The Rosemary House

Far away, in an interesting town named Mechanicsburg, is a family-operated herb business that was started 35 years ago by an extraordinary herbalist named Bertha Reppert. Today two of her daughter's carry on this family run business, operating an herbal shop and a tea room called The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances Tea Room. Susanna's duties encompass the herbal shop and gardens, while Nancy is the proprietress of the tea room. Of course their duties interface as they intertwine the events they are individually responsible for. Famous in their respective circles, they are published writers and have been featured in many beautiful magazines. Last year they started their own blog, appropriately called Rosemary's Sampler. In celebration, they conducted a give-away and I was the fortunate winner of one of their prizes! Now, a beautiful "Rosemary House" afghan makes it home at my house. Thank you, Nancy and Susanna. I will treasure it always. . .it means much to me.

    I love the *Rosemary House* afghan. It looks so inviting to wrap around oneself. I know that you will enjoy it and treasure it.

    Nancy's *Sweet Remembrances Tea Room* and the *Rosemary House* are on my shortlist of places to visit.
