It will be all about kids this coming First Friday on September 4th in Annapolis Royal.
There will be lots of activities at the market square and on the wharf with Zumba and music and even a Town Scavenger Hunt. See poster below for details!
Here at MNH, we will have our regular musicians back to play for us starting around 7 pm.
Come to Town, enjoy a great evening, sleep over and visit our wonderful Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning.
First Friday activities!
Sad news this morning to report.
Yoda, our store cat who lives up the street and who has graced us with his presence since the first day we opened was accidentally hit and killed by a car yesterday morning outside his home.
We all loved Yoda and the many visitors to our store always took pictures of him and sent him around the world.
He loved to come in and sleep on the comfiest piece of furniture we had in the store and was always the sweetest and friendliest little cat.
We will miss him terribly.
Our last photo of Yoda on August 20th.
We will miss you!

Today, as part of the week-long Arts Unleashed! festival, I will be giving a talk on William Morris, the founder of the British Arts and Crafts movement.
Morris believed in art in everyday life and beauty in useful objects.
I’ll talk about his life and have lots of books and show and tell on hand.
The talk will begin at 3 pm.
William Morris 1834-1896
A great day in Annapolis today with the market and Paint the Town.
We wore our “famous” sister dresses and these two dolls did too!
Sisters with sister dolls!

The sofa looked good in our store, but it has found its perfect home now with Mark and his lovely wife and children.
And the amazing LaBarge coffee table went from here to there as well!
Thanks for allowing us to post the photos!

And then this footstool needlepoint emerged from under a horrible “newer” fabric. What a great surprise.

I locked Jane in the sewing room today and did not let her out until she had finished covering the four seats for the Hale dinette set! (I did bring her cups of tea and cookies).
Lovely solid maple set with fold-out leaf and 4 newly-upholstered chairs.
The fabric is a modern crewel on linen and is very tough.
It is now ready for a new home!
PS: August 13th:
SOLD to the first client this morning!
