A few days ago I spent time cleaning and adding items to my booth at SuzAnna's Antiques. The temperature was down just a wee bit, 90 rather than 98 degrees, phew! SuzAnna's is not air conditioned, therefore it heats up quickly under the tin roof.
I'm hoping the shoppers will be out soon, looking for treasures to lighten and brighten their homes and gardens now that Summer is almost here. May was a rather slow shopping month due most likely to all the bustling about for graduations, and the Memorial Day holiday when many people leave town for the beach.
Several pieces I expected to sell quickly are still hanging around, waiting for the buyer who can't resist. Guess this business is like that and patience is required. I doubt seriously that many people get rich this way, but it sure is fun and you meet the nicest people.
These warm afternoons mean stopping for a refreshing drink.........a chilled lemonade, an iced coffee............or even a nice cuppa................
...........this fragrant loose tea from my friend Delila in Finland is being enjoyed. I love the name "The Emperor's Bride", the flavor is slightly fruity. I'm making a pot on these hot afternoons and enjoying sipping from my new Emma Bridgewater small mug, a treat to myself when shopping in Devon recently - perfect for tea and a change from a cup and saucer. Part of the Black Toast & Marmalade group, this little mug is aptly named A VERY USEFUL MUG.
So, living by these now well known British words from the WWII era (I purchased two of these great pillows while home in the UK), I'm hoping I can keep calm and carry on through these oppressive Summer months ahead - the unusually hot, dry Spring already has us, and our gardens, frazzled and fried here in the Southeast!
Thought you'd enjoy seeing some of the great potting tables now displayed at SuzAnna's Antiques.
Such a great way to use odd and ends..........
...............and here below, just had to share the new dressing room for trying on the amazing assortment of vintage clothing now for sale at SuzAnna's.
We'd love to have you stop by if you live in the area or are passing through on your Summer travels.
