Country House Tableaus…Guest Tour

My friend and antiquing partner, Rusty Fletcher, has done wonders with his brick farmhouse outside Granville,Ohio. Rusty is a talented designer, illustrator and antique dealer who redefines mixing the high/low vintage buys.  Rusty will be set up with me in October at my farm for the fall Rural Society Antique and Garden sale…we often buy separately, but when we bring our finds together, everything seems to just mesh!  These photos from his home are just a small peek into his country house style.


A few great pieces, a King Charles Spaniel and a little Instagram....goes a long way!

Rusty’s photos are a small sample of the types of pieces available at the sale….and most of the time we don’t even save the best stuff for ourselves!  I am fortunate to know so many talented people that share many of my passions including antiques, design, gardens and entertaining…of course not necessarily in that order.


A grocery store orchid in the right container.....priceless!

Rusty and I both love an English kitchen garden.  He just got started on his this year and I would say it is already a big success.


Of course we are both addicted to birds…inside the house and in the garden.  Rusty’s pair of fantail pigeons….yes they are real.

The back half of the garage is a potting shed that opens up to the kitchen garden

Just a preview of the Ohio English Country Style treasures that will be available at The Rural Society Fall Sale….and a little decorating inspiration for your Sunday!  If you are interested in contacting Rusty for design or buying services please email
