Holiday Open House at Taken For Granite in Stony Creek, CT


 It's that time of year again!

This is how Taken For Granite sparkled and twinkled
 on Friday evening at their Holiday Open House.

It was my birthday weekend and I was delighted
 to be able to visit my dear friend Paula in Connecticut. 

You know what that means!
Three fun filled days of antiquing,
 shopping in the most beautiful boutiques
and catching up with girl friends.

This first post will showcase all the splendor of
in Stony Creek, Connecticut.

Enjoy the photos...
...there are a LOT of them! 






Michele, the owner and creative genius
 behind these imaginative displays
 made this darling polka dot ruffled table cloth.



She also created this birch and woodland animals
 scene in this giant display case.










































Here is Michele and her team of lovely and talented ladies.
Their hospitality, creativity and attention to detail
 make shopping here a pleasure.

The open house was a spectacular and fun way
 to begin the holiday season! 

I wanted to get this post up as quick as possible!
Now, it's back to Thanksgiving preparations
...and snow shoveling!

Next week I hope to share some photos
 from Paula's wonderful farmhouse cottage...
all decorated for Christmas in her unique and fanciful style.
You will love it! 

Happy Thanksgiving! 
:)
