I visited Hendersonville/Flat Rock, NC this 4th of July weekend. Most of you know
I have been vacationing in the Mountains for over 15 years via Florida.
Last year Linda Spry, owner of Mountain Home and I went into a joint venture and opened a shoppe on Main Street in downtown Hendersonville, NC.
Fast forward a year and Linda and her husband Charles have moved there
business to 317 N. Main Street in Downtown Hendersonville. ( Mountain Home)We visited the upcoming Showhouse in Flat Rock over the holiday weekend. I'm giving you a
peek at the 2010 Flat Rock Designer Showhouse, opening August 14 - 29th.

Carlton Varney Larger Than Life....

Linda and I were so fortunate to be able to attend a talk given by Carlton Varney. The larger than life fabric/interior designer who spent his early years working
with the infamous Dorothy Draper.
We both purchased his new book "In the Pink" rumor has it there making a film
about Dorothy. It was a perfect day for Linda and I who bumped into Carlton in
the Halls at Dania before the show even began.

I've been looking at some new items for the shoppe in Hendersonville.

I think it's time for a visit to the Mountains, lovely weather, cool nights, a great hotel to stop at is MOUNTAIN INN AND & SUITES Right off Hwy 26 in Flatrock, Henderville NC.
The owners are American and so friendly, each time I've visited for over 12 years, they have just refurbished the original hotel and built a new one next door. It's a must stay, at a great price!!

I get so many new ideas from my blogging friends for the Old Town Market Shoppe on Main Street in Hendersonville.

Also Loving this one!!!

This is a photo of something, I've been thinking of making for the shoppe at
Mountain Home in Hendersonville.

Hope to see your there soon!!!!
