My family recently celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary with a family trip to North Carolina. It was so wonderful to all be together and share all our laughs (and driving mishaps)and stories with each other. While in North Carolina, I was inspired by the beautiful architecture and gardens we visited. We went in many independent artisan shops that also inspired me with their creativity. I have so many wonderful ideas to bring my inspirations & adventures back to the shop. Be sure to visit us and let us help you celebrate all the special moments in your life! And, I promise to be nicer to the woman on the GPS who had me driving down every back road in NC!

Every time we return from market, we are always asked what is the hot color we saw a lot. This market we saw a lot of wonderful shades of yellow. It has been a while since we had much yellow in the shop, but yellow will be well represented in the shop this fall. Yellow always puts a smile on my face. It is bright, cheery, and welcoming. And if you are afraid to go full force with yellow, add simple accents in this luscious color. Deep mustard yellows are paired with intense oxblood reds for a Tuscany Italian look. Pale yellows mixed with neutrals & grays give an airy country French look. Both of these looks will be found in decorative accessories, pillows, prints, & more this fall. Come in today & let us help you add yellow to your decor.
