So glad summer is finally here.  Last week as I walked around the island enjoying all the signs of summer and the lovely front porches, I started to get so excited to have our whole crew out here again this year!  Only a few weeks away!  Last summer we had two new babies and this summer we have a new baby and a bride-to-be joining our clan.  I feel so very blessed.
Can't wait!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

start collecting

Loved this look we saw in California!
This showroom was all set up for an evening wine tasting.
I just adore all the different vases and jars lining the tables.
It makes me want to start picking up any jar or vase I come across at the flea market!
Just gorgeous!

picnic silverware

Here's some close-ups of the reusable, fabric silverware pouches we are loving for indoor or outdoor picnics.  We even stapled a little salt and pepper to the back of the spoon and fork tags.  Aren't they cute?

around the shop

Well, its too hot for an outdoor picnic around here these days, so set up a lovely indoor one instead!  An indigo table cloth as your "picnic blanket" backdrop, lemonade and individual silverware holders with bamboo silverware!  The perks of a picnic, but with air conditioning!
And a few more little snippets from around the shop this last month...

what a month...

and then some.
Is it really June already?

The month of May was an absolute whirlwind.  Between buying trips and visiting California, meeting our newest (19th!) grandbaby in Chicago, going to Dallas for the graduation of our 5th child and to meet his new fiance (!) and all the rest of day to day life, it seems to have passed me by in a blur.  
Now, I am back and ready to regroup.  

My daughter-in-law Sara and our newest little Gracie.
Back porch dinners in Chicago.  Simply glorious!
I'm sorry, but is she not just the cutest thing you have ever seen?
Grandkids swimming at our hotel pool in Chicago.
Cannot believe I have another graduate!
With my 5th born.
Alex and his lovely bride-to-be, Mary Brigid.
Some healthy competition with future in-laws.  Burches vs. Coutures soccer.
Here's to a great summer!
