Love Is In The Air

We have even more new merchandise arriving daily! We are worn out from unloading boxes of our exciting new finds. Love is in the air and we're ready for Valentines day and have some wonderful goodies and fabulous treats for you or that special someone.

Kelli has created some of the most beautiful displays! We are lucky to have someone who understands and shares the vision that Shawn and I have for Gatewood Hall Gracious Home. Thank you Kelli!

Finally are we ever ready for spring...Birds, ferns, flowers and live topiaries. We also love the hottest new "must have" terrariums (check out a short but great article on Terrariums in this months Country Home Magazine) We have some great terrarium containers, and even some "everlasting" designs that require absloutely no maintenance! (my kind of plant!!)

We are having so much fun, please come in and see us and we promise you will leave inspired!

New Spring 2009 Arrivals

First of all we'd like to thank everyone for a very wonderful and successful holiday season. We can't thank you enough for shopping at our store for your holiday gifts and decorating needs.
Now for some exciting news! We have just returned from the Spring Market, we found so many great new things, and we already have a bunch of new merchandise in the store.

We found the most wonderful French bath & body line called Waterl'eau, Waters of the World! Waterl'eau brings the aromas and benefits of some of the world's most beautiful and naturally rich waterside regions into your home. Every product is based on the nourishing qualities of natural, vegetable ingredients and each holds a promise of faraway places. The two fragrances we bought are amazing. The first is "The Sea" known as the origin of all life on Earth, it brings the best of the sea to your bathroom. Your skin is cleansed, pampered and nourished; and your spirit is renewed. "The Green Deep" Contains extracts of Green Tea, which helps to refresh, calm and sooth the skin - combined with the rich aroma of fresh citrus. These products make you feel like you are taking a mini vacation at the beach!

We have loved Georgia's own Paddywax candles for a long time and we are very excited about their newest line called Re-leaf. These new candles honor the beauty of trees and Paddywax will plant a tree for the purchase of every Re-Leaf candle through the American Forests Foundation. Isn't that great? Not only will you get to enjoy the great, soothing smell of these candles but you can feel good knowing that you will be helping to cool our planet by planting a Tree. The wonderful fragrances include Juniper, Oak and Tuscan Cypress.

Dish lovers look out!! Juliska has a new pattern called Pewter and it is absolutely stunning. While it looks like it is a hand forged metal-pewter it is actually ceramic. It is wonderfully dishwasher and oven safe. We love it because not only can it be mixed with your other patterns but, it can be used for either a formal or casual setting.

We also bought some beautiful new bedding and PJ designs from Pinecone Hill, some great new Match and Woodland Spode dinnerware pieces, great new books, fun spring napkins from Caspari, and some fabulous new Jan Barboligo pieces. We are also excited about all of the new accessories and gifts that we found not to mention the newest Caldrea Fragrances and Mariposa fern items. WE LOVE SHOPPING FOR YOU!! Please come in and see us soon!
