Sycamore Springs Fall Open House

Ever since I was a child, my family has been making twice yearly pilgrimages to Sycamore Springs for their Autumn and Holiday open houses.  What is Sycamore Springs, exactly?  It's a little hard to explain.  It's not really an antique shop, but not quite a greenhouse either.  They basically sell stuff to decorate your house/garden, and I think they do interior designing/landscaping as well.  There are showrooms set up to show what your house could look like if you had the talent and eye for beauty that their designers possess.  Every since I was a child, I have aspired to someday have a home modeled after their style - and I am still aspiring.  I'm not even close to there yet. 

But anyway, I took some pictures of a few things that caught my eye this year.  Enjoy!
