Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. Today I am serving tea on my vintage tea set to celebrate opening of my friend Cathy Jarrell's new shop, The Vintage Lady, at Country Roads Antiques in Old Town Orange. You may remember visiting her charming Home and Garden shop with me in Old Town Tustin. Sadly her shop that was located in a 100 year old house that burned to the ground two weeks before Christmas. Everything inside her shop was lost - happily some of the items in the garden were saved.
Cathy never complained about her loss - her faith sustained her and kept her strong and she viewed her loss as a blessing and opportunity to downsize giving her more time to create a smaller home and garden shop and have more time to pursue her love for writing, gardening and creating using gifts that God blessed her with.
Country Roads, Old Town Orange, California
The day of the fire the owner of Country Roads in Orange, CA. contacted Cathy inviting her to relocate The Vintage Lady to Country Roads. Country Roads has 12,000 square feet of the most fabulous and beautiful antiques and collectibles (and is so special it was visited by Nate of the Nate Berkus Show), and a fabulous garden in back of the building featuring all kinds of vintage plants, trees, flowers and vintage garden furniture and flea market finds. A little space was created in the 5,000 square foot garden for Cathy to relocate her container gardens and topiary plants that were salvaged from the fire.
Let's take a little tour of the new and fabulous Vintage Lady's container garden and new shop inside Country Roads Antiques in Orange, California.
