this was our tea and scone table that greeted everyone upon entering the shop. Sue made a wonderful chai tea that I consumed entirely too much of and Sally made yummy scones, which again I indulged in.
This is so cool! I'm going to steal this idea for a centerpiece this Spring. Anybody else going to grow carrots in their garden this year? Carrots remind me of the Rabbit and the Hare. Remember the Rabbit thought he had to run a million miles an hour to win the race and the Hare just plugged along at his own pace. A lesson I should ponder everyday...
It didn't rain on our Garden Party, so we were able to have goodies all up and down the sidewalk.
This is our new Jail Bird House, pretty cute huh?
I stole Sally away from the shop so we could go check out the other businesses doing this Progressive Party with us. We plan these fun events, and we're always on the wrong side of the counter so we can't enjoy them from that perspective too. Well this time, we had so many helping hands at the shop, I coerced (I mean CONVINCED) her to go.
We had fun. These pictures are from Redouz at Sue's. Sue has her own shop that I'm very envious of.
And of course, many wonderful repurposed pieces as well as great vintage finds.
Everything was displayed so nicely, the photo ops were endless...
I love this picture. The black in the background, the gleam off the canisters with the bright yellow lemons giving a punch of color.
On to Cathy's, Beyond the Garden Gate. It was so nice to see her smiling face. We're all very excited for our upcoming Vintage Gathering Flea Markets to begin out at her place. I'm just excited to see all my ever so talented 'junque girls' in one spot again!!
This was Cathy's prize for her giveaway. Purty cute!
See Sissy Sew participated in the Progressive Event too, and I'm ashamed to admit that we didn't have time to get over there. We'd told the gals helping at the shop we'd be gone an hour, and let's just say our time was well gone. I will get there to take some pictures, if you haven't been, it's a wonderful unique fabric shop in the new Battle Ground Village.
So, to leave you with this image...as I was rushing home from the baseball fields the other night to grab a pbj sandwich before heading off to Cub Scouts, I drove past our library. There was a mom who had parked in the lot and had her young daughters out, smelling the blossoms on the plum trees next to the road. That was a week ago, and that picture continues to linger in my head. So from me to you, don't pass by those chances you get to stop and smell the blossoms! Lisa :-)
