Christmas at Montgomery Antiques: How We Put the Front Display Together

One of my favorite things we do at Montgomery Antiques & Interiors is change out our front store display.  We take items from different dealer spaces and combine them to create a vignette.  This year for Christmas, Jana Michaud, our special events coordinator, and I collaborated in order to make sure the front display matched the color scheme she used to decorate the shop for Christmas. Jana chose the teal and silver scheme.

A Merry Historic Christmas: The Palmer-Barlow-Britt Home

Jere and I had the pleasure of touring the Palmer-Barlow-Britt home in Furman, Alabama, today, and oh, what a pleasure!  The architectural style of the home is coastal cottage, and it is believed to be the first house built in Furman, which is in Wilcox County, Alabama.  The home was originally constructed in the early 1830s, and it is owned by the Britt family.  Mitchell and Jennifer Britt have taken great pains to restore and preserve the home.
