#29 and summer is melting...

...the summer feels as if it is melting away.  Is it really the end of July?! 
Hope you've been savoring some small summery moments and sneaking in some fun...

Linking up wiht the gals at Life Rearranged to share a peek at the week...it's been another busy work week, but we snuck in some fun kid stuff and a jaunt to Hudson with Ro to celebrate her 50th...HAPPY BIRTHDAY RO!!!


Laurie rolled in from Michigan on Monday and has been painting all week with lots of cheerleaders...here Rory shows a fave in work...

I love to watch an artist work...



This cardboard clock was in the window of a gallery in Hudson, NY.... 
I think I am in love and need one... 

Here's a peek in my pal Stephanie Lloyd's booth in Hudson...
Can you spy the amazing Jennifer Lanne painted pillows...



We had Chinese take out...and Alayna got the best fortune ever...how fitting for a house guest at our home!!!



Talented Alayna Tillis -- you may recognize her from the piece on her in last years's "Where Women Cook" -- has been here doing a photography internship...we had to shoot the Secret Lab for two upcoming magazine pieces....


And I love this sign in my fave ice cream parlor... LICK again...in HUDSON!!

I was thrilled to see Charlotte's room in "Flea Market Decor".  
It was a total treat to work withe the editors on this...

We love the old and the handmade...this dolly sits on Charlotte's window seat most days.
Here she is with the new Earth Angels Cart Before the Horse exclusive Wee Raggedy dolly...
 I had a lot of kid help this week...with boxes...
And with inventory... 
...but NOT with phones...

 Had to share this non cell phone image...we are getting that lab all set!!!


We are re-photographing EVERY SINGLE piece of inventory for the new site...ugh and wonderful at the same time...

Me and Ro had a fab trip to Hudson...her we visited Ida and Jackie, a fab mom and daughter antiquing duo and proprietors of Ida's Eye on Warren Street...a must see if you are in Hudson...

My new fave Hotcakes...they are tough for me to resist.

Hope you had a SUPER week whatever you were up to...
xxoo Jen
