When we were children, our parents would go visiting.

Visiting was a social event without pretense. It was not a dinner party nor was it cocktail hour. It was simply a time to catch up on the latest news, play a couple of card games, relax in the company of your neighbors. It was dropping in on friends and finding a warm welcome.

We visit here at Miss Effie's.

Relax with your picnic lunch in the corn-zebo or in the shade of the lath house. Bring your knitting and spend sometime under an apple tree. Or count the tea cups blooming on the tree. Watch the hankies flutter in the afternoon breeze.

We want Miss Effie's to be like a visit to your grandmother's on a Sunday afternoon. We hope you enjoy our vintage treasures as much as we enjoy discovering them.

And be sure to visit the Summer Kitchen where magic lives! From hand spun yarn to creative art work and farm-fresh eggs..... the Summer Kitchen is full of local goodness.

We ask you to come a-visitin' at Miss Effie's.
You are always welcome.
The magic is there...just have to open your eyes, ears and nose. The multiple vases on my dining room table from that one gallon milk jug are truly amazing. If I only had some unannounced company, boy, would they be impressed!

Miss Effie's is a peaceful oasis from the fast-paced world we live in. Flowers, fish, furry friends, feathered friends, and frolicking with the flutterbys from the time we pulled into the driveway. It's a great place to sit and listen to the corn grow.
