Have you ever gone to one of those awesomely huge fantastic Sunday buffets? Where there are tables of breakfast choices, then made to order omelets and waffles, and other tables full of salads and vegetables and sliced meats and then tables full of breads and caramel rolls and then finally tables full of DESSERTS? Your mouth is watering cuz everything looks sooooo good and you want some of everything but pretty soon your stomach is saying FULL and you have to discretely unbutton your pants - but your eyes and mouth are still saying MORE..........
That is what Second Hand Rose is like this month. There is some of EVERYTHING and my mouth was watering cuz I wanted it all but my head kept saying "You don't have room for all of that".

Oh my gosh, everyones spot is STUFFED - I don't even know how we are going to get you all in on Thursday morning - and the best part of it all is that only Gail and Barb are done setting up (they always have to be first!!) and everyone else is partially done and still bringing MORE!! So some photos to make your mouths water.......................

The deck is open and already getting full of fun outdoor stuff - and I still have a trailer load to bring!! Love the red chair!

A whole bunch of goodies - and I especially like the train background!

Don't you just love the yellow and blue together?
A to die for feeder!
A mix of contemporary glass and formal chair!

Love the aqua!

This flamingo wants to live at my house!!

Orange just makes me smile!

Oops, she snuck in early!!

And he wanted in too - I wasn't gonna argue with him!!

There are lots and lots of trunks, small, medium and large!!

And lots and lots of wire baskets!

Gail's spot - black and white and all done!!

One of Ted's cupboards - gotta love that green door!

Love those teal shades!

Summertime Snippets!

Today I finally got my gardens raked out - and there was stuff growing under the leaves!! Not just weeds either! I have buds on my tulips, one crocus is blooming, my poppies are popping up everywhere, my roses are coming back, irises and lilies are everywhere and my peonies are making a major comeback! Such an exciting time of year don't you think?
But that isn't all that is going on...................I stopped by the shop the other day and was starting to see movement and growth for the May sale! MaryAnn had brought in a huge old bench that would look great on any front porch or in a garden (well, actually I thought it would look good in MY garden!). I saw a great little pinkish chippy painted farm table and some great chippy painted metal chairs that would be good inside or out!
Mike and I have been working on a few things too.............I'll give you a sneak peek and see if you can figure them out!

Thanks So Much!!

The April sale is over and it was AWESOME!! We were almost stampeded on Thursday morning. I was trying to catch photos as you all came thru the front door and almost got ran over!! Don't know why I didn't think to take photos when you were all lined up outside! The weather was great, the sales were great and as usual - our customers were fun, friendly and ready to shop!! Thanks everyone - see you in May!! I'm thinking lots of garden stuff and cabin stuff and opening fishing kind of stuff and Gail will be back with her great upholstered pieces - should be a good one!!
