Last night I went on the Parlor Tour Preview with my son Casey. So fun. Here is a sneak preview of the homes on the tour. All the houses were decorated for the holidays and gave great decorating inspiration. Stephanies house was so amazing as her look is much like haley's cottage. I think she may have more inventory than I do in my shop. All the homes were beautiful all with different themes.
Grab a girlfriend and tour for yourself tomorrow from 12-4. Tickets are available here at haleys cottage or you can buy them in town tomorrow at the Waltz building or Joy Works.
The family room mantle.
This is Nan's house. The Christopher Radko Trees, filled with beautiful glass ornaments. She had two trees filled with these ornaments collected through the years.
This home was so homey and wait until you see the outside. It's a house I always wanted to see.
We were greated in the living room by their dog.
This is Shelleys house, darling bungalow house with lots of charm.
This is another Shellys House. Lot's of pink in her house. She even has a pink refrigerator!
This is Mark Henry's home, so much to look at!
Denise's House. Just darling cottage home and so inviting.
This is where it ended. Karen and Warner's home and studio.
If you have ever been to historic snohomish, this is an amazing place.
It was the old Catholic Church and they have turned it into a art gallery where they create and their home is attached. So interesting to see this home, you can tell right away that artists live there. There is nothing like it!
This is a picture of their living room. From the studio to their home you have to walk through a door that was a antique wardrobe. So amazing.
I hope you get an opportunity to go on the tour as it definately puts you in the holiday mood.
All last week was a blur getting the store ready for the Mill Creek Open House so this week I had to re-arrange again for the new furniture that was suppose to get here last week. The furniture is even cuter than I remembered when I ordered it months ago. Everything just seems to go together so beautifully. I have kept my pallet this quarter to just creams and whites and I have to say I love it! The flameless candle above was my inspiration for my holiday theme. This cute little bird from Posh Digs was on just about everything from Rendezvous Candles to our gift bags,Here is the new ottoman that was suppose to be the coffee table to the linen sofa, but no room, so I put it at the end of the bed. I had all the bottoms to the furniture with a mini pleated skirt.
Here is our comfy linen chair (slipcovered). The most comfortable and can be ordered with a glider and rocker.
Lots of candlesticks on a cute reclaimed wood and iron table.
The bench under the tree is a vintage bench with new linen seat.
Lots of candles from Rendezvous.
Our tree was just in creams and whites with glass ornaments made by moi.
I got a little creative this year with my friend Cindy. We stayed up many a night glittering, and soldiering, and blinging up these ornaments.
More candles and paperwhites. I think I can relax a bit now that the store is the way I like it and everything is in so I don't have to do any more re-arranging. Don't forget the Parlor Tour in Historic Snohomish is this Sunday. Tickets available here at Haley's Cottage. I get to go to the preview tonight, can't wait!!
As I look around the shop, I realize I have no room for the Christmas Tree. So..... we are having a special sale for Black Friday. All our black furniture plus lots of other goodies will be discounted on Friday only. Doors open at 11:00 to 6:00 pm.
If you have been eye-balling this gorgeous sofa, now is the time.
Grab a girl friend or two and have a fun shopping day aboard the Junk Junkett Bus on
Saturday December 5th . A full shopping day in Bothell, Mill Creek (Haley's Cottage of course) and Snohomish. For all you girls who live out of our area this will be a great day to see all the great shops up North. Not only antiques, you will get to see new as well. All the shops will be decorated for the holidays and lots of goodies just for you bus riders. Timi has planned an amazing and fun day.
Betty Dorotik is one of our artists at Haley's Cottage. Betty works in watercolor, botanical illustration, colored pencil, and calligraphy. She finds inspiration from her garden where birds, butterflies and bees gather. Her wooded property provides the habitat that these little guys insist upon, thick brush, woodland canopy and absolutely no visitors. Her gardens are amazing. It's fun to see how the leaves have changed and her garden changes for the fall. I can't wait to see her summer pictures.
It doesn't get much better than this!
This window box is amazing!
I love kale. It reminds me of when we moved here 19 years ago and I couldn't figure out why everyone had cabbage in their yards (and bark). I am now a big kale fan.
Maybe if I had a garden shed like this my yard would look better, do you think!
Thank you Betty for sharing your amazing pictures of your garden
here on Camano Island.
Betty's house is normally on the garden tour, we will let you all know about it so you can
