The first is "Shiny, Silver & Bright", our main tree is decorated in silver, platinum and mercury glass. I love the silver, glitter and bejeweled butterflies & dragonflies. What really makes this tree pop is the way Shawn layers everything. The silver glitter fern fronds, berries and leaves just add that dramatic, sparkling touch!
Just arrived new Swedish "good boy & girl soaps" that are so fun and they smell like gingerbread cookies! They will love to wash their hands when it is with Gingerbread Soap! "When the kids are good and wash their hands, they deserve a treat, and one that's really neat! Like a warm bath to give them dreams of yummy gingerbread cookies and mugs of cocoa and cream". They make GREAT STOCKING STUFFERS!! We also just received some fun PEACE and JOY soaps for the older kids!
You will love the new Juliska Wreath and Boxwood pattern for the holidays. They also have some beautiful new gift-boxed items that are well-priced. The cheese platter and knife is sure to be a favorite gift year round!
Finally, just in time for getting your home ready for the holidays, we have received some furniture from our recent High Point market trip. This leather and one of a kind vintage prayer rug chair above is wonderful!

Cucina features Italian country cuisine with definite highlights of chef Isabella's northern Italian heritage (her father is a well known chef also). The emphasis is on light, flavorful but not overpowering sauces and fresh ingredients. To add a special touch, a wood-fired oven is used to prepare baked dishes. The main entrees and pastas include favorites such as: Crespelle al Forno, Baked Spinach and Ricotta Crepes (heavenly!), Fillet Mignon with Porcini sauce (Shawn's Favorite), Tortellini All Nonna which is Meat-filled tortellini tossed in a rich cream sauce with prosciutto, peas and parmigiano (my favorite!) or even a traditional Pizza Margherita. They usually have daily specials that are out of this world. The dessert choices include several wonderful delights including the Tiramisu Della Mamma (it is absolutely the best Tiramisu that I've ever had). The separate dining areas allow for seating of private parties. For those who enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer with their dinner, Cucina Rustica is one of the first restaurants in Fannin County to receive a pouring license.
If you haven't been to Cucina Rustica you really are missing out! I promise you will love it. Owners John and Isabella along with their excellent, well-trained team will take great care of you, and you will leave in happy bliss! Located only about five minutes from downtown Blue Ridge at 76 Forge Mill Crossing in Morganton. It is best to make a reservation by calling 706-374-7474. Go treat yourself and tell them we sent you!!
