Speaking at the Library

I love having my own store but I also love my life as a novelist. Tonight I will be speaking at the Clayton (CA) Library from 7-8 about my books, Miss Delacourt Has Her Day which came out in February of this year and . . .

Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind which came out at the end of 2008, as well as my store and what's what in the publishing world. Signed copies of my books will be available at a discount. Hope to see you there!

Show Your Stars And Stripes This 9-11 SALE SALE SALE

Dunhaven--A Place of Ideas

Here at Dunhaven Place, we want to foster your creativity and imagination. For that reason, we have put together a book with pictures taken from magazines because a picture says a thousand words. Or more! In these pages, you can find what you are looking for and thereby help us to understand exactly what it is you want.

Maybe you want something unique and one of a kind such as this bench made from a Victorian bed or the tea cart turned into a nightstand.

In these pages you can look for color inspiration and make sure we know just what color you want your piece of furniture to be.

The pictures cover a wide range of styles which can help you express yours to better advantage.

There are also photos that cover a wide range of distressing in painted furniture--from heavily distressed to not at all. Pointing to a picture of a piece you love will help us to know exactly in what direction you would like to go.

Lastly, these pages offer a selection of items that can serve as a guide for us when we are out looking for treasures. Are you looking for a daybed or mantel as pictured below? Or a pillow, dresser scarf or topiary as seen?

Come on in and check out the idea book and see if it can help you express your wants and needs better.
