Take a seat in my garden

Garage sales on a sunny, summer Saturday always hold such wonder. What great surprises will someone be putting out for sale? I've been looking for the last few weeks for wooden chairs to paint and decorate, but more specifically, I wanted an old chair, even one that was broken, to put into my garden. Something like this:

She's perfect - and definitely a 'she' - a beauty from another time, happy to be repurposed. Someone already dressed her up with a splash of white paint - and it's perfectly wobbly and chippy - just right to hold some of summer's artistry.

Next stop, the supermarket. Believe it or not, waiting for me at the curb, I find one very lovely yellow Scabiosa, just yearning to come home and take a set out front!

I love a great deal!

I grabbed this necklace and matching earrings last October when I was on vacation at Tybee. Got it for a steal - about 80% off the original price. Goes great with summer clothing on hot day like today. Here in NY we're approaching 100 degrees! Stay cool!

Anyone looking for a home bargain?

I always find these articles so interesting. Unfortunately, I don't live in any of the areas spotlighted, nor do I currently want to! How about y'all?
