    Lavello Sink Reveal for The Cottage

    As promised when we shared some of the wonderful renovations for The Cottage,  the sink reveal is here! Check out our previous blog post about The Cottage, where we turned this space into a new home for Moon River Spa. The space is working wonderfully for our friend Jenifer Blevins and her business is flourishing. She says her clients love the renovations. We wanted to share the update on the Lavello Sink and how wonderful it looks in the space.  We had a great experience with this company and this project was a perfect addition to the farmhouse style in The Cottage. Because the store counter piece was narrow,  we…

    The New Harmony Antique Show

      On June 8th and 9th, we welcome you to the 18th annual New Harmony Antique Show located in picturesque downtown New Harmony, Indiana.  This is a one-of-a-kind, indoor and outdoor, exclusive collection of authentic antiques, vintage décor, furniture, and collectibles located directly on Main Street and in the Ribeyre Gymnasium.

After I visited New Harmony with Jeff…

The most important piece of advice I can share is to consult an expert! Professionals know their business and for the interior house remodel I reached out to friends and valued customers. After closing the sale of our barn, now The Barn by Firehouse Antiques, we contacted our friend Emily. She shared many ideas how we could renovate the space to reflect our style as well as maintain the conveniences we need…

    The Cottage

      We blogged about The Barn by Firehouse Antiques and Our Fixer Upper and here is the final building of our recent purchase, The Cottage.

At first we thought this could be an Airbnb….ah dreams! But we are excited to announce it will now be the new home of  Moon River Spa owned and operated by Jenifer Blevins who is a friend and longtime resident of New Harmony, IN. She’s a certified…

    Finding Original Farmhouse Antiques

Just stepping out our back door at Firehouse Antiques will lead you straight into some family farms that date back to New Harmony’s beginnings. As you might imagine from all the Indiana corn jokes, we are…
