2017 Fall Decorating Ideas

Where does the time go!  Thanksgiving and Christmas is just right around the corner!

Are you stumped for Thanksgiving decorating ideas, check out this article in Country Living magazine.  I especially like #37.  I actually created several of these signs for my booths and they are selling.  Read the article to find out what sign it is.

Until next time,  Have a blessed Thanksgiving and be grateful for the many blessings that you have.  Susanna



Many exciting changes

Hope and Happiness Vintage Furniture is in the process of being re-branded.  Since, we specialize in high end custom artistic furniture, it was time to update the logo to reflect the new feel of our company.   We are excited about the future.

Since our humble beginnings as furniture flippers on Craigslist, we have expanded with lots of custom orders, furniture painting classes, and 3 mini boutiques within the far northwest corridor in Tomball, Spring, and Magnolia.

Not only do we specialize in furniture refinishing, we now carry Farm and French home decor within these boutiques.  We also expanded into onsite work to include  furniture refinishing, cabinets, doors, islands, and fireplace mantels.   Occasionally, we will have a presence at one of the local vintage shows.

Lastly, we continue to grow our online presence.   New website with built in shopping cart coming real soon.

Yes, we are busy.  We could not do it without you!  Thank you.
