The Fifth Annual Tombstone Tour of Homes is almost upon us and things are going into high gear at No. 11. Karin is hard at work putting the final touches on the house after a major renovation and I’ll be flying out tonight after finishing some work here in LA. Stay tuned for some nice pictures of “The Dressmaker’s Cottage at #11”- it’s going to be a great weekend even though it’s going to be at a whirlwind pace. 🙂
Angus trying to decide where everything should go…
We’re happy to announce that one again, we’ll be participating in the Tombstone Tour of Homes. 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 third year that our No. 11 is included in this lovely event and 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. Stay tuned for more! 🙂
Leaving for our little Victorian house in Tombstone in the morning for a few days, so I can make new draperies and for the new parlor and bedroom…because what do most designers do on vacation? Oh yeah…sew. 🙂
It’s October and that means Helldorado Days in Tombstone! This year, Helldorado is scheduled on October 19 through October 21, 2018 and the high point of the event is the parade to he held on Sunday October 21. 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! 🙂
