ABO Open House – More than just Preservation


20 years ago began a love affair for “saving” the outdoors inside my home. While many would prefer silks for their always fresh look – I have to say I love the look and feel of the actual creation that God gave us to begin with as adornment to my home. It was this love for the “real” that brought my heart to a place of wanting to capture that outdoor beauty and keep it on display for as long as possible. Thus the beginning of Anne Bruening Originals “enchanting dried florals & designs”.

Economy being what it is, however, the retail end of the shop has changed much over the last few years to be mostly (I bet 98%) preservation of your flowers from your special events. BUT NOT SO at Open House time! During this time of year you’ll find here: wreaths (both for holiday and home), Christmas trees, angels, ornaments, gift bags, pressed flowers, crosses, paper weights etc… each one meticulousy hand-crafted(yep! even the gift bags are hand-crafted). No two items are the same and some (like a larger Christmas tree) can take 3 or more hours to craft. And when I say larger, I’m talking a 15 inch tree! It’s all in the details. And to me there is nothing more beautiful than the “natural” for a picture perfect homespun Christmas! (of course, I think that for any time of year as well)!

So please come and enjoy a time of fellowship, refreshments and door prizes at my annual Open House on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14 from 10:00am to 7:00pm. For an extra treat – most items in the shop will be 20% off in celebration of 20 years of service to the community. (This does not include items that may be already on sale or my shadowboxes). It should be a fun weekend for the community – Holiday Shop Hop in New Wilmington (with the Grand Prize to be announced) and Christmas Open House in Volant.

Shop Local – You won’t regret it! There’s something for everyone.
