The Mercantile sale was a huge success! I can safely say that past sales didn't hold a candle to the Merc sale. Thankful. I still have a few items left, but I'm contacting the Veterans association to come and pick it up. They will be thrilled to receive quality new clothing and tables, chairs. I'm thrilled to have empty spots at both my home and shop. It's hard to organize and create a Zen space when there's no room to roam! Beginning to fill the love...
My tape measure has been my best friend the past few days. I've been measuring windows, hallways, table heights, among other things.
The little country bouquet came from my garden. Cone flower, chocolate mint, Gerber daisy, and even flowering cilantro. Snippets of summer greens and goodness to admire and share.
Peaches, peaches, fuzzy skinned ripe and juicy. The Missouri Peaches are ready for consumption! They're a bit pricey at our local farmers' market, but I indulged, and picked up a couple of baskets. They're ripe and ready!
We're gearing up for this event!
I'll be working the apothecary shop, but how nice it will be to lend an ear to live music playing on the shop porch. Fun day for all.
We'll remove the porch swing, and that will be the stage area. It it's hot I'll place a fan on the porch and we'll be ready to rock and roll.
Kate Rose, is such a talented artist! Love it when she plays the Ukulele! Kate performed last year at Bittersweet and she's returning again. Yippee!
Just because I love home grown flowers, here's some more garden pics.
Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers.
Officially, the first day of summer arrives on Tuesday. It's kind of confusing on when the day actually arrives because of time zones. Here's how they determine that.
So I guess if you reside on the East coast, the first day of summer falls on Wednesday over Tuesday. No matter, it's a grand day and a reason to celebrate!
Summer well wishes,
