Happy Halloween, Happy Fall!

Nothing feels more like Fall than the color orange, pumpkins, and the sounds of little voices saying, or should I say "shouting", "trick or treat"! In a couple of hours I will we walking the same streets as I did as kid "trick or treating"! This time though, I will be walking with my four little grandkids! I have to say, I SO look forward to this each and every year. So with that said, here are a few things that caught my eye at Country Roads the other day. . . 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are all enjoying Fall as much as I am. . .  take care!


Country Roads Garden Party

So, this Saturday, the 26th, we are having another little "Garden Party" here at Country Roads. It's between the hours of 1pm to around 3pm or so. It's nothing fancy, just a casual get together where you can ask questions, enjoy some refreshments, and relax!  We like to keep it causal and and are hopes are you will enjoy yourself.  And by the way, the gardens are looking especially good right now! Here's a few pictures I thought you might enjoy. . .

These pictures above are some of the things you will find in Debbie Watts garden space! It always looks great, and she has been working extra hard out there to straighten things up for everyone! I should all be really nice for Saturday! Anyway, I hope you might have the time to come down and see us!  Take care and happy Fall Gardening!


I Love This Time of Year~

Even though we've had a bit of a warm week here at Country Roads, the nights cool us right back down. I always love this time of year. I think I become more of a homebody and enjoy just hanging around my house more than leaving it, if that makes sense. Country Roads is looking especially good these days if you haven't had a chance to make it in. There is a huge variety of stuff to choose from and our gardens out back have all the colors of Fall!  Below are just a few pictures of what caught my eye this week. . .

I love these beat up old dress forms. If they came home with me, I believe they would just have to come together. How could you leave one of them behind? As we get closer to the week-end, I hope you add us to your list of places to go. As many of you know, there is something "always" going on at Country Roads!!  Take care. . .


Some October Sweetness

The time flies by, doesn't it? I'm always amazed by the passage of time. I watch the seasons change at Country Roads, and it is always SO sweet with the different vignettes, displays and merchandise. I just wanted to let you know that if you are looking for something to do on Columbus day Monday, Country Roads will be open from 10am to 5pm. Also, if you love to garden and enjoy our gardens out in the back of the store, we will be hosting another Garden Party on Saturday, the 26th of October from around 1pm till 3ish! On hand to answer any and all questions will be Brande Jackson, Debbie Watts, and Cathy Jarrell. And of course there will be a few refreshments for you all! Below are just a few pictures of things that I happen to really like, and thought I would share. . .

If you are familiar with the insanely popular Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I just wanted to let you know that we have two openings left for our class on Sunday. You can reserve your spot by calling us at 714.532.3041 and paying for the class over the phone! And with that said, I just want to say "thank you" to all of you that shop with us, read our blog and follow us on Facebook! We do daily posts on our FB page, "Country Roads Antiques & Gardens" that always have a picture some of our stuff here at Country Roads! And again thanks. . . please know I appreciate you all!


A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That!

Sometimes you don't need a lot of words.  The pictures tell the story all on their own!

I just wanted to give you a small, small sampling of some of the wonderful things we have here at Country Roads right now! And believe me, this "really" barely touches what we've got. My hopes are that you will find some time to come down and enjoy Country Roads for yourself and see what I'm talking about. And if you aren't a fan on our Facebook page yet, please join us. Every day there is a picture of one of the many treasures we have here at my favorite little place. You can find us on Facebook at:
