Susie picked the winner!

This morning Audrey and I headed north to Susie’s Bittersweet Treasures in Rochester, NH and we were pleasantly surprised to find the traffic very light on this Memorial Day weekend. Smooth sailing all the way! And even though the skies were gray, our day was so much fun!

When we drove into Susie’s shop/home, the outside  was just as quaint and inviting as I remembered from my visit there a few years ago. 

Take a little stroll around and see for yourself…


…the shop is on the left side of the building….020

…and her home is on the right. What a great set up!










And inside was just as delightful!











Susie had a table all ready for us to set up with the summer issue and the wonderful birdhouse she donated for the giveaway was just waiting for the lucky winner!



She  took us in her perfectly prim home and she had some yummy snacks and gift baskets for us… she and her staff and friends really spoiled us!074



We had a wonderful time meeting and chatting with so many of Susie’s loyal customers and hearing stories of all the fun events she has at the store. It’s clear that she loves her business and customers and they love her!

One of her customers brought her copy of the spring issue of the magazine to show us how ‘well read’ it is!! 


Our time there was over before we knew it and Susie reached into the yellowware bowl and picked the winning slip ….097

And the lucky winner of the birdhouse is….098

…Linda from Simply Country Seasons blog! Congratulations Linda, we will be getting in touch with you so we can mail out the birdhouse! You are going to love it!

It was just a delightful afternoon and we want to thank Susie and her wonderful staff and friends for making us feel so welcome! You check out Susie’s website by clicking ~here~.


And if that wasn’t enough fun for one day, after leaving Susie’s, we just had to make a stop at the Stonewall Kitchen Warehouse store in Rochester…


…oh my….we sampled lots of goodies and brought a few home for ourselves! 


Haven’t heard of Stonewall Kitchen…. then click ~here~! 


We’d like to wish you all a safe and Happy Memorial Day weekend.  May we keep the true meaning of this holiday in our hearts all year long!

Prim Blessings, Linda and the APP staff
