This 18th century commode from France has an important yet relaxed presence and looks wonderful with the light neutrals including the mohair covered bench, shown. The bundled books are $28.00 a set of 3.

 A BIG BUZZ ON OUR STREET!!!  Thursday afternoons are the best time to visit the shop...we now have a top rated farmers market on Beechwood Road from 2:30 open until 8 pm can do your food shopping after you stop by my store!!!  I can't tell you how happy it makes me to avoid the food store and stroll and pick everything from fruits and vegetables to FRESH FISH that was swimming in Barnegat that same morning!!  Those smart local guys have been seen grabbing a floral bouquet when they get off the train from the city to take home with them....totally painless!

Some of the many vendors , below....  

 Several local farms have BEAUTIFUL vegetables...even the hard to find veggies often found at the best restaurants.

 I was drooling here and many of you know it's hard to find good fresh bread close to home!  

 You can make your own 20 stem bouquets for $10.00!!  

  Brownie Points is there, too!  We are lucky enough to have Brownie Points permanently right across the street although I pretend not to see them...their duffins are to die for (combination donut muffin)  as well as ALL their creations.

 MOSEFUND FARM, The King of Lard!   Their Mangalista burgers and roasts had the biggest hit with my family. The taste is remarkable as the products come from pasture based farming, with locally raised feed and grazing and having the highest quality diet.  The meat is healthier!

I hope you will patronize the vendors, I'm so proud to have them right here.  Thursdays, from 2:30-8pm on Beechwood Road in Summit, NJ.

Warmest regards,

HOT HOT HOT!!!!  Well, finally got out to the beach this weekend and it felt great to put my feet up.  I have been going full speed seven days a week for months and really needed it.  We took the ferry to Shelter Island and joined the "beautiful people" pretending to be in St. Tropez at Sunset Beach for cocktails and dinner.    

When we got there my niece and I immediately noticed everyone was wearing an unflattering layer of sweat with their backless dresses as its open air and since there was no air moving , hotter than blazes.  It was still fun to people watch and we had some good laughs.  DEFINITELY a scene!!!  

HEY!!! HERE we are......SNORT!!!  

No matter where you end up on the weekends it's always nice to be a great house guest and show up with a memorable gift. Since no one really needs another"life is better at the beach " plaque I have on hand great house gifts that I'm sure will be appreciated.

 A party seems special when the space is shared with something unique as the barn, above.  Sometimes I just pile dinner into a basket midweek and scoot down the hill to the lake to sit at the picnic table near the water. Even when the meal is leftovers it feels special next to the lake. Do you have a special outdoor spot?   

With daily new arrivals its hard to keep up and show you everything....wish I could. The shop window has a redesign to show a comfortable, yet important entry hall featuring Swedish and Gustavian furniture. Stop by!

Just in are 2 framed vintage swimsuits, framed antique fern prints, maps of Nantucket and pieces back from the upholsterer both antique and mid century.  Hope to see you soon......
