Shorter days are passing by & with each day no matter the weather we notice the sun is staying in the sky longer.

Week by week the days get longer, although we may not be aware of the change we notice leaves budding out on bushes and trees.

The grass starts turning green and fragile flowers start pushing through the warm earth. Soon it will be Spring and as we dust off the cold and dreary days, we start planning on what seems like a brand new year.

As promised the Plum Tree has been gathering some unique garden pieces. So if you are in the mood to start collecting what you need or just want to come in and dream we are ready for you.

Although it has been really frigid outside the last few days, we are all looking forward to warmer weather. As promised we have started on our new "Year Round Garden Room" and with some luck we will be getting pieces in on a regular basis to fill it up and fill your thoughts of how you want to achieve your garden this year.
Whether it's a piece for inside or out, I hope you can find something that will suit your needs.

We have a cute selection of bee inspired garden pieces including books on bee keeping

Cloches of all sizes and shapes

Faux bird nests for your spring theme garden room

Live plants in unique containers
Lots of bird and egg themed items

I love this look, these are fingerless gloves or hand warmers and can be worn with short sleeves, under or over a long sleeve shirt or as cuffs to peek out beneath a sleeve. Pretty ruffled edge really dress them up. Add your own buttons, ribbon or rhinestones to make them your own style. Some are made with a thumb hole and some without.
Handmade locally

Changes are Coming

I know it is probably the coldest it has been in a while, however we are already in Spring mode at the Plum Tree. Since there are so many of you that love gardening and the vintage garden look, we have decided to create a year round garden oasis right inside the store. I have already asked my dealers to start looking for neat vintage garden pieces from planters to swings and everything in between and believe me when they get assignments they don't dally.
So watch as our garden starts to grow & the weather gets toasty warm.

We have a new artist at the Plum Tree, I am excited to introduce you to Crystal of My Felt Food.

Crystal came to me and asked if I might be interested in offering her line of wool felt food in the store. Of course I am always looking for new artists to promote so I said sure. I was so excited when I saw her actual pieces and have to say the are already selling quite well.

She designed these pieces for the Plum Tree which we call the Plum Tree tea.

Each piece is handmade and are really a work of art, she even made a plum tea teabag.

I have to brag a little this week about one of my dealers. Deborah aka The Tattered Cat is not only a finder of great treasures, she is also a great friend. This past week Deborah came down and along with Joy we went to Americasmart for the January show. After two days of walking showroom after showroom and floor after floor, Deborah still stayed on and worked with me in the store all day Sunday before heading home three hours away at 9:00 PM.

A lot of our customers remember Deborah from Lakewood Antiques and still come to the shop just to see what she has brought in. I am lucky to have her as a dealer and even luckier to have her as a great friend.

Below is a necklace that Deborah created out of old pieces of found objects. She is working on more so stay tuned. The pictures do not do this piece justice.

Thank you Deborah!
