Whenever I visit my good friend Paula in Connecticut, I love to stop in and see our friend Deanna at Gather, her charming shop in Ivoryton.
I have posted about it before but couldn't resist taking a few more pictures to share. It is the kind of shop that is visited daily by the neighborhood kids who stop in for soda pop and candy.... ...Yet, you can always find a lovely and unique gift here...no matter who you are shopping for.
Folks are always bringing in things to sell on consignment.... ...you just never know what you will find!
Deanna, her family members and staff are all so welcoming and friendly... If you are anywhere near the area this summer, be sure to include a stop at Gather!
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the fact that you stop by and often leave a comment to let me know you were here. Please know that even if you don't hear back from me, I am grateful for your visit and your kind words.
Our family has several wonderful milestones and celebrations this spring... ...we are so proud of our son Dan who will be graduating from Buffalo Law School this Saturday and two of our nephews, Joseph and James are celebrating graduations too.
But, like every family, there are also concerns and recently we have become aware of a serious health concern for my lovely mother. I would be most grateful if you would keep her in your prayers.
Have a good night and a great day tomorrow....the weekend is almost here! :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
