Summers Joy

    I heard the locust buzzing in the trees this morning ~ telling me it is truly summer. I have already been to the garden early ,watering, and speaking with the flowers.(yes~ the neighbors know I'm a bit odd) Today's forecast, 95 degrees and humid. SCORCHER!

    I wait all winter to feel the sweet corn and watermelon, and to sit on my sun porch with friends, sharing an icy cold drink.

    Summer flies by so quickly..It has been quite a long time since I've even thought about blogging. Days have been spent in the flower garden,in the sun and the water, and with family and friends. The "Ivy & Twig Girls" hope that you can say the same.
    The Month of July has flown by at Ivy & Twigs. One of our Ivy & Twig Girls (we call her Little Duck) has flown the nest. She has gone to "Big Sky Country " to find love, grow her family, and take the next adventure that life has offered to her. We miss her. She is a joy to know, her style and talents are missed at the shop. Good Luck & much love Little Duck!

    We are busy planning and looking forward to August at Ivy & Twigs. New  merchandise arrives daily. Each time we unwrap, polish and display another treasure, Wesay....."this has got to be our favorite thing" In August the Autumn touches begin to take center stage in many of the shops vinyettes.
    Lanterns are our latest fascination, for indoors or out, they bring light to our tables and shine the way into our homes.
    The lanterns Karen Miller, Owner of Ivy & Twigs, has selected, offer so many possibilities andversatility.
  We are going to feature these lanterns for "Designer Day". Christa Sutton and I will show some  ideas we have for using them inside and out. That means you  will be left  wondering.....what will those Ivy & Twig Girls do with a simple glass hand blown lantern????? Stop by on Designer Day, August 2nd ~ at 3:30 pm in our Design Room and find out.
Also check out our events page for all that we have planned for August. Come and enjoy one or all of the events being offered .  

We always look forward to seeing you.

Let's try and squeeze every last bit out of summer that we can.

Have Fun & Always  BCreative. ~ Dawn Polacek, Manager Ivy & Twigs
