We're having a sale!!

We're having a sale at The Plum Tree! All of our gardening items are discounted to make room for FALL!! Can you believe it is creeping up on us? Only a week left before school starts and Cindy and I are excited about changing the store around. Please stop by to see what's on sale ~ we're pricing to sell, so hurry while supplies last! Wow, that sounded like a commercial . . .

We do hope that you and your families are doing wonderful and that summer has treated you well. We're thankful for all of the rain we've had lately here in McDonough and it has definitely helped our herbs and flowers thrive. Thank you for viewing our blog and as always, we hope to see you soon!

Does an old clock need a face to be beautiful? Seeing the inner workings is artwork in itself ~

We are kindred spirits . . .

All of us, who love old things, are kindred spirits. That is the common thread that helps us understand each other. When you come into The Plum Tree and speak of your love of old things and how you want to decorate your home with these things, we know what you mean.

The objects that Cindy and I surround ourselves with are gentle reminders of the past and we love them. When you enter our door we know that you love them too. I've found that as time passes, slowly but surely, I am replacing items in my home with the worn, old, antique items with character. That is what we both love, the character. Any new piece of furniture can have a perfect, flawless finish. But these old pieces of furniture, where the edges are rounded with wear, a handmade latch may have been added or paint may be missing in a certain area . . . it makes you wonder, "where has this been in the past? Who may have used it in their home such a long time ago?"

Wonderful character. Every old thing has a story ~ we may not know the story, but we can imagine it and appreciate it.

We hope to see you soon at The Plum Tree . . .

Wonderful old office stamps in a silver bowl. Just gathering these like items together gives them such importance and impact ~

Don't you find that the graphics on most printed antiques are simply lovely? So much detail was used.

Antique linens were labored over by someone from the past, sweet stitches of love, wanting to decorate their home with these small pieces of fabric.
