Lazy Days of Summer?

"Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit." - Henry David Thoreau

I am amazed that July is so near to being over! It has been a fast and full month of ups and downs, work and play, singing and sadness. Barry (husband) and I are still settling in to our new abode but so very pleased our condo sold so fast, especially in this market. We're experimenting with downtown living and finding we love its walkability and urban appeal. There certainly are many condos on the market downtown to choose from and priced very well right now. However, we found the square footage is much, much, much smaller and that posed a problem for my beautiful Bernhardt Martha Stewart four poster bed. This is from her Seal Harbor collection and has spire-like posts that went wonderfully in our post tray-ceiling bedroom. Alas, we have no tray ceiling now! So, I am offering up my gorgeous bed frame for the highest bidder, of course. It is queen size which makes its dimensions 68.125"Wx91"Dx90.25"H. Now those spire post do screw off half way down for portability but there is nothing light weight about this bed. It is built to last! It has an antique cherry finish and is only about five years old. Please direct any offers to me (Susan) at the store.

Now I also must let you know that we carry a line of hand blown glass art from local artists that range in objects from jewelry to vases, from beverage glasses to soap dishes. These artists are from the Burning Tree Studio and offer pieces using a variety of techniques including blown, fused, torched and stained. I am fortunate to have talked them into displaying their work here at my store during their off-blowing summer months and between craft shows. Please stop by and see their unique array of glass gifts. Their web site is listed under my favorites things!

Oh, did I mention that these artists are my son, Brett McKey, and his girlfriend, Kyle Tufford? :)
