Alright-- I've changed my mind. In case you happened to stop by earlier you may be wondering where my other post went... but I just realized that I'd already posted some nautical themed pieces recently. Given that June is just a day away, it's a great time to celebrate the coming summer with its patio garden parties,  farmer's markets,  cool evenings  ( at least occasional ones ) on the front porch,  and cooking up fresh recipes in the kitchen with locally grown produce ...I always get so excited when our farmer's market opens here in Buffalo-- with offerings of fresh veggies, perennials, jams and honey, maple syrup, home baked breads, hand made clothing and crafts.... nothing could be finer!
here are some fun new listings from 5gardenias to celebrate the sweet month of June and the first days of summer ( even though the summer heat has made a strong debut in Buffalo this May already!):
vintage farm stand berry baskets, handmade aqua gingham apron from 1960s, vintage hand crocheted striped throw, vintage collection of 1960s-70s raffia and lucite beverage cups.
May your Wednesday be full of creativity! Thanks for stopping in   : )
