I am joining my Floral Friday friends Lidy, Mary and Pam to bring you another great day

of floral inspiration. Their beautiful images and links to their posts are below.

I Just Couldn’t Wait to Tell You

Hello Dear Readers!

Recently, the wonderful Loi of Tone On Tone published a post

about his most gorgeous shop in Bethesda, Maryland, Tone On Tone.

A shop that he has owned for 15 years and he had made the difficult

decision to close his shop and concentrate more on his interior design business.

I was there not too long ago and as always fell in love with all of his

beautiful antiques . . . from the furniture, to the clocks, to the mirrors,

and the gorgeous accessories. Now, he has placed his beautiful items on sale.

There was one item in particular that I fell in love with.

I will show you some photos that I took (with my iPhone) when I was there last

and maybe you can guess which piece is coming home with me.

A Birthday gift from my hubby to cover the next 10 years … or more!

Let’s start with this amazing French circa 1750 marriage/wedding armoire.

Christmas Tree Inspiration

Yes,  we are not even close to Thanksgiving; however, now is the time

when I have to start the Christmas tree decorating process and planning.

Did you know that I absolutely love decorating Christmas trees?

It was not uncommon for me to have a tree in every room in the past

when I had a lot more time on my hands.

However, I still come close and last year I decorated many, 

so I thought that I would take you down memory lane

for some Christmas tree inspiration.

What I’ve Been Up To and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

It has been very busy around here at the Berry Patch House.

What was left of Hurricane Michael paid us a visit.

Lots of my friends had lost power but we were lucky. . . .

just lots of tree debris . . . much more than Hurricane Florence.

My thoughts and prayers are still with those whose lives have been so devastated

by the horrific fury of Hurricane Michael.

One of the things that I have done was make a one-day trip with my friend Kristen

to the High Point Fall Market in High Point, NC.  We packed a lot of showrooms in one day.

I visited one of my favorite showrooms, Eloquence

and saw my bed (that is in storage now)!

Today is a bit of what I’ve been up to and a winner.

The winner of  Nora Murphy’s Country House Style book is revealed at the end of this post.

Berry Patch Great Room Reveal

Hello Dear Readers!

Let me start off by saying that my thoughts and prayers are with those

who are in the path of Hurricane Michael. Hurricane Florence was so devastating to many

and I know so many friends who were directly impacted by Florence,

so those of you who may be impacted by Hurricane Michael, please stay safe.

Looks like the hurricane may be coming our way; however, by the time it does (if it does)

I am sure it will be just a windy rain storm. Hopefully with not much rain as we surely

do not need any more!

So on a lighter note, I present to you the Berry Patch Great Room Reveal.

It is an area smaller than our previous home, but we are adjusting well.
