The Creamery Antiques

As the leaves change colors, so does Junk E. The Creamery has been transformed into a warm and cozy nesting spot. You can almost smell the Turkey cooking in the oven, as you check out some idea's for table scapeing. And speaking of Table Scapeing...Linda and I would like to see if there are any peeps out there that would like to sign up for "A walk in the woods, table scapeing class". We will hunt and gather goodies from Mother Nature, and then show you how to throw together a beautiful spread on the cheap, by using what mother gives us, and what you already have in your cupboards. The class will be at my house in Middlebury, Tuesday, November 10 at 7pm Linda and I will show you how to set a table. If you are interested email me at The class is $20.00 and size is limited.

My sweet little Street
Great new displays at the Creamery.
All you need for entertaining for the Holidays.
please pass the gravy...
Trick or Treat?

French Market-Barn Fest

Just wanted to Thank everyone who attended our first (hopefully annual) French Market Barn Fest. We had such a great time, and an unbelievable response. You have encouraged us to continue on, so this is just the beginning of a lot more fun. We will be busy at "The Creamery Antique Mall" tomorrow setting up a harvest theme display, so if you didn't make it to the fest, stop by this weekend.

Give us a few days to catch our breath and we'll be planning the next big event.

The photo's below are of the Harvest Room, and the team that made it happen. Myself, partner Bernie Sherck, daughter Rosemary, her friend Leo, partner Linda Sherck, and Kori and Troy Cripe, with Murphy, owners of this beautiful property.

Bernie & Linda Sherck & Char Osborn Swoveland form the team called junk EVOLUTION. Char and Linda have backgrounds in Art and Interior Design and Bernie is a talented artist and woodworker. In this throw away society they decided to go Green and use items that may be past their prime or no longer used in their original form, and bring them back to life better then before. They embrace the French style of decorating because it uses quality, time worn pieces found at flea markets and a mix of styles. They also do custom work, and offer design services, faux finish painting, and party planning.

Brad Maurice Carney

Member Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York

Exploring the medium of oils over aluminum through abstraction I am continually amazed at the results achieved.

Dalis Andrews

Dalis has been involved in various types of artwork all her life but became serious about it in the early 90s when she discovered woodcarving. Lessons with carving icons Tom Wolfe, Harold Enlow, Desiree Hajny and Peter Ortel helped lay the groundwork for many of her techniques prior to designing her own pieces. She co-founded the Crystal Valley Carving Club, which continues to meet in Middlebury, Indiana.

In the heels of woodcarving came a more serious interest in painting and sketching. With no prior formal training, Dalis took classes at the Elkhart Art League in pastel painting, and continued to create pieces in the photorealistic style, unique for pastel painting.
