Tables of Spring 2012

Tables of Spring 2012

The shop where we sell Antiques & Uniques has a Spring event each year, we call it “Tables of Spring”. Each vendor decorates a table for Spring using their merchandise. This year Antiques & Uniques is using a potting table as our “Table for Spring” and developed what we call our “Vintage Porch Party” complete with a rusty fork and spoon candlelier !

Savannah ,Georgia

We’ve been on a bit of a respite for the past few days, it’s always fun to travel but then fun to get home safely, too! One of our children lives in Savannah, Georgia, so we’ve been to see him and watch some precious young gymnasts! Check out where we’ve been… www.savannahgeorgia.com ! It’s such a beautiful city and area, if you ever get a chance to go there, you must! So, tomorrow it’s back to work for us. We’ve got to put the finishing touches on my “Table of Spring for 2012” !It starts Thursday in Chickamauga, Georgia!
