Today, it's all about my friend Anita....

There she is with Kathy, Anita has a shop in her home.
VINTIQUITIES in Somers Montana on Flathead lake.  It's right on highway 93, at the north end of the lake.  I use to always admire the cute yellow house every time we drove by.  About 2 years ago my friend and neighbor, Carmen, told me a new shop had opened in the yellow house in Somers.  By knowing house I knew it had to be good.  Well, it's better then good!!  Anita and I have become friends.  But sometimes I think she thinks I'm stalking her.  I kind of hang around, not wanting to leave because I see so much.
It's the most beautiful place to have a shop.

Here is the sign up by the highway.
Isn't that the coolest thing?!
The property is kind of low from the road so the tree really helps you see the sign.

Of course they made the sign!
Her and her husband, Dennis.

OK, I'm not going to talk  all the way through this.  Maybe a little.

I want you to know, Anita found these bottles in the mud on a lake, or something like that.
She had truck loads.
I helped her pick through them when they were still on the truck.
So fun!

Anita makes or puts together all the window treatments.
Well, Anita does everything.

Look at that view!!
Look at the chair!!

Look at that arbor!!
When she said it's for sale Kathy and I looked at each other and I'm sure we both were trying to figure out a way to get it to Orlando.
It comes apart, nothing is nailed or glued together.

Fancy Flea would be so awesome!!
I don't think the airlines would like it.
Our suitcases were overweight 3 pounds each and they got a little upset.

See how Dennis put it together?!
Like Lincoln Logs, remember them? 

Look at all the wonderful rust!!

This shed is next door up the hill.
You see a lot of this in Montana.


Anita has 2 green thumbs!!
Peonies getting ready to bloom.
When I go back in July they will be all done.
Anita, will you dry some for me please?!!

This is on the other side of the hill next to Anita.
I thought it was so beautiful, this old wooden stairway overgrown with wild flowers.
I kept hearing a dog bark, but could see him at first.

Zoomed in, there he/she was!!

There is nother sweeter then the face of a Golden Retriever!!
Singing to us!!

Tell her you know me!!
She will become your friend.

Have a wonderful Tuesday my friends.
