Sassy Living Below the Mason-Dixon Line


‘Tis the Season — Almost!

The season has begun!  I know, Halloween was just  a moment ago, but at Wharf Hill in Smithfield, Virginia, an elegant open house today announced the official beginning of Christmas.   My friend Teri and I took the Jamestown Ferry to the Isle of Wright, and stopped in the historic area store, where country living and decor is raised to a high art.  (Think Martha Stewart meets Ralph Lauren on a chic sleigh ride.) They begin their holiday festivities the first weekend in November, so it seemed the whole town was in attendance.

Smithfield, you might know, is located on the Pagan River not far from Jamestown.  Famous for hams and other pork products, the town was established in 1752 by Arthur Smith IV as a seaport.  Wharf Hill is a nod to this illustrious past.  Take a look and better yet, take a trip!
