Inside the H.B. Stewart Manor House- Master Bedroom

These last three nights at Quail Hollow State Park have been a blur of activity!

In spite of the rain nearly 1,500 people visited the park for Christmas at the Hollow.  Barb and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories in the master bedroom and hearing memories of others.

In case you missed it here are some photos from our room!
“I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” Master Bedroom tree with over 700 lights!

“Joy” master bedroom mantle.  The “O” is a picture frame and the “Y” is a branch from our backyard.
OR according to the 8 year old little boy walking through the room “Dad! Look at that huge sling-shot”

Master bath and dressing room.  Sconce decor was made by wiring ornaments together!

Master dressing room decorated in pinks and golds and vintage accessories from our Etsy shop.

Bottle Brush Trees, the decorated mantle, and Dutch tile outlined fireplace.  It’s so cozy, we just want to curl up and stay all day.

See more photos from the event on the Best Bib and Tucker Facebook page and Faded Velvet’s Facebook page.  They decorated Bonnie Stewart’s room!


Guest Post on Discover Hartville: Christmas at the Hollow

We’re writing over on the Discover Hartville Blog today!

Barb shares her memories of Christmas at the Hollow from over 20 years ago when Meg and Em were little and how we’ve made a new tradition by joining in on decorating for the event.

Knee High by the Fourth of July

Ever wondered how Best Bib and Tucker got the name for the “Knee High” Sale we have at the end of June?

Knee High by the Fourth of July is an expression used by corn farmers here in the Midwest.  It means that if your corn reaches at least to the knees it got off to a good start and a decent crop can be expected.  The accuracy of the expression depends on when it was planted and what type of corn it is.

Our corn at home and the Hartville Community Garden has passed the test!  Only slightly hail ravaged from last night’s storm.

Strawberry Picking at Walnut Drive Gardens

It’s a beautiful day for strawberry picking!

Strawberry fields at 2129 Randolph Rd, Suffield Ohio

We had a great time out in the strawberry fields this morning.  Here’s our haul:

Three 8 quart baskets of beautiful berries.  The plants were so chock full of fruit, picking took no time (30 minutes)!  Even these cuties were getting in on the fun.  “Only pick the red ones.”

An 8 qt pick your own basket costs $13.50 (4 qt pre-picked berries are also available for $13.50)
Our three baskets weighed a total of 34.5lbs!

Can’t beat $1.17/pound for strawberries plus the fun of getting out and enjoying the pick 🙂

Hartville Community Garden

Another reason Hartville is a great place to live, work, and play!  Thank you Hartville Hardware for sponsoring.
Land for gardening at Hartville Flea Market
As some of you know, growing vegetables at the Wise house is a summertime must.  In the past we have grown zucchini, squash, pole beans, lima beans, green beans, snap peas, corn, carrots, radishes, all kinds of lettuce, tomatoes, garlic, potatoes, and probably a whole bunch of other stuff that I’m forgetting.

In addition to our home gardens we requested two 10×40 plots at Hartville’s Community Garden.  We’re currently growing corn and green beans.  Even though it’s been ridiculously dry most of the plants are up and growing.
Spring in Hartville's GardenIt’s so much fun to see what people are planting.  I can’t wait to see it in full bloom.

It looks like plots are still available.  Call Jim at 330-699-6337 to reserve your area.  Water is available on site, just bring your own watering cans and equipment (or stop by Hartville Hardware right next door and pick some up).



The Wedding March: A Delicious Day

A wedding is an awesome opportunity to support local businesses.  As part of this month’s wedding focus we will be featuring some of the shops and services around Hartville that helped to make the day so special.

In the spotlight this week are Hartville Chocolate Factory, Cakes by Debbie White, and Bev Green Catering.

The rehearsal dinner was held at The Barrel Room in North Canton.  Their private room was a great place for the family and wedding party to gather and celebrate.  And because they allow outside food brought in we were able to to have the fabulous food of Hartville’s own Bev Green Catering.  We have used Bev for catering at Best Bib and Tucker and have been to weddings and parties she has catered.  The food is always delicious and beautifully presented.

You may have noticed we have a love of desserts after reading the menu from the bridal shower. I mean really, why have one cake when you can have THREE!
Emily’s wedding cakes were made by Hartville-area resident Debbie White.  She was a joy to work with and created beautiful shabby chic cakes.  She was even able to pull colors from a bridesmaid dress fabric swatch.

And to top off the sweets fest we included assorted chocolates from Hartville Chocolate Factory on each table and on the cake table.  Hartville Chocolate Factory has a chocolate fountain for rent and is also able to create customized chocolate bars and coins.

The Wedding March: Local Business Spolight on Pure Energy Entertainment

A wedding is an awesome opportunity to support local businesses.  As part of this month’s wedding focus we will be featuring some of the shops and services that helped to make the day so special.

In the spotlight today is DJ Jerry Humes.

When Emily started planning her wedding she put her fiance, Matt, in charge of music and DJ decisions.  Because Matt has spent quite a bit of time in the DJ booth himself, I knew this reception was going to be quite the party.  And what a fun party it was!

My favorite part was Emily and Matt playing Jerry’s version of The Newlywed Game.

So now I’m turning over the blog to my new brother-in-law, because really who better to write a recommendation.

Jerry Humes djed our wedding reception.  He is the owner/operator of Pure Energy Entertainment.

He is the perfect person to have entertain your guests as he pays attention to every detail, makes sure every moment is captured, and will keep all of your guests entertained all the way up to the final minute!

Jerry has been in the business for over 10 years. Pure Energy caters to all events: weddings, private parties, school functions, fundraisers, etc.

He is out of Stark County, but has been known to service the entire Northeast Ohio region. His phone number is 330-323-0929 and you can also easily find him on Facebook. However, make sure you contact him early as his calendar fills up twelve months in advance.

We would recommend Jerry over and over and over again!
