aha! June?

Okay, according to the National Weather Service, this has been the wettest spring so far around here. It also has been the warmest. Which makes me think that maybe we are headed to become a tropical rainforest. I DO NOT LIKE THE RAIN. At least, not so much of it. Although it definitively has its upside:  No need to water the garden. Everything is so lush and green. I have never had so many fat blooms on my roses.

one… and so many more to come!

However, I am also a shop owner. And right now, my store is full of the cutest summer dresses. They beg to be worn on a sunny, hot summer day. After all, we are fast approaching solstice and then the days will get shorter… again. Maybe you are taking a summer vacation once school is out. Or the weather around here turns for the better – either way, have a look!

The weather gods must have heard me: the sun IS coming out. And while I can’t wait for it to warm my skin… I do love how the rain created this lushness:

We have been so sun deprived in dear Portland that my heart literally skipped a beat when I rearranged my racks!

I am so pleased with this arrangement, it feels like sun and warmth just looking at it:

This rack sits right across from the counter, so every time I raise my head, my eyes fall upon the red, whites and purples. Working the store for many hours, I need calm and serenity around me.  Both Naomi and I have a similar need and sense for that.  She arranges her jewelry in much the same color fashion: hues that go together, grouped in a non-invasive way.

Also, yesterday, I received a new shipment by Neesha – lovely flowing jerseys, t-shirts, skirts and dresses:

Now, all I need to make me REAL happy is some ACTUAL SUN!
