Fall Shop Tour (Part 2)


If you only had one perfect fall day to spend in the Puget Sound area, historic downtown Snohomish would be at the top of my list of recommendations. Surrounded by cornfields, gorgeous red barns, and orange-leaved trees along a river full of spawning salmon, our charming shopping district has that quintessential "small town" feel that just makes you want to hold hands and sip apple cider with your sweetie all day long.

Fall Shop Tour (Part 1)


Nearly four months after we first opened our shop for business, I can now say that decorating the spaces delights me more than I'd ever imagined. I love the chance to be creative. I love getting to hunt for treasures to fit perfectly in every design. I just love, love, love this part of running our shop!

And so, I figured I might as well give you a tour of the French Creek Farmhouse shops in all of their fall glory!

Refinishing Rescued Furniture


Refinishing and restoring furniture has been my hobby for many years. Truth be told, a couple of decades, even! I love bringing life back to a piece that has been neglected and forgotten. And, every once in a while, I end up tackling a piece of furniture that was forced to endure a very poor attempt at refinishing by its previous owner. I lovingly refer to these projects as "rescues", and this is one such tale of redemption.

Thai Pumpkin Curry


It is officially fall, and that means it's also officially the season of everything pumpkin! It's no different in our house, but I always do like to add a little twist to things. Most of the pumpkin recipes that abound this time of year are baked goods and sweet flavored hot beverages, but not here.

I am a sucker for a savory, warm dish this time of year. My kind of fall recipes are the ones that fill your house with cozy smells, make you want to cuddle up with a blanket to watch some football, and are packed with the best and freshest harvest veggies.
