HammerTOWN, that is. I just couldn't stop singing that Hammer Time song in my head as I wandered through this great store on Sunday. I would like to thank my anonymous local blog lurker for the heads up about Hammertown Barn. What a great place! It's only an hour south of me in Pine Plains, NY. And five more minutes down the road was the town of Millerton, NY, which was chock full of great shops! We (me and my friends Kelly and Jennifer) had a really wonderful day, and it felt like we really uncovered a great secret! Usually we KNOW about these places, but this one took us by surprise. Enjoy the pictures, and if you get the chance, GO THERE!
Can you tell I loved all the upholstered furniture?! It's Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams and Lee Industries stuff. All great in natural linens. Yum!
I had to buy a couple of those candles. Now I just need to decide if I'm keeping them or giving them away as gifts. Hmmm....
This was a faux wood rug! Made of some foamy substance! It looks amazingly real, doesn't it? Too cool for school:
Can you believe those awesome botanicals?! I want them!! (Only $185 each!)
There were three or four of these benches upholstered in old rugs. LOVED it:
I keep promising more pics every time I post, and then I get sidetracked. (Darn that work anyway!) But I really do have some kitchen and bathroom project pics to post. I'll get to it. Some day! :)
On a personal note, I went to Kathleen's open house at school last night. They had us go through a mini-version of their day, so we spent 10 minutes in each class (Two hours of FUN!). She has an old high school friend of mine for Algebra this year. It cracks me up. It also makes me feel OLD! I used to sit in that classroom with that guy! *Sigh* I guess time just keeps on tickin' by, whether I'm ready for it or not. So far she seems to be enjoying high school. I thought there would be a more stressful transition, like there was in 6th grade, but it's been perfectly fine. I think she really matured a lot this summer. She's a good kid. And I'm a very lucky mom.
