People often ask "Are you Mary or Martha?" I say "I'm Dawn, but i want to BE like Mary- paying close and loving attention to the things in life that i value most, faith and family! I named the store after these 2 sisters in the Bible as a daily reminder to keep my priorities in check!
In the 20 years since I opened the store, I've had the chance to be in some of the areas most exquisite homes. I've decorated commercial and office spaces and traveled all over the country to find new and exciting decor. I even traveled out of the country to study color and become a True Color Expert!
But I get the biggest kick our of helping ladies in small homes and condos transform tired and dated rooms with a new paint color and a few new throw pillows and accessories. Almost every home I go in gets a new furniture arrangement and I smile and nod when I hear "I never thought of that!"
Many years and many homes have sharpened my ability to scout out new art and accessories that can be easily added to items already in a home, yet adding that "just what was needed" new piece. What a great privilege it is (and my heart still flips a little!) when i venture out to purchase items for my store and for my customers. I welcome you warmly into the store, where my team and I will help you solve the most difficult decorating challenges.
Hope to see you soon!
"As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where Martha opened her home to them. Her sister Mary sat at Jesus feet, listening to everything He said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be done. She came and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself?" Tell her to help me!
"Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed, indeed only one.
Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her."
