I Went to a Garden Party

The day started off with showers, but by the time we made it to
Brian and Meloney's wonderful home in Chadwick, Missouri,
the clouds were clearing and the sun was peeking out;
a perfect day for a Garden Party.






Recently Brian constructed the most wonderful Garden House
on their country property.
And this weekend they are having an Open House.

Their invitations read,

"We built it, Will you come?"








A brick path led to the garden house that meandered
through a quaint courtyard surrounded by a white picket fence.




















Outside seating, statuary, whimsies, and plantings
all made for a magical experience.


















Brian and Meloney are friends to so many people across the US, selling their wonderful vintage wares at the Texas Shows for many years now. Up until two years ago they had a brick and mortar store in Ozark, Missouri called

The Seed Box.



Brian is a great craftsman, and Meloney has the style and design experience that causes them to be everyone's favorites. They hold several Open Houses each year, and this was to introduce the new Garden House. They are widely known for their amazing vintage Garden and Architectural elements, that are showcased in their new Garden House.



Myself and Hayley from Nesting Notions.



You never know who you'll see...
 Pam, myself, Kenda, and Hayley,
all with booth spaces in the area.


For some amazing inspiration check out
 The Seed Box website,

And my post on their Christmas Open House last November.

"You have risen from the seeds you have sown."

This was just a teaser.
More next time on what's inside,
And a tour of Brian and Meloney's wonderful home.

What a really wonderful day!

    This is such a beautiful garden and little cottage...I love it!! I know it is a tease because you HAVE to show us inside. I love the picket fence {sigh} and the chairs attached to the walls. How sweet. Love seeing pictures of you too, sweetie.

    Looking forward to your next post about your amazing friends!! :-)

  11. Debra, I just love that little cottage, I bet it is just as cute inside as outside. I am inspired by the way they have displayed all their "treasures", like the chairs hanging on the wall with the bird's nest. It looked like a fun place to visit and have a party.

  25. Hey, your background looks great! Good job!

    I'm kicking myself that Brian and Meloney were in Warrenton, and ninny me didn't even know! Ya woulda thought one of my Warrenton peeps would've told me, right?

    Great pics!

  26. I consider myself fortunate to know them, but terribly unlucky to not live close enough to attend one of their open houses. They are the talented couple for sure. I also had the pleasure of meeting Hayley and her darling little boy last year. She is a cuttie pie and he is such the little man.

    P.S. You're quite the cutie yourself!

  27. Debra, thanks for posting this and letting me know. I going to do a post on them and send peeps your way. I'm still mad at myself for stopping by to see them and not taking pics, but Mel was still redoing after several things sold and then I didn't get back to them to take pics. I'll be anxiously waiting for the next post!
