On Memorial Day Ron, Maddie and I went to the cemetery to visit my father & Ron's father's grave site.
As usual the cemetery was quite grand on Memorial Day. The flags lined the streets and waved majestically in the wind. It sure stirs such patriotism in ones heart and gut. We were lucky to arrive in time to catch the tail end of the Masonics ceremony. There was a gentleman playing bag pipes so beautifully. Maddie didn't think highly of the sound of bag pipes. I guess it is an acquired thing or maybe it comes with age.
Right smack next door to Susan's store is another incredible store called "Great Stuff". I could not walk away with getting the winged doll, pictured above. I am now on the hunt for other real bird wings to put on a few other vintage dolls I have. How did I not think of this??? Two things I love most (ok, there are a ton more) cracked, stained, a bit scary dolls and wings.
I was salivating over many things including never seen before airplane & doll molds, a to die for rosary bead chandelier (believe it was $4500...crap) and so many other things that I just have to dream about winning the lotto to get or maybe just a second job.
Wow! I dropped off a few items at Susan's store and I was completely blown away by all the gotta haves. Alas, my pocketbook would not let me have my way. :(
Susan has such a knack for finding the most beautiful things & then having the innate ability to know just how to stage them, to pair them against something that are so opposite but compliment each other. I just am in awe of her talent. I almost had to take a chill pill my heart was racing so with each turn. There was a vintage rosary necklace that I lusted after. At $550 maybe my family can pool their funds & get it for my birthday along with 50 other things I simply can't do without. :)
I always hope that there will be a point in my life (God I hope soon) that I will think I have enough. Susan's store is not helping achieve that. If you are in Georgetown please stop in and experience "Home" and "Great Stuff". You will not be sorry. I think they are open Wed thru Saturday only.
