By all bringing dishes and switching houses each month for entertaining, we manage to stay connected and not overwhelmed." -an excerpt from the lovely article "Elegant Entertaining Turned Inside Out" by Ashley Bommer Singh. 🍸🌷

Middleburg and its surroundings are well-known as an epicenter for horses and hounds. Not surprisingly, the area is a haven for dog lovers. As such, it is great news that the Museum of the Dog is now back in New York, just a short trip away. 🐶

“We the People …” Those three words opening the U.S. Constitution speak of the power of the people who grant the government its powers. And Fauquier native, John Marshall, worked to help ratify the Constitution in 1789, which became the guideline for the type of government we have today.

On April 6, The Mosby Heritage Area Association sponsored a symposium titled “The Life and Legacy of John Marshall: The Great Chief Justice.” It was held on land that was once owned by the Marshall family. This is one of several programs MHAA is hosting to commemorate the bicentennial of the landmark case McCulloch v. Maryland (1819), which is one of the first and most important Supreme Court cases on federal power.

Leave the department stores, shopping malls, and large housing developments behind and enter the green, luscious paradise that is The Plains, Virginia.

Visitors encounter a pleasant surprise as they stumble upon this quaint country town nestled in the rolling countryside. The town may look casual, consisting of one major intersection without a traffic light in sight, but its past was steeped with civil war history and its present is an enjoyable get away for tourists.

“I try to mix old and new and feature artists that I feel are really good…I love anything that is quality, unique, honest and in good taste.” Joanne Swift's collection has something for everyone and every budget. “I do everything from $6.50 up to $10,000. It’s a whole variety,“

She's the owner of The Shaggy Ram, located on Middleburg's main street for over 30 years, and is a 50-year veteran of the home decoration business. We'd say she knows a thing or two about design. 😉
