Our best sellers so far...Karen Pettit our sweet talented consignor from the beginning creates these handmade cards she designs from vintage quilts. She also frames them adorably with unique sayings that can make you laugh or cry. They are literally our best sellers, it is not unusual for shoppers to by in multiples as they know they are one of a kind. I can't wait for each time she walks in the store with a new box to set out, they help make our shop a little more special. If you are an out of state buyer feel free to contact us for special orders, go to our website: www.justabedofroses they sell for: 17.50-19.95 and cards are 2.75


Oh my, I wanted to share with you this magnificent winter scene which literally took my breath away...this is Main street in Farmington this week. The antique trees hang over this street and you just cant help getting this cozy feeling. Tears came to my eyes as I turned off the freeway to my behold miles of snow covered old trees ALL the same and I wondered what kind of trees they were, who planted them all in this row and they must be over 100 years old...I have some investigating to do. I know, I will find a book on the history of Farmington.

FARMINGTON settled in 1847

This is the welcome to FARMINGTON sign on a stunning winter morning. This town was established in 1847 the year the Mormon Pioneers came into the Salt Lake Valley. I will share more on this historical town as I learn more from the people here. I have met some who live in some of the first homes ever built here.

Life is REALLY just a bed of roses?

Somedays owning a business isn't ALL that rosey...this is what I opened the door to this week. Seems the roof leaked right into my ceiling, imagine that since there is an apartment right above me? It's snowing again today and two more times this week...hope the problem gets resolved or I may decide to move or not pay my rent etc. Luckily it came out in a walkway and not on my computer area or expensive antiques! Yep, maybe life really is just a bed of roses...just not EVERY DAY!
