Exploring this Weekend…….

Went to my favorite local flea market this weekend, Woodstock Antiques. I always find the best vintage treasures there all the time. Here’s a few photos of some of my favorite booth finds……..love the lighting fixtures!

It’s always fun to take a stroll at a local flea market on a Sunday afternoon…….it’s so relaxing and clears the mind!

For all the book lovers, my latest Summer read is Susan Mallery’s, “The Friendship List”. If you haven’t read any of her books yet, you really need too. They are all so good!

The hydrangeas are still blooming here in Atlanta…….not blooming quite as much as they did when it was cooler. But I still manage to find a few blooms to put in a vase on my desk.

What you you doing this Summer? Reading anything good? Leave us a comment, as we would love to hear from you!

A Little Floral Charm…….

It’s a gloomy day here in the Atlanta area, so I decided to share a little floral cheer with you all. Here are some photos from around the business…….our hydrangeas are just starting to bloom!

I’ve been painting this week and have added these flea market treasures around in the garden here at the shop. I have always loved fun little chairs in the garden.

Today’s Bounty: a Few Garden Cuttings……..

Here’s a few photos from the herb garden at our business in Woodstock…………just picked these hydrangea beauties from out in the front of the property. They are still blooming quite a bit, considering our 90 degree weather for this month.

So I always place them in my office to make it cheerier and easier for me to do my paperwork. I add some flowering mint from the herb area and it makes my work space smell so good. And the mint lasts for at least two weeks in water.

This morning is so pretty outside, that I just could not resist sharing these quick photos taken today with you!

I’m growing snap beans this year too. I like to snap and freeze them for some fresh Winter veggies. I forgot that the bean plant flowers as well! For lunch at my shop I cut them into bit sizes and add them to my salad. Very yummy and healthy!

Do you have a favorite veggie you like to plant in your garden? Would love to hear about your gardening tips!

Sunflowers Always Make Me Smile!

Do Sunflowers make you smile? They always bring a smile to my face and that makes everything much cheerier. I planted some this year from seeds, at the shop, and they are doing really great. I used the Two Queens Sunflower Seeds by Botanical Interests. They were purchased at Pikes Nursery and the plants should grow to 5-7 feet tall when they are full grown. They are doing great and headed to be in that range of height.

This is our puppy Chloe helping me check on the garden!

Here are some more photos of our hydrangeas at the shop. I spread coffee grounds around their base last Fall and with all the rain we had, it has resulted in an abundance of gorgeous blooms! Just had to share these with you……they are my favorite Spring flower, in case you can’t tell…..lol.

If you enjoy reading as much as I do, then you will want to hear about this new book out from Susan Mallery. The title is: The Summer of Sunshine & Margot. I was able to get an advance copy by being on her review team. It was such a great feel good Summer read about two sisters and their careers paths. Packed full of romance, goodness and family dynamics. I couldn’t put it down once I started it. So I definitely recommend that this be added to your Summer reading list!

Here is Chloe and me enjoying our reading session………:)

What are you reading this Summer……I’m always looking for new authors to enjoy!
