Cutest Little Light Ever!

I ooh'd and ahh'd over this little light at the last country trade show,
and now it's here at Brown & Hopkins!

Just about 4.5" in height and the little light flickers
when powered by just one AA battery!
We did a recent test here at the shop,
and we have discovered that if you use a good quality battery,
and never ever turn off the little light, it will stay "lit" almost 4 weeks!!!
I just think it looks so nice displayed in our little black iron book light taper holder set upon an antique book.....

Cookie Tarts!

These wax cookie tarts are so realistic that in the past week we have received the following question from a customer (name has been changed to protect them from embarrassment):
Tim: "Do you have any of those Hazelnut cookies already bagged up in a two pack?"
Me: "Those are wax..."
Tim: "OMG....don't tell anyone I asked that!!!!!"
Me: "You aren't the first one to think they are real!"

In January, when we were doing our spring cleaning,
we found a wax cookie with a perfect bite taken out of it,
and I guess they don't taste as good as they smell,
'cuz we found the spit out half in a tin bucket....... : {

Anyway.....they are now available for purchase online!
We're baking as fast as we can!

More Snow On The Way???

This past weekend, a friend and I went on a buying trip to PA! Yup, despite all the snow warnings, we still said "Road Trip!!" Here's a few pics of what we woke up to on Saturday in Norristown, PA. Thank goodness Bruce had packed my snow shovel, and my friend Dawnne brought her tall boots! This is Dawnne shoveling us out of our parking spot!

We had fun and ordered lots of cool, country stuff which will be arriving all month long.

I brought home alot of framed prints, so come on over after Wednesdays storm and take a gander! We are having a storm tomorrow, so the shop may be closed. If you want to venture out, please call us first to make sure we are open, so you don't waste a trip.

Today, a cute man (I say cute, not because of his looks, but because of his actions) visited us, and he was on a mission. He opened the door, and headed straight for the boutique, and was looking for an item his wife had spied over the weekend. I thought that was so cute and thoughtful.

I am not going to tell you what he purchased just yet, because she may read our blog, and I don't want to spoil the surprise. But I will tell you that we are selling them quickly!
When guys come into B &H and buy something special, I always think to myself, 'It must be so nice to have a husband like that who pays attention when you are shopping together.'

I guess I am doing pretty good as well, at least mine packed a shovel for me! LOL

A Peek into My Decorating Style

Many of you know that we built a home this year, and recently moved in!
It is so exciting!
Here is a little corner that I recently decorated
and I am so pleased with it!
I love nature and crocks and 'live' things that look alive but aren't! LOL
I do NOT have a green thumb!
Every now and again, I will take some pics
and show you what I am doing in my own home!

If anyone has photos of things they bought at Brown & Hopkins,
feel free to send the photos to me at
and I will post them!

We all need a little inspiration!
