While browsing through fabulous Red Chair Antiques in New Hampshire, only the tiny space available in our bulging suitcases prevented me from gathering armfuls of beautiful French linens, shapely pieces of Swedish furniture, and assorted lovelies to bring back home.........well, in all honesty, that and the lack of an unlimited budget!
My treasures from this year's visit are a creamy, textured, country French linen table cloth with hand stitching, a vintage French hotel silver spoon, and sweet-smelling lavender filled sachets imprinted with the Red Chair logo.
Heaven for the taste buds............Summer fruits are ready. Fresh velvet-skinned apricots from California, blushing peaches picked right here in the south.........a bowl of these on the kitchen island promise healthy juicy treats for these steamy, endless, hot Summer days.
We are really enjoying bowls of fruit for snacks or easy desserts right now - a mix of strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, grapes, blueberries, plums....beautiful to look at, delicious to eat.
