Spring Tea

Our first Spring Tea - Sue and Karen were 'at your service' in our Tea Tent. The day was a bit breezy, but the sun warmed us up and we all had a lot of fun. May 30th was also the first day of the Sale, so things were pretty busy at The Gables.

Happy spring from the gals at The Gables.
Hope to see you at the shop this season!

Thereare some new arrivals on the
front lawn of The Gables. These colorful pigs, rabbits, turtles, roosters, and even a goat are made from recycled sheet metal. They'll make you chuckle and they're tough enough to withstand the elements.

New for your Garden

Garden "embellishments" are hot! Take a look at this seasons' offerings.
Frogs always seem to move into the garden and this year we found some new guys. I look for ceramic for the best durability. Also at the top of our list is glass for the garden. We have some great 'flowers' that are just plain pretty but could be used for rain collectors (butterlies love them) or Oriole feeders - use grape jelly.

Rock Cairns are back! We love them nestled into a garden spot. Shown here is one of the beautiful glass stars by Susan Corkum. You can just glimpse a couple of our resident geese in the background!

These are beautiful - artist made pottery bird houses with copper roofs. Also available as feeders and the roofs are either natural (as seen here) or verdigris finish. I met the artist while on a buying trip and bought these on the spot.

Spring Tea

May 30th - save the date! We're having a Spring Tea on the front lawn of The Gables. The Tea is from 1 - 3 PM and we're hoping, hoping for a beautiful day. But we'll move it inside and onto the front porch if we need to.
Wear your prettiest spring hat and we'll give you a Gables gift certificate that you can use on that day. Since our annual Spring Sale starts on the same day, it's a great time to check out what's new.
Meanwhile, I'm making little treats for the tea and planning how to decorate my big straw hat. Flowers for sure, maybe ribbons......
Hope to see you then.
