Coming Soon…RE:Treats

A New Year means a new adventure…

I’m so very excited to announce that starting January 3, 2013, I will have a new shop inside Hello the House!  My little shop will be called RE:Treats, and it will feature new, vintage and repurposed home decor and gifts.  This is something I’ve always wanted to do, so I’m thrilled to have this opportunity.  I’m looking forward to stretching my creative muscles in a new way!

Retreats

 

You will find Hello the House (and me!) inside the old Hudson Star Observer offices on Locust Street.  Stop in to see furniture, gifts, artwork and home decor items from local artisans and vendors – I’m only one of many!  And, prices are simply amazing.  Open Thursday-Sunday from 10 am – 6 pm each week.  I can’t wait to see you!

Love this RECLINER!?

Now, I’m not normally a fan of recliners.  You know – those lumpy, overstuffed, sad looking chairs that so many of us have in our homes at one time or another?  (I find that they are an essential piece of furniture in a man’s space, but that’s another story for another time). Continue reading

Small Bedroom? No Problem.

I was just glancing through the latest West Elm catalog, when I spotted this very cool storage bed frame!  For anyone who has a small bedroom space, an option like this could save the day.

I would especially find it useful for a guest room, or other space where extra linens need a home.  Those extra pillows and quilts can sure eat up closet space in a hurry!

My bedrooms are small, making a dresser a luxury in each of them.  Having a bed such as this for storing off-season clothing would really be handy. 

I can’t imagine one would want to store things inside the bed that need to be accessed daily; a bed frame with drawers would be a handier alternative.  And, I would imagine that any under-the-bed storage has been lost with this option.  Although – I’d rather have my off-season clothing or bedding INSIDE the bed, rather than under it.  I’m sure it stays dust-bunny free that way!

What do you think?  Have you recently found a great storage idea for your home?  Share it – I’m always on the lookout for ways to save and create space!

We Do Feet – New Phone Number

I have posted in the past regarding the help offered by We Do Feet, an organization in Hudson which serves the entire St. Croix Valley area in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  If you have furniture or appliances you wish to donate to this worthy organization, they have a new phone number:  715-781-0622.

You will find more information on the group and what items they accept for donation.  They are able to pick up larger items, or you can arrange a time to drop them by the warehouse yourself.  Aside from furniture and appliances, cash donations and donations of gently used or new mattress pads and sheet sets/bedding are also greatly needed.  These smaller items can be dropped by Trinity Lutheran Church (either campus) in Hudson during their regular office or service hours.

Thanks to all of you who have donated furniture in the past; I know several of my clients have given items they no longer needed after our redecorating projects!  Please pass this information on to friends and family you know who may have items they wish to donate.   All the donations are so appreciated – especially by those in our area who receive the assistance.
