Yesterday, a cool and breezy but bright sunshiny day, I stopped by SuzAnna's Antiques
when I was doing a late afternoon run for a few groceries from Trader Joe's.
People were out - gals shopping diligently now the 'decorating gene' has been
kick started with the better weather, a few husbands and boyfriends tagging along,
such as mine - husband, not boyfriend of course!
Kids were playing around the Vintage Village complex and all in all
everyone seemed cheery now that Spring is here.
Granddaughter Jasmin was working at SuzAnna's - her smile is always
enough to make me happy - come rain or shine.
So I looked around, not for anything in particular as I have no pressing interior projects
planned for Spring. The exterior such as porch, deck, gazebo and garden need mainly
manual labor and TLC rather than decoration this year - enough said on that daunting subject!
Of course I took a few photos to share with you as many of you love antiquing, thrifting
and treasure hunting.
The Easter decor was arriving and there will be a lot more displayed this coming week.
I have my collection of white rabbits out of storage and will be playing with
These vintage extension rules I almost brought home! Bob slapped my hand
as I reached for them and told me I didn't need them.
Of course I really don't, but they are so neat and reminded me of the one
my parents used for measuring when I was growing up.
I do love the pair of lamps. I didn't read the tag so not sure of the style - classical,
art deco? They are in great condition though and would be so attractive
in the right room.
Lovely glass dessert bowls - makes one thinks of whipping up a fluffy mousse,
or later churning some homemade ice cream - do you do that!
Hats? No, Easter bonnets!
Never thought of using a chandelier as a hat rack - how perfect.
These were really pretty 'bonnets' and, as I love hats, I slapped my own hand
before reaching for one.
I really think the woven straw cloche is awesome - I can see Lady Mary
or Lady Edith wearing this one on a Spring day around the spectacular grounds
of Downton Abbey. Do you agree?
Do you wear hats?
That was a quick walk through SuzAnna's Antiques. Now the weather is warming
I'll get back more often. The merchandise changes rapidly at this very popular
venue - if you see something you like, don't wait because it will probably be
at somebody's home later today.
If you're a 'treasure hunter' I hope you will enjoy some Spring days
out and about at your favorite places soon.
