Serenity Sunday...week 56

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscapeLay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart. ~Celia Thaxter

The summer night is like a perfection of thought.
~Wallace Stevens

In summer, the song sings itself.
~William Carlos Williams

Serenity Sunday...week 55

Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless. ~Bill Watterson

Jamesville Balloon Fest was held this weekend. I was just on my way home and saw tons of them flying west toward the town of Manlius. Must be the winds aloft are flowing westward!

If you are ever in town on the second weekend of June...make it a point to go. The best launch is the 6 a.m. launch on Saturday and Sunday morning. I promise, you will not be disappointed!

Common Keepings Antique Show

I'm a little behind in my posting, but I have to make a point of mentioning the "Common Keepings" antique show. It's a new show that looks like will become an annual show! Great time was had by all. The exhibitors were knowledgeable, the prices were reasonable and the selection was great! It was a kind of fluke that I went and I'm glad that I did. Thanks Janet for a wonderful time!

Martha makes the most wonderful soy candles!

The hall was packed with Americana and collectible patriotic items.

Check out those quilts!

This is one of my finds. Look at my bird mansion!

Judy and I did pretty well...filled the back seat and the trunk!

The bird house and tabletop cupboard that I got.

I mention this because, if you are from the Syracuse area or within driving distance...keep an eye peeled for the next show! I'll try to remember to post when I hear about it. I recommend that you make the trip...not too many dealers...only about 30 or so...but quality pieces! For more pictures please see my friend and fellow shopper Judy's blog Orchard Drive West! (and while you're there, check out her great header picture! Love those flags!)

Serenity Sunday...week 54

“If a June night could talk,
it would probably boast that it
invented romance.”

Gardening...June 1, 2010

I am amazed at the growth of my gardens this year. I've only been puttering so far, but jeesh! They are growing like crazy.
There is something to be said for an early and warm spring.

Hosta, fern and Lily of the Valley
New garden (on the left of the arch) that I put in this weekend. It was crazy hot this weekend, humid. There are a couple of Coreopsis, a couple of lavender and a Meideland Rose Bush.

Mock Orange
This is the beautiful birdhouse that I found at an antique show this past weekend. It's bigger than it looks....sort of like a bird mansion! I haven't found a spot for it yet so it's residing on a stack of bricks until I find someplace 'safe'.
