Perfect place to spend Saturday……………

Hang on to your Spring hats, or warm beanies if you're up north!
It was so worthwhile visiting SuzAnna's Antiques this weekend - I just have to share 
some of the great things on offer. The crowds were enormous 
being it was such a gorgeous day.

~ Click pics for details ~ 

I also took pics of Easter vignettes - I'll share 
those closer to the holiday.
I must admit I was NOT unable to walk away from the best 
little shop in town - well it's bigger than ever these 
days - without something new after all!  
Will show you you my lucky find at a later date.


  1. I just love having a peek in Suzanna's shop. I saw an olive bucket...been wanting one for the longest time!

    I think I heard through the grapevine that you were going to be off on another adventure in June. We will be in your neck of the woods for 2 weeks; the last week of May and first week of June. It would be so great to meet up! We are planning a few small trips while there and Raleigh would be lovely to see! :) Let me know if you have any openings in that busy schedule of yours.


  2. Oh how I miss shopping at Suzannas.... Definitely a wonderful place to stroll and shop around, specially when the weather is warm and beautiful!! All your photos are beautiful!! Wow! They got the shop full of pretty things, very nice! I love the white cabinet. :)
    Dear, enjoy the rest of your Sunday! Love ~ Vanessa

  3. It would be so much fun to go to a shop like that. So many sweet things to see. Can't wait to see your treasures.

  4. Some very interesting objects. Appealing chest of drawers, even though the colour is not my taste. What are those white square things in the last photo? They look like moulds for making something, but I can not see why there would be so any? Or as they trims that are to be glued onto corners? Excess hardware stock? Branding irons for errant husbands?

    1. Well as you can imagine, I'm chuckling as only you can make me Louise! "Branding irons for errant husbands" - what a hoot! Actually I wondered myself and picked one up because I love anything with a fleur-de-lis. They appeared to be porcelain tiles. Perhaps one here and there in a backsplash behind the sink might work - but rows and rows of them would drive me crazy and I'd never want to see another!!!!
      I love the chest too - it's painted in Annie Sloan's 'Napoleonic Blue' chalk paint and is quite lovely up close.

      Nice to hear from you as always. See you're hot with some rain in Darwin……….doesn't it ever cool a wee bit?

  5. Not sure why it stands out so much to me, but I absolutely LOVE that painting of the woman's face (in your second photograph). Perhaps it's her Farrah Fawcett hair, or her rosy cheeks? It's so cute!

  6. Ooh, lovely glimpses of Susanna's shop. My eye was drawn to those cast iron (?) fleur de lis. Beautiful pieces.

  7. Oh I agree - what a wonderful way to spend a weekend. And I just knew you were going to find a treasure that you couldn't leave without. If I lived closer I know I'd be haunting that place and finding treasures too.

  8. This most definitely is a beautiful way to spend your weekend. And how can you not find a little treasure there? Love it.

  9. Oh dear, another shop that I'd love to walk and wonder around in! I saw some things that could certainly become mine instantly! Thanks for sharing~
    Happy day to you!

  10. Oh, my, my, my. SuzAnna's shop looks like the perfect place to shop. Love the bird tags, the napkins rings, the painted chests. Everything! You're going to make us wait to see what you bought, Mary? I can't wait to see.

  11. Of course, we must walk away with something, even if it something small. Photos too for sure.
    How I would love walk through this shop with you. Each time you post pictures from SuzAnna's
    I dream a little dream of that walk and finding small treasures.


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