    1. Hi Nancy, I found them at Ethan Allen almost 10 years ago. Look on the Wayfair site for “spindle” chairs. They often carry similar ones. Hope this helps.

  5. Yvonne, I have followed your blog for a long time. I love your classic decor advise your home is always so inspiring and welcoming.

I was so excited that my niece found that you were going to be at the Pottery Barn mall store so my sister, niece and I loaded up and made a day trip to see you.

    I love all of your post and read them all. You are so informative I feel you are talking just to me. I do not have a computer and do everything with my phone.

    1. Thank you for being a StoneGable reader and a part of our amazing StoneGable family! You are good to go! Using a phone works just fine!

  9. I first found Hymns and Verses and then Stone Gables. I have loved both the sights and find myself really enjoying reading the blogs. It is nice to see christian woman sharing their talents and encouraging so many of us. Thanks for all the great things your share that are so practical for us to use in making our homes inviting and fun for our families. Thank You!

  10. I love all your posts! I especially appreciated the post regarding color theory…… makes sense! Can you tell me where you got your living room sofa? We are building a home and are in need of a few items. Your sofa is perfect. Also, as a designer, can you recommend a source for quality French Berchere chairs? My mother had one which my sister inherited and my love affair with this chair continues. I am in South Carolina so traveling to shop isn’t a problem. Thank you for all you do!!!!
    God bless. Lark

    1. Hi Lark, what a happy name! The sofa is from Smith Brothers. I love their sofas. And as far as a Berchere Chair almost any good furniture manufacturer makes them. Hope this is helpful.
