Pear Tree Design & Antiques

The first chest-on-chest from yesterday's post was from Pear Tree Design & Antiques, a delightful shop in Crestwood. The image, above, is the back of their business card. There are times when I am green with envy and bitter because I did not think of something first. I had that feeling when I saw this card for the first time.

Pear Tree is simply charming in every way. As you can see, there is an excellent selection of garden furniture and ornament. Perfect for inside or out.

The wonderful thing about Pear Tree is they have lovely gift items as well.

It is one of the first places I stop if I need to pick something up for a good girlfriend.

And, when I stopped in last week I learned that Pear Tree has a little surprise up its sleeve.

A special guest dropping by.

Reknown Tulsa interior designer with a French flair,Charles Faudree, is coming to Pear Tree to sign copies of his new book, Country French Florals and Interiors. Francophiles mark your calendars, Wednesday, June 11th from 1 - 3 p.m. Pear Tree is located at 303 E. 55th Street. And, yes, I will remind you, but don't wait until June to go by. There has been a recent shipment, so there are treasures to be had even without a book signing.

I feel like I'm cheating getting to see your post the night before... My coffee won't be the same in the morning, but I'll go to sleep with an extra little smile.

Oh my they certainly must greet you emphatically when you enter the shop! They must all exclaim, "The Partridge has landed" - for that sure looks like the perfect tree for you!

Oh, I love Charles Faudree's work! Lucky!

I love Pear Tree and try to stop by whenever I am in the city -- I will mark June 11 for I also am a fan of Charles Faudree.

Your post was like a surrogate trip to Pear Tree -- thank you.

That Jefferson quote is one of my all-time faves! Meg has used it in her sidebar. It's just brilliant.

Beautiful wares.

So charmed by the quote on the back of the business card. What a treat to virtual visit the shop.

Mrs. B... that's the quote I have at the top of my blog. I had read it somewhere and then had to search hard to find it again. It's such a perfect quote from an amazing man.

Meg - I noticed it immediately on your blog, and knew that I would always feel at home there. I always have.

Awww shucks, Mrs. B!
