Over the weekend, Mom and I popped into a great new store/gallery in West Jefferson, NC. The Artists' Theater is right down my alley with a perfect combination of old and new. I walked inside and fell in love.
While many antique stores have that antique feel, this gallery has struck a balance by using antiques, local art, and modern accessories. Just to make it a little neater, The Artists' Theater is tucked into a building that was built around 1900 and has been everything from a Ford dealership in the 1920's to a movie theater. The old wood floors reflect years of wear and have been covered in a satin finish, maintaining that old/new feel. "Theater" style velvet curtains hang in between vignettes as a nod to the old theater it once was.
This is the last full week before school starts, so I will not be taking on any major projects, but instead will be spending as much time with our boys as they will allow. Most of the school supplies have been purchased, but we still need a few things, so we will hit the stores today.
To make it easy on myself and to share a little bit of why I love Ashe County, I will be sharing some of my favorite things from the area with you this week. If this isn't your thing, please come back next week, when I'm sure to be rambling on about fabric or paint.
Have a great week!
