The Dovecote

I have to be absolutely honest....until recently I didn't know what a dovecote actually was.  In fact, I'd never even heard the word dovecote until early this year.  My antique friend had mentioned wanting one and I just played along like I knew what she was talking about! Now since it had the word dove in it I kinda figured it had something to do with birds!  When I googled it I found that a dovecote is a structure that is meant to house pigeons or doves, so there you have it...you too now know what it is!
At the "big sale" over in Pine Mountain she was able to finally pick her dovecote up.  She came home and promptly got her husband along with our shared handyman, Bob and they got it hung!  It is solid wood and is very heavy so, kudos to them as it was a bit of work to get it up there.

The BIG Sale

It is hard to believe that just a year ago I didn't even know about the "big sale."  But since last Fall I have been invited to the December sale and the one last week.  I know what you are thinking....what sale is she talking about?  The sale I am referring to is the one that the guys at Sweet Home Antiques put on twice a year.  Bruce and Phil, the owners of Sweet Home Antiques and Sweet Home Plantation travel to England early Spring and Fall to shop for their store.  Prior to putting the merchandise into their store, they have a "big tent sale" at their home which happens to be Sweet Home Plantation. Stay tuned for a future post about the Plantation but for now here is a teaser of what it looks like.
