Just looking at the pictures has filled my soul for the day. I would love to attend the weekend next year, and will sign up for emails. Where did you get the piece labeled Winter Footstool or something like that? I swear my New England parents had the exact same design on a hooked or punched rug they bought years ago. The rug stayed on mom's hope chest -- too nice for the floor!


Great giveaway.Thanks for a chance to win!!
