Ready For Spring!

Welcome to all of our new visitors who are coming from the Faded Elegance blog...we are so happy you have found us!

Things are flying fast and furious here at Retreat Farm, with last-minute preparations for our 'coming attractions'. We thought we'd give you a sneak peek at our Spring 09 theme, coming soon to both of our permanent spaces at Faded Elegance and Poppyseeds: Introducing our 'Spring Garden Retreats'.
While not showing the exact pieces that we'll be bringing in, these photos express the pretty, garden-fresh, shabby, countryside mood of our 'Elegant Garden Party' theme for Faded Elegance. Whites, greens, golds, glass, wire, and paper will invigorate you and have you ready for Spring entertaining - because if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate, we recommend that you bring the garden feeling indoors!
Some absolutely amazing furniture, including one-of-a-kind pieces, and wonderful vintage & aged accessories (including Springtime NeSts!) will be arriving late next week in our space...and I am debating bringing in that beautiful huge birdcage. We'll see! Visit Faded Elegance next weekend to be among the first to see the new look in our space.

Now, for Poppyseeds, we have a 'Vintage Garden' theme planned...

Reminiscent of our booth at Farm Chicks last June, which we called Grandma's Garden, this theme is a bright, happy celebration of Springtime. You can almost hear Benny Goodman's Big Band music as you take in the vintage goodies and colorful furnishings!
Vintage furnishings and lots of vintage linens, dishware and gadgets, garden goodies and kitchen kitsch, all in happy colors to brighten up these last gray days of winter...and welcome Spring!

Plus of course some special creations made by Retreat and available only from us.

We'll be completely rehabbing our space at Poppyseeds early next week to create the perfect setting for this theme, so if you visit midweek, you'll be able to see the whole new look!

We hope you enjoy both of these escapes to relaxing, rejuvenating retreats!
