Countryberries, a winner, and some exciting news!

 

Today  Audrey and I headed north to Deerfield, NH. Countryberries is a quaint shop located just miles from NH antiques alley. It was founded by Kathy Graham in 1991 and this weekend she was celebrating 20 years in business. Her daughter Kelly made a delightful cake complete with the Countryberries logo. It was on the same table where we sold and signed magazines…

…so it is no surprise that two of the accompanying cupcakes quickly met their demise!

If you have your fall issue, then turn to page 97 and you will see a tutorial for Itty Bitty Pumpkins by Kathy. She has made up kits with everything you need to make your own…

Audrey and I chatted with some of her wonderful customers like Lynne D…

Countryberries carries pottery, redware, textiles, candles, baskets, lighting, and so much more!

Do you recognize the Mary Beth Baxter originals?? There is an empty spot on this wall now. I am just sayin….

Something to look forward too…

Each time we take photos of a featured home, there are always many more than the editor can possibly use in the magazine. Whenever we can, we like to share some of those ‘extra’s’ with you. Over the next week or two I’ll be sharing some extra’s from some of the homes in the fall issue so come back on Monday for the first post. ( I have it set to publish whether or not I have power here. )

It was nice seeing you ladies this afternoon. Luckily, I live close enough to have been able to go. And, I will have to go back...it is just too overwhelming to try to decide just what to get. Cathy has lots of goodies. However, I WAS able to find 'a couple of things to take home" ;)

Thanks for a fun time and congratulations to Marlene...Enjoy your goodies!

Everyone stay safe...

Loved going on the picture tour with you. So many things to admire. Mary Beth Baxter paintings are wonderful. When we went to Cape Cod I was able to buy two of her originals. I met Mary Beth, too. She is a talented woman. It was nice to see her paintings on this blog.

Congrats. to the winner - Y1M.
