Finally it’s on! After working late into the night setting things up and dealing with all manner of last-minute complications, we ready, set, and it’s a go! Believe it or not, Tombstone isn’t just a city with a famous gunfight, it’s also known for it’s wonderful Holiday Tour of Homes! This year will be the second year that our No. 11 is included in this lovely event. Once again, “The Dressmaker’s Cottage at #11” will be fully decorated for Christmas and will have extra surprises of antique machines, part of our antique clothing museum, some new period furniture pieces and a few sparkly things.
All ready for the holidays- don’t mind the modern trash can… 😉
So, let’s a take a look inside…
And two new furniture pieces just recently re-upholstered.
Once of our fabulous ball gown/wedding dress creations c. 1878 – 1881. Yes, wedding dresses came in colors other than white!
And Miss Molly presiding over everything…
As we process pictures, we’ll have more for your viewing pleasure, so stay tuned! ❤
No snow this year and the temperature was quite mild but we thought we’d include this anyway since it is the Christmas season.
We’re proud to once again be participating in the Tombstone’s Holiday Tour of Homes for the second year running. We’ve made some changes at No. 11 since last year to include some newly re-upholstered furniture and a different floor plan designed to show off No. 11 at it’s best. “The Dressmaker’s Cottage at #11” will be fully decorated for Christmas and will have extra surprises of antique machines, part of our antique clothing museum, and a few sparkly things. If you’re in the area (or plan to be) this Saturday, please enjoy this event, it’s for charity and there are so many wonderful homes and places of interest to see. ❤
Miss Molly Approves!
With Thanksgiving well behind us, it’s time to look forward to returning to Tombstone to prepare the house for the 4th Annual Tombstone Tour of Homes scheduled for December 2, 2017. Sponsored by Tombstone Forward, a group dedicated to marketing and promoting Tombstone as a destination and the home tour is just one example. We’ve re-arranging furniture and have acquired some “new” pieces (or rather, re-upholstered some old ones 🙂 Stay tuned for more! 🙂
It’s October and that means Helldorado Days in Tombstone! This year, Helldorado is scheduled on October 20 through October 22, 2017 and the high point of the event is the parade to he held on Sunday October 22. First started in 1928 to publicize the town, Helldorado is held on the third Sunday of October and commemorates the town’s early years and especially that 30-second gunfight that took place somewhere close by to the OK Corral. We’ll be meeting with clients and otherwise working on some projects and having a little fun. 🙂
See you there!
It’s Monday and I’m recovering from the drive back from Arizona so there’s not a lot for today. 🙂 Here’s a picture of me from the Third Territorial Days Ball:
I was going for a formal white tie look but unfortunately, I’d left my white tie back in LA so I had to improvise with another tie which is more flashy but a bit more earlier in terms of period. Well, next time I won’t be for forgetful… 😉
