Seedbox Open House

I had been looking forward to The Seedbox Spring Open House at Meloney and Brian's house out in the country for weeks, and as you can see by the myriad pictures I have posted of the event, there was lots to see and lots to love. They had merchandise for sale mostly out in the yard and on the porch, and a few items inside the house.


My trusty sidekick Barb went with me, and we both loved the idea of rakes as a trellis.







I love the country setting...reminds me of my days growing up in Cassville and makes me long for a little farm of my own.






Lots of lovely goodies for sale and inspiration out on the wrap-around porch of the cabin.




Barb took home the oval mirror for her mantel.







I took home (among many things) the white chippy book holder box.







I also got the gear spring candlesticks and one of the metal cattle numbers on ribbon to wrap around some books of my own...



...and the small tray to create a spring centerpiece in my dining room.



If I remember right, Brian makes these terrariums out of windows and salvage. This one was filled with lots of garden collectibles and wasn't for sale.







Meloney and Brian also opened up their home for everyone to see. It was recently featured in Country Sampler Magazine, but the few pictures didn't nearly tell the whole gorgeous story, so I've included many more here.



The little white nightstand between the two beds above will soon hopefully be the vanity in my powder room.



A dictionary-papered vanity...and ceiling.


The living room...

There's Barb in the mirror under the mantel. We both really liked the white bookcase and cabinets in this room.



I don't remember the upstairs being open during the Christmas tour, but this time we got to go up and see the pretty blue master bedroom.

The kitchen is my favorite place in the house. I love the freestanding cabinets, the wire baskets, silver and ironstone.


Barb and I filled my 4Runner with all sorts of finds and made it back to Ozark just in time to have lunch at the Spring Creek Tearoom. We shopped there and Riverview and found so many treasures I had to go back yesterday with Ryan's truck to pick up what we couldn't fit the first time around. A fabulous and inspiring day with a very good friend. I wonder if Meloney and Brian will have an open house in the fall or if I'll have to wait until Christmas...

Thanks for the complete tour. They are both so genuine and talented beyond belief. I have a wonderful little pie keeper I bought from them a couple of years ago and it is one of my favorite things, ever!
