No doubt you’ve seen our little red barn as you’ve driven into Halcyon House Antiques. We had it built by a bunch of hunky Amish guys a few years ago to replace the old barn that had fallen down. It’s sited so perfectly in a dip in the meadow, with a bank of trees behind it.It’s become a tradition to take a photograph of the little red barn on every visit to the shop. Each time we see it, the light is different, the sky is different and the weather is different.

Sam Robinson is having a show of his pet portraits at Halcyon House Antiques, beginning Saturday, October 11th.
And he’s accepting commissions for portraits of man’s (or woman’s) best friend to be completed in time for the Christmas holidays.
Sam spends time with the dogs, getting to know them and their personalities, and takes pictures to help recall their spirits while he’s painting. Then he heads to his studio and starts the painting.Sam is a master at catching the spark in the dog’s eye, the shading of his coat, and the particular angle at which the dog holds his paw or cocks his head.Sam’s style is referred to as Expressive Realism, and with simple and effective brushstrokes, he grasps the essence that makes the dog so special to its owners.
In addition to Sam’s paintings, Halcyon House Antiques will have some of Rebecca Vizard’s BViz Fortuny dog collars and leashes. These are seriously gorgeous and your dog will be so unbelievably chic wearing one of these.
Come on out to Halcyon House and see the exhibition starting Saturday, or join us for a drink on Friday evening. We’d love to see you, and we know you will love Sam’s portraits…
And seriously, it’s not too early to think about shopping for the holidays!
Please RSVP to Eric so we’ll have enough booze!

Felix is in Baltimore for a few days, and Halcyon House Antiques held an English Drinks Party and Book Signing for him. Dick Francis’s DAMAGE, by Felix Francis has just been released, so it was extra special to be able to get the book on its release date! It’s also the 50th book that the Francis’s have written, so that’s quite an accomplishment.Felix brought along copies of the covers of all 50 books, which have been done and redone over time, moving from very modern graphics, to the more realistic cover of his newest book. If you look closely below, you can see several of the older titles arranged on the mantel and the newest book on the desk.
Felix was charming and gave a nice background chat to the crowd and then spent the next hour or more signing books for everyone… and several books for a number of the guests!He was also very kind about posing with the guests, many of whom were from the local hunts, or were riders themselves. Lots of our friends were on hand to celebrate and to get an early start on picking up a unique Christmas present!As usual, the flowers at Halcyon House Antiques were gorgeous and from the gardens up at the farm. Felix is on a cross-country tour now, so check his Facebook page to see where he’ll be next. And if you’re looking for a great Christmas present, Halcyon House has a dozen or so signed copies of DAMAGE for sale.
