This fall Legacy Too, a Sharpsburg, Ga. based business, will offer workshops featuring ideas for fall decoration of the table or doorway, instruction on coordinating fabrics and paint in the home, flower arranging and the value of appraisal of those special home accessories and antiques. The classes are always combined with a tea which will include small sandwiches, a sweet and a savory (and of course, tea). “To add that special touch we're known for, it's all served on antique china and linen,” said Susan Godfrey, Legacy Too owner.

"We are excited about the excellent instructors for our fall workshops," said Godfrey. “Each one is outstanding in her own field." Because of popular requests some classes will be in the evening and on Saturday.

The Fabric Schemes and Color Dreams workshop is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. Gina Cannell of Cannell Designs will be the instructor and will discuss the power of color to transform a room, to cover architectural flaws and more. Cannell, of Tyrone, received her certification from The Art Institute of Atlanta and owns her own business.

Shelly Harsin with Red Door Interiors will lead two different classes at Legacy Too this fall. Fall Entryways and Front Doors is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8, from 2-4 p.m. Harsin will conduct a second worshop to discuss and demonstrate Fall Tablescapes on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. She will give unique ideas on how to take what you have and add a few gorgeous fall accessories to transform your table and compliment your home. Harsin has more than 18 years experience with home decor and floral shop. A Newnan resident, Harsin is a certified Home Stager and a member of the Home Stagers Guild.

The Val-ue this With Val workshop will be offered on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and again on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 6-8 p.m. Both classes will be led by Valerie Hale, antique dealer and appraiser for a number of years. Hale is an accredited member of the International Society of Appraisers. As a native of Savannah, Ga., her love of and interest in antiques began when she was a child. The class is designed to get the participants involved while offering an on-site evaluation service as well. Participants are asked to each bring an item for discussion.

The Flower Arranging Made Simple workshop is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 6 from 2-4 p.m. BeDazzled Florist of Sharpsburg and Peachtree City will give professional tips on arranging and keeping cut flowers fresh. Godfrey said, "Each participant will receive a vintage pattern teacup and supplies and will be assisted in making an arrangement to take home."

The workshops will be held at Legacy Too, located on Ga. Highway 154 next to the Sharpsburg Post Office. Workshop fees range from $15 to $20 per class and include everything, due in advance of the scheduled event.
