and the living is easy

aaaaaaahhhh...it finally feels like summer...

beautiful views from the pool

fresh flower bouquets from my new cutting garden

tiny old bottle bud vases

old fashioned favorites like strawflowers and stock

buzz, buzz, buzz

fresh-picked raspberries from our garden

thank you

Thank you to everyone that sent their sweet comments, both publicly and privately, about losing our beloved Mikey-J
I miss him every day but your warm wishes comfort me - thank you

eye candy

had to share some recent vignettes in our antiques shoppe...some really great treasures

LOVE the opera glasses!

old tin picnic basket, adorable rocker and a herb drying rack that I may just nab for my lavender bundles

cream soup bowl and saucer - the set is just so sweet

yummy souvenir Adirondack Mtns balsam pillow and an old frog planter

wonderful old wire basket, cute brush set and a fabulous trunk in the background

adorable Campfire Girls book set, unique woodsy teaset and a scrumptious decorative tray

cutie-patootie lunch pail and a fun assortment of old soaps in original packaging...you can barely see it in this photo but there is a fab tramp art miniature bed made from old clothespins that I covet

a closeup of a few items in Retro Alley - this mixer is adorable and it works!

funky aprons, linens and folk art beaded baskets

with new items brought in daily it's so hard to restrain myself from a buying frenzy :)

a hole in our hearts

I am sad today
we have lost a very good friend

yesterday our sweet boy lost his brave battle with lymphoma

we cried until our eyes were swollen and hurting
today I woke up this morning and for a split second thought it was just a nightmare - grief can play mean tricks on the mind
we are numb from the pain

words can't express the hole in our hearts and in our home
he was a wonderful, joyful soul and we are so grateful to have had his companionship over these last 8 years
