Christmas at Robins in the Trundle Bed

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
- - - Christina Rossetti

In Tribute to our Beloved Father

James David Murphy
December 19, 1929 to October 31, 2009

Our amazing, wonderful, giving, loving father died on Saturday, October 31. We are filled with grief at his passing, but know he is in a better place. We can't imagine life without him. He was the center of our world. To read about his wonderful life, visit:

We found a handwritten copy of a Henry Van Dyke poem that was tucked away with his special papers. It is so beautiful...
“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”

Fall is Around the Corner

Delicious autumn. My very soul is wedded to it. And if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

George Eliot

As Labor Day is winding down, the unofficial end of summer is here. The days are getting shorter and the trees in New England are just beginning to show some color. Pumpkins are ready at the farmer's markets and pick you own apple season has begun. Here are some photos that we took last autumn in New England.

Treasure Hunting

Here are photographs of some new finds!! The shabby chic green display case is one of our favorite recents finds. We love the way the statue we found earlier this summer fits in it!! The wood underneath the chippy green paint is wonderful, but we love the shabby look! We think the apothecary jars would look fab in the case too! It will be making its way into the shop soon. Who knows what treasures we will display in it.
We have displayed the vintage statue of Venus with beautiful pink sea fans! We're looking forward to brocanting in the morning! We love a treasure hunt!
