasure.....
Here is a look at the barn where our treasure was waiting to be torn down.... Yeah.. This old barn is coming down next week. Over the weekend we went on a rescue mission!!

This is what we found! It is a booth from ol' Clide's Tavern in Stanwood's West Side. The building was torn down in the 60's and is now the location of Stanwood's' Bank of America. My Father-in-Law salvaged this booth.

This is the booth before we cleaned it up!!

It was covered in dust, and dirt from the past 50 years!

And here it is now!! It is such a fun piece to use for display at the shop! It has a light and a bell!
It is being rewired this week.

We brought in this old door and added magnetic, chalk board panels for a fun addition!

We hope you enjoyed the tour!

Stop in and check it all out.
See you soon!!

Lots of New Goodies!
We had such a busy weekend. This is one of the new pieces that arrived! It is a darling antique Hoosier cabinet. Complete with two large drawers for flour and sugar, two cutting board, two drawers and the glass hutch top. This is such a darling piece and would be perfect for any shabby and chic, cottage decor.

Here is a little clue....This amazing piece that just arrived. Any ideas on what this might be?

It is about 5 1/2 feet tall and 12 feet long in total!

We are not very good at keeping secrets so here is another sneak peak!
We are working on getting this amazing piece of Stanwood's' history cleaned up and rewired!
It was rescued this weekend from my Father-in-laws barn!

More pictures to come soon! Any guesses on what this might be?
