It’s Sale Time!

Debbie-Futhey-Three-1-1

Secret Sale Dates!
June 19 10 am – 5 pm
June 20 10 am – 3 pm

Yaaaay!!!!!!!  It’s here.  That’s right, our “Secret Sale” is this Friday and Saturday  (June 19 and 20)!  Friday 10 to 5 and Saturday, 10 to 3.  30% off of everything in the store. (Excluding upholstered furniture)  So, that means that any of the furniture without any fabric on it is 30% off.  Also, so many other great items.  What a great time to buy gifts as well as those items you’ve seen previously and have waited for something special to buy them.  Well this is it.

Ok.  I have another surprise for you.  Over the years so many people have asked me why I am not open all the time.  And I’ve always told them that I am too busy designing and working at what I am passionate about.  So, I’ve decided to try an experiment.  I now have a booth at RElove Market and RElove All Things Shabby in Wichita.  April and I have always enjoyed making previously loved furniture new again, and this is the perfect place for those pieces and all those artifacts we find in all our adventures.  True, my space is not very big yet, but if it works out, who knows what lies ahead.  Nevertheless, I  can’t tell you how much fun I am having with this adventure.
Here’s a picture of the booth and I would love for your to visit the booth there.

There are so many talented people at RElove and Rhonda, the store owner, is having as much fun as I am.  And, you can tell it.  The helpers are so friendly, and very helpful.  So, after you come out to our “Secret Sale” and bring all your friends with you, why don’t you go to RElove and visit there.  It’s located on the Northwest Corner of Central and Woodlawn,  To be exact the address is 515 N. Woodlawn.

So here’s the plan:  After your visit to our store here at 14710 SW Prairie Creek Rd, Rose Hill, Kansas, we’ll give you a coupon to use for our booth only, at RElove Market and RElove All Things Shabby, and you can go to their blowout sale on Saturday after you come to ours.  If you come to ours here at the barn on Friday or Saturday, we’ll give you a coupon for Saturday to be used at RElove Market and RElove All Things Shabby.  But, remember, it can only be used for products from the Memories of Home, LLC booth.  You’ll know our booth and it has our tags on the products, too.
But remember, the 30% off sale is only for Memories of Home, LLC here at my barn.  We can’t wait to see you!!!!

Secrets – the good kind!

Secret Sale!
Friday, June 19th, 10 am – 5 pm
Saturday, June 20th, 10 am – 3pm

Secrets!! Our Secret Sale is this week, Friday 10-5pm and Saturday 10-3pm!! You all know the secret, 30% off entire store (excluding upholstered furniture). We can’t wait to see you all and reward you with this special deal.

Since we are telling secrets, I thought I would tell you about a “secret trick” I did this last week when I was making this adorable slipcover for a wing chair.

IMG_2803

My client wanted to have a spring/summer look for her chairs and so requested a slip cover. She chose to have a one piece cover and not have the cushion covered as a separate piece. I wanted to make sure the cover would stay in place well, so I merged a couple of my ideas and came up with this little trick.

I made a separate little “weighted tuck-in piece” (I’m still working on a more classic name for it) that I sewed to the underneath of the cover. This piece will be tucked in between the cushion and chair, and then tucked under the cushion. I made a “sleeve” along the bottom edge and inserted a dowel rod to give weight. The bulk of the dowel rod will also not allow the fabric to be pulled up and out from under the cushion. (This is a great use of the scrap pieces of dowel rod that I know you have laying around the house ;)

You may not be following my explanation, so here are a couple of pictures to explain.​

Well it’s here. Yep, it’s summertime, summertime, sum-sum, summertime. For those of you who don’t know any sixties songs, you probably think I am experiencing a brain-glitch. And for those of you who know me, it is a quite common occurrence.

I just wanted to tell you about a new store that I have put some of my florals for sale. It’s an adorable new shop for all you “west siders” to enjoy. Located at 4625 West Central between I-235 and West street, about halfway between on the south side of the street. Karen Goodman, owner of “Home at Last” has some great pieces, some new and some gently-loved.

I love this small dinette.

This is a great one for empty-nesters. And this bed… what a beautiful nights sleep you could get with this one.

I loved this one for a great sun-room or protected patio.

It’s All in the Details! Don’t Miss Out on Our Secret Sale June 19th and 20th!

April-Turner-Black-White

Our Secret Sale is June 19th and 20th! Everything in the store is 30% off, excluding the upholstered furniture.

Years ago, when I was trying to decide on the perfect name for my business, I knew that I wanted it to reflect my desire to be detailed, therefore, not “straight out of the box.” Eventually, “The Added Touch” won out over other possibilities. Many times, this gets shortened to “Added Touch” and seems to fit perfectly, since the initials (A.T.) happen to be the same as April Turner. Neat, huh?

I’ve recently finished a couple of window treatment designs, that I believe reflect a few of those “added touches”. This living room is beautifully decorated and the view out the window is wonderful.

We wanted to soften the large windows, but not distract from these other elements. The simplicity of side panels did just that, but the details at the top were the finishing touches.

DSCN2765

Across that living room, in the dining room, we added side panels also. The fabric on these is a beautiful embroidered design. But, you know, it’s all in the details… So, we added these contrasting buttons, which enhance the colors in the fabric. If you look closely, you’ll also see the “added touch” of cording at the top of the panel.

One more detail I get to share with you. In case, you missed it, we have announced the details of our June secret sale. It’s a great sale of 30% off the entire store (excluding upholstered furniture), and it’s being held on Friday and Saturday, June 19th and 20th. Mark your calendar and gather your girlfriends!
