SuzAnna's Antiques..........................

.......................greening up for Spring.

I've been back and forth to SuzAnna's Antiques often recently.  The weather is warming up and the shoppers and browsers are enjoying their time both inside and out, searching for that perfect treasure to take home.  Each dealer is fluffing up their space.....................

.......and there's plenty of green of every shade making the arrival of Spring the subject of daily conversation.

Love the unusual green roses on this vintage dish.

I love what dealer Sam has been up to.........designing and making spectacular Spring nature scenes under glass.

The tall stemmed container is a favorite - several to choose from - and would make a very attractive table centerpiece mixed in with other treasures.

...............and last, but by no means least..........sweet Rhonda who works part-time at SuzAnna's Antiques, dressed not only in Spring green at the recent vintage fashion show, but also wore the most incredible piece of beaded jewelry I've ever seen.  

This beautiful collar necklace took her about 100 hours to stitch..........even the clasp is astounding.  You'll have to admit this was a true labor of love....and she made it up as she went, no pattern or sketch to follow.  I'm always amazed at talent such as this, a one of a kind stunning creation, a museum quality rock Rhonda!!

Beaded beauty.
Thanks Rhonda for allowing me to share your amazing jewels! 


  1. That necklace is gorgeous. Rhonda is very talented. Love the little plate with the green roses ;-)

  2. Your pictures are lovely. It makes me want to hop in the car and drive the two and a half hours to come and shop! Carla

  3. So many pretty things. Have a great day.

  4. Mary, your photos make me want to fly in and do some shopping. ;-)
    You certainly know how to capture the essence of spring shopping. ~ Sarah

  5. That was really stunning.....and I'd love to have that little boy sitting on his bed, too!

  6. A little visit from Norway. Thank yoy!

  7. Beautiful! Rhonda is so special!!

  8. Wow! That necklace is stunning I have to agree. The designs Sam does makes me realize I am so far behind on changing things out for spring. I've been cleaning from top to bottom during cold, yucky weather, and planting when it is nice. At least I can enjoy looking at all your lovely photos!
    Take care,


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
